LONDON (Reuters) - The U.S.-China trade war escalation has seen nearly $3 billion yanked out of emerging market stocks and bonds this week, financial market flow tracker the Institute of International Finance has estimated.
The rising tensions have seen international investors pull a total of $6.8 billion out of developing markets since last Thursday it added, including more than $2 billion from Chinese equities.
“The current reversal looks similar to the ‘trade tantrum’ experienced in May of this year,” the IIF said.
