    Daily Shot: Chinese stocks tumble
    Yesterday stocks in Shanghai finally fell after a larger long upswing. Crude oil supply is still to large for prices to increase.

    'Hands up' Fifa! The sheriff's in town

    The finance world and football don't often collide but perhaps they should — after all, this is a multi-billion dollar business and no single event can quite live up to the World Cup, including the Olympics. So when Swiss police arrested seven officials Wednesday for extradition to the US as part of an investigation that stretches back to the controversial decisions to grant Russia and Qatar the next world cups in 2018 and 2022 respectively, the implications are enormous.
