loop (Dinar Guru)-   Article:  “Iraqi command: western Mosul battle finished “on the military level”   Quotes:  “western Mosul is done on the military level”, adding that “what is left to do is to purge the remaining areas”.  “The remaining Islamic State members in the western side of Mosul are “gangs remnants that are targeted accurately by security forces”.   What he is saying is that what is left are gangs and not an organized resistance.

BGG (Dinar Guru)-   [What are your thoughts on the new cbi logo?]  Lots of changes going on at the CBI.  Change is GOOD

loop (Dinar Guru) – Article:  “Iraq’s economy is now on the way to recovery”   Quotes:  “The World Bank’s latest economic forecast expected Iraq to bounce back in 2016, growing at 7.2% in that year and continuing at around 5% in the next few years…With the security situation now improving, and the oil price on the rise – the indicators are moving in the right direction for Iraq’s economy.”   UK MP from Scotland telling a group of Scottish companies that now it the time to invest in Iraq to make huge profits in the future. She is saying the the greatest opportunity to profit from the investment is prior to their ascension into the WTO.   So once again we see someone from outside of Iraq pointing out what we have known for a long time. IRAQ’S ECONOMIC  POTENTIAL IS HUGE AND THEY ARE GETTING THEIR ACT TOGETHER TO REALIZE THAT.

Frank26 (Dinar Guru) –   IN MY STRONG OPINION…the MR has been going on inside of Iraq for quite awhile ago.  We’ve shown you many articles of how this is possible.  Infancy is NOT the starting of the MR…it is in the stage that it is in right now… WALKING…taking it’s BABY STEPS…and soon…it will start WALKING VERY FAST!  The speed will pick up  just like we told you.  BRILLIANT CALCULATED STEPS by Abadi and Trump!  The East is done is Mosul…and 95% done on the West side of Mosul.  Abadi said …I will announce to the world that Mosul is liberated at the Arab Summit.  Abadi is under the US control…not like a puppet …we are a TEAM …Abadi is a TEAM PLAYER…and when he returns back to Iraq…GAMES ON!

BGG ~ This is complete B.S.

BGG (Dinar Guru) –   [Would changing the rate of the Dinar have any affect on their rampant corruption issues?]   Just the opposite…them dealing with their corruption issues will help the world accept a higher rate for the Dinar. I am positive this is one of the items the IMF will be discussing shortly.
______________________________________________________________

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –  Article:  “Iraq on the brink of an ambitious program looming…”     I am encouraged that we will see the beginnings of currency reform within the next few months. We can hope anyway.

loop (Dinar Guru) –   [Would changing the rate of the Dinar have any affect on their rampant corruption issues?]   IMO…They have a good handle on the corruption going on in the banking sector. While they still have work to do on this front they have systems in place to catch the crooks. So I do not see it has stopping them from a rate change at this point.

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –  There’s one name in particular that I’m happy to see in the news: Abadi. Anyone who’s been in this for more than a couple years has seen the amazing progress that’s come about since Maliki got the boot and Abadi came stomping in with the big boy pants on! The GOI was revamped, decluttered, and streamlined. Parliament picked up the pace and got a lot of things done that were simply not happening under the previous administration, and now: 1. Abadi confirms he’s planning on running for a second term. I see this as a shoe-in, no-brainer, it will happen, DONE. (Yes, we are going to hear some noise from the Maliki Camp, I say…ignore it).  2. Abadi is working hard towards full IMF and basically global support, and the fruits are coming.  [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   3. “This week on Fox News Sunday: Haider al-Abadi, Prime Minister of Iraq, in an exclusive interview.”  Get your popcorn out! Abadi on with Chris Wallace this weekend. Don’t expect a huge announcement from Abadi on the RV…this is just more proof that Iraq and the PTB are not going to stay where they are. The country is poised to make a leap, and we’re watching!  Another thing I am paying close attention to in the news is Saudi Arabia… there is a LOT going on with that country right now. It’s a very complex situation, but the direction is tremendously good for us and for Iraq’s future as a very powerful and wealthy country. That might be one of the reasons why Saudi Arabia is taking these steps: “Saudi Arabia plans to cancel previous debt on Iraq”   Bottom line…this is happening fast, and we’re just here for the ride.  [post 2

MadDScout (Dinar Guru) –   I know Abadi had a busy day today [Tuesday].  Abadi today met with :  President Trump, V.President Pence, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and members of Congress, US Trade secretary Wilbur Ross, US Chamber of Commerce, along with delegations from GE and Boeing among others.  This is a very good feel of how the new US President is working in a positive way with Iraq.  [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   You’re probably also seeing a lot of positive news regarding ISIS, Mosul, etc on the “tube”. Or at least, you aren’t seeing so many negative news stories… and you know why that is, don’t you?  It’s very simple – the media isn’t making a big deal about Iraq anymore because things are going REALLY GOOD, and those aren’t the stories that sell ads!   …there is a LOT of progress happening right now with oil, agreements, and security. These are exactly what we want to see!  We are getting to a point in this Iraqi Dinar situation that has me excited again, finally, and it’s been a long time since I felt this upbeat about the Dinar.  We’ve been going in the “right way” for a long time, but now we are on a STRONG path to victory!

