Investor sentiment towards emerging markets remains bleak.

     Emerging market stocks have lost 10% in dollar terms this month, resulting in a 20% decline over the past three months. In the period between Aug. 19 and 26, emerging market bond funds suffered outflows of nearly $4.2 billion, according to J.P. Morgan. This represents the second-largest volume of weekly redemptions on record and a significantly larger outflow than in February 2014 when fears about the fallout from the end of the U.S. Federal Reserve's quantitative easing program roiled markets.
