Editors' Note: Tracking Stock and Bond Indexes
Long-time MarketMinder readers may recall the site used to contain a link in the Global Market Update section to a third-party website's chart of the MSCI World Net Return Index. If you look today, you'll notice it's not there. The reason it's disappeared is the third-party site put this and all MSCI index data behind a pay wall. A fine thing for them to do, but one rendering our link to the page null and void.
We've attempted to locate another reliable source we can link to in order to provide this data; however, there's no one-click destination we've been able to uncover to accomplish this. We'll continue to look, and if we find one, we'll add it back.
Until then, for those of you who care to follow the MSCI Index, what follows are step-by-step instructions to access this information reliably and with as much ease as possible. We know this isn't as convenient, and for that we apologize.
In addition, for those wanting to follow a broad bond index, we're including instructions below to access the Bank of America/Merrill Lynch 7-10 Year Corporate-Government Bond Index.
