    A Steady Emerging Market Investors Aren’t Impressed With

    Taiwanese stock are often among the least volatile in the emerging markets space and the iShares MSCI Taiwan ETF (EWT) is up 13% year-to-date, but the global investors don't appear enthusiastic about the country's equity market. To some extent, Taiwan has been caught in the middle of the US/China trade spat, but EWT's performance indicates Taiwan is flexing its independence rather than siding with China as China would prefer. While Chinese President Xi Jinping supports the notion that China and Taiwan must stand together unified, the U.S., on the other hand, supports the country’s efforts to stay independent.

    Asia ETFs Could Indirectly Benefit from U.S., China Trade War

    As the U.S. and China duke it out over the ongoing trade war disputes, other Asian economies and country-specific ETFs could benefit from the side. Some researchers argue that countries exporting similar products that compete with China could end up as beneficiaries in the trade war between the U.S. and China, the Wall Street Journal reports.
