Is the Brazil ETF Worth the Risk? EWZ $EWZ

By now, most of you know that the country of Brazil has fallen on hard times and is plagued by political turmoil. Enough said about that. The iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF – EWZ :  $EWZ has been around for 17 years. During those 17 years the country has been plagued with hard times and political turmoil. Not much has changed. One picture says a thousand words to the Deep Value ETF Accumulator.

EWZ is worth the risk to me. Sorry, no deep dive analysis here. This is my analysis, short and sweet.

I do not currently have a position in EWZ, but I do intend to initiate a long-term position in this ETF in the future.

Thanks for reading.

    1. Hello Duane.
      I have done a lot of research on Chinese equity ETFs and found them to be favorable for long term investing. When I back-tested all ETFs with a majority exposure to China I found that the best performing ETF was the First Trust Chindia ETF (FNI). I was actually attempting to find the best pure-play Chinese ETF, but FNI has continued to perform well and it has the added benefit of giving me exposure to the Indian equity market. I have not yet found a pure-play Indian or Japanese ETF that performs well over the long haul. As for other foreign funds that I invest in, here is the list: EWW (MEXICO), EWZ (BRAZIL), EWD (SWEDEN), DGS (SMALL CAP EM), DEM (LARGE CAP EM), EZA (SOUTH AFRICA), EWY (SOUTH KOREA), FNI (CHINA/INDIA), PDN (SMALL CAP INTL), DWM (LARGE CAP VALUE INTL), EPP (ASIA EX-JAPAN).

      Thank you for taking notice.
      RHS & FBT have treated us very well also.
      We’re currently showing a profit in EWZ, so this week we’re accumulating some more EWD.
