Below is a look at the year-to-date performance for the major stock market indices of 77 countries around the world, according to Bespoke.

All four of the big BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) emerging markets are down on the year.  China is doing the best of the BRICs with a YTD decline of 1.19%.  India is down 1.32%, while Brazil and Russia are now down double digit percentages.

Brazil and Russia are both having very rough 2013s through mid-April – even Namibia and Jamaica are doing better.

    Let’s see. If you bought the IBOV in July 2009 how much would have made to today? Zero. Brazil. A bastion of capitalism, good sense, and wise decision making. Chuckle. O pais do futuro e sempre sera!

    It is the fifth worst because Brazil isn’t printing money like Japan, USA, EU, etc. This looks bad, but in reality is honest reporting. Do you think the USA economy is strong? Just because its stock market says so doesn’t make it correct.
