    Tirg & Dave:

    I am investing in India through the ETF IIF

    Just found an article about it

    I have made over 100% return on the investment.

    I have also bought an ETF based on the S & P Latin American 40 Index, so I have holdings in Brazil, Mexico & Chile.

    The following will tell yyou the most about the entrails of an ETF

    There is a mutual fund that covers Israel but the costs are out of sight

    Shalom and Caio

    Um Larry

      • Thanks Dave and Dubi.
        One of the real problems with the Indian market is that up until recently the market was closed to people who are not citizens of India. The only way to get into the market is through ADRs, which means that you lose some of the leverage of investing in Rupees.

        Don't if you are aware of the loss of chickens because of Hurricane Katrina. Over 1 million birds were killed. This should open up the market for pork in the short term. Some of the loss was in northern and western Georgia.
