Performance of ACWI

The performance of the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI) depends on the performance of the above global indicators. It’s important for investors to track the performance of these indicators to understand global market movement.

The most important indicators for this week are the US jobs report and the manufacturing PMI of the major developed (EFA) and emerging nations (EEM).

The change in demographics in the emerging economies and various policy reforms from governments of emerging nations could be major economic drivers.
