DINAR OBSERVER DAILY – Sept. 20th

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   We have two pending issues before we will see an RV. One is a resolution on who, if anyone, will take Abadi’s place. I’m feeling more and more confident that Abadi may very well retain his position, and that’s a great feeling! Without getting too deep into it, because I’ve certainly spent a fair amount of time on this topic over the last couple months, I feel like he’s a great option for the country and it would be much more expedient for our purposes if he were to retain his seat.  The other issue, of course, is HCL. There are some rumors floating around that it is “done”… I have not seen any evidence to back that up, and that’s my stance.   [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]
______________________________________________________________

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   Steady progress has been made, but until the first item is cleared up we really cannot expect anyone to stick their necks out and “get it done”. Until they know where the money is going, they aren’t going to be signing any deals! And until they have a new PM locked in, they can’t be certain where the money is going to go.  It’s as simple as that.  As far as a “timeline” on this situation… I don’t know. It could be a week, or a month, or more. But they will not go forever without an official sitting Prime Minister, so as soon as that is settled, that is when we can expect things to move forward. Items of note:  1. I like progress. It appears that the Speaker role has been filled. Good news there! Keep up the good work, Iraq… check those items off the list until we’re ready for launch.   [post 2 of 2]

12thman (Dinar Guru) –  Just got off a call with our group and one of our US political insiders. This person made it very clear that 10-12 days out from the Mid terms was their goal.  They want a positive US environment… Stability and progress, not just in the M.E., is key. It’s just as important if not more here in our own country.  He went on to state that you will see lots of little things leading up to some big articles and statements made by key figures as we draw closer to Nov.

Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq: We plan to delete zeros from the local currency

Roudao – Erbil – The governor of the Central Bank, Ali Alaak, on Monday, the existence of a plan to delete zeros from the local currency, noting that “this plan needs to deliberate steps, so as not to be exploited in the fraud.”

Al-Alak said in a statement to the official Sabah newspaper that “currencies with small categories, may lead the citizen to bid farewell to banks in the difficulty of storage.”

He added that “the central bank has a future plan to restructure the Iraqi currency, including the deletion of zeros, but this plan needs to deliberate steps, and a stable situation in order not to be exploited in the work of fraud and others.”

He explained that “the Central Bank has a reserve of foreign currency very comfortable, approaching close to $ 60 billion, compared to 43 trillion dinars, which means that it covers 170 percent of the size of the mass of cash.”

On the launch of the currency of the category of 100 thousand dinars, the central bank governor pointed out that “these ideas are traded by the Central Bank, but at the present time regret it.”

The central bank introduced in April a project to delete three zeros from the currency, in order to confront inflation and stimulate the economy, but was forced to stop because of the deterioration of the security and political situation in the country “to prevent manipulation and fraud of weak souls.”

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   […when it comes to HCL how do they sell the oil they are pumping out without having HCL in place ? I. Your last update it does  sound promising after all most 9 yrs waiting…]    I still think we are in a promising situation right now!  “How” they are selling oil is exactly why they need the HCL in place. Without the HCL in place, their entire process is antiquated and inefficient, and prone to argument about profit sharing. Once the HCL is finalized, they can focus on other things… that’s why it’s so important. So, the answer is this: poorly, inefficiently, and not meeting their potential.

Chattels (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Central Bank Governor for {morning}: cash reserve is close to $ 60 billion”   Interesting article…Obviously the value of the dinar is the subject of some planning and discussion. What, if any, of the declarations of the CBI are reliable?  What does it mean for our investment?   Quotes:  “ …it is not right to make changes under unstable conditions completely, …;   …the central bank has a future plan for the restructuring of the Iraqi currency, including the deletion of zeros, but that plan needs to deliberate steps, and a stable situation completely in order not to exploit it in the acts of fraud and others.”

Kirk H. Sowell (Dinar Guru) –  So it is now officially over for Iraqi Prime Minister Hayder al-Abadi’s reelection. This press conference last night was a concession speech in every sense. His reelection effort is over… this was the end of his effort to obtain a second term.  Next, MPs have just now elected Muhammad al-Halbusi, currently Anbar governor, as the next speaker of parliament. This is breaking news. He belong’s to Jamal al-Karbuli’s al-Hal party.

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) – …If your expecting some overnight event your mistaken.  There are many experts that predict the dinar could take 6 months to a year to rise to a level equal with a dollar once they begin to float. Keep in mind it will be directly related to how fast foreign capital comes into the country through the cbi’s capital account…

I am telling you this now because I have knowledge of target dates already to get this done. I have a direct source in the CBI and we completed a recent long conversation over this issue of timing for the reinstatement. Again they reinforced to me that when we see the re-education process begin about the new smaller categories, this will be our signal they are going forward. If we don’t see it then we are in the window of 2019.

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) – The CBI is reprinting some denomination including the 250, 500, 1000 dinar as many are worn out from years of neglect.  Has nothing to do with RV or RI as gurus would like you to think. Why won’t the CBI RV or RI  the Iraqi dinar?  The primary reason is the CBI needs a tool to counter inflationary pressure created by a large influx of investment capital.  As already announced by the CBI the dinar will be globally traded.  It must float. The world sets a countries currency value. Supply and demand.

Another reason is the CBI wants to end the daily currency auctions.  To do so, they must have an alternative to generate revenue.  The CBI profits from the buying/selling of currency. And lastly because the IMF said so.  Despite what the gurus say the IMF made it very clear…”staff encourages the authorities to create the conditions which would make possible a move to a more flexible…exchange rate policy. Such flexibility could allow a predictable and gradual appreciation of the nominal exchange rate, triggered by strong oil revenues and the Balassa-Samuelson effect”…The IMF is clearly talking about a float

Rival Iraqi factions make coalition deal and end Al-Abadi’s prime minister hopes

BAGHDAD: Pro-Iran parties in Iraq reached a deal on Thursday to join a parliamentary coalition overseen by anti-Tehran cleric Muqtada Al-Sadr that ends Haider Al-Abadi’s hopes of hanging on as prime minister.

