Year Ended 2010 –- World Economy this year .

There are many important events to remember in 2010, first that is European debt crisis, deteriorating economic condition of the U.S. and advance footsteps of Emerging countries. Let first see the result of different countries in year 2010 –
GDP of some Developed countries like Japan  and  U.S.  decreased in Q-2. Where their European counterparts have increased GDP growth rate  in that time frame. Where  the picture is opposite in Q-3, may be due 2nd round of economic problem that Europe is facing this year.

2008 level – Where they are right now .

Past few days I was thinking about the movement of different stock indexes in the world. I want to see how they move from 2008  high level. Indexes like  SENSEX, KOSPI and  JKSE, they have crossed their previous 2008 high  in this year. SENSEX has made a pull back after crossing the 2008 high, where as  JKSE is going to high after beating that level. In spite of Korean tension, KOSPI  is making the move in up ward direction and looking at the volume it looks to me that it may go more. Indexes like DOW JONES, BOVESPA, TAIWAN, FTSE  are close to touch, Brazilian index once missed the chance to touch the 2008 level and in coming days it may re-test that level.
