On the eve of World War I, French capital financed German industry to build Russian ships, launching a cycle of compromising dependencies that ended in all-out war or revolution and default. Today that cycle has returned.

In the years leading up to World War I, Russia was the main battleground in a financial war between France and Germany, the two greatest continental European powers and former and future adversaries of the war. This financial war was played out in the markets of Moscow and St. Petersburg, in a Russian state on the brink of collapse.

In September 1908, French decision-makers vetoed attempts by the Russian government to employ German designers to build a new battleship after learning that Moscow had contracted with German company Blohm & Voss for shipbuilding expertise. French officials were furious. France was the leading financial player in Russia, and Paris did not want French money to support German industry.

Thus, French officials turned to financial war. The following year, they made the crucial loan talks conditional on Russia using a non-German company.

Moscow was not in a position to decline these requests because the French loans were supporting the Russian economy. At the time, French financiers tenuous 12 billion francs of Russian sovereign debt and government securities, Paris holding 43% of sovereign debt. Entities financed by French capital accounted for over 60% of Russia’s strategic metal and energy production.

During this time, German industry was a key destination for Russian spending and, therefore, an end point for French capital flows. Russia has spent a lot on the German arms market, devote tens of thousands of German marks a year to the Essen-based armaments company Krupp. In addition, the German management sat at the top of Russian companies financed entirely by French capital in entities like the Putilov Works of St. Petersburg.

The complexity of these capital flows has led to uncomfortable outcomes for both powers. French capital financed the Russian acquisition of German arms. Krupp, the German company which received Russian contracts, built and shipped a cruiser and three submarines to the Imperial Russian Navy in 1904.

A contemporary observer on the eve of the First World War Put the succinctly: “The carriers of French capital in Russia are… German entrepreneurs. Circular investment made for a heavy interdependence.

Unsurprisingly, this arrangement did not end well for either France or Germany. Ten years later, during World War I, this Russian cruiser built by Krupp chased the German Navy across Southeast Asia. Meanwhile, after the Bolsheviks overthrew the Russian Tsar after three years of war, the new Communist leadership in Moscow in default on 9 billion rubles of French debt, a shock to the French economy so severe that Paris went overnight from net creditor to net debtor.

This implosion of complex capitalistic relations illustrates the dangers of militarized interdependence. In the end, what was once considered economic coercion gave way to economic disaster. During World War I, these capital flows had one of two results: helping the enemy wage all-out war or defaulting on decades of debt after the revolution.

The tragedy of the capital rivalry between France and Germany should serve as a lesson in the feasibility of financial weapons as coercive tools under conditions of financial interdependence.

Shrewd observers have rightly returned to this pre-World War I landscape to capture the nature of the great power competition under conditions economic interdependence and capital rivalry. This time, like now, has seen overlapping trade wars, technological wars, wars of influence and capital rivalries, triggered by the emergence of a rise in power which intended to overthrow the status quo and assume the prerogatives of its economic and military might.

Circular investments of this kind were corrosive to the war capacity of each power. Under the conditions of pre-war financial interdependence, compromising exposures went unnoticed until they exploded. While Russia did not end up using German designs for shipbuilding in 1908, it purchased a battleship directly from the shipyards in Kiel, northern Germany, in 1904. Today, too, the Americans provide a rival who prepares for war. In fact, 92% of Chinese companies funding the People’s Liberation Army’s artificial intelligence modernization are not captured by existing export controls.

Henry Kissinger celebrates blame a diplomatic “doomsday machine” – the intertwined pre-war network of alliances – to encourage war in 1914. The financial misadventures of France and Germany in Russia suggest another danger: a financial “doomsday machine” which makes coercive measures – outside of war – ineffective.

Alvaro Morata set to remain on loan at Juventus amid Barcelona interests, say Sky in Italy.

Spain striker, manager Max Allegri and club officials have held talks amid persistent rumors that Barcelona are preparing to make an offer to Morata’s parent club Atletico Madrid.

The player won’t be leaving Juventus this month and he has shown that he is 100% focused on his work at Turin.

Juve have yet to decide whether they will take the £ 29million (€ 35million) option to sign Morata on a permanent basis, and that will depend on their performance in the second half of the season.

