TNT CC NOTES, 4 JAN

TNT Call notes 4-January-2016
RayRen: Good morning TNT super-fantastic family!  It is Monday, January 4, 2016.  A special message to FutureBliss who is protesting against the music:  why don’t you just hang up?  I’m checking to see if Pam is back with us after her vacation.  [Audio check]
Happy New Year, and welcome to the first call of the year, and hopefully there will not be many calls in 2016.  As we get underway, I trust everyone one had a different holiday. We all made it to the end of the year, and we will remember those who didn’t.
Getting right into the information… this should be a very short call.  Starting overseas, in Iraq – where are we?  The Budget is not publically out yet;  I hear it will show up in Wednesday’s Gazette, including the tariff and tax information, so it has not taken effect yet.  I did get some intel that it might kick in today, January 4, and I’m waiting for more on that after this call.  If any pertinent info comes in later, I will tweet it out to you.  At the moment the Budget seems to be out and implemented. I understand that there is some wiggle room.  Also, we expected the ISX to be open, but it hasn’t as yet.
A memo went out from the CBI to the exchange places over there, but I haven’t seen it myself yet.  By the time we get our hands on that, we  probably won’t care!
In Canada, we’ve been getting updates saying that the banks are not talking although they are seeing some higher rates on the screens.  They say they are expecting this between today and Wednesday.  That hasn’t been confirmed but we’ll give you the info as we get it in.  Some people have been escorted out the door but we’re not entirely sure why.
In the US, I’m hearing a lot of things. People are calling and texting with appointments they have, or that they have heard from others.  There are appointments taking place today and this week;  we’ll have to see how those work out.
Over the weekend, people said that their banking sources confirmed the memo I discussed last week, although we still don’t know exactly what the memo said.  Some banks were expecting a big rush on Tuesday, and some people have appointments today.  When we put that together with what’s been happening in Canada, and appointments for this week, meetings the banks are having – they are getting ready.  If you contact the wrong bank, they should be giving you an 800 number to make a correct appointment.  You will need to have an appointment to go to the places where they exchange the larger amounts.  We hope they will provide us with that 800 number, and if not, we will still tell you the next step.
The banks are still saying ‘any time now’, while others are saying ‘Tuesday’;  some other banks have a lot of appointments for today.  Time will tell;  sooner or later it will all come to light.  That’s all the information I can share with you this moment, because that’s all the information you can do something about in terms of planning and being prepared. When you go to the bank, be ready to negotiate everything.  Don’t take anything at face value, whether you want to negotiate up, down, or into oblivion.  If you don’t ask, you can’t expect.  Ask not, receive now.
I’ll do a few questions to the bottom of the hour, and then see how the rest of the day unfolds.  We wait upon Father Time.
646 caller:  How are the rates holding up?
RayRen:  Last I heard they are still there, although fluctuating a little bit.  The rates people have received in exchanges are different from what the bankers see on the screen. They are at and below what is on the screens.  Some people have received private exchanges at $3, and that’s what we see on the screens.  The dong and rupiah are still about the same as shown on the screen, so far as people have shared on their actual exchanges.  The zim is still at the double-digit rates we have been expecting, although early exchangers have been receiving single digits.  The rial?  No one has yet contacted me that they have even exchange rial;  bankers say that they are seeing some over-dollar rates on the screens.  It doesn’t seem like there are any changes on the rupiah.
Otherwise, Tony, DC and Pam are all doing well, having had a good Christmas and New Year.
Caller:  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
941 caller:  Do you have any idea who is stalling this at all?
RayRen:  If I told you, what would/could you do about it?  If we find out and it’s something detrimental to us, of we are left behind, then I’d probably be the first to spill it all.  Right now, I don’t see the wisdom in saying X is holding this up.
Caller:  There are newspeople who are interested.  This is ridiculous, and I hope that whoever is holding this up will meet their Maker.  Tell them to hurry up!  Have fun in Vegas.
206 caller:  What do you think – will we go to June?
RayRen:  I don’t have any information indicating June;  where do you get that from?
Caller:  According to what Shabibi put in writing, he’s not messing with any books, and he said 31. December or 31. June.  So I wonder what’s going on.  I read four Iraqi newspapers every day.  The Budget is still held up, the Kurds are unhappy, so do you really think they will RV their money? 
RayRen:  I don’t think they will hold up to June.  But in any case, there is nothing we can do.  All we can do is wait.
Caller:  Nobody has come forward to say they have exchanged.  The only ones saying that have is you.  [Caller repeated and got argumentative until Ray shut him down.]
RayRen:  Sure they have – haven’t you been listening?  You can choose to believe what you want to believe, but I have plenty of people of calling and texting saying that they have exchanged.  If you don’t like what you’re hearing, and don’t believe what we say, why are you on this call?  Go somewhere else and be happy.  You still have to wait like everyone else, so deal with it.
636 caller:  You are saying zim is at single digits?
RayRen: That’s what people have been saying who have exchanged, but single digits are still fantastic, and it beats what we would be getting otherwise, which is zero.  I wouldn’t be down in the mouth about single digits.
Caller:  Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, eh?  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
252 caller:  Can you give any information about that bank you were talking about?  You called me and I wasn’t able to the phone in time.
RayRen:  I have no idea what conversation you are talking about?  If I called you, then you have my number, so call me again and refresh my memory.
865 caller:  This is 404 with a question for you.  There was a brief reference to what’s happening the stock market, which had the worst start of the year since they’ve been keeping records;  what impact does that have on the RV?
RayRen:  I don’t know.  The intel team hasn’t really discussed that, one way or the other.
Caller:  What is being told to the Iraqi people in the mosques, especially after what happened to one of the clerics in Saudi Arabia.
RayRen:  We’ve had a challenge getting information from them especially in the last few days.  There has been no new information, just recycling the old intel on the television, still saying they are changing the money.  Until we get better reports, it’s status quo.
Caller:  Your information adds to the overall puzzle.  What odds on a normal call on Wednesday?
RayRen:  All the banks are still saying it looks like Wednesday, so no, I don’t expect to have a call on Wednesday and certainly not on Friday.  That’s all I can hold onto, is the information I get in.  The banks are saying, “We expect an influx on Tuesday/Wednesday” and all I can do is wait and see.  I can’t wrap my head around June when banking people came out of meeting this mornings that say “get ready, this is about to pop”.  I had one banking person tell me a particular day and time, and it didn’t go but at least it gave me something to hold onto.  TNT members say that they want to know what we hear, and that is what we are here to do, up to a point.  We don’t’ want to endanger anyone, so we tell you everything we can tell you that doesn’t jeopardize anyone’s employment.  The banks are saying ‘this week up until the weekend’.  Those who want to go on the slow boat to June, they can do that.  I am riding ‘within the next few days’.  All we can do is wait, either way.  There is nothing else we can do to make this go faster, and if you don’t like what you are hearing, get off the bus? 
Caller:  We won’t get off, we will wait. [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!  Negotiate!
RayRen:  We didn’t expect to be here in January.  It’s a new year, and there are bills.  We are hoping to be out of here by Wednesday and then the bills won’t be an issue.  Those who donate – thank you.  Those who don’t donate, that’s okay, too.  We will be here as long as we can be here, and help whomever we can.  Thank you, transcribers!