The compromise means members of the ruling Shiite Dawa Party will be excluded from competing for the post to lead the next government, negotiators involved in the talks told Arab News.

Al-Abadi, the head of Dawa’s political bureau, who was looking to win a second term, was the biggest loser in the deal. Nuri Al-Maliki, the former Iraqi prime minister and head of the State of Law coalition, who was hoping to play a key role in nominating the new head of government also lost out.

Iraqi’s Shiite rivals have been frantically competing to form the largest parliamentary coalition, since elections in May.

Muqtada Al-Sadr, one of the most influential Shiite clerics, whose Sairoon list came first, formed a 154-seat coalition including Al-Abadi and his Al-Nassir list.

——

At the same time, Hadi Al-Amiri, who heads the pro-Iranian Al-Fattah list, formed a coalition of 108 members, including Al-Maliki and his State of Law alliance.

Both Al-Sadr and Al-Amiri tried to register their coalitions in the first session of parliament on Sept. 3. The federal court had been requested to rule between them.

Violent demonstrations broke out in Basra, Iraq’s main oil hub, shortly afterwards. At least 15 demonstrators were shot dead, scores wounded and dozens of government and political party buildings set on fire, including the Iranian consulate.

Some political leaders saw the violence as an attempt to pressure negotiations in Baghdad, and Al-Sadr agreed to resume negotiations with Al-Amiri.

Several meetings were held between the two men in the last week at Al-Sadr’s residency in the holy city of Najaf, sources said.

“We have reached preliminary understandings with Al-Sadr and are working to turn them into agreements under the umbrella of Marjiyaa (the highest Shiite clerics in Iraq),” a key Al-Fattah negotiator told Arab News.

“Both Abadi and Maliki are out. Abadi is a part of the (new) coalition but he is not a candidate for the prime minister post…

Chapter 7 was a big deal. That prohibited them, via the United Nations and more, from making any major changes. Chapter 7 was the ONLY sanction that completely restricted them from RVing, in my opinion. There are other items that needed to be handled in order to make it easier, but even now – without HCL in place – they could still do it today.   It’s my opinion that it is not likely to happen before the HCL is in place, but they COULD.   [post 2 of 2]

These are dangerous times in Iraq. Iraq seems continually to jump from the frying pan into the fire and back again, IMO.  It appears that my sense of optimism about the avoidance of quotas and the announcement of a government sooner rather than later in this election cycle was misplaced. The Machiavellian Maliki is very resourceful politically and we should never underestimate him or the capacity of Iraq for self destruction.

Abadi: We came to Basra with sufficient powers to develop the necessary solutions

(Baghdad: Al-Furat News) Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi held a meeting in the presence of the Governor of Basra and the President of the provincial council and a number of local officials and the accompanying ministerial team.

A statement from his office received the agency {Euphrates News} a copy of it, “During the meeting was a detailed study of the reality of services and in particular the provision of safe drinking water.”

Abadi stressed that “our visit to the province of Basra today aim to stand on the ground on the service conditions and to ensure the stability of the province and the normal life in it, and follow-up implementation of the decisions taken by the Council of Ministers for the province.”

“We have come to Basra today, accompanied by a ministerial team and a consultant with sufficient powers to develop the necessary solutions and meet the needs of citizens. We look forward to the coperation of everyone to serve the people of Basra and complete the necessary service projects.” To the people of Basra and to respond to their legitimate demands. ”

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   While the GOI formation is dragging on, Abadi continues to be a positive factor. No matter who is “named” the next President, I think he will continue to be a driving force in the next phases of Iraq’s development and return to their former status. Make no mistake about this – Iraq suffered a huge setback with Saddam. They have had a long road to make it this far, and the next steps for them should be pretty apparent to anyone that isn’t a complete pessimist.

No doubt in an effort to undermine Abadi… 
______________________________________________________________

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   So the latest news from Iraq is that Parliament suspended it’s session today because Maliki is challenging the largest block which probably will end up going to the federal court which is simply stupid because this is just a stall tactic. So we end up with about a 2-week delay reconvening around the 17th of September. Hopefully at that time they start to assemble the cabinet choose a president and subsequent new prime minister within a few weeks thereafter.

Officials, diplomats, media witness convening of new Iraqi parliament

BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraq’s Fourth Council of Representatives is convening on Monday at 11 a.m.

Candidates who won seats in the parliamentary election on May 12 are being sworn in.

In the first session, which is presided over by the eldest member, the new MPs shall select a speaker and deputies.

The speaker will then choose Iraq’s next president.

Two main blocs have emerged. One is led by incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, the other by his predecessor incumbent Vice President Nouri al-Maliki. The former leads Nasr, while the later leads State of Law.

Both have announced they have the largest bloc, although both are likely to still curry the favor of some of the country’s Sunni and Kurdistani parties, which remain uncommitted.

Sixteen movements and political parties reached an agreement for the birth of the most important parliamentary block. The list can count on 177 seats (out of a total of 329). Today inaugural session of the Chamber, called to elect the next Speaker of Parliament. Within 30 days the Head of State.

Baghdad (AsiaNews / Agencies) – Sixteen Iraqi political movements and parties, including the populist list of radical Shiite leader Moqtada al-Sadr – winner of last May’s election – and the faction of outgoing prime minister Haider al-Abadi, will give life to the most important parliamentary block. The agreement, reached late yesterday evening, will guarantee its signatories the possibility to start work on the formation of the new government.

A close associate of Abadi explained that the block includes 177 deputies elected to the May legislatures. More than half of the 329 seats of which Parliament is formed and which represents a solid basis in the classroom for the future executive.

This morning the inaugural session of the new Parliament is scheduled, during which the president will be elected (a Sunni, by tradition). This will be joined by two other deputies.

