You forgot that's "Ancient Origins", so it went back thousands of years before. The Metal Age Invader refer to Yamnaya/Bronze Age Eurasian Steppe immigration. Every southeast asian should get that component. So it's normal for southeast asian people to get very small percentage of The Metal Age Invader (of course I meant "FTDNA The Ancient Origins Version"). The range will be varied from 3%-7%.

oops ignore this part in my post above, this was a cut and paste from another forum and I accidentally didn't clip that part out. That sentence is totally out of context in how it was presented in this thread (for the record it had to do with peak values for hunter-gatherer).

French Results

I am French from Normandy:
Hunter Gatherer 39%
Farmer 51%
Metal Age Inv. 10%

my Wife also French
Hunter Gatherer 40%
Farmer 49%
Metal Age Inv. 11%

But this doesn't correspond to the value given by geneticians (see Haak "Massive migration from the steppe is a sourcefor Indo-European languages in Europe") French are around Farmer 50% (Brown) it's right but they are more 10% HG (Blue) & 40% Metal Age Inv (Yamnaya Green), It 's all the away around Why?

According to FTDNA, I think Metal Age Invader is mainly related to Yamnaya and Corded Wire Peoples (80% Yamnaya), look at FTDNA Site for the definition of these catagories.
HG are related to Western Hunter Gatherers (Loschbour, Motola, Labrana ). It would be interesting to know where we are located onto the Haak picture like this ones:

I think yes it 's based on principal component analysis done on values of autosomal genes. It 's well explained by Johannes Krause here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dk65TbJRN_A
