    Bloomberg: Nord Stream 2 nearly complete





    While Russian officials were unwilling to indicate the date of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline completion, Bloomberg stated September 12 to be the actual deadline.

    Bloomberg scrutinized the data from the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency and concluded Nord Stream 2 is likely to be completed by September 12. Currently, Fortuna, the crane vessel, is laying the pipeline in the Danish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). It will continue its work in German waters. The pace of construction suggests that the remaining 13-14 km section will be completed by September 12.

    The Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration as well as Radio Navigational Centre Emden confirmed the information in their announcements. The Nord Stream 2 AG has not made any official comments.

    Recently, President Vladimir Putin said the Nord Stream 2 pipeline was close to completion. At that moment, only 15 km of the pipeline was left to finish. The President also added that Moscow was ready to send gas via Ukraine even after 2024. However, Russia needs to be informed on the volume of gas exports first.

    China to ban US IPOs for data-rich tech firms





    According to The Wall Street Journal, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) plans to propose a number of rules that would ban local major tech companies from going public overseas, particularly in the United States. This applies primarily to firms that work with large amounts of sensitive consumer data.

    The new regulations are aimed at protecting the personal data of Chinese citizens. They target companies seeking foreign initial public offerings via their divisions incorporated outside the country, including such tech giants as Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, Didi Global Inc ADR, and Tencent Holdings Ltd. These corporations bypass restrictions through the so-called variable interest entity (VIE). This structure is used to raise capital from foreign investors and list offshore.

    Over the past two years, the VIE structure has been pretty popular among many Chinese companies. It helped them receive access to foreign capital by registering offshore and going public on exchanges in the United States and Hong Kong. With the help of VIEs, international investors can also take stakes in offshore units of China's firms. Currently, private Chinese companies under the VIE structure do not need to seek approval from the CSRC for US listings. However, under the new rules, the countrys regulatory bodies are going to establish a mechanism requiring companies to obtain formal approval for overseas IPOs. Thus, the CSRC intends to implement them in the fourth quarter of 2021 and therefore have asked a number of companies to hold off listing abroad.

    This would help Beijing exercise more control over the whole corporate structure, Internet services, as well as telecommunications and education enterprises. According to Chinese officials, it is necessary for national security purposes. The plan to step up supervision of local companies listed overseas came after the countrys dominant taxi-hailing firm Didi made its Wall Street debut despite the Chinese regulators recommendations.

    Notably, in order to obtain public company status, large tech corporations are required to get official permission from an inter-ministerial committee. It includes CSRC members, the Cyberspace Administration of China, and some ministries. This department is planned to be created in the coming months.

    The Cyberspace Administration of China stressed that any company with data for more than 1 million users must undergo a security review before listing its shares overseas. Likewise, the major cause that had prompted the country's Internet watchdog to impose tighter restrictions was the Didi incident. The position of CSRC officials is not in line with that of the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The latter has increased control over Chinese companies conducting IPOs in the United States.

    Amid growing tensions between Washington and Beijing, many Chinese companies such as tech giant Baidu Inc appear to be returning home. In late August, the leading search engine operator launched its Hong Kong secondary listing, analysts said.

    Pfizer becomes first vaccine to receive full FDA approval





    Nowadays, the economic recovery of any country depends on successful vaccination. The world's largest economy needs it as much as the rest. That is why the news that Pfizer's vaccine has received full approval from the US Food and Drug Administration cannot but please.

    FDA experts have announced that the coronavirus vaccine developed by pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech is now fully licensed. This license based on numerous clinical trials affirms its efficacy and safety. It is the first vaccine to receive full approval from the countrys drug regulatory authority. Following this important announcement, the US stock market showed strong performance.

    The FDAs decision to grant full approval to Pfizer-BioNTechs two-dose Covid-19 vaccine immediately pushed equities higher. Thus, the Dow Jones Industrial Average surged by 300 points, while the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ Composite hit fresh all-time highs. Investors appeared to express confidence that this move could dramatically increase vaccination rates and become an inflection point for the global economic recovery.

    To the extent that the general public becomes more comfortable living with the virus, the economy is likely to continue on its upward trajectory, Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer for Independent Advisor Alliance, noted. In addition, higher vaccination rates will allow consumer-dependent industries such as the leisure and hospitality sector to recover faster.

