Have you ever wondered what your investing IQ is?
Pinnacle Digest's Investor iQ Challenges are the first of their kind on the web. Since launching them in November of 2011, the iQ Challenges have provided our members with the ultimate tool in testing their knowledge across critical sectors.
To kick off the month of April, we have launched our brand new Investor iQ Challenge - Pinnacle's Emerging Markets Investor iQ Challenge, which is likely to be the toughest yet.
Emerging markets will become a staple in everyone's portfolio before you know it.
One of the reasons why North American companies have done so well in the last 24 months is because of growth in their non-North American markets.
Consider this: There were over ten emerging market nations with GDP growth last year above 12%! This translated into massive profits for savvy investors willing to step out of the usual, North American comfort zone.
Investors who have ignored the emerging markets are missing out on huge profit taking opportunities. It's a sector that needs to be capitalized on by all investors.
Pinnacle's Emerging Markets Investor iQ Challenge was designed to test your knowledge within this highly profitable sector, but more importantly, to expand on your knowledge within it. Most, if not all, members of Pinnacle Digest are commodity bulls. Given the fact that much of the demand for raw materials, including precious metals, is coming from the emerging markets, it is imperative we all familiarize ourselves with this sector.
Pinnacle's Emerging Markets Investor iQ Challenge will test your investing strategy when it comes to the sector, political knowledge, relationship comprehension between emerging markets and North America, knowledge of commodity supply and demand issues and future growth forecasting ability.
This iQ challenge contains 15 questions and there is a time limit. Keep an eye on the track above the questions to see where you stand after each answer in comparison to the 'Brainiacs' of our community. At the end of the quiz we will provide in-depth explanations to any questions you may have answered incorrectly.
To this point, the Emerging Markets Investor iQ Challenge has proven to be a difficult one. With that stated, perennial community Brainiac, 'SchiffKnowsBest' has captured the top iQ score once again. SchiffKnowsBest scored an impressive investor iQ of 129 out of 150 on the Emerging Markets iQ Challenge. That will certainly be a tough score to beat, but the door is wide open for you to take a shot at the crown.
TOP 10 Emerging Market iQ Scores as of Friday:
So, if you think you know emerging markets, this is a great way of testing your knowledge and seeing exactly where you stand amongst the Pinnacle community (home to some of the brightest resource investors around). If you are new to emerging market investing, this is a golden opportunity to expand your knowledge within this exciting and highly profitable sector.

Be sure to check the 'Leaderboard' after you have finished the iQ Challenge to see if you cracked the TOP 10. And unless you crack the TOP 10 Leaderboard (which you should be very proud of if you do), your score will only be seen by you.
This new iQ Challenge will test even the most savvy of investors within the Pinnacle community and we don't expect any perfect scores...