Barcelona are currently very active in the transfer market after receiving a large bank loan. They have already committed over € 60million to Manchester City’s Ferran Torres.

Alvaro Morata has been intrigued by the potential of a move to Barcelona, ​​but Juventus are working to keep him

Meanwhile, Juventus are also interested in the loan of Mauro Icardi from Paris Saint-Germain – but a deal is uncertain due to his injury concerns.

And Juve are not optimistic about a deal for Antonio Rudiger on a free this summer due to the volume of other big clubs courting the German center-back.

Sky Sports News revealed on Monday that PSG, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are all in talks with the Chelsea defender over a pre-contract deal.

Maitland-Niles close on Roma loan

Roma are set to finalize a move to sign Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles – a story that has been working on Sky Sports News journalists Dharmesh Sheth, Lyall Thomas and Gary Cotterill.

The deal under discussion is for a loan until the end of the season with an option to make it permanent. Maitland-Niles has started two Premier League games this season and wanted to join Everton on loan this summer.

The 24-year-old England international’s contract with Arsenal ends in the summer of 2023.

Brereton Diaz ready for stay in Blackburn

Blackburn Rovers don’t want to sell top scorer Ben Brereton Diaz despite huge interest in the player, writes Alain myers.

Sky Sports News understands that Rovers owners Venkys are keen to keep the current squad, which currently occupy the Championship’s automatic promotion spots, intact, and seek to continue to support manager Tony Mowbray in his quest to bring the club back to the top of the league. elite.

Brereton, who has already scored 20 league goals this season, has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs including Leeds and Newcastle.

Blackburn wants to keep coveted goal scorer Ben Brereton Diaz

Mowbray recently said he would not embarrass the player in the future if the right deal is struck, but – with the owners’ position – a decision in January for the Chilean striker seems unlikely.

Brereton still has six months on his current contract, but the club have the option of an additional 12 months.

Villa Wesley forward wants Brazil back

Aston Villa forward Wesley Moraes has requested that his loan to Belgian club Club Brugge be cut short so he can instead return to his native Brazil, according to Rob Dorsett.

Wesley joined Villa from Bruges in the summer of 2019 and Villa wanted the £ 22million signing to have playing time in familiar surroundings, but he played less than half an hour of football in just two matches Champions League so far. season.

It now seems likely that his one-season loan to Belgium will be canceled so he can instead discuss a possible loan deal with Internacional or São Paulo.

Leeds add young Spaniard to U23 squad

Espanyol’s Mateo Joseph Fernandez undergoes medical examination in Leeds, writes Tim Thornton.

He’s a highly rated 18-year-old striker and Leeds beat some tough competition to get him. He will initially integrate their U23 squad.

Cherry veteran Cook changes forests

Nottingham Forest has signed Bournemouth defender Steve Cook, reports Mark McAdam.

A medical examination and documents for a two-and-a-half-year deal were completed on Tuesday. The 30-year-old was Bournemouth’s longest-serving player and was due to testify this summer, which Bournemouth still honors.

Leeds United could rekindle their interest in signing Todd Cantwell after Norwich City are willing to listen to the offers.

The Whites made their first attempt to sign the 23-year-old in 2020 but failed to reach City’s asking price of £ 20million, according to the Mirror.

The winger’s contract at Carrow Road expires this summer, but Norwich has the option of extending the contract for a year if he wishes.

But with the Canaries struggling in the Premier League, The sun reported last week that the club will have to sell one of their key assets in order to make moves in the transfer window, with Max Aarons and Cantwell mentioned.

The Canaries would ideally like to keep Aarons for the remainder of the season, but SunSport understands they have spoken to other clubs about the Cantwell transfer, although there has been “no concrete interest”.

Cantwell has struggled for form this season and appeared to have fallen out of favor with former boss Daniel Farke.

He only started two games for the Canaries under Dean Smith and was last seen in the tunnel in frustration after being substituted against Aston Villa.

HITC reports that Leeds United sporting director Victor Orta could once again acquire Cantwell’s services as he seeks to add a playmaker to his ranks.

The Daily Mail also claimed Cantwell was on Leeds’ shortlist, along with Ross Barkley at Chelsea, Boubacar Kamara (Marseille), John Swift (Reading) and James Maxwell (Rangers).

