Developing countries are facing a perfect storm, according to Larry Brainard, TS Lombard's chief EM economist. In the research firm's September message to clients, he warned would-be bargain hunters that emerging markets have not neared a bottom. While problems in Turkey and Argentina haven't been "systemic," Brainard wrote that a combination with several other crises now brewing could lead to a broader problem.
Jon Harrison, managing director of EM macro strategy at TS Lombard, wrote in a separate note that India and Mexico stand out as relative safe havens among developing countries. The iShares MSCI India ETF (INDA) is down 4% so far this year, half as much as the broader EM index, while the iShares Mexico ETF (EWW) has inched up 0.44%.
