Markets Review

  • In January, emerging markets started the year in negative territory against a backdrop of increased US-China tensions.
  • In China, the PBOC cut its Reserve Requirement Ratio (RRR) by 50 basis points in order to ease financial conditions. However, this wasn’t enough to lift the markets that were down again impacted by weak economic data combined with increased US-China tensions due to concerns regarding headlines about Trump’s potential coming back and that he has discussed with advisers the possibility of imposing a flat 60% tariff on all Chinese imports. Moreover, US government introduced a drafted version of "Biosecure Act" bill in the US House of Representatives, proposing to restrict federally funded medical providers from using foreign adversary biotech companies of concern.
  • Finally, after a solid end of the year, Latin American markets ended the month in negative territory, due to profit taking and weak economic data across the world.