The deputies then have 30 days to choose the future president of the Republic, in this case a Kurd according to the recent history of the country. He will have to get two thirds of the parliamentary seats and, once elected, will have 15 days to entrust the task to the largest block – in this case Sadr and Abadi – for the formation of the government.

The Kurdish parties, divided within them, have yet to formalize the names of the candidates for president, the most important in the country although it plays a largely symbolic role. At the same time, the outgoing premier Haider al-Abadi. supported by the West and having reached third place in the last elections with its 42 seats, will almost certainly maintain his position as head of government.

Analysts and experts recall that the Iraqi political system is designed so that no one, leader or political group, can dominate parliament; the goal is to prevent the return of a dictator or strongman, after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.

The start of parliamentary work and the birth of a block that has the numbers to form the new government ends months of doubts and uncertainties related to allegations of fraud that emerged following the vote. The country can therefore put behind itself a long period of political stalemate and face the many unresolved challenges: the war against the jihadists of the Islamic State (IS, ex Isis), the economic crisis, unemployment, corruption, the return of migrants and displaced, even Christians.

BGG ~ Wow – I was suspicious this might happen. While Barzani was crowing about being closer to Maliki, Sadr and Abadi did it without them. 177 deputies and no mention of the Kurds.

Now, something to watch is these upcoming KRG (regional) elections in September, not that it means much (or anything) to the currency investment…

…but as I postulated on the recent call – a misstep like this on Barzani’s part could spell trouble for he and his party in the upcoming regional elections.

He’s had a couple of monster political fumbles. This is a biggie.

The Kurds should have signed quickly. Instead they tried to be the “king makers” (like they were last time) and it blew up in their faces.

BTW – the electoral possibility was always there for it to work out like this (as I explained). However improbable, it was not an impossible scenario. The math was there – but WHOA. Big statement by Iraq.

These smaller parties realized, if they didn’t get in quick, they would be the ones left scratching for crumbs. As it turns out, they have put themselves in a much better position for the future.

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   […if the current leader doesn’t stay in…who is waiting in the wings and how’s it looking (in your opinion) if they take the reins in Iraq?]  I have a long list of potential government structures, with quite a few variations regarding the “who’s who” and “where they are” on the totem pole over there… all of my possibilities that I’ve drawn up seem fine to me. The ONLY scenario that I would cringe at is if Maliki somehow took over Abadi’s current role… that would be a serious setback of at least a couple years, IMO. I don’t see that happening… If it doesn’t, then I think we’re going to be in good hands.

Breitling (Dinar Guru) –  …There is nothing that has pushed the ability for the Iraqi dinar to revalue more than Trump’s energy plans.  Because it puts Iraq in a position that they have to add value to their currency to participate internationally…in the end it all narrows down to energy and 90% of Iraq’s economy is based on energy.  This is why Iraq is going to have to react to the market…the market IS the sanctions on Russia.  The market IS the tariffs on China.  The market IS the sanctions and tariffs on Iran.  So those are the engine of the market.  And that’s how you can anticipate what’s going on.

Abadi says to attend parliament session Monday as premier, election winner

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) – Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Sunday that he will attend the first parliamentary session scheduled on Monday morning as a premier and election winner after his alliance came third in the general elections, held in May.

Dijlah TV channel quoted Abadi as telling reporters that “the Victory alliance will be present at the parliament tomorrow, Monday. And I will be also there as a prime minister and a winner in the elections.”

Abadi said, however, that he will not take oath at the parliament tomorrow because that will prevent him from assuming his executive tasks as a prime minister…

They are dragging and dragging the process.]  Actually, they are moving faster than they have in previous situations. I’m optimistic over their constant improvements in their political processes – it would have been nice to cash in already, but it would not be nice to have them not making improvements.  Patience and a little bit of faith… sometimes both come in handy.

______________________________________________________________

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –  In typical Iraqi fashion…I believe things are now being delayed due to the lack of formation of the government which has direct impact on currency reform, opening the banking system, inviting foreign investment.  We also learn from one of our members who contacted the IMF that the Article IV Consultation has been delayed until the formation of the government. And if what we believe is correct – that nothing will occur until after that consultation it seems like we’re just have to wait a few more months.  And of course all the while keeping a watchful eye on the CBI currency auctions to make sure that they stay in compliance under the IMF requirements for Article VIII acceptance.

BGG ~ Oddly enough… this is what I just talked about (in my recent commentaries and our call). The new GOI being formed matters.

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –  ...the one thing that is missing, now that the Elections are mostly concluded, is HCL. I know I harp on that a lot, but it’s truly the one thing I see that MUST be done in order to have a successful RV.

Breitling (Dinar Guru) –  …Iraq is in a good position.  Even with their currency at a tenth of a penny.  There is no bad situation here.  It simply does not exist.  The currency is strong even at a tenth of a penny.  They are using it for a purpose at that rate.  There is a reason the CBI, the Ministry of Planning, the Ministry of Finance and parliament went to the IMF and said, “Hey, we want to start raising the rate, what do we need to do?  What positions do we need to be in?’  And they kind of gave them a charter in order to do that.  It’s very simple.  They haven’t gone off the reservation on that at all… Since I’ve gotten involved in this investment or this opportunity, it has not changed at all…it’s a timing issue and it’s related to the markets

Breitling (Dinar Guru) –  …Do you think the coke and the candy bar are gong to stay at a tenth of a penny?  Yeah, then they would be millionaires inside of Iraq.  But it’s not.  The coke and the candy bar are now going to be worth a US dollar.  So they don’t gain like you and I gain.  We bet with the US dollar and they did not…Price of real estate, prices of goods and services, the labor force, everything will follow the value.  For some reason people confuse that.  You and I bought at a tenth of a penny out of a US dollar.  So that is where we get our gains… [Post 2 of 2]

BGG ~ Where are we with this investment?

It’s something I get asked all the time.

Here are some thoughts on the current situation that may help some folks. So many say the politics don’t matter to the currency. This isn’t exactly accurate. The politics impact the economy… Iraq’s currency is, by many astute accounts, “grossly undervalued”. A basic definition of currency? It is a promissory note on the underlying economy of the country.

