Emerging Markets Will Suffer

Not all emerging markets are the same but most will be affected by the rise of interest rates in the United States. But it will only be a temporary worry because history shows it is only the third or forth increase in interest rates that one really has to worry.

The first rate increase hurts, the second rate increase hurts but the markets usually recovers. I would suspect emerging markets including India will be affected when they raise interest rates in December but there will be a recovery. After that be very worried about 2017 and 2018.
