    Just a minute ago (I was freezing...) - I walked back to my closet - and for kicks I grabbed an old pair of Cords (pants) I haven't been able to fit in for YEARS...

    well at least it wasn't a BIG moment

    BGG says to larrykn(7:02 PM):
    It was not

    BGG says(7:02 PM):
    First curious piece tonite...

    IMF Launches New SDR Basket Including Chinese Renminbi, Determines New Currency Amounts

    Today, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) announced the launch of the new Special Drawing Right (SDR) valuation basket including the Chinese renminbi (RMB), and the new currency amounts that will determine the value of the SDR during the new valuation period...
    BGG says(7:03 PM):
    (7:03 PM)diagyAAAE was kicked out by diagyAAAE!
    BGG says(7:03 PM):
    So - that's an official IMF Doc - not some "guru spin"...

    Along the same lines...

    Yuan joins IMF’s elite reserve currency club in a milestone moment for China

    The yuan becomes the fifth member of the prestigious SDR basket on Saturday, but more reforms are needed before it is a freely traded currency, say analysts

    China’s yuan joins an elite group of reserve currencies created by the International Monetary Fund on Saturday in a move hailed as a milestone in the country’s rise to global financial prominence.

    From tomorrow, the yuan, also known as the renminbi, will become the fifth member of the IMF’s prestigious Special Drawing Rights (SDR) basket of currencies, alongside the US dollar, euro, Japanese yen and British pound...

    MadDScout says to BGG(7:05 PM):
    Makes them a "donor nation"?

    BGG says(7:05):
    Not sure what it will (fully) entail - but VERY, VERY interesting.

    MadDScout says to BGG(7:05 PM):

    BGG says(7:06 PM):
    BTW - we'll cover a few articles - then open this up for Q & A

    Next very curious piece...

    The Peshmerga under the command of al-Abadi and increase the budget of the Kurdistan

    Revealed a Lebanese newspaper, on Friday, the details of the agreements that have taken place during the President of the Kurdistan region Massoud Barzani 's visit to Baghdad and his meeting with Prime Minister Haider al - Abadi, as pointed out that among the agreements that were made Peshmerga under the command of al - Abadi and increase the province 's budget in the fiscal budget for next year...

    BGG says(7:10 PM):
    I'm not sure if I by into this "characterization" of the relationship - but HOW COOL???

    probably more along the lines of Barzani put the Peshmerga "at his disposal"... and then the spin gets going... IMHO...

    MadDScout says(7:11 PM):
    Not long term

    BGG says(7:11 PM):
    in any event - it appears this recent visit in Baghdad by the Kurds (which hasn't happened in a long time)... went VERY well...

    (almost as a "side note" it appears they are hammering out a new Oil deal... I would more expect it to be along the lines of the last, for expediencies sakes - "codified" in the next budget...)

    rather than a legit HCL... (which is fine)... it all works

    Here's a great insight from RCookie...

    Sadr: Barzani supports our directions

    Baghdad scales news – Vice President of the Sadr political body judge Jaafar al-Musawi, the approval of the President of Kurdistan, Massoud Barzani, on all the points raised by the delegation of political organisation.

    Musawi said after a meeting with Barzani extended in accordance with the statement/balance of news/copy, “the meeting discussed the election law and the higher Commission of elections and forming a cross block party and sectarian quotas in addition to problems between the Center and the territory and liberate Mosul.”...

    BGG says(7:18 PM):
    Mosul HAS NOT been liberated... though it is likely a "foregone conclusion" - some time ago, astute analysts have been saying the politics would be harder than the actual "battle" itself... and it looks like they are getting very close to broad-based agreement on the subject.

    BGG says(7:18 PM):

    SRW says to BGG(7:18 PM):
    China owns the largest debt of the USA!! If the USA doesn't get their act together as a nation and debt solutions, we may be flyin a Chinese flag over the White House. Never happen, but just sayin. WAKE UP AMERICA!! IMO

    BGG says to SRW(7:19 PM):
    That is one take on it...

    I hope you are wrong.

    larrykn says to BGG(7:19 PM):

    BGG says to larrykn(7:20 PM):

    larrykn says to BGG(7:20 PM):
    the first article I brought in from our news section showed that the Kurds got an increase of 3% of the oil revenues, that might be why all things are going well at that meeting

    MadDScout says(7:21 PM):
    likely to be raising the region ‘s share increased by 3% to 20% in order to enable the region to pay employees ‘ salaries and benefits

    BGG says to larrykn(7:21 PM):
    That may well be.

    MrsBGG says(7:22 PM):
    Are there any other questions?

    BGG says to MadDScout(7:22 PM):

    They are getting paid.

    which is fine...

    MadDScout says to BGG(7:23 PM):
    I still think like you the Peshmerga will be a "short term work around"

    For Mosul

    Pablo says(7:24 PM):

    MrsBGG says to Pablo(7:24 PM):

    Pablo says(7:24 PM):

    MadDScout says to Pablo(7:24 PM):

    MrsBGG says(7:25 PM):
    Any other questions

    Pablo says(7:26 PM):

    MrsBGG says to Pablo(7:26 PM):

    misterq says(7:26 PM):

    Pablo says(7:26 PM):
    Are they voting on the changes on the banking and finance laws this week?

    MadDScout says to Pablo(7:26 PM):
    I have not had a good look yet at the agenda

    MrsBGG says to misterq(7:27 PM):

    misterq says(7:27 PM):

    MadDScout says to Pablo(7:27 PM):

    MH_Countryboy says(7:28 PM):

    MadDScout says to misterq(7:28 PM):

    misterq says(7:28 PM):

    MadDScout says to misterq(7:28 PM):

    I kind of doubt it ...

    MH_Countryboy says(7:37 PM):

    MadDScout says(7:39 PM):
    Any further questions?

    BGG says to MH_Countryboy(7:39 PM):
    based on their own comments - it appears they have a little ways to go before the Yuan reaches that level.

    MadDScout says(7:40 PM):
    Thanks everybody for tuning in, hope to catch you back here soon.

    Have a great rest of your evening, as you were.
