    Australia ETF Could Face A Surprising Headwind

    The iShares MSCI Australia ETF (NYSE: EWA), the largest Australia exchange traded fund listed in the United States, could contend with an issue often reserved for single-country ETFs devoted developing economies: credit risk. Strength in Australian stocks has been facilitated by accomodative monetary policy by the Reserve Bank of Australia. While the Australian economy has dodged a recession for more than three decades, at least one major ratings agency believes the country's AAA credit rating could be imperiled if the economy there weakens.

    An Awesome Ascent For Australia ETF

    The iShares MSCI Australia ETF (EWA) , the largest Australia exchange traded fund listed in the U.S., entered Wednesday with a 20.42% year-to-date and the major local equity benchmark there recently ran to a record high. As is the case with several other major developed markets this year, stocks in Australia are being fueled by expectations of a dovish central bank, in this case the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). The RBA’s dovish stance comes as other global central banks consider more accommodative monetary policies as well to combat the negative effects of slowing global growth and the prospects of a prolonged trade dispute between some of the largest economies in the world.

    Australia ETFs Could Find Support from Central Bank

    Australia country-specific ETFs could get a helping hand from the Reserve Bank of Australia as the central bank cuts interest rates for the second time in as many months to support the resource-rich economy in an increasingly uncertain global outlook. The Australian central bank lowered its official cash rate to a record low 1.00% on Tuesday, down from 1.25% after the cut in June, as policy makers underscored the U.S.-China trade dispute that threatened the global export industry, the Wall Street Journal reports. The RBA's dovish stance comes as other global central banks consider more accommodative monetary policies as well to combat the negative effects of slowing global growth and the prospects of a prolonged trade dispute between some of the largest economies in the world.

    Australia ETF is Hot, But Run Faces Challenges

    Up more than 17% year-to-date, the iShares MSCI Australia ETF (EWA) is one of the best-performing single-country exchange traded funds tracking a developed market outside the U.S. Thanks to comparatively high interest rates, Australia ETFs like EWA sport enticing dividend yields, which can help investors generate current income while expanding the international portions of their portfolios. All of that sounds nice and it is, but some market observers have differing opinions regarding the ability of Australian stocks to continue running higher this year.
