US stocks have fallen over 7 percent since the beginning of the year. For US traders, investors and anyone with a 401k, this certainly feels like a bear market.
However, the performance of US stocks isn’t nearly as bad as the performance of equities in many other countries around the world. According to the WSJ’s World of Hurt, the biggest loser has been China (Shanghai Composite) which has dropped 32 percent YTD.
Just to put this into perspective, if the Dow dropped 32 percent, it would be near 9000!
The best performing stock markets are Mexico and Taiwan which have been unchanged since the beginning of the year.
