What are the Top Five Global Stock Markets of 2014?

With the first half of 2014 behind us, it’s worth taking a looking at the top-performing global stock markets of 2014.

Over the past few years, U.S. investors have enjoyed the “exorbitant privilege” of investing in a stock market that ranked #1 in 2011 and #5 in 2013 among all its global rivals.

And you can’t blame most investors for thinking:

“Why invest in far-off global stock markets when I can do better sticking close to home?”

However, 2014 is turning out differently.

Despite the U.S. market hitting record highs, it ranks a mere #26 among the 46 global stock markets I follow on a daily basis at my firm Global Guru Capital.

Note that these are all stock markets you can actually invest in through exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Why is this important?
