iShares MSCI Europe ETF in LSE

iShares MSCI Europe ETF (ticker: IMEU) has been listed in the London Stock Exchange (LSE) for slightly more than one year already. It offers broader market coverage than the iShares DJ STOXX 50 ETF (ticker: EUN) I use to cover European stock market. I am considering IMEU as a replacement for EUN.

Fund Size EUR 771,590,000 EUR 82,674,000

Data taken from http://uk.ishares.com on 09 September 2008.

IMEU fund size is reasonable and tracking error is better than EUN. To examine its trading feasibility, I will need to track its premium/discount, bid-ask spread and buy/sell volume over a couple of weeks.
