#IGForexChat 3: What does the next year hold for emerging market currencies?
- IG presents 'IG Forex Chat 3' – a live discussion focused on what the next 12 months hold for emerging market currencies

Emerging market (EMs) currencies have been particularly volatile in 2018 due to the rise of the dollar, which has increased the cost of dollar-denominated debt and contributed to crises in Argentina, Turkey and Venezuela. These effects could soon spread to other EM currencies such as those used by Chile, Poland and Hungary, which all have a large amount of US debt. Meanwhile the future looks uncertain for the Chinese renminbi and Russian ruble, which are at risk from the effects of Trump's ‘trade war' and international sanctions respectively.
With so much potential for volatility, forex trading provider IG is taking a look at what the next 12 months could hold for currency pairs including USD/CNH, EUR/RUB and USD/TRY. The firm's presenter Sara Walker will be speaking with professional trader Paul Bratby to discuss a broad range of related topics, including:
- The EM currencies to watch over the next 12 months
- How the dollar's valuation will affect EM currencies
- The effects of changing commodity prices
- How the value of the US dollar, Chinese renminbi and Russian ruble will change
There will be a live Q&A during the session, so viewers can put forward any topics they'd like Paul to discuss, or any questions they want answered. They can post questions to the # IGForexChat Community page, or by using #IGForexChat on Twitter or Facebook.
To watch the live video stream, tune in at 6.30pm (UK time) on Thursday 1 November via IG's trading platform, or the company's YouTube, Facebook or Twitter pages. For more information, please contact Irene Castaneda (firstname.lastname@example.org).
