    Investors have just been reminded as to why shares are often described as “risk assets” with a swift correction lower over the past couple of weeks.  A 400 point fall in the FTSE 100 represents a 5.85% retrace from the mid January highs at 6867 and is largely explained as a result of further weakening in Emerging Markets (EM) impacting global indices.
