Doesn anyone think it's a good idea to invest in these sort of funds now. I mean with all the global turmoil and raising interest rates around the world, is is now a good time to buy if you are looking long term. I've got a China Fund (Challenger), but that's been doing terrible recently. Looking to stretch out a bit to more global funds...but am weary of the global resources, not sure if we're at the peak already. With Emerging markets, things are bound to look good for the long term investor right? BTW - Emerging Market Funds seems to charge a ridiculous MER, is there one which offers one below 2% without have to go wholesale. I'm looking for one with a minimum entry amount (i.e. $1000, and slowly grow with monthly injections).