    JPMorgan warns about crypto market overheating



    The current situation in the crypto market creates grounds for disappointing forecasts. JPMorgans analysts were the first who warned that the market was overbought. The rally has really dragged on and the cryptocurrencies explosive growth is supported by nothing. All above gives a real cause for concern. Investment bank JPMorgan is sending notifications to its clients warning them that the cryptocurrency market looks overheated after significant asset growth in August. The clients are advised to prepare for a sharp and sustained decline.

    The bank noted that as for the beginning of September altcoins represented about 33% of the cryptocurrency market surging from its 22% reading in early August. However, the recent soar in altcoins share of the cryptocurrency market does not outperform its surge to 37.6% in May from 13% in January this year.

    The share of altcoins looks rather elevated by historical standards and in our opinion, it is more likely to be a reflection of froth and retail investor mania rather than a reflection of a structural uptrend, JPMorgan concluded.

    The reading hit its high of 55% in January 2018, when bitcoin declined after reaching the local high at $20,000 in December 2017. By the end of 2018, bitcoins price fell by 84%, or $3,200.

    OECD economic output rises in second quarter





    Countries are no longer justifying economic stagnation by the coronavirus, and their authorities are encouraging faster economic growth. Such an approach yields considerable results. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) believes that the economic recovery in industrialized countries is running rather smoothly. According to the organization, the absolute leader is the United States where GDP is already 0.8% higher than the pre-crisis level. In general, the pace of growth has been varying in different countries after the pandemic crisis. For example, GDP in the eurozone remains 3% down from its pre-pandemic level, while in the EU it is 2.6% below where it was before the coronavirus. In the second quarter of this year, it was 2% and 1.9% respectively, although there was a slight decline in the first quarter. Excluding the US data, the highest growth was recorded in the UK (4.8%) as well as in Italy (2.7%). In Germany, GDP grew by 1.6% compared with a contraction of 2% in the previous quarter. In France, gross domestic product rose by 0.9%, while Japan's economy expanded by 0.3%. From April to June this year, the average OECD growth rate was 1.6%. "When comparing economic activity in the second quarter of 2021 with pre-pandemic levels of the fourth quarter of 2019, GDP still lags behind for the OECD area as a whole by 0.7%," the representative of the organization said.

    Global arms industry to reduce carbon footprint





    According to analysts at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the global defense industry is facing mounting pressure to decarbonize. Militaries use a huge amount of energy. This is why they need to set emission reduction targets.

    "Compared with most other sectors, the global defense industry remains at an early stage of its journey to reduce greenhouse gas emissions," BCG noted. However, in the near future, the military sector will have to go green and embrace the new reality of environmental sustainability.

    "The global defense industrys contribution to worldwide CO2 emissions could soar from 2% today to 25% by 2050- unless contractors work more aggressively to reduce their carbon footprints," the agency said. Defense companies that refuse to implement environmental strategies in their work will face pressure from most investors. Currently, climate issues are of high priority to many large market players, especially when it comes to picking up an investment strategy.

    Nowadays, many organizations that manage assets worth $43 trillion are expected to reach zero emissions by 2050. This requirement also applies to the defense industry. Contractors are sure to take into account the environmental awareness of the defense companies before investing money. So, the military sector is up for the challenge. "Most leading defense companies we studied have begun efforts to cut what are known as Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions- those related to their operations and energy usage, respectively," market strategists at BCG added. Therefore, those defense companies that will transform into greener businesses will attract more investors in the future.

    Today, climate change is one of the most acute topics for governments around the globe. Many governments are taking appropriate measures aimed at mitigating climate change. Lloyd Austin, the US Secretary of Defense, called the climate crisis an existential threat. "We face all kinds of threats in our line of work, but few of them truly deserve to be called existential." His opinion is shared across the pond. The UK military sector also stressed the importance of going green. Apart from that, the UK Ministry of Defence and the US Department of Defense have already declared that they are ready to help their nations achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

    BCG believes that the different companies in the military industry need to find an effective way to become carbon neutral. "In aerospace, the path to net zero will focus on alterations in engines and fuels. Competition among both defense and civilian companies is intense. Militaries are expected to follow the civilian sector by introducing more EVs and hybrids," BCG said.

    George Soros calls Blackrocks initiative "tragic mistake''



    Legendary American billionaire George Soros considers BlackRocks initiative in China a "tragic mistake''. The economist believes that the company poses a risk for its clients, offering them to invest in Chinese assets.