I am assuming any governing body with say in this matter is going to refrain until the results are final and a government transition is made or is being made. Just my thinking.

How is this formation coming along? There are now two main groups competing for the chance to form the next GOI…

Why sell Dinar?

Simple answer: I’m selling – so I can buy. I sell so that we can increase holdings and help everyone along the way. We keep what we can afford to. That’s the general concept anyway.

To answer the ding-a-ling critics – we’re aren’t “selling out” – we’re “buying in”. Which all started by just trying to help a few folks in a tough position.

Sometime back we were able to, because of our unique position – help some folks in a big way with their currency. This was when the various Dinar dealers were PUNISHING people on their buy-backs and not passing much on to buyers.

We helped. At a time when the advertised buy-back price was $500-650 per million (depending on condition) we were able to get one man $850 per million x 60 million which helped him save his farm. We didn’t make much ($25 per million – to be exact) – but we helped.

It was then I realized, if we were gonna’ keep this up, we ought to get registered as a dealer… just to be on the safe side. We did.

What does this mean for you? We try to offer the best number for those wanting to get out – and the best number we can for those wanting to get in or add more.

Our Sell price for today: $995 per million

Peshmerga can return to Kirkuk – if Kurds join Sadr-Abadi bloc

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Iraqi parties are busy building alliances which could soon form the basis of the country’s next government. To persuade the Kurdish parties to join its bloc, Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi’s Nasr (Victory) alliance has offered to cut a deal on Kirkuk.

“Kirkuk is a Kurdish, Arab, Iraqi city,” Ahmed al-Hamdani, a high ranking Nasr official, told Rudaw. “We agree for the Peshmerga to return Kirkuk, as they bravely fought side by side with our forces to repel ISIS from Iraq.”

There was “good coordination between Kurds and Arabs and there is no damage to be incurred if the Peshmerga are our partners,” he added.

Last week, the Sayirun alliance – led by firebrand Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr – teamed up with Abadi’s Nasir, the Hikma Front, and Al-Wataniya to form the core of a parliamentary bloc. If the alliance can win over the Sunni and Kurdish parties, it is well placed to form a governing coalition…

He establishes the first meeting of Parliament which is a marker for the formation of the new GOI.  The most curious wording was that Abadi’s main thrust was just to get it moving. He and Sadr seem confident they have the biggest bloc – else why push for this quick formation?

Use the dinar to conduct business. Issue the new lower category notes thus redenominate. Outlaw the use of the dollar in Iraq.

Sadr’s success in forming the largest bloc means the elimination of Maliki’s status!

Baghdad today – The success of the leader of the Sadrist movement Moqtada al-Sadr and his allies to form the largest bloc and the new government, which needs only 28 parliamentary seats, means the “loss” of the leader of a coalition of law Nuri al-Maliki for his political status in Iraq, the newspaper said. Pointed out that the Kurds have directed a “blow” to Maliki’s efforts in forming this bloc.

The newspaper said the United Arab Emirates in its report written in English and translated (Baghdad today), that “the bloc of Asron of Sadr says it expects to reach an agreement on the formation of a larger coalition in parliament,” noting that “the Iraqi Kurdish and Sunni blocs expressed their desire to form a coalition with the winner Moqtada Sadr, an indication that former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who seeks power, may lose his place in the political arena of the country. ”

She added that “the bloc of Asrun compete with the coalition of the rule of law, led by al-Maliki to conclude an agreement with the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (KO-Nu) as well as the Sunni blocs to establish the largest coalition in parliament.

“There are signs of an agreement between the Kurds and the Sunnis on the alliance with others,” Thenational quoted Raed Fahmi, a leading politician in the Asroun bloc, as saying…

It seems there is more to the story as the plot thickens with this and the revealing of the specimen notes.  IMHO, I think we’re staring at the end of the Turkmenistan model.  I suspect there is a a delicate coordination that needs to be worked out and much communication between several parties to get it on track.  Just my 2 cents in consideration of current information…

(Baghdad: Al-Furat News) Rajah member of the National Wisdom Movement Mohammed al-Husseini joined the National Axis of the largest bloc next week.

“The features of the formation of the largest bloc existed before the meeting of the Babylon Hotel, and other than that is the words of media,” he said, adding that “welcoming any demands within the roof of the Constitution and the law and otherwise are rejected.”

He pointed to “the adherence of some political forces to certain demands and positions,” pointing out that “there is Kurdish flexibility and we believe that the demands will be according to the Constitution.”

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   I…got a note from another member who wrote the IMF and asked about Iraq’s Article IV Consultation the response indicates that the IMF is waiting until after the formation of the government which could be next year hopefully sooner.  I have said in the past that I believe that consultation must occur prior to Iraq moving to Article VIII it’s not a requirement but it would be a good review of the banking system and encouragement. If I am correct and the CBI is going to wait until that consultation occurs then we have a few more months to wait.  Though technically the CBI could write the letter to the IMF at any moment and request Article VIII acceptance. And if they are in compliance the IMF would would agree.
______________________________________________________________

Chattels (Dinar Guru) –  My sense is that there will be an announcement of a largest bloc sooner rather than later in this election cycle because there is a movement to avoid quotas.   In order to do so the largest bloc must be clearly established at / by the convening of the Parliament and election of the President / Speaker of Parliament.  There is talk of Iraq being out of compliance on the spread between the official rate and the parallel market rate.  [NOTE: As of 8-20-2018 the rate has remained within 2% range for 90 days.]
______________________________________________________________

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) – Well, unoffically the CBI seems to have fallen out of compliance now with the spread at 1215 to $1What that means more than likely is they will have to get back in compliance and hold it for another 90 days. So – unfortunately it doesn’t look like the Central Bank of Iraq will be moving to Article VIII anytime soon. I’m not officially writing off the Central Bank of Iraq yet going to give it a day or two to make sure they are in or out of compliance. Because these numbers are not official if tomorrow’s numbers are lower they could be back in compliance. On another note it looks like the government is moving forward with the largest bloc being formed and announced.

