March 9, 2009 is a date etched into the memories of many investors.
That was the day most equity markets hit their lows following months of unprecedented volatility, depressing statistical releases and countless false bottoms.
It also marked the beginning of an impressive rally that saw most major indices climb steadily for the remainder of the year, reclaiming big chunks of the ground lost during the downturn.While the "great rally of '09" boosted most asset classes (and their related exchange-traded funds), some performed far better than others. Below, we highlight the 10 nonleveraged ETFs that have delivered the best performances in the 12 months following the bear market lows of March 2009:
