 December 30, 2010 12:42 PM

Among the emerging markets, Taiwan (EWT) reversed its recent up trend and fell 1.45% last week. The selloff was primarily driven by profit taking and concerns over exporters' profitability from a stronger local currency. At the same time, China's central bank announced a 25 basis points rate hike over the weekend to gear up for the fight against inflation. FXI ended last week flat, but the Shanghai Composite has tumbled more than 4% this week.Spain (EWP) dropped 3.5% last week. Markets are still concerned that the debt-riddled Spanish government may be forced to seek a bailout and a new wave of panic would be triggered in the eurozone. There does not seem to be much clarity on this issue ahead.
