    These are for one week only. Can you get these rates for longer terms?

    Edited: after actually looking at the BEA website.

    Quiet right - we did discuss it and the return was negative.

    2822 14.9 200 FTSE China A50 2980
    2823 14.9 100 FTSE China A50 1490
    3188 44.5 200 CSI 300 8900
    7500 6.38 100 Hang Seng Index 638
    2828 110.7 200 Hang Seng China Enterprises 23400
    7200 10.56 100 Hang Seng Index 1056
    7300 5.2 100 Hang Seng Index 520
    7322 10.42 100 S&P 500 1042


    The above are the most traded ETFs on HK stock exchange.
    btw, 7200, 7300, 7322 and 7500 are inverse product. if Index goes up, those ETFs go down, and vice versa.

    Oh lordy lord .. are you bored of the demonstration threads? You're really just randomly copy pasting shit here. And I am unable to figure out what your agenda is.

    Randomly - 7200 is a not an inverse product its is a 2x product not an inverse product. (Not faimilar with the rest, but some of them are -1x / -2x etc)

    Any thing that you cannot quantify and explain to your grandmother should not be recommended. (i.e. why a currency is your favorite, how short term deposits work and why one should or should not invest in randomly copy pasted stock codes...)

    and don't try to be too smart on the 2x etfs.. it comes with a negative gamma effect. to @shri :: jrkob can explain to what that is but i doubt even if you drink all the beer that you are offering to buy both of us you will have clear visual of what it means..

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a bond ETF to complement IWDA and EIMI?
