About the Halter USX China Index
The Index, created by the Halter Financial Group and calculated and distributed by the NYSE Arca, is comprised of companies whose common stock is publicly traded in the United States and the majority of whose business is conducted within the People's Republic of China. The Halter USX China Index was created in response to the unique economic opportunities taking place in China, as well as the current dynamics in the United States capital markets. While there is strong demand for Chinese equity, U.S. investors still seek and prefer the transparency offered with a U.S. listing. For a company to be included in the Halter USX China Index it must conduct a majority of its business in China, maintain an average market cap of over $50 million for the preceding 40 trading days, trade on the NYSE, NYSE Amex or NASDAQ and be approved by USX Selection Committee. Investors can gain exposure to the Index by investing in an exchange-traded fund (ETF), the PowerShares Golden Dragon Halter USX China Portfolio (NYSE Arca: PGJ).
