    How we can invest in Asian currencies ?

    mutual funds?
    I shares?
    other way?
  2. For currencies you need a FX broker.

    I recently migrated to Thinkorswim (from Optionsxpress).
    They have HKD, JPY, THB, SGD.

    IB has more currencies:

    I don't know about asian mutual funds.
    Why not just buy an asian index ETF?
    80% of mutual funds underperfrom their indexes, after all.

    Some nice asian ETFs:
    Japan: EWJ, EWV
    Taiwan: EWT
    China: FXI, FXP, PGJ, GXC
    Chindia: FNI
    Asia: ADRA
    Malaysia: EWM
    Hong Kong: EWH
    South Korea: EWY
    Singapore: EWS
