Kaperoni Moderator:    I can’t state this enough, there is no overnight RV or any kind of cash out through banks. If these articles show us anything, it shows us that banks by nature take a conservative approach to dealing with Iraq. If and when Iraq is in compliance with the IMF and meets Article VIII, then I would expect a few US banks to begin to participate with Iraq for investment purposes.

As that grows and the CBI demonstrates it can meet the needs and requirements, investment will increase opening the flood gates to investors. But this does not happen fast. As for us as investors, I have stated before, I believe we are just "watchers". We will see the dinar begin to rise via float when appropriate.

As for of cash out or exchanges would probably be through some type of currency broker/ ECN, market maker or investment firm. The problem is this all falls on Iraq to get moving. Without the new CBI law, deposit insurance law, Article VIII, etc. nothing happens.

mike  Moderator:   Good stuff Kap. Laser verrsion for these kinds of articles: US sees upside, banks aren't ready or supported, let's study and circle up again three months from now at the Hilton with the crazy all you can eat falafel bar.

What we're missing is political will to move Iraq forward economically. Pass the laws and empower the open market economy and the dinar will rise as the unemployment drops. These guys can create arrest warrants and pass legislation when they want to, it would be great if they focused a little more on the economy.


Punisher:
   US banks now have greater reassurance to the Iraqi banks, especially after the Iraqi Central Bank of positive steps to combat money laundering and punish the offenders."

10-19-2017   Newshound/Intel Guru BGG   Article:  "Iraq Will Remain United By HAIDER al-ABADI OCT. 18, 2017"  Quote:  "In June 2014, the cover of Time magazine echoed a sentiment common among pundits and outsiders: “The End of Iraq, it read. I am proud to say that three years later, thanks to the Iraqi armed forces and the Iraqi people, these predictions were wrong…"   What is Abadi up to??   Why submit this to the NYT today??   Of all the times to be concerned with what the world thinks. It appears there may be much more riding on this than we can imagine.

10-19-2017  Guest Guru BobTheTaxMan 
 My invitation to you is relax, ok…you bought your ticket, relax.  It’s going to come to fruition at some time.  You have your investment, so relax…When this thing comes to fruition you will know cause the whole world is going to know.  It had huge amount of exposure several years ago.  I mean even on national news everyone was buying their dinar, ok.  You’ll hear it.  It will go through the communities like crazy.  Another part of it is, when you tie yourself in to these groups that are saying, “With our 800 number you’ll be able to…”, You don’t need those.  those are not necessary.  They are not important.  I wouldn’t even bother with them.  So don’t worry about attaching yourself to anything like that.  So just relax.  You have an investment.  It has a great potential and it’s a minimal amount of investment. Relax.

10-19-2017   Intel Guru RayRen98  [...we are hearing it has happened, or is about to happen… not that we can believe anything from Maliki’s news sources.]  Yes, they have been claiming that ‘fake news’ is being put out in Iraq.  But Abadi did speak...  They said, “In the coming days it will be done”, and here is Abadi saying the same thing.  And I don’t know exactly when the RV will pop, but it’s clearly getting done based on what’s being done.  Of course it’s frustrating to wait, but if this had come out a year or two ago, we all might have made some major mistakes.

10-19-2017   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat  Allaq was in the USA at a World Banking Conference in Washington DC last week... If you truly listen to the speech ...you would see that he was introduced as the governor of the CBI, as has been done many times already in many other past meetings with the IMF, UN, World Bank, etc... So why was he not then the “official“ governor since his introduction was exactly the same?  Saturday’s introduction does not mean he is now “officially” appointed the governor the CBI.  We have absolutely no other confirmation that this has officially been done, and when he is appointed, if he gets appointed, you will not have to guess at it, since it will be international news and widely known.  I rechecked with my CBI contact in Iraq and Allaq is still a proxy governor. 

10-19-2017   Newshound Guru Adam Montana  Article:  "Haider al-Abadi Is Succeeding At The World’s Hardest Job!"    I said it in 2013, and I will continue to say it: Abadi is the best man we could possibly hope for to lead Iraq forward.  Elections will be coming up in 1Q 2018, which is not too far away... but if the election process will have any impact on an RV-push, we have to be prepared to ride this out a little longer. If Abadi does have a secret weapon in his stash to tip the Iraqi Dinar into a revalue situation, he could certainly use it at any time between now and April. I don't see a significant benefit to waiting TOO long, in fact it would be better to use that tool sooner rather than later. There will be some major changes across the board after the currency jumps, and it might be in Abadi's favor to have a month or two to settle everything down before he begins campaigning for re-election based on an incredibly successful 4 years.