The question now still remains  – What will the CBI now do since the election saga is just about over? I am told they will progress forward with the “project to delete the zeros” once again. We can do nothing but take a deep breath, relax and wait and see how the CBI reacts.

FACT REGARDING A MEETING AMONG BANKERS IN DUBAI…A PERSON FROM THE CBI USED THE PHRASE…LIFT THE ZEROS FROM THE NOTES…That does not indicate removing anything from the streets, it indicates removing 3 zeros from the notes

______________________________________________________________

Randy Koonce (Dinar Guru) –   Everyone asks me:  How does Iraq Pay for this?  This event does not Cost Iraq anything.   Many say that Iraq has over $35 trillion out on the market and would never be able to pay for this.  The truth is Iraq has only 35 trillion and that includes the new bills.  What do I mean by new bills?   Those are the 1, 5, 10, 20 dinar notes… When they RV, it will by design bring in the Large Bills:  “Remove the 000’S” from the Street“.   If you notice, remove 000’s” does NOT mean a LOP.  It just means they want to get them “off the street”.   And by the intentional design of this event, if you bring the RV out low, like at 10 Cents and the USD is worth more than the Dinar, then the Dinar will not come off the street because they will keep their Dinar and just use the USD.

Randy Koonce (Dinar Guru) –   First, we are in a new window of opportunity ‘right now‘.   When I say that, it does NOT mean it will happen “without a doubt in this current window” (Remember:  It’s Iraq!).   What it does mean is that there is a very good chance for the rate to finally change.  Now …I hope that one day I might get the opportunity to explain why this has taken so long.  There are so many factors at work.  More than one person and/or agency has had influence on the RV.  It has become far more political than anyone ever intended or expected.  Also, for anyone who thinks this will come out at 10 cents and float up –  they do not know how this system will work and did not read the right articles from the right people. This was never planned to be an ‘economic text book’ event.  The Currency will be a MANAGED FLOAT.  The word ‘managed’ is the clue.   It means that ‘someone’ will determined when to move it and how much.  The Dinar right now is on a Managed Float.  So, you can see that if it does not RV that it will not move
______________________________________________________________

Randy Koonce (Dinar Guru) –   People say that it is not pegged to the Dollar anymore.  That is BS.  The Dinar is currently pegged to 3 currencies, and will continue to be pegged that way.   When they change the value, they will be able to determine how much and where.  No one knows the exact Rate other than Shabibbi (still involved in the CBI) and the Governor of the CBI.   They were given a “Range to Revalue the Currency”.   And that range begins at $1.50.   Iraq actually needs it to be around $2.50 to be able to pay everyone and everything, and $1.50 will not leave them the ability to pay back the loans they will receive.   So, I am of the OPINION it will come in higher than that.  But we will see…   [post 2 of 3….stay tuned]

Then our event will happen!  However, if these events drag out, then the Event we are looking for just might happen without the Government.  It’s possible.  So our ‘window’ will last to the end of the month of August, with a strong possibility for next week.  The pressure will only get stronger closer to end of month.  …We REALLY are in the final stages of this.   I know that this administration wants this to be over, and they (he) wants it over NOW!!  We are SO close …So, hang in there Everyone.  It’s coming, one way or the other!!  Breathe.   [Post 3 of 3]

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   Iraq is on the verge of falling out of compliance at today’s auction 1212 to 1 US dollar. If they don’t reverse this in the next day or so they will fall out of compliance and then I expect the wheels to come off as Maliki attempts to drain dollars to help Iran.  And despite what the gurus will say, it could be months at least three but probably more like years before they get back in line because I don’t expect sanctions on Iran to be lifted anytime soon.  Crooks like Maliki will realize that they are out of compliance and do everything they can to help their allegiance to Iran and to reverse that it could take years. The last time this occurred was in 2012 and look it’s 2018 now.  Ideally I believe the US Embassy in Iraq should step in and remove all of these corrupt politicians and start with a clean slate with the hope of a short window to begin reforms.  So the next two to four weeks will be very telling… To see if the CBI can maintain the spread and if the government can be formed.

Here’s an article that is interesting:  “Abadi’s chances to assume 2nd term in office decreased”  …it’s an Iranian source. Which might mean everything, or nothing.

It is for other countries to know what to look for… As in when we walk through the doors with those notes, they can verify what they are looking at…Amazing what is staring at us in the face.. IMO!!

Abadi's coalition claims deal to form new Iraqi governmentAbadi’s coalition claims deal to form new Iraqi government

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s political alliance announced on Friday that it had reached an agreement with other major parties to form the next government.

According to a statement released by Khaled al-Obeidi, chief negotiator of the Nasr (Victory) Coalition, the deal includes the frontrunner of May’s election, Muqtada al-Sadr’s Sairoon coalition, Ammar al-Hakim’s al-Hikma (Wisdom) party, and Ayad Allawi’s al-Wataniya (National) coalition.

Obeidi said that preliminary talks with al-Hikma and al-Wataniya had “led to positive results and common understandings, preparing the groundwork for a viable government program.”…

They have trading agreements and exporting to Iran can definitely help them through the embargo. But food is not all they want from Iraq. Now more then ever they want the US dollars.  So where do these dollars come fromThey come from the currency auctions of course and so you can see the need now for a greater push to clean up this side of the corruption and maybe even stop these auctions altogether.
______________________________________________________________

Mnt Goat (Dinar Guru) –   Could this election saga finally be coming to an end? Its only 3 weeks from September. Will they try to drag this out until then? And even when they do finally announce the new parliament and prime minister then what? Will the CBI pull the trigger on the reinstatement of the dinar? Is the reinstatement already being slowly rolled out behind our backs? We see ISX going international already. Yes, there is a process to this SLOW rollout and DR Shabibi himself told us this is NOT going to be a sudden triggered event…but a very slow process. He said it would take months to complete.  Will the CBI complete the “project to delete the zeros”? This is what is going to bring us a significant change in the value of the dinar. Will the CBI finally launch the lower category notes? We know when they do this there will have to be some adjustment to the rate of the dinar to coincide.

