Best articles of 2011 – your top picks

In more ways than one, 2011 was a tumultuous but largely satisfying year. That point was perhaps best encapsulated by the events of 5 Aug 11. In the United States the previous day, the market had fallen 5% and there was every likelihood that the local index would follow suit.

It did, which was the reason for Opportunities amid the falls, our most popular (as determined by the number of votes cast rather than average rating) article of the year.