10-19-2017   Intel/Newshound Guru payray   Article:  "The participation of a huge Saudi Arabia in Baghdad International Fair"  Quote:  "...during the period from 21 to 30 current month of October by 60 companies from various industrial and service sectors."    The Saudi's are certainly chomping at the bit to benefit from Iraq's potential... The need for the Iraqi economy to have a currency that is international in order to ensure that the Saudi's exports will be afforded, and bought within Iraq is essential...  Certainly would be nice if that added value would occur before the beginning of this 9 day fair...

"Preparation" - Intel Report from Alexander Gagin/Yosef via Jeff 10/19/17

I just felt this was IMPORTANT info to share with the community.

-- Submitted by Jeff



Dunford gave Beijing the thumbs up on readiness this morning just after 2am.

His US military did another fully dressed RV rehearsal last night (3rd in a row mind you) complete with military fly overs of civilian metro areas and the full exchange process in all 50 states plus Puerto Rico.

All began after sun down on the west coast.

This means US can now freely commence their portion of the RV at anytime. Which is a requirement for the Republic to be brought forward.

That’s why nobody in Republic leadership ever openly criticizes Trump—it was in the sovereignty treaty signed with the elders to wait until the RV released before they began dethroning Trump.

All redundant call and redemption centers are at this hour sync’d and deemed interchangeable without public detection.

There are 12 separate strategies humming at once in case of attack or event distraction.

Dunford is in charge of guaranteeing the delivery and performance of the RV for all American territories.

Much of his structural strategies were completed last year, but new centers were added or subtracted as needed with the hurricanes.

There were also additional software patches added to prevent hackers from freezing the system.

PR has a redemption location which is back up. This is why the US is waiting on major relief efforts financially—as PR citizens will have their own money soon.

Many in my camp feel nothing will happen until Chinese General Secretary Xi Jinping speaks tonight at the 19th CPC National Congress.

The once every five year event starts at 9pm EST tonight Tuesday (Wednesday 9am CST).

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2017-10/17/c_136686542.htm

Xi is first to speak and opens the conference by setting a national 5 year agenda for China and the world. It’s similar to the first State of the Union speech for newly elected American Presidents.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/reuters/article-4983484/Chinas-precedent-breaking-Xi-Jinping-gets-set-bolster-power.html

Perhaps this where we finally hear the term gold standard and it will be set in place for the Yuan to be convertible in gold, globally, and why nothing in the USA was allowed to go through as to give Xi total recognition for leading the world forward financially versus the three ring circus that is Trump—all by intentional design of China who now very publicly take control of all world affairs.

Things could and should move forward very fast from here on out, as today marks exactly two weeks remaining before the end of October and start of the 2017 holiday season.

We’ve heard from multiple paymasters T3 SKR bond exchanges would hydrate and be spendable sometime today in the US and Canada. This includes ZIM bond/currency redemptions privately contracted.

So stay ready and vigilant especially later tonight well into the wee hours tomorrow Wednesday morning.

God is with us.

chattels: In an official statement released two weeks ahead of the election, the IHERC said they had halted preparations for the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections due to the recent violence in Kirkuk and other disputed territories.

The deadline for candidates to register for presidential elections passed without anyone submitting their name for the top post. Gorran fielded a candidate but the electoral commission said his paperwork was submitted late. Current President Masoud Barzani has stated that he will not run again. He also ruled out any of his family members seeking the presidency.

chattels: The Kurdistan Region last held parliamentary elections in 2013. The presidential election has not been held since 2009.

chattels: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – A senior leader of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) has warned that the Kurdistan Region may split, leading to a civil war that would allow regional and international powers to interfere in internal affairs. Some elements of the PUK, particularly family members of the late former Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, have been accused of cooperating with Iraqi forces in the fall of Kirkuk.

