S&P 500 has tripled return of ASX 200 since Sep 2011 intermediate low

The following chart shows the S&P 500 and ASX 200 both priced in US dollars. These indexes tracked very closely from near the 2007 US stock peak until the intermediate low in September 2011. Since then the ASX 200 has rallied 28% and the S&P 500 has rallied 77%, so for that period the return of the S&P is almost triple that of the ASX.
