I had invested in DBXT CSI 300 ETF.
The ETF is traded as KT4 on SGX.
The one year chart at the time of entry was down-right ugly.
The spark for the trade was an article indicating that nobody in their right mind would invest in China as the country was going to go bust.
I know, sounds silly now, but that was the consensus opinion in June 2014.
In addition, for a while I have been meaning to move investments into ETF to make it start to run on auto-pilot and rebalance once in a while.
The investment thesis was that China will outperform other markets.
The trigger for the sale was to re-balance out of a performing asset into an under-performing ETF i.e. Europe ETF.
Take a look at the chart from June 18 till yesterday, which is when I exited the KT4 trade.
The return was around 18% on capital, after taking into account trading costs.
All in all a pleasant outcome.
This is not to say that all future trades will do as well.
What it does prove is that if you are brave (or foolish), you will (may) reap your reward (suffer).
