The global equity correction has unleashed some not insignificant damage on a lot of international markets. It also has (potentially) produced opportunities. Last year was a good year for emerging markets, with several individual countries seeing major breakouts. This year has been a different story as several of those markets have pulled back to test, or lose, their respective breakout levels. One of the more interesting developments comes from Taiwan’s stock market.
As we posted last year, Taiwan’s benchmark Cap Weighted Stock Index (TAIEX) had formed a series of peaks near the 10,000 level stretching all the way back to the mid-1990?s. In June last year, the TAIEX broke out above that base, potentially opening the way to a new long-term bull market. As we surmised, however, the index was likely to test that level before it was ready to embark on a sustainable new bull. Such a test may be underway now.
So is this the epic opportunity that it appears to be? In a Premium Post at The Lyons Share, we lay out what exactly to look for here and how to take advantage of it.
