I would think you would analyze it the same way as anything else. Compare your vehicles against those of the US bond and equity markets for the same time periods.

<<Lastly, why doesn't the Fool have more international content. The financial markets are truly global and capital flows easily. Is the Fool too parochial? Does the Fool need a passport (yes, I know you have a UK site with Financial Times [or do you, there seems to be a recent change] but again it is UK centric). What is needed is a truly international site, not tied to any country or region. The ones that do exist are abysmal relative to Fool standard.>>

My guess is you will see that develop over time.
