Emerging Markets Under Pressure on Interest Rate Expectations; U.S. Relatively Stable

ADVISORY, June 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Developing countries are starting to see more inflows of capital as investors now expect higher interest rates. Emerging markets are beginning to see a slump, moving well off their highs of 2013 on currency concerns. In addition, these emerging economies are also powered by commodities, which have continued to be under pressure for the past few months. The NASDAQ Emerging Markets Index (NQEM) was off by 4.8%, while the NASDAQ Composite Index (IXIC) fell by 0.2%.

"Volatility came back in the market with a week of up and down movements seeing the historical monthly volatility jump from 9% to 12% this past week," said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director, NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes. "Rates are continuing their long overdue comeback with corporate bond prices continuing their fall alongside long term U.S. Treasuries. Tactical plays such as Biotech and Internet have gained traction as investors search out new opportunities."
