Currency manipulation: US Treasury added Switzerland to watch list

The U.S. Treasury said on Friday that none of the United States' major trading partners is manipulating its currency to gain advantage for its exports; the declaration was an answer to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump that he will be ready to declare China a currency manipulator if he is elected. In its 16th and final currency report under US President Barack Obama, the Treasury said it added Switzerland to a foreign exchange “monitoring list” of countries with high external surpluses or currency market interventions and it kept Taiwan, China, Japan, Germany and South Korea on the list, first launched in April, though, it said, none of the six countries met the standard for enhanced scrutiny under a new trade enforcement law passed in 2015.

Emerging Markets and Commodities. Still Room for Progress

It has been a quite difficult year for stocks markets so far. Despite the barely positive performance of the Standard & Poor’s 500, a modest 4% since January, the European indexes still show an average loss of -7%. Japan is registering a double digit loss, just compensated by a rise in the currency that turns into neutral its performance when calculated in US dollars. The good surprise of 2016 comes from the emerging markets, usually very volatile and vulnerable to global uncertainties. After underperforming for years, the emerging markets are in good shape, in the middle of a bull trend that has started from the major bottom of last January.
