Market Review

  • Emerging market equities dropped in February as US 10-year real yields soared.

  • All sectors were hit hard but Internet and e-commerce in particular, along with cyclical sectors due to the stronger dollar and rise in long term yields, which dragged some commodity prices down.

  • Chinese markets fell the sharpest, mainly due to the resurgence of geopolitical tension with the United States, which weighed on market sentiment. Economic indicators showed a gentle recovery in the consumer and services sectors. Earnings announcements didn’t inspire much enthusiasm but did suggest an encouraging upward trend.

  • Mexico continued to outperform after publishing some brighter economic data, while the other Latin American and Middle Eastern countries were affected by the appreciation of the dollar and weakness of commodity prices.
