If you’re reading this, I hope you have not been holding any emerging market currencies. Emerging markets have been taking a beating recently, and their currencies have been especially getting hit. Part of this has to do with the fact that markets are expecting a $FED taper, however, some of it has to do with some structural/fundamental issues. Also, don’t forget about the market aspect. Once a train gets going and catches momentum, its hard to step in front of it and stop it. The US Dollar somehow gets an ill-deserved bad rap about being volatile and or crashing, however, the following currencies will have your heading spinning. Below are a handful of emerging market currencies that have seen a tumble over the recent weeks that have led to multi-year lows or all-time lows relative to the US Dollar ($USDX, $DX_F).
