Latin America has been one of the more dynamic regions for economic growth and market performance in previous market performance through 2010. In 2011 both economic and market performance have seen more volatility and uncertainty. Going forward when some uncertainties are removed the area once again should demonstrate a high degree of growth if a business friendly environment can be maintained. This is only true if this remains the case since newer leftist regimes are reasserting their influence which is a negative. Also with better economic growth inflation fears will rise and authorities have been trying to contain these by increasing interest rates and/or raising reserves. 

New ETFs from highly regarded and substantial new providers are also being issued. These may include Charles Schwab's ETFs and Scottrade's Focus Shares which both are issuing new ETFs with low expense ratios and commission free trading at their respective firms. These may also become popular as they become seasoned.
