Video: China and The Emerging Markets Top IMF's List of Concerns

Talking Points:

  • There are many catalysts that can spur a systemic risk in today's global financial markets
  • In the preview release of the IMF's Global Financial Stability report, China and EM topped the list of concerns
  • China's integration has leveraged its influence, meanwhile insurance exposure has hit critical levels

See how retail traders are positioning in the majors using the FXCM SSI readings on DailyFX's sentiment page.

The IMF released a preview of its Global Financial Stability report and the top risks were familiar if not top headline fodder as of late. A common sight on the group's list of concerns, China and the Emerging Markets (EM) were repeated as serious concerns going forward. The country's and grouping's responsibility for global growth has accelerated their integration into the global financial system. That has proven a positive development during the boom years where risk appetite helped supplement less-than-remarkable economic growth. Yet, now with the pace receding and risks risks; this integral connection is posing a serious threat to the system. We review the IMF's concerns and review what we should monitor for the China/EM risk in markets and trading going forward in today's Strategy Video.
