How? What?

Emerging Markets Fund

I've got an account with Vanguard and I like their emerging market fund VEIEX. They also have an associated ETF. It's invested heavily in China, Taiwan, and Brazil.

Question for those investing

Question for those investing in Yen or Yuan currency, or Chinese or Japanese stocks.

Since both companies have large dollar denominated reserves - China has like a trill or more in $ - what impact will that have on A. Currency and B. Equities?

I think as Jim Sinclair does Asia will come out on top

Thomas Jefferson once said, "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground."

Well, I guess he called that one.

FXI is Primarily a China ETF-I hope that helps.

The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the FTSE/Xinhua China 25 index. The fund generally invests at least 90% of assets in securities of the Underlying index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the Underlying index. The Underlying index consists of 25 of the largest and most liquid Chinese companies. It may invest the remainder of assets in securities not included in its Underlying index but which BGFA believes will help the fund track the Underlying index. The fund is nondiversified.

Sounds interesting, I need to research the underlying stocks

stick to etf s... you cant buy china stocks no one can not even peter schiff... open a trade account and look for etf products to buy...

go EuroPac

i made a 10% profit in just a little over 1 month with Schiffs company after i was sick and tired of watching my $ poop the bed in American stocks etc. I trust Schiff with my money, period.

Buy some GM stock

and then just wait a few months.

You can also open an Etrade

You can also open an Etrade Global account, which lets you trade in Canadian Dollars, Japanese Yen, Chinese Yuan, Euros, and Pounds. So, you fund the account with US dollars, do the currency transaction, and then you can trade directly on the Nikkei, HK, TSE, etc. The transaction fees vary based on the exchange, but the most expensive is $35 per transaction for Hong Kong.

Cool, I already have an E*Trade savings account.

great advice

that sounds great... remember schiff is a broker and his rates are very very high

EuroPacific Capital

Peter Schiff's brokerage... although you need some $$ to invest with him to be fully diversified.... I think its $5k US a position.....

If you want to "dabble" with China stocks traded on HK exchange, I think you can signup for an "IB" account (Interactive Brokers). They let you trade on that exchange....

I dont do either... but have considered both...

Thanks

The way I see it: The U.S. will lose then somebody has to win and right now Asian (ex. Japan) is the only bright spot.
