This week, we look back on a very good few days for markets, thanks of course to long hoped-for news of an effective vaccine for Covid-19. Can markets go on to even greater things from here and will we finally see that rotation back to value?

And then - what chances a tax raid on investment gains? We run the rule over new proposals for CGT.

Important information: The value of investments and the income from them, can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest. Investors should note that the views expressed may no longer be current and may have already been acted upon. Overseas investments will be affected by movements in currency exchange rates. This information is not a personal recommendation for any particular investment. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to an authorised financial adviser.
