Deutsche Bank has produced this graphic comparing total returns in 2015 across a range of equity, currency, debt and commodity markets. Added to this is the underlying reason attributed to the out or under performance. The stellar run in Chinese equities fueled by policy easing has delivered returns in excess of 40% so far this year - and is the stand out performance. A basket of European markets have all delivered in excess of 20% gains, again fueled by central bank policy. Unfortunately the humble ASX didn't feature in the analysis, however, the 9.8% return year to date puts us well ahead of the S&P500 at 3% and just behind the UK FTSE100 at 10%. Chart attached
