Hey Nedrac,

I don't know if it's a good way to play the market in China. It seems to me that EWJ holds alot of companies that export goods to the US such as: toyota, honda, nintendo, etc. If anyone have any idea what percentage of the fund is allocated towards companies that invest in China, please share.

The fact that Japan is recovering and the dollar is depreciating have sparked my interest. If the Dollar doesn't depreciate then Japan will export more and hopefully do well. On the other hand, if the Dollar depreciates then investor gets a favorable exchange rate boost. Buying EWJ seems like a good bet, in my opinion.

Any other opinions welcomed.

Pat
