Global Markets Update: Monday, June 20, 2011

After last week's market actions, we've taken note of the following trends:
  • While last week was a down week almost across the board globally, Emerging & Developed Europe and the US are holding on to their positive returns for the year, as they lead the world regions.
  • Canada and Japan continue to lag the other Group of 7 member countries' performance year-to-date and over the last one year.
  • For the BRICs, Russia continues to lead the group up 5.7% year-to-date and 32% over the last year.
  • As the S&P 500 closed flat last week, only three sectors remain in the red for the year - Basic Materials, Technology & Financials.  Yet, Healthcare remains in the lead year-to-date up 10.3%.
