- International trading, including direct investments in foreign markets, involves various investment risks, including foreign exchange risk (the possibility that foreign currency will fluctuate in value against the U.S. dollar), increased volatility as compared to the U.S. markets, political, economic and social events that may influence foreign markets or affect the prices of foreign securities, lack of liquidity (foreign markets may have lower trading volumes and fewer listed companies, shorter trading hours and restrictions on the types of securities that foreign investors may buy and sell), and less access to information about foreign companies. Emerging markets, in particular, can be subject to greater social, economic, regulatory, and political uncertainties and can be extremely volatile.
