2. Argentina’s shares stage a rally on MSCI’s possible upgrade in its emerging-market index.
3. Colombia’s central bank raised the benchmark interest rate again. This last hike may be it for a while, especially if the Fed moves slowly.
4. Which EM currencies are most correlated with risk-on/risk-off market sentiment (thus vulnerable to Brexit)?
5. Barclays investor survey asks: “Which asset class do you think will provide the best return in the next three months?”. It shows investor preferences to rotate out of US equities into emerging markets and commodities.
