Big EM Debt Selloff Beginning?

Big EM Debt Selloff Beginning?

(Istanbul)

There is a big mess going on in Turkey. The country's spat with the US is playing out in financial markets, and it is really starting to hurt. The Lira is dropping fast, and the country's benchmark bond yield just hit a whopping 20%. The huge losses in the currency and bond market might also lead to a rout and/or chaos in the country's banks, which are now only weakly capitalized.

FINSUM : It is important not to muddle Turkey with other emerging markets, as many of its problems are specific to itself. Still, there are similarities and a renewed widespread selloff does not seem out of the question.
