NATALIA GURUSHINA: Welcome, I’m Natalia Gurushina, Chief Emerging Markets Economist at VanEck. With global rates normalizing, geopolitics still posing major risks, and with one of the longest bull runs in U.S. stocks apparently stalling, 2018 might be a year of paradigm shift. I am here today with VanEck CEO, Jan van Eck, to discuss his outlook, macroeconomic outlook, and also to talk about his views on the most appealing opportunities in this challenging environment. So let me ask you a very simple question first: Is there still an investment case for real assets, including commodities?

Investors are yanking money from emerging-market exchange traded funds as rising interest rates in the U.S. weaken emerging-market assets.
We may already be in another taper tantrum - a major selling spree for emerging market assets - but some investors say it's different this time.
Emerging market currencies are falling back toward earth after an extended run in which they defied gravity—also known as rising U.S. interest rates. U.S. Treasury yields nearly doubled from mid-2016 to the end of 2017, which should have created a great sucking sound among emerging market assets.

Sheila Patel, CEO of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, noted during a recent CNBC interview that a global stock market meltdown isn’t imminent. As the risk of a global trade war is rising, investors are looking toward active management of their portfolios.

After nearly two months of heightened volatility, extreme price dislocation, and dramatically-shifting equity investor expectations, Q1 earnings season begins this week. It is clear that there are multiple factors likely to impact both the tone and direction of equity prices over the near term — this, away from earnings. The last article I wrote for Yahoo Finance two weeks ago was titled “Stocks are vulnerable until Q1 earnings season gets underway.” The closing sentence of that article was: “The wildcard is President Trump.” Both weeks following the publication of that article were characterized by extreme vulnerability, weak price action and Trump playing the role of wildcard.
How will the U.S.-China tariffs affect ETFs holding stocks that are caught in the trade war crossfire?
Emerging economies play an important role in global economic growth. Global growth has been improving gradually since 2H16, with the improvements in various fundamental factors of emerging economies also supporting their economic growth. The iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM), which tracks the performance of the emerging markets (VWO), has risen 20.7% over the past year.
Jan van Eck, CEO, shares his investment outlook. U.S. interest rates are continuing to rise, and Europe looks almost ready to follow suit. As interest rates start to “normalize”, opportunities are opening up in emerging markets and commodities.
