BGG (Dinar Guru) –   [Anyone have any idea why the CBI hasn’t updated their exchange rates on the web site since the 4th? Seems kinda odd.]  …no one has any idea. Longest stretch in the last 5 years they have not updated.
______________________________________________________________

WMAwhite (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Class US site of the Iraqi currency [dinar] at the bottom of the strongest Arab currency arrangement.”  Quote:  “According to the order published on [howmuch.net] the US, the GCC currencies were among the strongest Arab currencies, are bottom, including Iraq…”    …the Iraqi currency [dinar] at the bottom of the strongest Arab currency arrangement.   Folks,…ask yourself why does this particular short article appear in an on-line business publication that out of all of what is happening in the ME it points out this?

BGG (Dinar Guru) –    …When there is a value change – we will know. The value of the Dinar was spoken to directly by the Gov of the CBI several times in the few days. Going down is not what he said.  …we are really close… they are handling financial, economic and currency reform items every day. The news about the Commercial Agencies Law being voted on shortly is HUGE. Big companies won’t go to Iraq if they have to hand their business over to an Iraqi.  We should be very encouraged.  The factual info is plenty encouraging.
______________________________________________________________

Loop (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “International Monetary showing satisfaction of Iraq’s efforts to meet the credit requirements of the program”   Quote: “…satisfaction with the efforts made by the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of Iraq and other ministries in the area to meet the requirements of the program,” adding “it is going according to timings marked in the program,” according to the statement…it is going according to timings marked in the program…The IMF is satisfied with the progress of the SBA!  BOOM.
______________________________________________________________

Loop (Dinar Guru) –    Article:  “Finance issued government bonds secured one billion dollars”   Quote:  “foreign banks praised the interest rate achieved by the Ministry of Finance for these bonds compared to similar cases to other countries, the issue is guaranteed by the United States government bonds.”   The EU BONDS ARE READY (ISSUED) AND THE FORIEGN BANK PRAISED THE INTEREST RATE ACHIEVED!  So what’s changed from last year? As evidenced by the shear number of MoUs and other agreements Iraq has made with countless countries. THE WORLD LIKES THE ACTIONS THE IRAQ HAS TAKEN TO CORRECT THEIR ECONOMIC COURSE AND THEY ARE SEEING THE POTENTIAL TO MAKE LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY. AND THE SPEED AT WHICH THESE BONDS CAME OUT IS AMAZING!

The advance granted to employees who have a smart card receives their monthly salary


Baghdad/SNG –
Rafidain Bank, said Saturday that his predecessor granted 10 million dinars for State officials to have smart card activated receives her monthly salary.

The Bank’s information Office said in a statement, a copy of SNG received “a strategic plan on the Bank granted 10 million advance that an employee must have a smart card activated through resettlement of salaries in private savings accounts and activate the electronic tax receipt and pay her monthly salary, in addition to the payment of the insured who has previous advance advances.”…

1Bobby ~  These are the cards that will reduce the note count and add liquidity to the banks. Remember the 3 Ministries that agreed to have ALL employees salaries issued thru this card? Also the Rubber Industry agreed to the same with their employees (19,000 or so) This “10 million” advance was aimed at the :shortcomings” of the salaries due to the economic crisis.

Employees that sign up, thru the smart card, will be eligible for these advances. Just inner workings that have been going on for awhile now. They had to get the Ministries approval and get their ducks in a row before proceeding with this program. Bottom line is…..reducing note count, adding liquidity to the banks. Hope all that made sense. I’m sure others can add to it.

______________________________________________________________

Loop (Dinar Guru) –    Article  “Iraq Stock Exchange recorded an increase the value and number of shares during the past week”   Quote:  “There is a rise in the number of shares traded last week by (129.85%) compared to per week, which was accepted, while there was a rise in the total value of shares traded last week by (154.78%) compared to per week, which was accepted.”  The ISX had a good week last week.   Week over Week increase in trade volume by 129.85%…Week over week increase in share value 154.78%. WOW.   Wonder what sparked the sudden activity?
______________________________________________________________

Loop (Dinar Guru) –    ‘’Rafidain Bank confirms the grant in the 10 million dinars for employees to Card Holders”     Rafidian is working overtime on strategies to get the citizens to start using the banking system and feel safe doing so.
______________________________________________________________