The Talabani family denies the accusations. Mala Bakhtiyar, executive head of the PUK politburo office, said “there is a grave danger” of the Kurdistan Region splitting into two administrations.   http://www.rudaw.net/english/kurdistan/181020174

chattels: The Kurdistan region used to be governed by two administrations during and after the civil war of mid 1990s. The PUK controlled Sulaimani and Halabja, otherwise called the Green Zone, and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) controlled Erbil and Duhok, the Yellow Zone. The two parties pushed for unification after the US-led invasion of Iraq that resulted in one united Erbil-controlled Kurdistan Regional Government. The parties’ Peshmerga and intelligence services were never integrated.

chattels: SULAIMANI, Kurdistan Region – The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) has nominated a replacement for Kirkuk governor after the Iraqi president approved the dismissal of Najmaldin Karim from the post.

The country has nonetheless maintained a strong currency, continued to service its debts, entered a stand-by agreement with the International Monetary Fund, and increased its oil production by about 25 percent, all while fighting the Islamic State. These are significant accomplishments that should not be overlooked.

DinarResearcher: @chattels have stay optimistic and things will get resolved
DinarResearcher: I think it’s mostly talk

DinarResearcher: It could change tomorrow, remember we are talking about Iraq

chattels: @DinarResearcher Much more has eventuated from the referendum than I thought would / could happen.

chattels: @DinarResearcher Apparently it caught others by surprise as well it appears.

chattels: Kurdistan deploys Peshmerga to Kirkuk, prepared to defeat 'invaders' By Rudaw 1 hour ago http://www.rudaw.net/english/kurdistan/191020171

chattels: KIRKUK, Kurdistan Region – The Kurdish Peshmerga have been deployed to areas near Kirkuk, as a Peshmerga commander says that the time to liberate the oil-rich city is close.

chattels: Kamal Kirkuki, the commander of the western front of Kirkuk told Rudaw from the front line.

chattels: “The time will come,” he said, when asked about the time to launch the Kirkuk operation.

chattels: “As for the liberation of Kirkuk and the entire Kurdistan, it is coming and we will be victorious,” he added.

chattels: Rosneft, KRG sign contract to begin work on 5 oil blocks By Rudaw http://www.rudaw.net/english/business/18102017

chattels: “The parties agreed to implement the geological exploration program and to start pilot production as early as in 2018,” Rosneft announced in a statement on Wednesday. The company hopes to see full field development by 2021 of the five blocks that contain an estimated 670 million barrels of oil reserves. Rosneft will hold an 80 percent share.

chattels: After signing another contract to extend a gas pipeline into Turkey just a week ahead of Kurdistan’s independence referendum, a Rosneft spokesperson said they were confident the referendum would not affect their business ventures.

chattels: Many books will be written about the events since the referendum was announced in June and time is needed to gain perspective. I hear this and that as rumours, half-truths, lies and facts are amplified on Twitter with little chance of immediately assessing their credibility.

http://www.rudaw.net/english/opinion/18102017

chattels: But here are some initial thoughts about the new geopolitical position. The West's dogmatic defence of its One Iraq policy is becoming more of a One Iran policy and is continuing to define the constitution of Iraq on terms set by Baghdad which is clearly under the considerable influence of Iran.

chattels: Western weaknesses of doctrine and action have humbled the Kurds, but their own fractures, divisions and miscalculations have also been skilfully exploited and will take a considerable time to overcome.

chattels: Iran may be the victor for now but my best guess is that Russia will also be a major beneficiary of the terrible humiliation of the Kurds who could abandon hopes of help from the West and settle for a new relationship with Russia that helps Kurdistan to have its rights within Iraq and protect its borders.

Spectra: Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them.

But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Phantom809:    It is a good sign that Alak has been named CBI Governor instead of being acting Governor.

Ionize:  IMO...I feel as if we needed a permanent Governor in place to establish stability and prospective permanance at the CBI so that the IMF feels comfortable that there is someone permanent in charge..I don't think this is the only thing but one of the things...

Payray :  Article:  "The participation of a huge Saudi Arabia in Baghdad International Fair" 
Quote:  "...during the period from 21 to 30 current month of October by 60 companies from various industrial and service sectors."   