Cantwell has praised Leeds in the past, praising the club for a “fantastic” season on the ITV football podcast in May earlier this year.

Crypto arbitrage is a unique trading strategy applied by investors in all kinds of asset trading markets. The goal is for investors to capitalize on small price differentials of digital assets across a variety of multiple markets and across many exchanges.

In the case of the OKEx exchange, there are a number of different arbitrage trading options; these are cross-market arbitrage, delivery contract arbitrage, capital rate arbitrage, post-purchase loan + contract hedging arbitrage and currency mining.

All of these types of trading strategies vary in terms of the level of risk, but they can all be implemented by amateur traders with little investment capital. So, without further ado, let’s dive deeper into the types of arbitrage trading.

1. Cross arbitration

OKEx Backup → FTX

FTX’s UDST interest rate is set at 4-5%, which means users can deposit BTC, ETH, among other popular currencies on the OK platform. This unique platform transfers the USDT through a cross currency margin account, makes deposits to the FTX platform for a loan, and provides income. Users can interact with other small coins in the same way, providing the option to borrow low interest coins on the OK platform and deposit them on FTX for loan.

FTX backup → OKEx

Since FTX’s OKB interest rate is below 36.5% OK, traders might consider borrowing OKBs from FTX and depositing them in Savings.
Risks and countermeasures

The price of collateral can fluctuate quickly, as can the fact that it takes time to buy back and close positions. The countermeasure is to use an API to monitor price fluctuations in real time or the platform to provide users with alarm messages / emails. This allows the users to follow the movements of the market and it means that they can buy back and close their positions in advance.

2. Arbitration of the delivery contract

Looking at ETH in the second quarter contract as an example, there is a base of around 2.66%. As the contract is closer to the delivery date, the price is closer to the spot price. Thus, over time, the spread will gradually return to zero.

Therefore, you can borrow the USDT leverage to get a long position with ETH, with a USDT loan interest rate of 1%, traders can sell a second quarter ETH contract at the same time. Then close or wait for delivery (when delivery approaches) and earn income.

Risks and countermeasures

1. If the base increases during this period (floating losses may occur, but as long as they persist until delivery), the final base should be zero. The countermeasure is to consider some floating loss tolerance when opening a position or preparing an emergency fund as a contingency. To facilitate this, the platform also has a corresponding alarm message.

2. During this period, the cost of borrowing increased. In this case, no adequate user countermeasures have been considered at this time. Generally speaking, traditional markets use interest rate futures or interest rate derivatives to hedge risks.

3. Capital rate arbitrage

Currently suitable for users who have the ability to use the API. This will change once arbitration begins, which means most users will be able to use the API.

Positive financing rate arbitrage

For example, SWRV’s current finance rate is relatively high, so you may want to consider shortening the SWRV contract to get a finance rate. However, because the arbitrageurs do not want to bear the losses caused by the rising price of the SWRV, they may consider buying spot SWRV hedges, but the use of funds rate is not particularly high. In the case of low USDT interest rate, traders can borrow leveraged USDT at very low cost, buy leveraged SWRV and short SWRV contracts at the same time to get funding rates.

Negative financing rate arbitrage

For example, the SLP interest rate is 1%, but recently the finance rate has stabilized and is negative. For this type of currency, SLP can be sold with leverage, while the contract is long SLP. As such, fluctuating SLP prices will not bring profit or loss. You can only benefit from the financing rate.

Risks and countermeasures

1. Funding Rate Arbitrage is suitable for users with low processing fees due to open legs and increased transaction volume.

2. It is necessary to control the number of positions on both sides so that it is basically the same. Currently, it is also necessary to use the API for inventory management, which can be used directly after launching the arbitrage strategy.

3. Generally, the rates of small funds in foreign currencies are relatively high, and when the rate of funds is unstable or reversed, although a basic profit can be generated, it is not easy for large funds to ‘enter and exit. The countermeasure consists of controlling the positions and spreading them over a number of currencies suitable for arbitrage.

4. Loan after purchase + Arbitration for contract coverage

For currencies with higher interest rates, you can consider buying and depositing Yubibao directly for profit. However, as the price of small parts can drop and cause losses, you may want to consider selling contracts short to hedge against risk.

