This 7% Yielding ETF Was Ravaged By Ukraine War. Is Now The Time To Buy? - SAP (NYSE:SAP), iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund (ARCA:EWG)


The iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund is down roughly 39% year-to-date, after hitting a high of $33.51 back in January 2022. The steepest decline in the exchange traded fund took place shortly after Russia decided to mobilize its troops into Ukraine as a “specialty military operation,” which took place in February 2022.

As a result, Germany’s economy was hit hard by the reduction and eventual closure of the Nord Stream pipeline, and macroeconomic headwinds sent a shock through German equities.

Now that the ETF has fallen by 39%, it may be an opportune time to open a position in the fund, to mitigate systematic dangers in the American stock market.
