I am currently following markets such as USA, Australasia, and Frontier Asia.
My latest addition is UK. I would like to hear what experience others had with foreign markets.

I found very interesting link on Frontier Asia.

http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article56934.html

The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid: Golden Opportunity for Frontier Asia

How do we invest in any market?

It is very simple. One has to stay with business that he or she can understand. So far both Pakistan and Vietnam had two of the best bull markets in the world. Which ones will be next?

Appreciate all thoughts.

Legal & General International Index Trust fits the bill

Low cost (Tony Peterson will like that) and changes according to movements.

I think overseas should be considered seriously.

Using Morningstar data the markets for uk investors over one year have changed by
Pacific +35%
Emerging Markets +35%
US +32%
Japan +28%
Europe +18%

Compare UK FTSE 100 +11% and FTSE 250 +6%.

Bargain and great value opportunities can be found in small frontier markets such as Bangladesh and Sri-Lanka as well. They could be next hot markets in Asia after Pakistan, Vietnam and Philippines. Asian-Pacific region should do well.

Some of my favorite foreign markets are the USA and UK.Can somebody name quality UK stock broker which deal with foreigners. Thanks.

Dian,

UK Money Laundering Regulations, plus the new cross board tax reporting requirements coming in mean that it is highly unlikely that a UK broker would wish to take on a foreigner as a client. It is different if it is a UK client working or retiring aboard as they will (or should) know the client and thus may wish to continue the relationship. And it is probably different again if you are a multi-millionaire! However if you do not fit into these categories then I can only suggest you look for a broker in your own country.

As always this is only my opinion and if others on the forum know differently, please correct me.

Thank you Redundant (old timer) for the information. I found some other options like ETF and Index funds exposure to Europe. However, I prefer individual companies because we can do research ourselves easily without depending on others. I also found that there are some changes have taken place in stock brokering area in some countries. I will have to do some research to find out a quality stock broker. Kind regards.

Dian,

A thought. I can buy individual shares in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia etc via my UK Broker's platform (I am resident in the UK and a UK Citizen). Is there not a broker in the country you live in that will allow you to do the same?

Thank you for the reply.

As I said, there are some changes have taken place like some restrictions. Few don’t seem to provide facility to invest in foreign markets like before.

I found one online broker and another broker mainly they trade using derivatives. Currently, I am doing some research to find out a good broker. Now I have few and I am comparing them just like comparing companies in the same sector.

Global markets are rebounding strongly. So far New Zealand market is the top performer up by more than 2%. I expect strong markets in both UK and the USA markets as well.

Hi Dian
Have a look at DeGiro they are Dutch based pan European. Very reasonable dealing costs, however as with all brokers you will have to confirm to anti money laundering regulations.

Global markets are falling. Commodity market is also falling. Short term speculators and punters are active in currency market as well. It is very similar to Brexit. This may be another great opportunity to look for post-election investment opportunities in global markets.

"Any body like foreign markets", well not so much now. I guess this is a buying opportunity, but perhaps not yet. What price a 20%, 30% or more correction? Trump is a business man and I would imagine in the medium term will be good for business, in the US as least. Another punch on the nose for all those chattering, liberals who KNOW they rule the world because they are always right.

Home work! Home work!

This is not the end of the world. Pound should get some support. NZD, AUD and CAD are pretty much vulnerable.

Both DOW and Nikkei 225 are steady when compare with other indexes. In fact DOW hit all time high as well. Volatility cannot be ruled out in both commodity and stock markets in the short run.

Frontier markets are another asset class for some investors and funds.

Going to do a bit of Asia in April and maybe a smidgeon of BRIC.

So far USA financial stocks were some of the top winners during last 30 days. Among Asian frontier markets, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri-Lankan markets should stay firm in December. On the other hand Indian market may have more volatility. Japanese market is also should stay firm in December. DOW is another place to watch.

How about the Common Market ?

I hear you can join very very easily for only £350000 a year, with a guaranteed return of free Army, complete control over your future and that of your kids (who can be conscripted into said army and sent off to die for some Belgian cause). the will invest your cash wisely in Mafia projects and french farmer donations and build a few street lamps and daft projects in the UK to keep you quiet. Over time they will develop a snazzy straight arm salute and give you an armband in black white and red. The money is carefully managed by some strange foreigners with names like Draghi, Tusk, Merkel.

Strongly recommended, but remember the slogan Once in never out.

Connected concerns: The ECSC, The EU, The European Union, The EEC, The EC, The Third Reich , The Junckers organisation 1914 (dominated Germany) Junckers Airlines bringers of Death to UK 1940, and now Jean Claude Junckers bringer of Joy to the World, Europe, the UK, and especially to Scotland.

A considered investment for your future.