Regular citizens rioting in streets because financial reform has not taken placed as promised on 1/1/16!!! Pressure is Mounting in the streets! Let's hope the citizens are HEARD!!!

Dow dives 400 points January 4, 2016: 10:14 AM ET http://money.cnn.com/2016/01/04/investing/stocks-markets-dow-china/index.html ....AND The Middle East tensions is already causing turbulence in the oil markets. Crude oil prices have been extremely volatile, soaring 3% and climbing back above $38 a barrel. 

Dinarasaurus wrote The DOW started at 17424, so it has to drop over 425 points to drop below 17,000. I have no clue if that is a magic line or what, but it is interesting to watch
I'll say that today's call can be interesting enough to have it, considering what has transpired over the last 48 hrs or so

TK CHAT WITH MAC, 4 JAN

*) Morning Coffee with Mac 9:02am EST 01/04/16

(Terry K is out of pocket)
mac: Good morning GET room how were your New Years celebration
jannilew: Hey Mac
mac: Janni! Good morning dear, how are you!
arizona49: mac Good morning, hope you had a good and relaxing weekend  Coffee?
jannilew: Oh Mac! I'm SO confused
mac: Thanks AZ.
mac: Confused about what?
jannilew: All the articles, intel, guru stuff... it's all different. I mean, nothing seems to connect to the intel we've been getting. That, and then it didn't make sense to me, either.
oilerfan: Hi Mac


mac: Oiler, good morning!
arizona49: mac is it your thought that, a lot of articles as we get closer, are by design to confuse???
mac: Janni, you understand what will happen if we or anyone for that matter could connect the dots?
mac: Before Iraq is ready?
mac: AZ we were assured of one thing, the smoke would get thicker the closer we got.
arizona49: Yes, we were


