Emerging-marketsThe primary drivers for the best move since August last year are:

  1. Oversold conditions on fund flows and sentiment
  2. Fed clarity on rates
  3. A few key emerging markets experiencing political support for their markets in the form of either negative popularity trends which might augur change, or actual reform agenda that has entered into the economic outlook.
