The Emerging Markets ETF $EEM Sell Off Is Not Over Yet

Lately, many talking heads in the financial news have been calling a bottom in the emerging markets. Please note, the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEARCA:EEM) topped out on January 26, 2018 at $52.08 a share. At that time, all of the major stock indexes also topped out and staged a minor correction before moving higher into September. The EEM never recovered and simply continued to decline into October 29, 2018. This low was when the Shanghai (China) market found a near term bottom. So we can easily see how tightly related the Chinese market is to the EEM. Currently, the EEM is trading at $38.98 a share which is still above the October low pivot. A weekly chart close below the October 29th low will signal another leg down for the EEM. The next major support level for this highly popular ETF will be around the $34.50 area. So it is critical for this to hold up at this time. Either way, this is now a traders market, so be patient and wait for these important technical levels to come into play.