mac: I was thinking about this during our break.(And binge watched BBC's Top Gear with my boys)
oilerfan: Well if the tensions in the M.E. get any worse the price of oil will rise that is for sure
mac: OIlerfan please elaborate.
mac: BTW, TK is off to another assignment in WV. So he will be "out of pocket" until TBD


oilerfan: The fear of more fighting and threats will shake the market
arizona49: Iraq's Sistani condemns Nimr execution, Sadr organizes protests http://www.reuters.com/article/us-saudi-security-iraq-idUSKBN0UH06L20160103 Iraq's top Shi'ite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani on Sunday condemned the execution of Shi'ite cleric Nimr al-Nimr by Saudi Arabia while another leading cleric said he was organizing demonstrations in Baghdad and the southern city of Najaf. READ IN FULL from above link


mac: OK, folks, let me see if I can encapsulate my thinking now that some were anticipating, and others were expecting an RV this week end and/or today.
jannilew: yes please 
oilerfan: let er rip


oilerfan: TSX was a joke again no change there
oilerfan: 1/4./2016 China fears regional conflict as Saudi Arabia cuts ties with Iran http://www.reuters.com/article/us-saudi-iran-china-idUSKBN0UI0QY20160104  China said on Monday it was concerned about the prospect of an intensification of conflict in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic relations with rival regional power Iran. READ IN FULL from Above Link


mac: I have said this before, we are trying to play a board game on a multi-dimensional surface. Meaning, we try focusing on one aspect of this to be "THE" key. When in reality this shift in Iraq’s value not only immediately affects them but the rest of the world as well. We have seen what happens when a country you were counting on to hold up their end, stumbles. Think Greece. Also as hard as you may try putting yourself in their place, we as westerners couldn't possibly understand the nuances of the Middle East. 


Add to that Zimbabwe, Viet Nam, Iran etc. We like the Brits like things neat and tidy. That is unrealistic. I personally have lived overseas yet know even my time in those countries were just a sample of understanding how their countries think and function. There is nothing unequivocal in this investment. Nothing. And the things that are, are just indicators not conclusions. Me, personally have tried after several years in this investment look at it more like the tides or like watching squirrels to determine how cold of a winter it will be. The squirrel gives me no indication of when winter will get here, just the type of winter we will have.
arizona49: mac very well said, thank you......I'll see you tomorrow 


jannilew: Yes, well said. So, we're still in that same good place?
mac: Relax, we know that the current financial situation in the world must change. But trying to will it to change only leaves us frustrated. We all have financial pressures on us, but these countries, including our own do not take us into consideration. They do not know us, nor does our pressures influence our Gov't to cooperate with the other countries to make this happen. We are passengers, not captains. 


This is a massive undertaking, looking at the macro and micro developments will make you cross eyed. Besides, will any of us care if it is anybody else who calls it right? No, you will be out living you new lives and no one will care after this currency changes as well as others. What we discuss here are developments, progress in the right direction. When we hear rumors of this and that, I just acknowledge it and see if it becomes a reality. Meanwhile, bills need to be paid, children need to be fed, dogs taken out. Your life is being influenced by something that will happen with or without you.

 This time God has given us is to put in practice who we want to become for Him NOW not after. Missing this time of preparation simply guarantees not reaching your full potential later. I am speaking from personal experience, folks. Life is happening now. And for those of us who have been here a hot minute can attest that it has made no difference whether we monitored this every day or stepped away to focus on the here and now as far as the changing of the RV.

mac: I say these things as plainly as I can because, tho I may not know you all personally still have love in my heart for you all. I hope it comes across as such.
mac: refill BRB


jannilew: Thanks Mac, You nailed ME. I have let my watching over this, become my main focus and put the rest of my life on back burner. You're absolutely right. I'm going back to business of living, working and having Faith.
jannilew: Well, at least that's my intention.
mac: Janni, thanks for saying that. This is meant to ENHANCE our lives not control it. Remember, "He who is faithful in little, shall be faithful in much."


jannilew: TV news is all over the down market, too.
mac: The most significant development I read came yesterday that Vietnam will now go to a float regime with their currency 3% +/- DAILY!!!!!


mac: Janni, lol
jannilew: lol
mac: Please, someone chime in my fingers are tired. lol
jannilew: I read that and must confess, I'm not sure what that means. It's good?
jannilew: Sorry bout your fingers. 
mac: Vietnams' currency is moving. That is substantial progress for them.


