The only insight I can provide on "when to buy" is to average in on big dips -- provided you're willing to hold for the long term.
If you look at a long term chart, this sucker is all over the map. Over time, it has really done well, so holding works.
If we get some more fear/panic and get this down a few more points, I'd start buying again. Since I was able to buy quite a bit in all the panic a couple of years ago, I'm not in any hurry until it really looks like a bargain again.
The one negative is, of course, the ongoing capital gains taxes. If you don't like that, then Vanguard's Emerging Market Index Fund is another approach.
