WSJ Tracks Chinese and Asian Focused ETFs

News summary by MFWire's editors

Exchange-traded Fund investors seeking exposure to China and more broadly in Asia get a primer from WSJ Fund Track reporter John Spence in Thursday's column.

Spence points to the iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index Fund (FXI), the largest ETF specializing in Asian stocks, noting out that it has low correlation to the U.S. market. After the plug, he lists PowerShares Golden Dragon Halter USX China Portfolio (PGJ), SPDR S&P China ETF (GXC) and Claymore/AlphaShares China Small Cap ETF (HAO) as other options for those seeking exposure to China.

Short bets, writes Spence, include: ProShares UltraShort FTSE/Xinhua China 25 (FXP).

Moving to Japan, he mentions iShares MSCI Japan Index Fund (EWJ) and iShares MSCI Pacific ex-Japan Index Fund (EPP) along with Vanguard Pacific ETF (VPL), iShares MSCI All Country Asia ex-Japan Index (AAXJ), and SPDR S&P Emerging Asia Pacific ETF (GMF).

ETFs focused on smaller Asian markets include: iShares MSCI Malaysia Index Fund (EWM), iShares MSCI Singapore Index Fund (EWS), iShares South Korea Index Fund (EWY) and iShares MSCI Taiwan Index Fund (EWT).