mac: Before Christmas, Zimbabwe was going to pay bonuses in ZIM. They are trying to wean themselves off the dollar in spite of having a deplorable exchange rate. Progress.
mac: Asia cell implemented the ZAIN network, allowing Iraqis to pay bills or send money anywhere in the world. Progress
mac: President Musam signed off on the 2016 budget before his deadline


mac: The 2016 budget is posted and in English. Progress
mac: Ramadi is done, Fallujah is in progress, Mosul operations will start shortly, again progress.
mac: We have come a long way in the past three weeks or so.
mac: Those looking for the switch either missed it or did not care.
mac: These are the significant things folks as boring as they may be.


jannilew: Thank you Mac, your words are like salve to me.
jannilew: I think everyone else is napping now (?)
mac: Ok, all, been procrastinating on the Tahoe. sub 20 temperatures weren't much of a motivator either. Gotta go finish what I started. Be blessed for you are, be aware of how God develops us today, if we are willing.


mac: Janni, if my diatribe helped just you, it is worth it.
mac: Keep your eyes on the immovable God. He alone is trustworthy and worthy of our trust.
wushock92: Amen!


wushock92:You really need to get a heater in that shop.
mac: Can't heat up concrete. I think you can catch my drivel in the forums after it posts.
wushock92: Take care and Peace be with you
mac: You too. See you tomorrow, all of you.

VIETNAM : CENTRAL BANK WILL SET DAILY DONG DOLLAR REFERENCE RATE , 4 JAN

 January 3, 2016 at 6:55 pm

HANOI Jan 3 (Reuters) - Vietnam will announce a central rate for the dong/dollar each day starting from Monday, shifting from a fixed rate of 21,890 dong/dollar to allow more flexibility, the central bank said on Sunday.

"The policy will allow the foreign exchange rate to be (more) flexible ... in accordance with the demand and supply of foreign currency within Vietnam and changes in the global markets while still maintaining the State Bank of Vietnam's (SBV) management role," SBV said in a statement on its website. LINK

MILLIONDAY TIDBITS, 4 JAN

Millionday : Reposted-   HERE IS A LIST OF THINGS THAT I PERSONALLY FIND AMAZING IN THE POSITION WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW... 

TODAY ISX WAS TO RETURN FROM AS STATED -- THEIR VACATION.  THE BUDGET WAS TO BE PRINTED IN THE GAZETTE A COUPLE DAYS AGO. 

THIS PAST MONTH IRAQ MET IN LONDON ABOUT THE ISX AND ALL IT IS OR WILL BE.  THEY ALSO ANNOUNCED THAT THE ISX REVENUES OBVIOUSLY WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE GDP. 

IRAQ HAS ANNOUNCED THAT THEY ALSO WERE TO A COUPLE DAYS AGO LAUNCH CUSTOMS AND TARIFF. 

 A COUPLE A DAYS AGO THEY ANNOUNCED THAT E-BANKING WILL BE LAUNCHED AS WELL. 

THEY HAVE ANNOUNCED MULTIPLE MEETINGS BUT MOST RECENTLY THE MOST EXCITING TO ME IS WITH CHINA AND JAPAN AND OF COURSE WE ALREADY KNOW OF THE MANY AGREEMENTS WITH THE US OF A -- EU -- AND THE LIST GOES ON. 

THEY HAVE ANNOUNCED THAT THEY ARE LAUNCHING AND VERY PROUD OF THE ABILITY FOR BOTH PUBLIC (LISTED ON STOCK MARKET) -- ZAIN AND ASIA CELL TO BE USED BY CITIZENS/CUSTOMERS TO PAY BILLS AND WIRE MONEY ALL OVER THE GLOBE.  

YES IT IS TRUE WE ARE VERY EXCITED AND THINGS ARE LOOKING VERY POSITIVE...

SO GLAD TO SEE US MOVE WITH PROGRESS THAT WE ALL GET TO SEE TOGETHER -- ITS BEEN A LONG RIDE.

Late Sunday Night:

LAS:  Iko - oil is flowing with tankers in gulf; Asian Markets dove into the red; OPEC slow production but wouldn't trust that; tidbit one contact says looking at tomorrow; nothing that he heard over the weekend happened; others things have shown up;

TennWolfMan:  According to what I have been hearing--we should be hearing some really good stuff tomorrow…. I pray tomorrow will be a great day for us all

Eagle1: From my sources and what I'm hearing we should be close to seeing this.

ALLonghorn: The feeling tonight is tomorrow at the banks are really crank up the private exchanges, but only time will tell. The more private exchanges that take place the closer the public exchanges and is considered progress.
