Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I view protectionism as the refusal to buy another country's products (or placing restrictions on their purchase), the reason typically being to protect domestic assets (although it can be punitive as well).  I don't see why this shouldn't apply to financial instruments as well as goods and raw materials.
