EEM “has seen an even steeper selloff than U.S. stocks this year, falling more than 11 percent in the first two weeks of 2016. However, Gordon sees the emerging markets fund falling even farther, to the $20 level, which would be another 30 percent drop from where the ETF closed on Friday,” according to CNBC.
India, Asia’s third-largest economy, is widely believed to be one of the sturdier emerging markets, but U.S.-listed ETFs tracking Indian stocks have struggled over the past year. Over the short-term, India has benefited from cheap energy prices as the country is one of the largest importers of crude oil. Looking further out, economic reforms, including more business-friendly and growth-oriented policies, could help support growth over the medium-term.
