  3. I now what they are not talking about. That "emerging markets" is an euphemism for a third world shithole country.

    all the clever money is now in emerging markets. the edges are a lot easier to exploit due to the lack of liquidity/efficiency. thus, most strategies considered tend to be longer term.

    good old common sense and the 200 ma....

  5. Hi Benjamin,

    I am looking at Turkey, Poland, South Africa, and Indonesia.

    And Russia to some degree.

    I like Latin America (in particular Mexico, Peru, Brazil) but my broker (MS) doesn't offer access to invest in direct stocks in that region.

    Emerging markets have outperformed developed markets for the last 5 years and I believe they will for the next 5 also.

    There is alot of research about this online, like here http://globaledge.msu.edu/resourcedesk/mpi/
