    Major Stock Indices Feel The Pain of Multi-Year High Rates

    A sharp rise in the yield of benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury notes sparked a sell-off in stocks that circled global markets. Debt markets are under pressure with bond prices falling rapidly, prompting investors to head toward products like inverse bonds ETFs for a piece of the pie. Japanese companies have not been spared the rout and fell to a four-week low, while crude oil traded near 4-year highs due to a plunge in Iranian exports as a result of U.S. sanctions. Closing the list, Canadian assets were favored last week on news regarding the rescue of the trilateral North American Free Trade Agreement but did not enjoy the highly anticipated inflows for long.

    Asian Stocks: 4 Great Funds for a Far East Surge

    We've all heard that diversification is good for a portfolio. Considering that the U.S. stock market is at record highs, and stocks are about as pricey as they get, investors may want to consider spreading around some of their risk. And Asian stocks might be the best place in the world for that right now. If you want to diversify outside the U.S. market, there's a problem: Most major markets don't look any safer than the U.S. Europe has been underperforming for literally years with no real sign of reversing that trend.

Fortunately, there are some opportunities in Asia - through domestically traded exchange-traded funds (ETFs) - where local markets are either holding firm or turning the corner into bull markets. Here's a look at four funds to buy to get exposure to Asian stocks and defray your risk a bit. SEE ALSO: Emerging-Markets Stocks: 10 Ways to Play the Next Bull Market
