With 2011 now in the rearview mirror I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the best and worst performing countries in 2011. I discovered that Seeking Alpha has a great list of country ET’Fâ€™s by performance over daily, 3 month, 1 year and YTD time periods. Itâ€™s a great resource. Below is a list of the top 10 best and worst performing country ETFâ€™s over the past year.
Despite an up and down year that was difficult to trade, the US actually came out on top with .. no gain! Yes, it was a tough year across world markets with regime changes and debt crises. I personally think it will be another difficult year this year and one that will be tough to trade.
Note: The ARGT data doesnâ€™t appear to be accurate for the 1YR data. It may have something to do with the fact it began trading in March, but it began trading at around $15/share and is at $11/share now, so 0% not possible.
