    Default Foreign Stocks and ETF's

    Some of them are doing just fine, eg VNM which invests in Vietnam.

    Vietnam is a big beneficiary of de-coupling from China. Many Western
    companies moved their factories and investments from China to Vietnam.

    The price action is really impressive. SCTR (Stock Charts True Ranking is 99 !

    In general, they have sucked over the last decade or so vs U.S. stocks. I keep a certain percentage of foreign stocks vs domestic stocks, so to keep this percentage, I've been buying more relatively cheap foreign stocks over the last few years relative to U.S. Hopefully they will catch up one day, so that this strategy pays of. Right now it hasn't, would have been best to have just held U.S. stocks that have done quite well, including since the start of this year.

    I do not have the time to research individual stocks, so stick to index funds. The few times I have followed the advice of people who supposedly knew insiders, I've done VERY badly, so no more of that, so many people are fooled by pumpers who really are not who they say they are.

    The best use of my time is on my own business, which does FAR better than any stock investment can.

    India is a big beneficiary of the USA decoupling from China.
    USA (and the West) invest now heavily in India. And it shows !

    India GDP growth is more than 7 % a year!

    Investing in India might be quite profitable.

    I have looked up at some India ETF's like NFTY, INDA, INDY,
    INDL, PIN, XID.TO, and EPI.

    In my opinion EPI is doing the best.
