I have received numerous queries on the current situation in Thailand since the violence on Saturday, April 12, where 21 people were killed and over 800 injured.  We believe that this clash, the worst in 2 decades, will definitely result in political changes for the country with more political participation of the “red shirts”, who form the core of the protest movements that are considered anti-government. We are more bullish on the long-term opportunities for the Thai economy and market. We believe the declaration of emergency rule in Bangkok, the Thai capital, will not change the situation and may even result in ...

Stock market development has an important role to play in economic development. Shahbaz and his friends (2008) argue that stock market development is an important wheel for economic growth as there is a long-run relationship between stock market development and economic growth. Stock market development has the direct impact in corporate finance and economic development.   Gerald (2006) states that stock market development is important because financial intermediation supports the investment process by mobilizing household and foreign savings for investment by firms.

July and Emerging Markets - Gold Speculator
There's no shortage of bleak news out there that's weighing heavily on the markets, but we could be coming into a positive period for emerging markets investors. The chart below, from Jim Lowell at Dow Jones MarketWatch, shows that July tends to be a good month for emerging market equities. The sector's beta-weighted performance in July tops 2 percent on average, far greater than any other asset class on the chart. Of course, emerging markets can be highly volatile and there's no assurance that this month will follow the pattern. But Lowell's observation is certainly timely and may be of value to ... market research, surveys and trends


Emerging-Market Bonds Extend Lead Over U.S. Corporate Debt: Credit ...
Emerging-market bonds, with returns four times those of U.S. corporate debt, are extending their lead on signs that developing nations are growing faster than the world’s biggest economies.

Petroleos de Venezuela SA, the state oil producer known as PDVSA, returned 6.64 percent this month, driving emerging-market debt’s 0.09 percent gain, compared with a 0.39 percent loss for U.S. corporate bonds.

Harvard endowment falls from $36.9 billion to $26 billion ...
(HMC) reported today that the University’s endowment was valued at $26.0 billion as of June 30—29.5 percent less than the record $36.9 billion reported for the prior fiscal year.

Abertis Loan Shows Bank Appetite for Mergers: Credit Markets
July 6 (Bloomberg) -- Banks committed as much as 7 billion euros ($8.9 billion) in loans to fund the acquisition of Spain’s Abertis Infraestructuras SA as lenders boost financing for takeovers and shrug off concern that a slowing economy will weaken credit markets. The highway operator’s two main shareholders and buyout firm CVC Capital Partners Ltd. are talks with banks for the biggest leveraged buyout financing commitment since May, when Blackstone LP lined $10 billion of debt to back a failed takeover bid of Fidelity National Information Services Inc. “If this deal goes through, it shows that banks are ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Option Traders Most Confident in Real on Brazil GDP
July 5 (Bloomberg) -- Options traders are showing more confidence in the Brazilian real than any other major currency as Latin America’s biggest economy grows at the fastest pace in 15 years. Three-month implied volatility on real options is 338 basis points, or 3.38 percentage points, less than the currency’s actual price swings, the biggest gap among 16 major currencies, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The reversal shows traders are betting the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

FRB: Speech, Warsh--Market Liquidity: Definitions and Implications ...
Thank you to the Institute of International Bankers for inviting me to speak about liquidity in U.S. financial markets. Certainly, trading activity in recent days has brought additional attention to the subject of market liquidity. It is not my purpose, however, to opine on these very recent market moves--a comprehensive understanding of which may depend on consequent market developments and the fullness of time. I would only note that while premiums on riskier assets rose some last week, markets are functioning well amid higher volatility, market discipline appears effective as investors are reviewing their positions, and ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Post-crash Scenarios for Commodities and 'Turbo-coupled' Emerging ...
According to Ignatius Chithelen, managing partner of Banyan Tree Capital Management, an investment firm in New York City, emerging markets are not de-coupled but rather "turbo-coupled" to developed markets. In this opinion piece, Chithelen describes what he sees on the horizon for emerging markets and for commodities prices in the wake of the global economic crisis. Among his predictions: China will likely emerge as the big winner from the current worldwide recession, and Mexico's recent hedging of its oil exports will lead to a cap on commodities prices over the short to medium term. The recent global financial ...

The entire world is in an economic recession, and each country has felt the devastating effects. Here in America, money has become tighter, jobs fewer, and food prices have gone up considerably. However, as citizens of an astoundingly wealthy, industrialized nation, if we believe that our current situation is disappointingly inopportune, then we would be greatly mistaken. Not only would we be mistaken, we would also be extremely foolish to lament over our petty woes when millions of people in Africa and Asia live--and often die-- in a state of perpetual poverty, under deplorable conditions. Some countries are stupendously rich ...
