Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) Has Been Trading With An Illness

Rising volatility, underperforming equities (as an asset class) and a stronger US Dollar have seen the Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) suffer.

EEM has traded in a broad sideways range for several months and more recently is trading toward the bottom of that range.

Today we highlight that range, as well as two nearby supports that emerging markets bulls will need to hold to avoid a deeper selloff.

$EEM Emerging Markets ETF “daily” Chart

Today’s chart shows a trading range of roughly $37 to $42.50. EEM touched up near $42 at the end of July but has since fallen to initial support around $38. Should selling continue, the next support is the March low at 36.90. Below that and things could get ugly.
