Why International Markets Could Soar in 2014

Though the Dow (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) , Nasdaq (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC  ) and S&P (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC  ) were all up today, the biggest story from today's markets came from across the border in Canada, where all eyes were on the Halifax Stock Exchange. The most widely followed index in Canada, the Gillies 100, made history when it rose 4.1% to reach a brand new all time high.

In this segment from Tuesday's edition of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Tim Hanson and Charly Travers cast their eyes northward, to discuss this historic new benchmark for the Canadian index.

The guys take a look at a few key factors in common between the soaring Canadian index and other markets around the world.
