  • Individual Country ETF Momentum and Trend Update for August 0 comments
    Aug 2, 2009 9:35 PM | about stocks: ECH, EIS, EWA, EWD, EWH, EWM, EWP, EWS, EWT, EWY, EWZ, EZA, FXI, GXC, PGJ, PIN, RSX, THD, TUR
    Below is the data for the individual country ETF momentum and 200 day moving averages. One could purchase the top performing ETFs based on momentum as judged by the 3-6-12 returns or just the 6 month returns.  Another twist an investor could add would be to purchase the underlying securities based on momentum only if they are also trading above their 200 day moving average. Note that all country ETFs are above their 200 day moving average. The top 5 based on the sum of the 3-6-12 month returns are the following, 3 of the top ETFs are China related, so I put the second and third China related ETFs in paranthesis. The theme from this data? ASIA: TUR (turkey) , GXC (china), (PGJ - China related ETF), EWS (singapore), PIN (india), (FXI, also a China related ETF), THD (thailand).
