All eight indexes on our world watch list posted gains through September 3, 2019. The top performer is China's Shanghai SSE with an 18.86% gain and in second is France's CAC 40 with a gain of 16.56%. In third is our own S&P 500 with a gain of 15.79%. Coming in last is Hong Kong's Hang Seng with a gain of 1.58%.
I love reading these reports in the echo of all the tariff/earnings/etc. pessimism. China and US markets are among the top 3 YTD. Why the angst?
