Why are foreign investors pulling out of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand? Could the massive earth changes occurring in these areas have anything to do with it? According to analysts Sakthi Siva and Kin Nang Chik of Credit Suisee, in the past two months alone, foreign investors sold close to $10 billion of their portfolios in emerging Asia ex-China, as data provided by Credit Suisse shows. Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand have “capitulated” to foreign selling, and this year, foreigner investors have net sold $857 million of their portfolio assets in Indonesia (reported in Barron’s Blog and on Yahoo News).
Why the sudden rush to pull investments out of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand? Could it have anything to do with the massive earthquakes and earth changes happening there?
As can be seen from the pictures in the slideshow, massive and destructive land movement and seismic activity has been and is currently happening in these areas. In the last few weeks alone, Indonesia experienced major earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, moving and sinking land, and rising seas. This month, five volcanoes simultaneously erupted in Indonesia within a period of days, shrouding the skies with dark ash clouds and forcing airports to close. And, on Jul 20, massive ground movement in Papua New Guinea destroyed 16 houses, as reported in ABC News.
Per the Zetas of ZetaTalk, Indonesia is low-lying land that is consistently flooding and will be dealing with many disasters in the days to come. They predicted increasing volcanic activity, which is happening now, with five volcanoes erupting within days of each other. They also predict that Malaysia will be in the path of rushing water that will affect even the mainland of Thailand.
The disastrous earth changes predicted by the Zetas are happening with regularity, and they are happening now. Could these disastrous changes be affecting the decision-making of financial investors? Be sure to click LIKE on Facebook and subscribe for future updates.
Financial investors put money into an investment asset in the hopes that it will grow or appreciate into a larger sum of money. Additionally, timing is a very important factor in investing. The more time you have, the more risk you can usually take. The more risk you can take, the better the potential for making money! Due to the disastrous earth changes taking place in these areas – like volcanic eruptions, sinking land, and rising seas – this may not be the best time to invest in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. Earth-change disasters most likely fall outside the comfort zones of most financial investors.
The reason investors are pulling out of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand seems clear. Investors ask themselves questions like “does this investment match my investment goals?” and “is this investment suitable for me?” When the earth trembles and shifts dramatically and volcanoes rumble one after the other, the investment risk becomes too great and it’s time to re-balance investment portfolios, as earth-change, disaster-prone areas are definitely something to be avoided.
Will Taiwan and Korea be next? Is there something that financial investors know that perhaps the rest of us don’t know?
