We all know that the US stock market(s) collapsed in price in 2008, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_bear_market_of_2007%E2%80%9309.

I was wondering what countries' stock markets went up throughout this period.

Include things like frontier markets and not just developed countries.

I cannot find a data source online.

  • $\begingroup$ Most likely not. You could go to a library and check out The Economist magazine at end of 2008, they have a good table in each issue that recapitulates a large number of stock markets. I would be surprised if you can find a positive one that year. $\endgroup$ – noob2 Feb 2 '18 at 21:42

The stock market in Tunisia seems to have gone up during 2008, however one would have to take into account about 5% of inflation.
