Wow, what a difference a year makes in the stock market. While 2017 was a banner year for many foreign ETF‘s as well as the S&P 500, 2018 performance was quite different. The U.S. stock market experienced a loss for the year, while the only foreign markets to experience any growth were in the middle east.
