Don't Overlook the Bengal Tiger

|Includes: EPI, FNI, FXI, INFY, PowerShares India Portfolio ETF (PIN)

Much focus and attention these days among investors, traders, politicians, and the media is on China.  With good reason.  Demographics and a growing economy may make this the "Century of China".

However, there is another Asian economy and market that you shouldn't forget about:  India.  This is a country with a massive population and growing education and business base.  Incremental increases in the growth of lower and middle classes in countries like India and China can have earthquake-like fiscal effects.

Take a look below at the relative performance of the Powershares India ETF (NYSEARCA:PIN) versus the iShares Xinhua China Index (NYSEARCA:FXI).  You might be surprised to see that the India ETF PIN has outperformed the China ETF FXI since the March 9th, 2009 market bottom.