Risks and countermeasures

1. The contract capital rate can be negative. If the capital rate loss is greater than the loan income, arbitrage will lose money instead.

2. When the currency price rises rapidly, Yubibao’s internal coins cannot serve as margin, which may result in the contract being liquidated. The countermeasure is to allow Yubibao funds to act as a margin for the development of the platform.

5. Currency extraction

You can consider using BTC and ETH to borrow USDT and exchange it for USDC lockdown mining.

Take MATIC as an example. Many currencies have spot mining, and you may want to consider borrowing the currency directly to invest in lockdown mining.

Closing thoughts

Whether you are new to trading or are a seasoned veteran of the crypto market, the beauty of arbitrage trading is that exchanges like OKEx allow users to automate the process of finding price gaps between. different currencies. Through the use of the native API, OKEx users will be able to monitor price fluctuations in real time and start profiting from arbitrage trading.

Our goal here at Credible Operations, Inc., NMLS number 1681276, referred to as “Credible” below, is to give you the tools and confidence you need to improve your finances. Although we promote the products of our partner lenders, all opinions are ours.

The latest interest rate trends for personal loans from the Credible Marketplace, updated weekly. (iStock)

Borrowers with a good credit search personal loans in the last seven days prequalified for higher rates for 3 year fixed rate loans and lower for 5 year fixed rate loans compared to the previous seven days.

For borrowers with a credit score of 720 or higher who have used the Credible Marketplace to select a lender between December 16 and 22:

  • 3-year fixed-rate loan rates averaged 11.38%, down from 11.23% the previous seven days and up from 11.29% a year ago.
  • 5-year fixed-rate loan rates averaged 14.33%, down from 14.48% the previous seven days and 15.14% a year ago.

Personal loans have become a popular way to consolidate and pay off credit card debt and other loans. They can also be used to cover unforeseen expenses like medical bills, deal with a major purchase or finance home renovation projects.

Personal loan interest rates can be volatile from day to day, with movements of 1% which are not uncommon. However, the increases over the past seven days have been gradual and borrowers can still get a good deal on a personal loan. The current interest rates on personal loans can be particularly attractive to borrowers looking to consolidate their credit card debt. The average interest rate on credit cards is around 17% (based on Federal Reserve data), and those with average or below average credit can have much higher interest rates.

Whether a personal loan is right for you often depends on several factors, including what rate you may qualify for. Comparing several lenders and their rates could help you get the best possible personal loan for your needs.

It is always a good idea to comparison store on sites like Credible to understand the amount you are eligible for and choose the best option for you.

Here are the latest trends in personal loan interest rates from the Credible Market, updated weekly.

Trends in weekly personal loan rates

The chart above shows the average prequalified rates for borrowers with a credit score of 720 or higher who have used the Credible Marketplace to select a lender.

  • 3-year personal loan rates average 11.32%, up from 11.33% in October.
  • 5-year personal loan rates averaged 14.25%, up from 13.85% in October.

Personal loan rates vary widely depending on the credit rating and the length of the loan. If you are curious about what type of personal loan rate you may be entitled to, you can use an online tool like Credible to compare the options of different private lenders. Checking your rates will not affect your credit score.

In November, the average prequalified rate used by borrowers was:

  • 8.92% for borrowers with a credit score of 780 or better choosing a 3-year loan
  • 29.04% for borrowers with a credit score of less than 600 choosing a 5-year loan

Current rates for personal loans by credit score

As the table above shows, a good credit rating can mean a lower interest rate, and rates tend to be higher on longer term, fixed interest rate loans.

How to get a lower interest rate

There are many factors that influence the interest rate a lender might offer you on a personal loan. But there are steps you can take to increase your chances of getting a lower interest rate. Here are some tactics to try.

Increase credit score

Generally, people with a higher credit score are eligible for lower interest rates. Steps that can help you improve your credit score over time include:

  • Pay your bills on time. Payment history is the most important factor in your credit score. Pay all of your bills on time for the amount owed.
  • Check your credit report. Examine your credit report to make sure there are no errors. If you find any errors, dispute them with the credit bureau.
  • Reduce your credit utilization rate. Paying off credit card debt can improve this important credit scoring factor.
  • Avoid opening new credit accounts. Only ask for and open the credit accounts that you really need. Too many inquiries about your credit report in a short period of time could lower your credit score.

