In yesterday’s Chart of the Week: YTD Country Performance, I suggested FINVIZ.com as a source for country performance data.
A commenter was quick to raise some questions about the source data used by FINVIZ.com for their calculation of country returns. Frankly, I am at a loss for exactly how these numbers were derived, though the “U.S. listed stocks only” parenthetical remark has me wondering if the data is derived from ETFs or ADRs.
I can, however, offer three alternative sites for data and charts related to country performance:
- Wall Street Journal International Stock Indices – 13 global indices as well as 59 regional and single country indices, with charts from one day to one year
- CNN Money: World Markets – 27 single country indices
- ETF Screen: Country ETFs and ETF Screen: Regional ETFs – a sortable database of geographical ETFs