BGG (Dinar Guru) –     Kuwaiti Dinar is still considered a thinly traded “exotic”…Iraq is almost certain to land in this category… no biggie – it’s alot like you’re all sitting on a penny stock about to get listed on the big board – no matter where it goes, it’s gonna’ be good.
______________________________________________________________

______________________________________________________________

BGG (Dinar Guru) –   […do you find it odd we haven’t seen any statements from the World Economic Conference by Iraqi officials?]  I do – I find a lot of things VERY strange lately…so much progress – much like the IBAN being accepted and utilized and we heard about it a week later… anyone notice the CBI has updated their Currency Buy/Sell listing on their website since 1/4??  …very odd (to say the least)…we may have to be digging to find the exact time of any value change – we use to say “just check the CBI”.  That’s out the window…   …it’s gonna’ happen overnite – we will (hopefully) know quickly, but we might have to dig and verify.  IMHO.   [Is there any chance that we have already had a value change, but has not been posted on the CBI?]   anything is possible – but we have such broad contacts, I just doubt it has.  [If we dont look at the CBI for the rate change, where will we find that information?]   We’re gonna’ be looking at everything in context… probably some kind of “inter-bank memo” since they in the process of “re-engaging” right now.  [can they have a rate and not showing it? How are they doing business other wise?]  …the “not showing” part is not a long term thing – we’ll know pretty soon. No matter what.
______________________________________________________________

Breitling (Dinar Guru) –It’s not what they’re saying it’s what they’re doing is what you need to understand the most…the CBI said they’re going to raise the value of their currency.  The Ministry of Planning, parliament say the value is going to go up.  I don’t need them to say anything if I’m watching their maneuvering and I understand how they’re going to compete.  Then I understand how they’re going to add value to their currency.  I really don’t have to hear anybody “say” anything.  I just watch what they do.  It’s not what they say it’s what they do that’s most important and the CBI is maneuvering in our favor if you’re investing in Iraq.  So don’t get too crazy on what everybody says…just watch what the CBI does.  Watch what the ministry of Planning is doing and how they’re doing it.
______________________________________________________________

Loopster (Dinar Guru) –   [Just curious if there is a purpose for why the CBI would put the banks through the process of selling the dollar on a large scale rather than change the value of the dinar first and negate the need for selling the dollar…any thoughts on that?]  As Alak has said the selling of the dollars will continue at present. It is the way that their economy is functioning and to just stop it would collapse the economy. When the time is right to stop selling the dollars they will do so. It is a process and as anyone who is looking can see they implementing new measures everyday to to give themselves the greatest chance of success when they decide to do away with the imposed rate.

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   …I’m very upbeat about the Dinar right now.  More so than I have been in quite some time! We have Budget activity that is more timely than at any point in recent history.  We have major talks of buttoning up major aspects of the Infrastructure, which is key to this all coming together. We have open spots in Parliament that are slated for completion as soon as next week And for the biggest, perhaps most exciting “clue” of the decade…  Article:  “Oil announces the completion of a draft oil and gas law and send it to the Secretariat of the Council of Ministers”   We’ve got a few days or weeks, but things are MOVING in the right direction! This is a PERFECT time to make sure you’ve got your ducks in a row…and maybe even a “prep list” of things to be sure you have and ready to pack at a moment’s notice!  We are at a point where I feel a sense of urgency to get every last detail checked and fine  tuned…BOY am I getting just a tad excited! 
______________________________________________________________

Breitling (Dinar Guru) – With the Iraqi dinar I stand by the numbers.  The numbers say they’ve reduced the note count.  They said they are going to add value to their currency.  They have all the opportunity in the world to add value to their currency.  They are not a 3rd world country like people think they are.  They were in trouble and are in trouble and in financial chaos because of geopolitics.  Can they get out of it?  Sure.  I personally think they can.  I think they will.  Can they get their currency back to the original value before Saddam Hussein started screwing with it?  I think they can.  That’s why I invested in it.  That’s why I speculated and say I think they can do it and gamble on this.  [Post 2 of 2]
______________________________________________________________

Breitling (Dinar Guru) – The currency reset?  what the hell is that?  It doesn’t even exist and people are buying dinar because of it?  If you’re going to get into an investment get in for the right reasons.  With that said…I back every single thing I say, every number that I watch…It comes from the CBI, the Ministry of Planning, the Ministry of Finance and Parliament.  You can’t get around it.  They are the ones who are saying they are going to add value to the currency…not me.  I’m just following it.  It’s not like one day I just woke up and said I should go out and buy dinar…Iraq has the ability to add value to their currency and they have the ability to do exactly what they said they are going to do…get their currency to a buck.  [Post 1 of 2]

