Default ZCH - Great way to invest in China - BMO China Equity Hedged to CAD Index ETF

I think this is a great way to invest in China, they have all the most popular state-run companies and other tech companies.

The fund itself is new as of January 2010 but so far has been fairly profitable.

I wish I found out about it sooner because I invested in China Mobile and Unicom, both of which did well until shortly after Vodaphone sold their billions in shares they had in both companies. If I had invested in this ETF I wouldn't have lost money.

Also some stocks like PetroChina and others are quite expensive so most of us could never afford to really buy those stocks separately.

Do note that all of those stocks trade on the NYSE so you have multiple possibilities for currency issues if you are Canadian like me. The stocks are sold in USD on the NYSE, but of course are really sold in RMB in mainland China.
