Last days China is in focus. Unexpectedly high inflation and slowing economic growth dragged Shanghai Composite index 55% from October high.

Another hot stock markets in Viet nam lost all the attractiveness. Country joined World Trade Organization and VNINDEX was one of the best performing in the world. But now country fights with hyper-inflation which is now 25%.

Another emerging markets hit in last days is Russia. Political situation and plunging commodity prices outflow money from market and currency Rubl. These factors make recently RTS index as the worst performing emerging index.

Commodity driven Brazilian index had been averse to global slowdown. But as crude and copper prices are under correction Bovespa index couldn't sustain growth.