Loopster (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “The central bank issued new instructions to regulate the process of selling the dollar”   Quote:  “…the instruction stresses the need to achieve the main objective of the Central Bank, a knowledge of the ultimate beneficiary and the preservation of hard currency for Iraq through the optimal use in order to serve the national economy and sustainable development…”    “a knowledge of the ultimate beneficiary”  The IBANs make this very easy to track.  The actions that are happening in the bank sector right now are a huge indicator of where Iraq is headed and that should make everyone in this room very very excited.

tman23 (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Central bank: deletion of zeros from the currency deferred for the time being”   Deferred for the time beingWhen I read this… my first thought was… THEY ARE READY TO GO… To say deferred for the time being is NOT “Iraqi LINGO”….If he had a teleprompter I would say the UST was on the other end typing…I expect to see BIG NEWS at anytime and not thinking in terms of weeks.

And its working.

Mike (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Iraq opens the door to possibilities deletion of zeros from the local currency”  Quote:  “…the Iraqi Central Bank did not specify a date for the deletion of zeros from the currency dinar,” noting that “subject to availability of appropriate conditions, including the general stability in the country.”   …the CBI is working towards adding value to the dinar…the CBI didn’t specify a date, they’re still waiting on appropriate conditions and they want to make sure all their T’s are crossed and their I’s are dotted before they start. I think it’s pretty safe to say…that Iraq needs to do some things before the dinar will gain in value:  1) Get the MCP below 2%   2) Remove Exchange Restrictions   3) Pass the long overdue legislation related to the the banking and economy verticals. 4) Create the open market that’s necessary to increase demand.
______________________________________________________________

WMAwhite (Dinar Guru) –   […wouldn’t reducing the note count to the point of a liquidity crisis force a rise in the value based on supply and demand once the Dinar is free to go up in value?]  The note count has an effect in country, but only the CBI sets the value outside the country.
______________________________________________________________

Mike (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Iraqi dinar is not in danger and delete the zeros Postponed”  Quote:  “revealing that the deletion of zeros from the currency, deferred for the time being.”  The loose translation for defer is “to put off (an action or event) to a later time; postpone.” And then he states:  “the Iraqi Central Bank did not specify a date for the deletion of zeros from the currency dinar,” noting that “subject to availability of appropriate conditions, including the general stability in the country. He’s telling us they don’t have a date, they’re just waiting for the right conditions to move forward. In order for a currency to have value it needs several things like political stability, free from conflict and a economy that produces and exports products to create demand for the currency…once they raise the value the prices will change, 10,000 dinars today will buy you five packs of smokes, 10,000 dinars after it rises to 1-1 will buy you a Toyota pickup.

______________________________________________________________

WMAwhite (Dinar Guru) –  A change in the prices of goods; the prices are what determine the size of the notes. Lower the prices, remove the large notes. What will change the prices of the goods/ marketplace? A dramatic increase in the value of the currency that is importing the goods.  General stability, security = FINANCIAL security, financial stability, not military security. Alak is a bank manger, not a military…  Alak is saying today the market conditions are not correct for removing the large notes…and he does not have a date for that…he will not have an idea when until he raises the value and we know he is preparing to do that.  Two different things…One is removing them physically to lower the note count….the second is removing them naturally because the prices have lowered due to a value change.  The prices in the market place need to lower in order for the citizens to use smaller notes, thus no need for the larger notes.   [post 2 of 2]
______________________________________________________________

WMAwhite (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “The Central Bank Governor for “tomorrow”: Iraqi dinar is not in danger and delete deferred zeros”  Folks…each of us need to pay attention to exactly what is said. Alak was referring to the large notes, the removal of the large notes from the currency. That is NOT the same as increasing the value of the currency. They are two very different events.   …this is pertaining to the removal of the three zero notes from the marketplace/from the currency;  “the Iraqi Central Bank did not specify a date for the “…deletion of zeros from the currency dinar,”  This Statement is not about the change in the value of currency. He is saying that the prices in the marketplace are not appropriate yet in order to remove the currency.  So, what will change the marketplace? [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

