Global Markets Update: Monday, September 10, 2012

The World, up 2.5%, had a nice spike last week led by Developed Europe, up 3.8%.  However, it's still to early to say if it is anything more than just a bounce back.
  • Germany was up 5% last week, while Italy was up almost 8%.  France also had a good week last week, up 4.6%.
  • Russia spiked over 6% last week, while the remainder of the BRICs lagged the world market.
  • Belgium and Denmark have entered our rankings as "Top 5 Countries," up 30% and 25.9%, respectively, year-to-date.
  • In the US, the style box disparity, which you can see in the graphic below, has narrowed of late with Small and Mid Value closing the gap on Large and Mid Growth.
