You're pretty much limited to Hong Kong based indexes. They do list a Chinese futures contract. Check IB's website. They list some tradable contracts out there. Nothing directly available in China. It's still going up so there's no need to let you in yet. Developing market countries *like* investors but they really *hate* foreign based "traders" which are pretty much viewed as leeches. Then there's the issue of who pays taxes on (any) gains and the fact that brokers are often horrible, trading platforms are non-existent and commissions that make Schwab look cheap! Why do you think Swift is opening branches in China? Certainly not to trade Chinese stocks!
