From the table above, we know that Japan Yen dropped the most against USD YTD (about 10.59%) due to the famous Abenomic pushed by Japan prime minister, followed by Malaysia Ringgit (-6.28%), Indonesia Rupiah (-5.37%) and Taiwan Dollar (-4.35%). Indonesia Rupiah suffered the most today as hot money is getting out from emerging market, as prospect of emerging market turns negative after the drop in prices across the commodities market, lead by current spot light - Crude Oil. There is rising concern over the possibility of default by certain developing countries such as Venezuela and it has resulted in pulling out of investment in emerging markets.
