Common sense says I should have sold all TMA Friday and bought it back today. Oh well. We'll see.

Think since Friday the market is still giving a clever investor an unique opportunity, may be one of the last ones, to go out into cash with a profit or, at least, without serious losses.

Anyone have any thoughts about ESD the Legg mason ETF focusing on emerging market debt?

It is sold at a big discount, and yields about 8%.

Ive heard some say that people shouldnt be in emerging markets or debt right now, but have not had any success for a good answer why in my time investigating. Perhaps someone more knowledgable on here can comment...

Distribution is increasing (from $0.1025 to $0.14 per share), which is good for something to sit on the side and do dividend reinvestment with, or so it seems. Not entrely sure how nations offering their debt relates to domestic or established country rates, as the risk ishigher and thus the interest rate is higher.

Again, besides playing the bond game, it seems to me that something that yields between 7-10% depending upon share price is pretty decent to sit in a div. reinvestment to add some stability to a portfolio at this time...

Thanks!!!

I own 300 shares of ESD. Watch for a gaining dollar....slimchance there. So watch for sellers....but other than the usual interest rate and int'l and quality risks, it pays well.

Yet others say the emerging markets have not yet been played out. I tend to ignore what "experts" have to say. Half the time they're right, half the time they're wrong.

But what about the other 50% of the time?

Mortgage players will present their reports in October and this month does not inspire me with confidence because there is certain magie of figures and events:

1907 Bankers' Panic ... - October 1907
Black Thursday ......... - October 24, 1929
Black Monday ........... - October 19, 1987
Asian flu mini-crash ... - October 27, 1997

Besides, this year is the 10th, 20th and 100th anniversary of 1997, 1987 and 1907 crisises.
