Thx. I have given up trading in foreign COTs a while ago. The biggest problem is that owning uncored COTs gives you a 15% penalty when trading in foreign COTs. Venice gets also embargoed by other Merchant Republics, including Lübeck, who owns the richest COT in the game. Free trade is great for countries like Holland, Mecklemburg and Navarra, but otherwise...Smart move going to mercantilism, being so large seems to make everyone envy you and that decreases your trade chances significantly even with low infamy. At least that is my experience, and it is kinda annoying.