Keywords: government moving towards a free economy and activating the private sector

Economy News / Baghdad …Secretary General of the Council of Ministers Mahdi Keywords, said on Thursday that the government is moving towards a free economy and activating the private sector.

According to a statement of the secretariat seen by “Economy News”, that “Keywords keep getting the World Bank delegation headed by Mohammed Hassan Abdel Qader Chairman of the Group to improve the Bank in Iraq’s business environment, and during the meeting, offer a range of topics pertaining to the Iraqi economy and the environment of investment and the location of Iraq compared to global indices for the economy and business. “…

Aggiedad77 (Dinar Guru) –    Article:  “Iraq looking to raise obstacles to the entry of US companies to invest”  IMO when Abadi talks here about “raising obstacles” he’s referring to a lessening of red tape for American companies and also a HUGE reduction in corruption issues that have kept many companies away in the past…He’s smiling because he knows who will pave the way for the success of his government as well as his country…and it will not be Iran…He’s got a new buddy in President Donald Trump and his administration…IMO look for Trump to be paying Iraq a visit this year…Frank [Guru Frank26]  said that issues with investors has to do with Iraq’s restrictions on capital movement…as well as UN sanctions not being lifted, thus causing countries and investors to not want to go against the UN…Abadi has some definite changes he needs to make…that he can make…lift those restrictions…raise the value of your currency…get rid of the UN restrictions…IMO.
______________________________________________________________

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –    […wondering if Trump can push for currency reform.]   Currency reform is a consequence of economic and banking reform.   …the IMF has made it very clear the dinar will be floated and will rise as a result of the growth of the economy.  There is no confusion, it is stated clearly…the Balassa-Samuelson effect. Balassa–Samuelson implies that countries with rapidly expanding economies should tend to have more rapidly appreciating exchange rates.”  In other words Iraq’s dinar is directly related to the growth of the private sector/market economy.
______________________________________________________________

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “International Monetary Fund agrees to release contractors’ receivables”   Quote:  “The appearance of Mohammed Saleh that the second review of the credit agreement showed a clear understanding and success…This success is the understanding and agreement on the release of receivables of all contractors amounting to more than 4 trillion dinars once the Federal Audit Bureau announced the completion of audit contracts contractors, and we know the SAI is about to complete this process.”    So the IMF is going to pay almost $4 billion dollars to unpaid contractors in Iraq. This is huge.

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Sabri: Iraq’s economy will rise over the next five years”   ...this statement is in line with several of the CBI going back a few years that the deletion of zeros would take 4-5 years.  Sounds to me like they expect a gradual appreciation of the currency as the economy grows.  Anyone?   Balassa-Samuelson effect…

Abadi in front of reform .. Umm change?

With the approaching announcement of the end of the battle in Iraq with an urgent ending, there is a regional movement offset by the mobility of the politicians of Iraq with them, but within teams distributed here and there and new programs in the changing policy according to events, we will see new players on the scene, and others waiting for their fate between the withdrawal or withdrawal,

The American president is clear in his statements and not as his predecessor, Obama, and the Turkish situation of concern with the European Union, which seems to be moving away from the dream of joining after the stifling of positions, and what is happening, will affect negatively or positively…

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   The IMF would never agree to accept Iraq into Article VIII if they cannot comply with the Article VIII requirements…  That means they must show stability at 2% or less for 90 days prior to acceptance into Article VIII.  I don’t see anyway around that.  That being said, they could get off the peg without approval from the IMF.

firefly (Dinar Guru) –   Anybody that’s been in this investment for any period of time should know that a lot of negative news will pop it’s ugly head at the end.  Just remember what Dr. Shabibi said at Jackson Hole back in 2011 when he was asked when he will do the currency adjustment.  After thinking about the question for a bit of time he stated “AFTER MUCH MEDIA PROPAGANDA”    This is not about us. Just be thankful we were given the opportunity to be a part of this investment.  Timing is everything right now. One mistake in their calculations would be catastrophic. …the true rate will show on the CBI 1st.

I mean – they only deal with one thing.  INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND.  […can the CBI make a move before the DC meetings?]  the CBI can do whatever they want…if the IMF doesn’t give their blessing who are they gonna’ sell their currency to?  without international acceptance – there is no market.   [post 2 of 2]

The team would like to thank the Iraqi authorities for their cooperation and the open and productive discussions.”  Mohammed Saleh…he’s been in these big IMF “shindig” meetings from the 5th to the 17th… he’s excited.  [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]
