Additionally, China retail sales are mixed at best this year. “July retail sales rose 13.2% year-on-year, down from 14.3% in 2012 and 17.1% in 2011, indicating slowing consumer activity,” according to Morningstar.

However, HAO’s two-year volatility is 24.7%, slightly below the 25.3% posted by FXI. Plus, HAO’s weight to the technology sector is over 12%, giving the ETF some leverage to soaring Chinese Internet stocks. Yoku Tudou (NasdaqGM: YOKU) and Sohu.com (NasdaqGM: SOHU) are the ETF’s two largest holdings, though HAO does not allocate more than 2.24% to any of its 251 holdings.
