The latest podcast is up on WSJ.com! The takeaway: the emerging-market story isn't over, but tread carefully!

Here's the latest DJ FX Trader podcast. My guests say while dollar strength makes sense, Fed tapering talk may be a bit unwarranted.

Story
Tagline
Reporter & Podcaster for The Wall Street Journal & Dow Jones Newswires
Introduction
I cover emerging markets and foreign exchange for Dow Jones and WSJ, which means I write about everything from the Romanian leu to Ghana's bonds to consumers in Brazil. I host the DJ FX Trader podcast each week, where I break down foreign-exchange market craziness with the smartest folks out there. I graduated from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, where I studied multimedia & radio journalism, along with international reporting.
