Options traders are asking for a higher risk premium for the Brazil ETF, EWZ, relative to its historical average in comparison to the Turkey ETF, TUR.  Despite talk on China, the China ETF, FXI, looks stable.  India's ETF, INDA, implies almost no put buying which may be a contrarian signal for bullish investors since INDA is down 3.7% month-to-date.


EWZ - iShares MSCI Brazil ETF

FXI - iShares China Large-Cap ETF

INDA - iShares MSCI India ETF

TUR - iShares MSCI Turkey ETF
