Emerging Markets Trading At Important Inflection Point

It’s been a rough year thus far for investors. And there really haven’t been a lot of areas to hide.

Equities and bonds have been hit hard. Oddly enough, the US Dollar and commodities have fared well (at the same time).

As mentioned, not many equities have been spared. This includes emerging markets. Obviously, Russia (war) and China (economic slowdown) haven’t helped… but this turn lower started over a year ago.

Today, we look at the long-term chart and highlight a critical impasse.

$EEM Emerging Markets ETF “weekly” Trading Chart

As you can see, the Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) has been in a year+ decline. Both the 10-week and 40-week moving averages are downward sloping.

But, more important, the price action has arrived at a critical juncture. As you can see, we have traded into the bullish breakaway gap higher from 2020. Will this area (+/- a few dollars provide support). The $40 area also marks the 61.8 Fibonacci retracement of the 2020 low to 2021 high.