    The situation with BlackRock is like trapping or hostage-taking. On the one hand, Chinese President Xi Jinping has made it easier for foreign investors to participate in domestic markets. On the other hand, his government has tightened its grip on the private sector and clashed with the US over many issues. Consequently, Xi Jinping will be able to influence the United States by manipulating US companies in China.

    "Pouring billions of dollars into China now is a tragic mistake," George Soros wrote. However, huge companies like BlackRock and even Goldman Sachs do not share Soros' view and are actively expanding their participation in the market. They believe that investment opportunities in China outweigh possible risks. However, investing in Chinese assets may damage the national security interests of the US and other democracies. George Soros also has his supporters. Following him, a large investment fund, ARK Invest, refused to buy Chinese shares.

    Notably, China is currently launching a crackdown on its own companies. It is a cause for serious concern. Many investors are afraid of losing money. George Soros called Xi Jinping "the most dangerous enemy of open societies in the world." According to Soros, the US Congress should limit investment in Chinese companies and in this way protect investors.

    El Salvador's bitcoin rollout continues





    El Salvador is stepping up efforts to promote the use of bitcoin. While part of the population is protesting against the adoption of BTC as legal tender, the country's government is actively exploring the potential merits of the world's first cryptocurrency.

    The authorities have gone a step further by installing 50 cryptomats to transfer money to El Salvador without commissions. Approximately 70% of the country's population regularly uses cross-border transfers and payments. Last year, Salvadorans sent home almost $6 billion from abroad. Earlier, such major payment systems as Western Union and MoneyGram earned about $400 million a year in commissions. Overall, El Salvador loses 1.5% of GDP due to remittance fees. The ability to use bitcoin and cryptocurrency ATMs is projected to solve this problem.

    El Salvador's President Nayib Bukele is confident that adopting the digital currency as legal tender would make it easier for citizens of the country living abroad to send money back home. Bitcoin could save the country from $170 million to $400 million a year in transaction fees on funds sent from abroad. We must break the paradigms of the past," President Bukele tweeted. "El Salvador has the right to advance towards the first world," he added.

    Bitcoin is now an official currency of El Salvador alongside the US dollar. The corresponding law was passed by Congress in early June. According to Bukele, this measure "will generate jobs and help provide financial inclusion to thousands outside the formal economy."

    EU set to invest billions in digital technologies



    The news that the EU has suddenly changed its stance on cryptocurrencies came as a surprise to investors. The fact is, the European Union is going to invest about a fifth of the regions 750 billion pandemic recovery fund in digital technologies. EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced these plans when addressing the European Parliament. According to her statement, the EU officials are planning to launch a multibillion-euro project with a focus on blockchain (distributed ledger for recording crypto transactions), data infrastructure, and high-performance computing. Yet, the European Commission did not reveal how much it would spend on each technology area. The EU Commission President noted that this initiative was part of a large-scale plan to push the bloc towards developing advanced technologies and manufacturing semiconductors. This sector may be even more crucial for the region than blockchain since a global shortage of semiconductors amid the coronavirus pandemic has affected several industries worldwide and forced carmakers to slow production. The EU Commission also intends to direct funding in such areas as 5G communication, digital innovation, and secure quantum communication (communication network that uses the laws of quantum mechanics to protect transmitted data). This is a good clue for investors about promising sectors to watch. What is more, the EU is planning to support the development of people's digital skills amid a rapid technology advancement.

    Taliban bans US dollars in Afghanistan





    After the Taliban seized power over Afghanistan, they banned the US dollar across the country along with other foreign currencies. Notably, a new piece of legislation imposes restrictions only for banknotes use.

    "The Islamic Emirate instructs all citizens, shopkeepers, traders, businessmen and the general public to henceforth conduct all transactions in Afghanis (the local currency) and strictly refrain from using foreign currency," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statement posted on Twitter. According to Mujahid, anyone violating this law will face legal action.

    While the Taliban government is persecuting the Afghans for using the US currency, they are trying to accumulate USD as much as possible. Earlier in August, they prohibited the export of US dollars from the country. The currency was in serious deficit after the US forces left the region. The US had stopped cash imports in Afghanistan the day before the capital of the country surrendered amid fears that the funds would be received by the new government. Washington froze about $9 billion of Afghanistan central banks assets including $1.3 billion in gold deposited at the New York Fed. The new Afghan government might have obtained only a little part of government funds in Kabul estimated at $360 million in cash and 2 tons of gold if the assets were not looted by the fleeing authorities.