BGG (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Governor of the Central Bank’s “Tomorrow Press”: Iraqi dinar is not in danger and delete the zeros Postponed”   [AND ALAK’S RESPONSE IS NOT UNTIL IT IS SAFE TO DO SO!…does this mean Mosul?]  probably – (my take)…it really looks like control of Mosul (and liberation) seems to be some kind of criteria (set for them by someone else).    however, there are numerous references to this happening soon.   ...in my book – that doesn’t negate any of the earlier CBI comments about the beginning of 2017 – sounds a bit like they may have had it planned for sometime before now and some calculus has put things off a bit…like Mosul?   AND Alak makes no mention of “how long” it is “postponed” (or what their original intended start date might have been)… a day – a week – a month?? He’s talking to a reporter. Could mean anything.

TMan23 (Dinar Guru) –  Deferred for the time being…… When I read this…… my first thought was…… THEY ARE READY TO GO….. To say deferred for the time being is NOT “Iraqi LINGO”…….

______________________________________________________________

Islandg1211 (Dinar Guru) –  The good news is that the CBI continues to move forward. Last week, Iraq’s banks got their IBAN international bank transfer number codes. That’s great news and really shows that Iraq certainly does plan to get the Dinar international again and off the UN sanction rate.  Reports of more US banks buying and selling Dinar is also good news, testing the system, adding the Dinar, and making it internationally acceptable.  Neither the IBAN codes nor the sale by banks of the Dinar make practical sense without the RV.
______________________________________________________________

BGG (Dinar Guru) –  I really wish people would quit imagining the worst… nothing in here [The Alak interview] dissuades me of their ultimate intent… in fact, if you look at this, it really looks like they had imagined this to be DONE ALREADY. We are IN THE END GAME. This “deferred for the time being…” lingo is very gentle and a VERY NEW version of what they have been saying. They had POSTPONED indefinitely this project back in late 2012 (or so)… how is that different from right now??

Ultimately – this is a much different, in a MUCH DIFFERENT CLIMATE – so, while the BOO BIRDS will say “same ole – same ole” – it’s NOT EVEN CLOSE. VASTLY DIFFERENT.
______________________________________________________________

I can honestly say, the last few days… especially since this Alak interview supposedly delaying the RV, is the DUMBEST STRETCH OF GURU COMMENTARY in recent memory. These characters doing all the talking are damaging the collective IQ of the rest of us!! Sheesh!!

Quit listening to IDIOTS and just read what Iraq is saying… for what it is. We will help by bringing this info and adding some thoughts as we are able.

Thanks

My Ladies (Dinar Guru) –   …WHAT IS IBAN?  IBAN IS AN INTERNATIONAL BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER. THAT IS ALL IT IS AND NOT EVERY COUNTRY THAT DOES BUSINESS INTERNATIONALLY IS REQUIRED TO HAVE ONE.  FOR INSTANCE THE USA DOES NOT REQUIRE ONE BUT SOME COUNTRIES DO IN ADDITION TO A SWIFT OR BIC NUMBER.  NOW YOU CAN ADD IRAQ TO THIS LIST, BUT STILL THIS HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH CURRENCY…MONEY WILL NOT BE FLOWING INTO IRAQ ON THE IBAN. IT IS NOT “THE” IBAN AND IT IS NOT A MEANS OF CARRYING MONEY, IT IS SIMPLY JUST ANOTHER ACCOUNTING SYSTEM AND IT IS NOT A PRECURSOR TO ANY SO CALLED “RV”…

BGG ~ This person is downing this investment and busy “cashing in” on what little fame they have garnered HYPING some RIDICULOUS “digital crypto-currency”… NASTY.

P.S. Thanks for the juvenile lesson on IBAN except the US doesn’t use one because it’s primarily a European/M.E. thing… we use SWIFT Codes and ABA/Chips routing numbers to send and track money. Most of the rest of the world is happy to accommodate us (we are the U.S. – right?). Though it doesn’t directly imply a change in the value of their currency – IT DOES IMPLY A “re-engagement” with the economies nearest them and then the rest of the world. This is all part of the program we are looking for… BOOM!!

