Hmm... That is interesting. Let me try to translate it a bit for everyone.

Every dot is a listing for one of the global exchanges. The first line gives the current price of that index. The second line denotes the percentage change since January 1. And I'm fairly certain it means that that is the currency that it is traded in. I'd give you exact translations, but its been way too long since high school French

Also, Mois=month and an/ans=year.

Now that that's done I've noticed something. There are quite a number of countries that have shown growth since January, and when I clicked on the 6 months tab that the OP suggested to, only China and Venezuela were in the green. Still trying to get my head warmed up after waking, but what instantly strikes me is that both are severely socialist nations.

Something else is that this map may have to change soon, since China's market will likely show decline soon if their programs to keep demand for their goods fail. Since they are set up much like we were in the Great Depression they depend on exports to keep their economy afloat, so if other nations don't import, they suffer bad. They've been trying to get their people to purchase goods on credit even (uh-oh, sound familiar?) to try and keep people working. Don't think I've heard anything on if its working though.