Iraq Elections Results almost Unchanged after Manual Recount

Almost no change has been made to the results of a recent parliamentary election in Iraq after ballots were manually recounted over fraud allegations, the country’s top electoral body has announced.

The commission said early Friday that less than a dozen members of the Iraqi parliament, out of 329, lost their seats after a manual recount of the ballots cast in the May parliamentary elections.

The results confirmed the victory of Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s bloc.

The only major change that came out of the recount was related to the Conquest Alliance led by Hadi al-Amiri, who leads an influential pro-government militia force.It would have an extra seat at the expense of another political group known as the Baghdad list.

The Conquest will now have 48 seats in the parliament, remaining in the second place after the Sadr Movement, which has secured 54 seats. Incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s party will also have 42 seats.

The votes recount came following allegations of fraud which mainly revolved around the electronic voting machines used for the first time in Iraq’s elections, Press TV reported.

The recount results pave the way for political parties to form a government. The Iraqi supreme court must now ratify the new results. Once ratified, the outgoing president must convene a parliamentary session within 15 days to begin the process of forming a coalition government…

The counterfeiting of currency is a crime, and while restrictions vary from country to country, in some countries, any reproduction of banknote images – even for artistic or advertising uses – is strictly forbidden. Even in countries that allow some limited use of  banknote images, there are specific rules and requirements...”  “…Reproductions shall be depicted proportionally and the image shall be larger or smaller than a genuine banknote.  Reproductions shall contain the word “SPECIMEN” in bold lettering diagonally across the image.”

Economist: The Central Bank put solutions to stop the rise in the dollar exchange rate

Economist Bassem Jameel Antoine said on Sunday that the central bank has put in place solutions to stop the rise in the dollar exchange rate, pointing out that the central bank has stopped remittances with Iran.

Antoine said in a press statement that “the dollar exchange rate in Iraqi markets has seen a recent rise, because some dollar is delivered to Iran in cash across the border between the two countries, especially after the suspension of remittances between the two countries.”

I do expect it to rise fairly quickly over a 6 months to a year.  But again that’ll be directly related to the amount of investment that comes in to participate in the reconstruction of Iraq.   [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

But can I prove it? I can only go with what the CBI has told us in the recent past.

Bloodloch (Dinar Guru) –   We’re in a bit of limbo right now while waiting for Iraq to complete their election recount (reports are they are getting close), their federal court to certify those results (which should happen in fairly short order after the recounts), and the new government to be seated (which should theoretically happen almost instantly once the court certification is released). Some say that seating the new government is not necessary for a currency revaluation, but the CBI has stated that “stability” is one of the key elements (the other being “security”) to moving ahead with the deletion of the 3 zeroes project. Stability, some claim, is intrinsically connected to removing the corruption associated with the currency auctions, and so that brings us back around again to the need to seat the new government and remove a large portion of corrupt politicians who, in losing their re-election, will lose their immunity from prosecution the moment they are declared no longer a part of the government. Unsubstantiated reports are that some of those “losing” politicians have already started fleeing the country. I remain cautiously skeptical, but we shall see.  All we can do for now is to wait…

Economy News Baghdad: An official source in the Iraqi government, stop the program of credit readiness signed by Iraq and the International Monetary Fund in 2015 until the formation of the next government.

The source, who preferred not to be named for “economy News”, said that “the program of credit readiness, which earned Iraq a loan of 5.4 billion dollars from the International Monetary Fund stopped until the formation of the next government,” adding that “Iraq will begin after the resumption of the program The third review of the Iraqi economy by the International Monetary Fund. ”

He pointed out that “the International Monetary Fund criticized some of the actions carried out by the government during the past years and the latest delay in the House of Representatives in the adoption of the draft budget law for the year 2018 because of political differences.”

When they exchanged their money in, say 1 dinar, they got back a lot more dinar notes with more zeros but with less value. Sounds like the opposite of a LOP to me. Please don’t throw me in the LOBSTER TANK.]   I wouldn’t call that a lop – it was a devaluation. Their currency, and their “stock” in the world, simply lost value. A revalue upwards will simply recapture that value.  Not all of it. But a significant amount. And that’s why we are here.
______________________________________________________________

Whining and complaining isn’t going to change things one iota. Try focusing on the positive. I can tell you when I started following this way back, we would go months sometimes before we saw anything positive. Lately we’ve seen more positive movement forward than ever before. There are days when all the researchers here at Dinar Updates can barely keep up. I’m sorry for those of you who may of bought into this thinking it was a guaranteed ticket to overnight riches. That’s not how investments work. What we try to do here, and I think I can speak for most, is to portray the big picture. It’s not always what some want to hear but… reality is what it is.

Frank26 (Dinar Guru) –   Iraq still has a seated government and Abadi still the PM. IMO the smooth transition from the same government to the new government will have the same affect…the same results.  A newly seated government, less Malaki, Iran and Iran’s General’s corruption with be a “suitable environment” to RI their currency…as Abadi and the CBI requested. And so did Dr. Shabibi.  The Iranian influence is disappearing.  With the government.  With the citizens.  The Iranian Generals are losing their ability to protect Malaki.  Malaki as no longer a VP is no longer protected with immunity.  Arrest warrants await him.  Malaki will fight along with his fake media to the very end.  If given a Parliamentary seat it’s only to keep the peace.  IMO, Malaki’s power is gone.  No longer influential or able to use fear tactics to support his sugar daddy Iran.  In the next two weeks, somewhere IMO, around the 18-19 to around the 25th we should have a seated government.

