From Bespoke Investment Group Site,

With Europe and Asia experiencing big declines over the past couple of days, below is an update of the year to date performance numbers for the major stock market indices of 78 countries around the world.

Overall, Venezuela — propped up by double digit inflation — is up the most so far this year at 70.65%.  Sri Lanka is down the most at -10.90%, but Spain isn’t far behind in the red at -7.65%.

Japan is up the most of the G7 countries with a significant gain of 19.63%.  Germany ranks second in the G7 with a gain of 16.56%, followed by the US and then France.  Canada is doing the worst with a gain of just 2.80%.

The BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China) had been doing much better until this week rolled around.  After big drops over the last three days, China is only up 2.40% on the year.  India is now up just 10.38% YTD, while Brazil and Russia are still up solid double digits.

Stocks around the world have still had a very strong quarter, but this week has sort of put a damper on things.
