Thank for the list. I have been looking for volumes for many of these ETFs.

In terms of strategies for thinly traded ishares, I suspect it is similar to trading closed end funds, where you can lose a good piece of change by placing market orders.

Because the prices of thinly traded stocks can be more volatile and yet orders can sit for an hour without any trades being made, placing limit orders is one way to keep from being sadly disappointed at your buy or sell price.

Buying or selling at the open is another way of feeling that you are buying closer to the underlying value.

One nice feature I notice about ishares is that one can get more up to date NAV info, something that is harder to do with country funds.
