Rising U.S. Yields VS EM Risk
Download Jon Harrison's EM Watch, "Rising U.S. Yields VS EM Risk"
- Rising US Treasury yields have given EM investors cause for concern.
- In the absence of global inflationary pressures, however, the dollar, rather than nominal yields, is the likely most important external driver of EM risk sentiment, and many EM currencies remain undervalued vs the dollar.
