Why falling commodity prices may not upend the EM rally.
By focusing so intensely on U.S. political developments, investors risk missing a silent shift in what has arguably been the strongest driver of global reflation in the last five years: Chinese credit.
The popular backlash against sub-par economic outcomes is giving rise to a form of economic nationalism known as "drawbridge capitalism."
While Chinese growth looks stable into early 2017, a more marked slowdown by the second quarter appears inevitable.
For much of 2016, a unique alignment of push and pull factors has driven strong performance in emerging markets (EM). The election of Republican Donald Trump and Republican majorities in the U.S. Congress on 8 November, however, represents a pivot point.