Chattels (Dinar Guru) –   I find myself favoring a new terminology for the liquidity event we hope for as value and return from our investment in the IQD. My new word for it is ” Reset “. I no longer believe in an ” RI or RV “. I am still concerned about a ” Lop” and arguably all currencies ” Float “. Perhaps a ” Reset ” is some workable form of all of the foregoing?  My active thought is that we cannot rule out anything and must allow for that which we may not like.  In any event we must all find a theory which sustains us and the hope of a good outcome. If we do not finish the race we cannot know whether there will be a prize for participation at a minimum, eh?

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   Maliki he’s had his hand in a lot of troublesome activities over the years including stopping monetary policy reforms in 2012 so it wouldn’t surprise me if he was involved in what’s happening now.  To be honest I wouldn’t put it past Maliki being involved in the escalations and protest it prevents the formation of a government which he was going to be omitted from and more importantly stops currency reform in its tracks.  …unfortunately it looks like we’re going to be several months away at best due to the political disdain amongst each other.

US, Russia, Britain will protect oil companies in Iraq

Observers said that the United States, Russia and Britain will launch a military operation to protect the oil companies operating in Iraq amid ongoing protests witnessed in a number of provinces.

They pointed out that the three countries would intervene militarily if their oil companies or their employees were targeted by Iran Militia in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) terrorists.

The observers stressed that the Iranian plan regarding the isolation of Basra and targeting oil companies there has become well known.

On July 8, protests erupted in Basra against shortage of jobs, electricity, water and basic services.

Observers said that Iran seeks to target British, American and Russian companies in southern Iraq, noting that the three countries will intervene to protect their companies that are being currently targeted by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

They added that protesting in front of oil companies and blocking access to them proves that Iran is determined to spread chaos in Basra, Maysan, Dhi Qar, Najaf and other Iraqi provinces.

The observers said that Iran felt that Ahwaz would hold mass demonstrations this summer, so it turned the attention into Basra.

They added that IRGC’s existence on the Kuwaiti border aims to threaten the security of the Gulf and its oil fields, stressing that mullah’s regime is trying to implement a plan that aim to withdraw about 15 million barrels of oil from the markets and stop oil exports.

Observers who spoke to The Baghdad Post said that Iran stands behind the protests witnessed in southern Iraq.

They said that Iran is not only responsible for cutting electricity and water in the south, but it also inciting Basra’s residents against oil companies operating there because they are not recruiting them.

The observers pointed out that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani threats that process of preventing oil companies in the Gulf from working and exporting their oil would start from southern Iraq prove that Iran is standing behind the crisis.

They called on the government of Haider al-Abadi to respond quickly to the demands of the people of Basra in order to not give Iran the chance to use the situation to destroy Iraq.

Analysts stressed that Iran is playing a “dirty game” as the mullah’s regime has promised to spread chaos in the region to disrupt oil sales in the Gulf.

Observers called on Haider al-Abadi’s government to protect Iraq from the international intervention to protect foreign oil companies, as well as thwarting Iran’s plan that seeks to spread chaos in the region.

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   I wouldn’t look for a resolution in this election matter anytime soon. Maliki is now threatening a civil war if he’s not the new prime minister and all of the political blocks are against him having participation in any way.  Reading the news today it clearly implies it’s going to get worse before it gets better. The protest, riots, and large amounts of corruption including this recent statement that the State of Law the most corrupt political bloc in Iraq this isn’t going to get resolved soon.   And unfortunately all of this chaos which includes Iran’s economic failure, the protest are going to have a substantial effect on monetary policy including the spread. It is now highly likely that over the next several weeks Iraq will fall out of compliance if this escalates.  The internet in Iraq has been shut down in an attempt to minimize any kind of escalation in these protests. This also means that some of the media is now offline.

Mnt Goat (Dinar Guru) – …Iraq has completed 7 out of the 9 provinces they must perform the e-counting of ballots. The remaining 2 are expected to begin on Saturday. This is just about at the mid July mark, as I told you way back in early May and again and again in June that mid July would be the best timeframe and earliest timeframe to begin to think about any reinstatement of the dinar happening. We are not there yet and this is moving really close to this timeframe.
______________________________________________________________

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –  PM Abadi is a major component to the government, and YES – Abadi is still the Prime Minister, despite early reports that the votes were swinging against him.  How long that will hold is anyone’s guess right now, but for the time being he IS the acting Prime Minister, and here’s what he’s doing according to his Twitter feed:
8 hours ago: Abadi in Basra meeting with security commanders.
5 hours ago: Abadi meeting with Asaad Al-Idani (Basra Governor)
5 hours ago: Abadi meeting with Director-General of South Electric Distribution Company
3 hours ago: Abadi meeting with Director-General of Basra Oil Company
1 hour ago: Abadi meets with tribal/community leaders in Basra.

…There’s a reason why I highlighted where Abadi was 3 hours ago…Who knows where Basra is and why it’s important?   I’m getting reports that HCL is closer than the recent “news” is letting on. [Twitter times are off due to posting times]

BGG ~ All credible reports on the recount result until now, have indicated very little or no deviation – and no fraud or vote tampering. Which leaves us wondering what all the squabble was about? Who was making all the noise? Why? Why the attempts to burn ballots and impede the count? All very interesting questions…

Breitling (Dinar Guru) –  The price of oil when from 74 to 70 today.  I might have changed.  No one needs to revalue today.  But they are going to have to.  And that’s the language that they’re using.  So very remarkable.  Some very interesting stuff…90% of what Iraq makes is from oil.  It’s coming down.  It’s going to revalue.  The market will change…Iraq is going to have to add value to their currency.  Remember it’s artificially low.  They want open access to their currency.  That’s their goal.  That’s what they want to do.  And they’ll get there.
______________________________________________________________

