The Crossinvest Asia Momentum Model looks at 11 markets across Asia. It uses a variation of Norman Fosback's Strength Rating to calculate momentum for each of these markets and ranks them accordingly.
This is defined as the Average of Daily Price over 100 Days, 1 Day ago / Average of Daily Price over 100 Days, 15 Days ago
Simplistically the top 3 markets get 60% of the weight equally weighted, the next 4 markets 25% equally weighted, and the last 4 markets 15% equally weighted.
iShares country ETFs are used for each country/market:
EWA US ISHARES MSCI AUSTRALIA ETF
EWH US ISHARES MSCI HONG KONG ETF
EWM US ISHARES MSCI MALAYSIA ETF
EWJ US ISHARES MSCI JAPAN ETF
