CHART: After Rally, World's Big Stock Markets Are Back In Positive Territory For The Year

The Dow was not the only index to shoot back into positive territory this week after a disastrous May. 

After a relatively robust first quarter, where even the FTSE MIB in Italy was up more than 11 per cent, markets across the globe fell into negative territory.

On June 6, the German DAX and Japanese Nikkei also passed back into positive territory (albeit the Nikkei only spent a few days in the red for the year).

The only index to remain in positive territory since the second week of January is China’s Shanghai Stock Exchange, which is now up some 4 per cent.

Below, a look at eight global exchanges in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific.
