Strange effects of stimulus

A global slowdown could be good for some

A world of cheaper oil

A lower crude price means very different things in different regions

Markets’ capacity to surprise

China, India finally look good value

Squeezing the last from the property boom

Commercial property shares have made strong gains

Will UK’s mid-Atlantic role last?

Looking to emerging markets in 2014

ETF portfolio tilted towards Asian property

Shares are still the best bet

Tapering holds no fears for me

US retains credibility despite budget row

Washington finally does a deal, and US shares still look well set
