BSE Sensex vs. S&P 500 (US) – Year by Year returns comparison

The chart below displays the returns of BSE Sensex vs. S&P 500 of US since 1981 till date (November 7). What is interesting is that since 2003, we have outperformed S&P 500 on every positive occasion and under-performed S&P 500 whenever the year ended in negative territory. I have used the Open and Close to determine the returns. 2013 seems to be the first occasion when S&P is strongly performing on the positive side compared to the Sensex since the start of the secular world wide bull market of 2003.