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –  That being said, I think the IMF stated just a week or so ago that the CBI only completed 3 of 9 benchmarks during 2016 as required as part of the SBA.  So like usual, the CBI is behind schedule again. The good news is they are making progress, and they are implementing the requirements. I would expect that we are at least 3-6 months behind schedule at this point, but the CBI is not going to announce when they are going to get off the peg and float. And knowledge of moving from Article XIV to VIII will not be announced in advanced. We need to just watch the progress, let this come to us.  It will happen..because there can be no market economy without it.   [post 2 of 2]

Governor of the Central Bank’s “Tomorrow Press”: Iraqi dinar is not in danger and delete the zeros Postponed

BAGHDAD / Tomorrow Press – The Central Bank, said on Sunday that there is full control of the Iraqi dinar, revealing that the deletion of zeros from the currency, deferred for the time being.

The governor of the bank, on the Keywords, for “tomorrow’s Press,” that “the rumors about the Iraqi dinar at risk and prone to degradation and decline in comparison with other currencies as dollar, is not true,” adding that “Msatralih dinar fully and that in progress.”

He added, “The Bank operates in accordance with the monetary and fiscal policies which are managed accurately and feminization and that the issue of preservation of the Iraqi dinar of the priorities of his interest, but it’s at the heart of his work.”

And on the application of the process of deleting the zeros of the Iraqi currency, Keywords, said that “the Iraqi Central Bank did not specify a date for the”.deletion of zeros from the currency dinar, noting that “subject to availability of appropriate conditions, including the general stability in the country.”

He stressed the central bank governor and the agency, the need to “ensure the success of the process of deleting the zeros requirements before starting out, so the central bank will continue technical preparations in order to be practical fit when deciding deletion.”

SO A REPORTER FROM TOMORROW PRESS ASKS ALAK IF THE DINAR IS IN DANGER AGAINST OTHER CURRENCIES AND HE SAID NOT AT ALL WE ARE CONSTANTLY MONITORING IT, HAVE PROCESSES IN PLACE AND HAVE EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL.

THEN THE REPORTING ASKS HIM WHEN THE DELETION OF THE ZEROS PROJECT WILL START AND ALAK’S RESPONSE IS NOT UNTIL IT IS SAFE TO DO SO!

NO EARTH SHATTERING INFORMATION HERE. THIS IS WHAT WE’VE TALKED ABOUT COUNTLESS TIMES ON DU. IT IS A PROCESS THAT WILL ONLY BE IMPLEMENTED WHEN ALL OF THE METRICS THEY ARE LOOKING FOR ARE MET. THIS WILL GIVE THEM THE GREATEST POSSIBILITY OF SUCCESS. TO DO IT ANY OTHER WAY WOULD BE CRAZY… – LOOPSTER

RCookie, WMAwhite and Hutch   They will be working with the IMF to be prepped for that because there is a monetary reform process and an economic reform process…the revaluation of their currency is part of the monetary reform…this will kick start the economic reform…that is the trigger mechanism, IOO.  But they have other things they have to do for the economic reform to be successful…because if you don’t have a sound economic environment this level of monetary reform is going to be difficult to support the valuation.  Iraq has taken the position that they want their monetary reform to be successful and therefore their economic reform has to be successful as well.   [post 2 of 2]
______________________________________________________________

RCookie, WMAwhite and Hutch   The only reason they have the imposed rate on their currency is not sanctions put on by the IMF…it is sanctions put on them by the UN under Chapter 7.   The IMF is helping them get back on their feet as they transition into a market driven economy along with the rest of the world and that is the process that we have been watching.  Once the UN removes Chapter 7 that means they also remove the sanctions that were imposed from Chapter 7 and that releases Iraq to reinstate/revalue their currency…   [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

Also, is Iraq in another holding pattern now?  I haven’t heard much coming from the Parliament lately.]  I don’t actually look for “signs” or “tip offs”, I pay more attention to patterns and “big picture”. But regarding Parliament, I disagree  there – I’m seeing a lot of good patterns continuing and also new ones emerging.

Why are they borrowing the money, then? Because that’s what smart money does.

