Global Markets Update: Monday, September 16, 2013

US Stocks (total return) are up over 20% now, dominating the other 5 asset classes.  It is not unusual to have one asset class dominate, but do not forget that all of the asset classes take their turns through the years.

China, Russia, India & Brazil are down this year.  Greece tops the 5 best performing investable countries in the world this year, up 26.8%.  Also, Japan and the US continue to dominate the G7 Countries with this year's performance.

Healthcare, Consumer Discretion, Financials and Industrials are beating the market this year, and the best style box in 2013 at the end of last week is Small Cap Growth.
