There are a lot of behavioral finance errors that we all make. One common one is the home country bias. People invest most of their money in their own countries markets. Even in small countries, like Thailand, you will find this. It is particularly bad in smaller countries, because they may have only one industry. For example, most of Australia’s economy is mining.


Investing in "Country Specific" ETF's (from USA) is a very difficult conquest.

Some problems are relative volume, Expense Ratio and Average Bid/Ask Ratio and not least of which is currency exchange rates. A screen to cut out some of those results in 32 of 59.