Choose a shorter loan term

Personal loan repayment terms can vary from one to several years. Typically, shorter terms come with lower interest rates because the lender’s money is at risk for a shorter period.

If your financial situation allows it, applying for a shorter term could help you get a lower interest rate. Keep in mind that the shorter term doesn’t just benefit the lender: choosing a shorter repayment term will pay less interest over the life of the loan.

Get a co-signer

You may be familiar with the concept of co-signer if you have student loans. If your credit is not sufficient to qualify for the best interest rates on personal loans, find a co-signer with good credit could help you get a lower interest rate.

Remember that if you do not repay the loan, your co-signer will be responsible for repaying it. And co-signing for a loan could also affect their credit score.

Compare rates from different lenders

Before applying for a personal loan, it’s a good idea to shop around and compare the offers of several different lenders to get the lowest rates. Online lenders usually offer the most competitive rates and can disburse your loan faster than a physical establishment.

But don’t worry, comparing rates and terms doesn’t have to be a tedious process.

Liverpool have a stake in Piotr Zielinski https://johnhesch.com/liverpool-have-a-stake-in-piotr-zielinski/ Wed, 22 Dec 2021 15:27:20 +0000 https://johnhesch.com/liverpool-have-a-stake-in-piotr-zielinski/ Liverpool are reportedly interested in Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski but signing him will be difficult due to his long contract with the Serie A side.

Liverpool are reportedly interested in Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski but signing him will be difficult due to his long contract with the Serie A side.

According to a report by Calciomercato, Liverpool hold an interest in Napoli and Poland midfielder Piotr Zielinski, with manager Jurgen Klopp seen as a big admirer of the 27-year-old.

Zielinski has been in Italy since 2011, when he joined Udinese from childhood club Zaglebie Lubin. After initially joining the club’s Under-19 team, he moved up to the first team but only managed 20 senior appearances. After a two-year loan at Empoli between 2014 and 2016, he left Udinese for good to sign for Napoli.

Since signing for the Partenopei, the Poland international has become a key member of the squad, racking up 261 appearances, including 38 goals and 33 assists. A versatile operator, Zielinski adds value to the team through his ability to play in the double pivot, or in the role of attacking midfielder or in large areas, as well as the energy and pace of work that he proposes.

Zielinski has been one of Napoli’s most trusted players this season, producing five goals and assists each, helping them fight for the Serie A title under Luciano Spaletti. And his development over the years has earned him an admirer in Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool.

The report adds that the German tactician has been following Zielinski’s progress since his days at Udinese and is interested in bringing him to Anfield. Liverpool will need to strengthen their midfield as soon as possible. The Reds haven’t signed a replacement after losing Georginio Wijnaldum last summer.

On top of that, James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara are in their 30s and not getting any younger. So maybe it is time for Klopp & co. to start building for the future. It made it possible to forge links with several midfielders, with The young Barcelona Gavi presented as a target, with Borussia Dortmund prodigy Jude Bellingham.

Now Zielinski has also become an option for the Merseyside giants. However, the report adds that signing the midfielder will not be easy due to his contractual situation. The 27-year-old signed a new deal with Napoli last year, committing his future at the club until 2024, with the Serie A bigwigs also retaining the option of extending him for another twelve months.

This means Zielinski has effectively more than three years on his contract, and it would take a large sum of money for Napoli to consider parting ways with him. So Liverpool could decide to look at other options to strengthen their midfield unit.

If your financial situation allows it, applying for a shorter term could help you get a lower interest rate. Keep in mind that the shorter term doesn’t just benefit the lender: choosing a shorter repayment term will pay less interest over the life of the loan.

Get a co-signer

You may be familiar with the concept of co-signer if you have student loans. If your credit isn’t good enough to qualify for the best interest rates on personal loans, finding a co-signer with good credit could help you get a lower interest rate.

Remember that if you do not repay the loan, your co-signer will be responsible for repaying it. And co-signing for a loan could also affect their credit score.
