The Next Eleven (N-11) and ETF's to Position Yourself for Global Gains
The Next 11, or N-11 for short is a term coined by Goldman Sachs' Jim O'Neil who is famous for coining the acronym BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) in 2001. N-11 represents Jim's target economies that have the highest potential of becoming the worlds largest economies in the 21st century. The 11 countries chosen in 2005 are Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Turkey, South Korea, and Vietnam. Of the 11, four countries have shown the most promising advances in GDP known as MIKT ( Mexico, Indonesia, (South) Korea, and Turkey).
Here are a list of ETF's and technical analysis to position yourself to gain from these emerging economies starting with the MIKT.
