      Emerging economies in Asia may be next

      Since the beginning of this year, the manufacturing in Asian countries and regions have experienced low tides due to trade war and other financial incidents. With the Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) dropping below the 50 mark, many emerging market economies in Asia are joining the US and EU in cutting interest rates. This week has seen slight fluctuations in Asian currencies, with dips in the prices of PHP, INR and MYR against USD. Over 10 Asian economies including the Philippines, India, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia may try to boost domestic economy through further interest rate cut. According to a survey of Reuters, Bank Negara Malaysia may keep its benchmark interest rate unchanged on Thursday to save room for further interest rate drop to counteract domestic economic slowdown and uncertainties in global trade.

The latest wave of interest rate drop has driven prices of currencies to their lowest point in many years, which not only causes investors heavy losses but also shakes the global market.
