Indeed, Wendy, these are ETF's that are based in a particular country (except the one for Sub-Saharan Africa). And, indeed, even those tied to the exact same index might vary a bit from the index. However, these are trade-able under the symbol shown.

Also, my list is of 40 countries plus Africa (and will add any others that anyone knows about for a country not currently covered) vs. the 18 you show.

The purpose is slightly different: While yes, I am trying to get the big picture, I am also considering each ETF as a possible investment if a trend looks good and I feel confident about the general world macro. At the moment, I would probably move into some of the ones on my list above, but am still hesitant with all the mixed signals about the current state of the world economy. So, I will keep reading and watching.

Cheers,

Doug