Mnt Goat (Dinar Guru) –   The news now is all about the re-counting of the ballot results from the May 12th elections. ...Yes, yet another intentional act to delay the progress of the countryWhy are they doing this?Many of these gurus will tell you it is orchestrated by Nori al-Maliki and his gang to stall for time, hoping to delay the results long enough so he can put together his own majority coalition. I agree with this notion but be assured it is not going to work for him and is now only backfiring on him, as the citizens will surely find out who orchestrated this fiasco in the future and who stalled the formation of the govt. This will happen when the re-counting results show no significant changes. …So this is a very dangerous tightrope Maliki is now walking but I think he has been out maneuvered and is losing his leverage by Sadr.
______________________________________________________________

Mnt Goat (Dinar Guru) –   …Remember that we know that everything from the CBI standpoint if already completed and all they need is a “suitable environment” to continue with the “project to delete the zeros”.  They told us there was FRAUD and MANIPULATION that prevented the project from moving forward. We know this is in dealing with the currency auctions and involved almost 1/3 of the parliament members and their banking and money laundering schemes.  So it seems logical that if we want to know where the CBI now stands on the RV, why not look at what is going on to rectify these issues. …Many of these culprits will lose their immunity and thus can be served their arrest warrant on charges of corruption, but only after the election.

Why sell Dinar?

Simple answer: I’m selling – so I can buy. I sell so that we can increase holdings and help everyone along the way. We keep what we can afford to. That’s the general concept anyway.

To answer the ding-a-ling critics – we’re aren’t “selling out” – we’re “buying in”. Which all started by just trying to help a few folks in a tough position.

Sometime back we were able to, because of our unique position – help some folks in a big way with their currency. This was when the various Dinar dealers were PUNISHING people on their buy-backs and not passing much on to buyers.

We helped. At a time when the advertised buy-back price was $500-650 per million (depending on condition) we were able to get one man $850 per million x 60 million which helped him save his farm. We didn’t make much ($25 per million – to be exact) – but we helped.

It was then I realized, if we were gonna’ keep this up, we ought to get registered as a dealer… just to be on the safe side. We did.

What does this mean for you? We try to offer the best number for those wanting to get out – and the best number we can for those wanting to get in or add more.

Our Sell price for today: $995 per million

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   [What do you think is holding up the HCL?]  HCL at this time – it’s completely political. Everything I discussed…is directly related to the delay on the HCL, and that’s coming to an end quickly.  I’m excited to see this chapter conclude and see some HCL news in the coming weeks. Can’t be far off now!

BGG (Dinar Guru) –   Article  “The state of law reveals the fact that it presented “concessions to Barzani” to collect a third term for the owners”   Quote:  “Revealed a coalition of state law, led by Nuri al-Maliki, on Tuesday (July 10, 2018), the fact that he made concessions to the President of the Kurdistan region of former Massoud Barzani, during the visit to Erbil, last Saturday.”   This is an interesting article. My take? The Maliki spin machine is in OVER-DRIVE these days. This time leading up to the final announcement of the Iraqi GOI is the whole game.
______________________________________________________________

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   Here’s where my thought process is going, and I am getting more confident in this on a daily basis. Iraq is stillllgoing over election results from what seems to be ages ago… this is no different than most other election years, except this time there seems to be a LOT less drama, accusations, etc. Sure, there is still a bit of finger pointing… but this is NOTHING like what we’ve seen in the past. One example that stands out very brightly is the first Maliki vs Abadi race. There was basically kicking and screaming about those results! But at the end of the day, it all cleared up and we were left with Abadi for a few years.   IMO that was a great thing!  Now…it is being announced that we’re maybe a couple weeks from a true resolution and seating of both sides, and despite what would have historically been a time of extreme uncertainty, that’s not what I’m seeing and hearing.

Nouri al – Maliki .. His presence is a disgrace to Iraq and his role is suspicious and criminal

Maliki is using the scene threatened by civil war if not a key part in the formation of the next government

Iraq news – Maliki is exploiting the burning scene in southern Iraq to implement his threat to ignite the civil war if not major part of the formation of the next government.

We will give you the details in turn…

Ghost (Dinar Guru) – When Obama pulled us out is when ISIL took over.  I don’t think we’ve come full circle yet…When you get news from Iraq, Remember Malaki owns more than ½ the newspapers and radio outlets, that broadcast the news.  When you see the news coming out of Iraq sometimes it’s totally tainted.  There is only one reliable newspaper over there, “The Baghdad Post.”  He doesn’t own that one.  The rest of them are completely fake news.  Completely!  All kinds of stuff about Sadr;  All the election stuff – it’s all under control. … I do still have a lot of high level Washington contacts, contacts in Baghdad and a good grasp of the situation because of the position I had.  I still have quite a lot of friends that were over there with me that know exactly what’s going on in these investments.
______________________________________________________________

Ghost (Dinar Guru) –     …Malaki…basically raped the country of everything.  He marked up the dollar so merchants couldn’t get any money.  He made sure the program rate was very, very low.  He was adamant about stealing from the people… I’ve heard as soon as this election comes to pass he will be in shackles and very quickly. …Yes and the irony of it is as the partially convertible currency turns to the IR, we RV, we can see upward of $4 – $7 per dinar…$4.25 to $7.70.  I have sources that have told me that.  They are unconfirmed at this point.  Feel so strongly IMO!
______________________________________________________________

Frank26 (Dinar Guru) –    HANNITY ANNOUNCED (Tuesday Night) ON TV THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MEET ABADI IN BRUSSELS.  ABADI HAS A SPEECH ON IRAQ AND TERRORISM.  IMO…BAGHDAD IS TOO VOLATILE  FOR T TO GO THERE JUST YET.

Spokesperson: Coalition between Maliki, Sadr ‘unlikely’

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The Political Bureau of Iraqi election winner Muqtada al-Sadr says a possible coalition with the Head of the State of Law faction, Nouri al-Maliki, is not possible as they hold him responsible for the fall of Mosul to the Islamic State (IS) in 2014.

Dhiya al-Assadi, Head of Sadr’s Political Bureau, said in a statement on Wednesday that forming a coalition with Maliki is unlikely because he holds legal responsibility for what happened in Mosul and other Iraqi cities due to his role as Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces at the time…
