Are you guilty of herd investing? Always buying at the top and crystalising losses when a market bottoms out? Perhaps you need to be more contrarian.

These brave bottom-fishers look for unloved markets and stocks that have fallen out of favour in the hope that they will benefit from the rebound. That is not to say that all assets that have fallen in value will necessarily return to the previous highs. Some stocks and stock markets lose value for fundamental reasons – retail stocks Blockbuster and Woolworths for example, who fell victim to the rise of e-commerce.

One of the free tools on allows you to rank indices by market performance, revealing the best and worst performers year to date, as well as over one, three and five years.
