Emerging Market ETFs Experience Significant Drop

Tickers Mentioned:

Emerging market investors were hit with bad news on several fronts, as distressing economic developments in three separate countries created cause for concern.

India is still reeling on widespread corporate reform meant to address the outdated financial laws that have been manipulated relentlessly by unscrupulous corporations. Simultaneously, the country is taking measures to stop the rapid plunging of the rupee, and the resulting diminished ability of Indian companies to invest abroad.

Meanwhile, Turkey raised interest rates to combat the quickly depreciating value of their currency, the lira. Turkey has been rocked by protests since the late spring, and their economy has in turn remained turbulent. On Aug. 20 the country took drastic measures to prop up the lira, raising rates a whopping 50 basis points.

Another emerging market experiencing major inner turmoil, Brazil, experienced a major setback when their struggling municipal bond market was brought to a complete standstill. On Aug 21 two major banks, Credit Suisse Group (CS) and Bank of America Corp. (BAC) collected $140 million in fees on borrowings, essentially crippling the country's developing bond market.

Emerging market ETFs fell on the bad news. Direxion Daily Emerging Market Bull 3X Shares ($EDC) dropped 6.56 percent to hit $21.50 a share. iShares MSCI Turkey Invest Market Index (TUR) dropped 4.86 to hit $52.58 a share. Direxion Daily Latin America Bull 3X Shares ($LBJ) fell 5.68 percent to hit $18.60 a share. WisdomTree India Earnings ($EPI) fell 4.4 percent to hit $13.70 a share amid high volume.

Direxion Daily India Bull 3X Shares ($INDL) was the biggest loser on the day, dropping 15.29 percent to hit $33.46 a share.