The Saudi's are certainly chomping at the bit to benefit from Iraq's potential... The need for the Iraqi economy to have a currency that is international in order to ensure that the Saudi's exports will be afforded, and bought within Iraq is essential. 

Certainly would be nice if that added value would occur before the beginning of this 9 day fair.

I just came back from my banker this morning to talk and order some more VND. I was at 5/3 and able to buy some more, but a friend of mine in Ohio was told at 5/3 where he banks they were out.

I noticed my transaction taking longer today, so I inquired about it. She told me they were learning a new system today.

She also told me what took so long was them, and not, the system. I shared that I heard a new system was coming to the banks that was much faster than the old system.

She told me, "Oh yes, it is much faster."

I further shared, "I hear it is much safer as well." She agreed.

Funny what information you can get when you have a casual conversation.

Samson:  Iraq will remain united

2017-10-19 at 10:04 (Baghdad time)
BAGHDAD - In June 2014, Time magazine covers an echo of common feelings among critics and outsiders: "The End of Iraq," as I read. I am proud to say that three years later, thanks to the Iraqi armed forces and the Iraqi people, these expectations were wrong.

Since then, Iraq has suffered steadily from the defeats of a daunting organization, a vicious enemy that threatens our entire region and kills innocents all over the world. Now that the liberated cities have been liberated, including Mosul, Tal Afar and Hawija, Iraq is ready to take out a full-fledged advocate. Millions of people, forced to leave their cities with brutal terror, are returning home. Schools reopen and doctors and nurses return to health clinics. We have begun the enormous task of rebuilding our nation.

Our people have made extraordinary sacrifices to liberate their land. Da'ash said that he could exploit the weakness of the Iraqi state, but it reduces the desire of the Iraqi people in unity.

I wish to unite for recovery and reconstruction as we are united to defeat our enemy. Many Iraqis have been shocked by the unilateral action of some elements of the Kurdish leadership - the main architects of the 2005 Iraq Constitution, which devotes and protects Iraqi federalism - to holding an illegal referendum last month. This move, which is directly contrary to the Constitution, is an act of deliberate division.

Worse yet, the referendum encourages encouraging remnants. No effort for autonomy or self-government can succeed if approached illegally. Unilateral acts that violate the law threaten the stability of our country as a whole, and therefore of our neighbors as well.

As Prime Minister of Iraq, I have to act in accordance with the Constitution to protect all the Iraqi people and to keep our country united. To that end, the Government has strengthened and recovered what is enshrined in its federal mandate: the federal authority on national borders, oil exports and customs revenues.

The redeployment of Iraqi forces this week to parts of Kirkuk and other areas in northern Iraq is consistent with this approach. These are federal forces - the army, counter-terrorism, police and rapid deployment units - and its members come from many ethnic and religious groups in Iraq, including the Kurds. This publication was not an attack on Kurdish citizens or the city of Kirkuk. Was an Iraqi federal operation aimed at restoring federal authority to areas under government control until 2014.

I have instructed these forces not to provoke skirmishes or conflicts. But they have a duty to protect citizens and defend themselves if they are shot. Our orders to the armed forces are to secure federal facilities in Kirkuk and other northern areas, to assist in the safe return of displaced persons and to maintain vigilance against terrorist attacks. We have instructed local officials to ensure that all public services are functioning normally and to improve service delivery wherever possible.

 Ensuring security will also require ensuring economic stability. After years of conducting unconstitutional oil sales and bringing in revenues, the KRG is on the verge of bankruptcy. This is the result of the corruption of a few Kurdish officials and their families. My Government intends to address the inequitable distribution of our national resources in order to discourage corruption in the Kurdish region and to protect the people there and in all of Iraq.

Just as Iraq has united to a crushing defeat over the past three years, we now need to apply the same unity to our following challenges: reconstruction and the building of a democratic country in which every citizen has full access to state protection.

I was elected prime minister in 2014 under incredibly difficult circumstances: a third of the country has been invaded by terrorists, the economy is struggling, people are divided by sectarianism, and relations with the wider world have been tense. 

We have made great strides. In addition to a daunting defeat, we expect real GDP growth of 2.9 percent in 2018. This year we managed to issue two international financing bonds. But restoring services to cities and rebuilding communities is not something that Iraq can achieve on its own. We need investment and financing to ensure that we not only recover, but prosperity.