Arthur (Dinar Guru) –  Two days ago we saw a CBI announcement calling for  the “conversion” of what they call “uncles” which we have translated to mean the large notes held in Iraq and perhaps even globally. We then saw them transport a large amount of money to their largest bank which they say ended their over 2 year long severe liquidity crisis and IMO will facilitate this massive conversion from the aforementioned “uncles” to their lower denominations thus beginning the delete zero project on schedule in “early 2017”.   [post 2 of 2]

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –  “Central Bank supports the international mathematical figure the “IBAN” starting from 2 January 2017”  Spectacular news!  …its important for the transfer of funds to and from Iraq.  A step closer.
______________________________________________________________

BGG (Dinar Guru) –   …article about the greatly tightened border scrutiny of borders and ports with respect to currency moving out of their borders…I think a lot of people missed that one about the borders last week…it was much bigger than the ‘airplay’ it got...shows a serious ‘sensitivity’ to currency moving outside the borders in an uncontrolled manner. Which begs the question – why?  In conrast – the US doesn’t worry too much about currency moving around… why is Iraq’s ‘currency sensitivity’ so heightened right now?  the answer is easy – they’ve already told us.
______________________________________________________________

Enorrste (Dinar Guru) –  “Central Bank supports the international mathematical figure the “IBAN” starting from 2 January 2017”   Here is what IBAN means:  “The International Bank Account Number (IBAN) is an internationally agreed system of identifying bank accounts across national borders to facilitate the communication and processing of cross border transactions with a reduced risk of transcription errors.”  Therefore, this is a major step in prepaing to go international with the dinar.  By accepting the IBAN system they are saying that the rest of the world can access Iraqi bank account information if necessary.  This is a huge opening and will prepare the way for entry into Article VIII and international trading of the dinar, in my view.
______________________________________________________________

BGG (Dinar Guru) –  Article:  “Central Bank announces the adoption of the international mathematical number (IBAN) makes all the conversions”  That is big news… Their IBAN ‘unification’ is a very big move…looks like we could see the start of international “re-integration” soon.
______________________________________________________________

rcookie (Dinar Guru) –  GOT A WHOPPER FOR YA.   Article:  “Central Bank announces the adoption of the international mathematical number (IBAN) makes all the conversions”  Quote:  “…introducing the international bank account number (IBAN) system in Iraq.”   THIS IS BIG NEWS BECAUSE IBAN HAS BEEN PART OF THEIR WORKING BANKING SUPERVISION FOR MANY LOI’S FROM THE IMF…AND TODAY… BOULYAAAH!  ABSOLUTELY … HUGE!
______________________________________________________________

BGG (Dinar Guru) –   […”re-integration.” Is that the same as revalue…are we still believing that they will revalue around .90 equal to 1 dinar to begin with?]   That’s not exactly the same…”re-integration” is more like a term the international community is using to describe this move to “re-engage” Iraq with the rest of the world economically. It is likely sometime around the same time they will start the project to “Remove the 3 Zero notes” as they have outlined over and over…the beginning stages of this “project” will likely include some change in the value of the Dinar.  This is the stage most here are after – but there is much more to follow as well. It get more and more exciting by the day.

tlm724 (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Central Iraq” supports the currency delete the “zeros” dinar”  …the CBI has given us ample information yearly about the project. First they say we have a green light and then they recant saying “we aren’t quite ready yet” because it was true, they weren’t ready.  I am excited for 2017 and all the promise it holds. We are fortunate enough to be able to read and study daily and with a little discernment we do get a pretty good picture as to what Iraq is doing. We know they have and are taking the steps outlined by the CBI to get this project launched once and for all. Parliament is supposed to resume their sessions on Jan 10th or there about. We need to see a few laws revised and implemented to insure a smooth transition to a free market economy and more importantly we need to see the economic laws to protect their wealth. You know just as well as I do that the IMF, the World Bank and the US Treasury have their hands in Iraq’s piggy bank and they aren’t going to let Iraq slip with this, there is too much at stake.

BGG (Dinar Guru) – RCookie was talking about…a very interesting article…RCookie’s article spoke to the border crossing thrust to regulate “currency smuggling” – my take?   IMHO – they don’t want “unauthorized” currency transfers OUTSIDE the country… ask yourself why?  [they are getting ready to revalue their currency?]  They have pretty much told us so… in a number of different ways.  …I am suspicious the “outside” number is the one they are most concerned with.  Why would they tell us?  Because they don’t care if you know…they aren’t talking to you and I…AND Shabibi did say – they would tell (educate) their people leading up to this event/start of “the project”…

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   Article:   “Central Iraq” supports the currency delete the “zeros” dinar”   A couple of things… technically, Iraq does not need to be in Article VIII for currency reform. They can do that at anytime.  it is clear that the intent is to float the dinar or gradually raise the dinar over time which will raise the value of the dinar and raise the zeros. The IMF made it very clear (referring to the Ballassa Samuelson Effect) in 2012, and the CBI stated just last year they plan to bring out a 50, 100, 200 early 2017. Both of these statements only make sense under the circumstances I am explaining. LOP’s affect all notes at the same time, would not need 10 years to transition, would counter all statements made a few years ago by Saleh (the dinar will be held around the world for a very long time, etc), etc. etc.

