WOW, and I was gonna invest in Funds that focused on Vietnam.  Read an article on Fortune I believe that said they were the next India / China for outsourcing needs.  Good thing I'm...

1) Lazy

2) Not totally sure How I would have gone about it anyway.

I remember reading such things too. The ones I remember were debating the merits of country-specific ETFs. I try to steer clear of anything I don't really understand, and market dynamics in Vietnam, Indonesia, Brazil, or even France definitely fall into that rather large category of investments. Unfortunately, this list also includes energy, commodities, agriculture, and real estate.

Lurky - Apparently it is some 6 month timeframe, but obviously it doesn't say when. Maybe that means it is the last 6 months. I don't know whether or not that's likely; I don't track Vietnam.

Oops... accidental overpost. I see what you mean about the 6 months, FleaBagger :-)  It's very interesting, and I'd like to find a good article on it. I'm googling away...

LurkyLurky,

 Just an assumption, but I believe it would be "time", and more specifically, "days". The left y-axis appears to be the index price, and the right y-axis appears to be volume. The time-frame for the chart here is 6 months, so at that scale it appears to be showing daily volume and index closing price.

Here is an interactive version at Bloomberg:

Investing in Vietnam specifically is very difficult for individuals yet. The only pure-Vietnam ETFs that I'm aware of are these two guys here listed on the london exchange.

Anybody aware of others?

When you go to a wedding/funeral/birthday party and your aunt/uncle/second cousin ask you what you think of XYZ stock, or tell you how much profit they made flipping so and so.

That graph proves crashes exist, we'd have to see the 6 months previous to prove bubbles exist.
