    Nothing to do with xenophobia, China is a big red flag for me with their increasingly restrictive political climate, non democracy, president for life, clamping down on citizens, vauge property rights etc. I would not want my investments tied up in a country such as China.

    Yeah, I tend to agree.. itís something to keep in mind.. Iím prepared to put a small amount through though, under $50k to avoid worrying about the fif taxes.

    The shares may be in USA companies but they are effectively kept in China.
    Is it possible to then get caught up in Chinese rules that change at the whim of the Govt?
