     2014 was a challenging year for world markets and for world currencies too. Almost every currency in the world was devalued (more or less) compared to US dollar. Russian ruble (-42%) and Ukraine hryvnia (-47.5%) became "champions" (due to political conflict between those states). UK Pound Sterling and Pakistani Rupee were the strongest. Among the developed markets US was the best (+12.8% price return year-to-date). European markets were, mainly, disappointing (in USD terms, at least). In the emerging world Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Philippines, Kenya, India, Argentina and some other markets showed exciting 2-digits growth. The worst was, again, Russia (45% loss but in USD terms only).

World stock markets 2014 performance (measured by MSCI family of indexes to make things comparable) in USD and local currencies, and currencies performance relative to USD.
