Access to emerging markets

  1. Hi,

    I'm thinking trend following strategies would work nicely in stocks in growing economies, like emerging markets.

    The BRIC countries would be nice but I think to shift the risk/return curve higher you can even look beyond these.

    I have no problems getting historical data for testing purposes from esignal, but which broker would allow you to trade in foreign markets such as:

    *Istanbul Stock Exchange
    *Johennesburg Stock Exchange
    *Lima Stock Exchange
    *Warsaw Stock Exchange
    *Mexican Exchange

    Or even Brazil or Russia for that matter?

    I have checked Interactive Brokers already (I have an account there) but it seems the only real market they have of interest to me in terms of the above excercise is India, and none of the above mentioned markets.

    Any suggestions or pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.

    (Im guessing I would probably have to go with a Full Service broker (Like GS or MS) which has branches in these areas).