wmawhite (Dinar Guru) –  They have laws that eventually need to be passed. However, none of those laws preclude a change in the value of the currency.  Remember, nearly 21 months ago…March 3, 2015 the CBI announced that they had received the “green light” to move forward with the “Delete The Zeros Project.”  nothing about needing any laws passed…this event is in process…it is not a single event.  Instead, it has many parts to it and the value change is only one part of the project that is needed up front.

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   I have a good feeling about 2017, and it’s not because of a “feeling”… it’s a direct result of having watched this thing like a hawk for a few long years and having compiled a “big picture” of where we are and where we need to go. Much of 2016 was hampered by ISIS. That’s just a fact. There was no way Iraq could have successfully revalued their currency to a significant number with so many problems with ISIS. …two articles this morning…about Iraq’s resumed push into Mosul…both are positive about Iraq’s current success and continued success. This WILL happen! My key focus towards the 2nd half of 2016 was HCL, and it continues to be HCL.   Late December, Parliament set a specific date to start the “new” legislations for the year. That date was January 2, 2017, as in 2 days ago. Can anyone guess what legislation I’m excited to see?  You bet!  some of what Parliament covered on their first 2017 session…it’s almost glaringly obvious that this will affect the HCL

Ask yourself why would a worthless note need to be pulled.  Because of the new 50 that they were planning on release IMO.  THen they were white listed.  There are so many bread crumbs that all point to the same thing.  Here is one of Alak’s more recent quotes:   He noted that the solution in Iraq lies in dollar demand reduction through structural correction of the Iraqi economy, and not through refraining from selling the dollar.  HUGE HUGE HUGE  [and how do they accomplish that?]  THe deletion of those pesky zeors is how.   [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

Central Bank of Iraq supports the currency “delete the zeros” (from) the Dinar

Revealed the Keywords Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq to delete the zeros of the Iraqi currency, he began to develop the first steps of the support of the Iraqi dinar project.

Keywords and said in a statement, said that the aim of the deletion of three zeros is to support the Iraqi dinar, and make it a competitor to foreign currencies, pointing out that this strategic project will serve the country ‘s economy, as the dinar will be included in the global basket of currencies in the vital exchanges.

He added that the bank is working on mechanisms for the implementation of the project, it is expected to start at the beginning of 2017. He pointed out that the introduction of the new currency does not mean the destruction of ancient coins, but will continue to trade for about 10 years.

BGG (Dinar Guru) –   [what are you most excited about lately?]  All of it. Hard to pin my interest on any one thing…and maybe that is the exciting part – it isn’t just one thing.  It’s the forward velocity on virtually all fronts [top five?]   5) IMHO there is more to this comment by Abadi over Mosul taking 3 more months the other day… I really doubt that proves to be accurate… translation? Political posturing? Some kind of intentinal mislead? IDK – but it does seem at odds with most of his previous commentary.  4) The recovery of stolen monies by the GOI – big news. They are looking to put an end to the culture of corruption.   3) The passage of the J&A Law – HUGE piece…2) General forward velocity of all the Economic and Financial reforms going on right now – they are really building an economy – FAST.  1) Obviously – the statements by the current Gov of the CBI concerning their “beginning of 2017” timeline – HUGE!

HOW DID THEY CATCH THIS?… WITH THE ELECTRONIC CLEARING SYSTEM THAT WE HAVE BEEN HEARING ABOUT…MORE PROOF OF ACTION ON THE BANKING REFORM FRONT…

Frank26 (Dinar Guru) – Like a spider leg slowly probing what’s in front of it before taking it to the mouth …The Dow and Oil Prices cautiously approach levels of interest … A Flag by A (Abadi) in the dead Center of Mosul would expedite many things in an LL (long line) very quickly …. IMO…. We will very soon.  …[What are the chances they launch 2017 at the program rate…??? We would all have to go back to the drawing board…..]  NO !!! !!! !!! … We will NOT !!! !!! !!!  The PR (Program Rate) can and more than likely will be in the 2017 Budget.

BGG ~ PR in the budget is highly unlikely.
