Performance of the global market

The iShares MSCI ACWI (ACWI), which tracks the performance of the global markets, rose 2% in November 2017. The performance of the global markets depends on the performances of the developed market (EFA) and the emerging markets (EEM).

In this series, we’ve covered the performances of the services industry for major developed nations, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan (EWJ), the Eurozone (IEV), Spain (EWP), Germany (EWG), and France (EWQ) in November 2017.
