McDan:  IMO Iran CBI said the other day they were going to remove 4 zeros .

There currency becomes 4000 fils to the dollar or 1 usd x 4 Iran currency

Iraq is dropping 3 zero there currency becomes 1200 fols or .83 cents

to get the exchange rate of Iran and Iraq currency divide the 4000 fils by 1200 fils
and it comes out to 3.33 Iran currency to equal one Dinar

Div 1.00 by 1.20 =.83 cents

Div.  4000 fils by 1200 fils = 333 fils = Iran currency to Iraq Dinar    IMO

BDMous:  A few years ago,  the CBI stated they would wait for Iran to revalue together.   It is looking as they may/will.  We pray it is soon.

Noneb4him:  The articles are coming out fast and furious pointing us to the end of this chapter.  There is no denial of all this wonderful forward motion.  Electricity becoming stable, MoUs turning into contracts, corruption being discussed and kept in the forefront, Iran being put on ice, visiting delegations from brother Arab countries, salaries being paid, wheat and rice delivered... 

FORWARD March... left.. left... left, right, left.

Don961:  :   Inflation in Zimbabwe erases the value of savings

Friday 15 March 2019

Agencies / follow-up

About two decades of corrupt monetary policies have destroyed Zimbabwe's economy, which has boosted rampant inflation, eroding people's savings twice.

Unrestricted inflation of 500 billion percent in 2008 caused the savings to be worthless and led to the cancellation of the local currency for the dollar the following year, according to a Bloomberg report.

In the year 2016, the former government of former President Robert Mugabe, who was in financial straits, introduced securities known as "Bond Notes", while maintaining their dollar-dollar trading.

In 2018, the government separated the cash deposits from the electronic currency in banks without reserves to support them, causing the collapse of the currency price on the black market (the informal market).

Last week, the Zimbabwean government admitted defeat and allowed the Bund Knut to trade within the market-defined range, which once again reduced the value of savings.

The decision came after the country in the southern part of Africa, facing shortages of bread and fuel from strikes and protests, as well as attempts by President Emerson Mengagawa to attract new investments.

According to Derek Matisak, a research adviser at the Zimbabwe-based Institute for Security Studies in Zimbabwe, the reason for all this is the currency crisis.

"This is similar to the creation of a giant Ponzi scheme that arose under Mugabe's leadership. What we are seeing now is that the Ponzi scheme is collapsing," he said.

Ponzi Scheme is a fraudulent tactic invented by Charles Ponzi, where he promises to give investors very high returns with low risk by providing returns to old investors through new people in a speculative system that continues until the bubble bursts.

«Hypothesis 1 to 1»
While the last step has been welcomed by the country's business sector, it is unlikely that Zimbabwe's problems will be solved because all they do in fact is that they reflect black market exchange rates, said Stephen Hank, a professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Hank said the earlier hypothesis of a dollar-1-to-1 exchange rate was tantamount to science fiction,
 adding that the final decision officially said, "We will overlook what happened anyway," which means officially: "We stole you."

The exchange rate of the new currency between banks is about 2.5 per dollar, according to data published on the website of the Central Bank.

The figure is not significant as authorities fail to disclose trade volume, according to the Market Watch Zimbabwe website, which is run by financial analysts.

The site estimates the black market exchange rate of the single "Bond Note" at 3.31 per dollar.    link

IQD CHAT, 17 MARCH

Chattels   Iraq and China to sign massive financing deal
Imminent agreement will provide some $10 billion in credit for companies to invest, super-charging China's involvement in the Iraqi economy.

chattels   BAGHDAD - Iraq and China are set to finalize a major bilateral agreement that would give investors access to roughly $10 billion worth of financing.

The deal is likely to accelerate the pace and widen the breadth of China's involvement in the Iraqi economy, including the energy sector, and provide money needed for reconstruction and infrastructure projects that cannot be funded by the Iraqi budget alone.

chattels   Baghdad hikes monthly payment to Kurdistan

With an infusion of federal money under the newly enacted 2019 budget, the KRG is lifting austerity measures and returning to the days of financial dependence on Baghdad.

chattels   ERBIL - Iraq's federal government has roughly doubled the amount of its monthly transfer to the autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) — a sign of a deepening relationship of interdependence between Baghdad and Erbil.

Future payments are not guaranteed to remain so high. The 2019 budget law calls on the KRG to contribute 250,000 barrels per day (bpd) of its independently managed oil production to the federal government's exports - and if it fails to do so, there could be financial penalties.

chattels   Iraq's Federal Supreme Court has again delayed making a ruling in a much-anticipated case challenging the autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) independent oil policy.

In a session Wednesday, Chief Justice Medhat al-Mahmoud posed a series of questions to lawyers on both sides, which appeared to suggest he might be skeptical of the extent to which there are constitutional questions that need adjudicating, given that the key disagreements driving the case are currently being addressed in the political arena.

chattels   " We have also participated in the formation of the government in Baghdad and we are active in the government. We see a willingness on the part of the present Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to be more approachable. But the fact remains that the system in Iraq does not revolve around a single individual. There are many other actors and elements. But I can say wholeheartedly that the relationship that we currently enjoy with Baghdad is far better than it used to be."

chattels    " ............ the budget issue became highly politicized and kind of a stumbling block for the [Iraqi] prime minister to get hung up on 17% or any percent for that matter. That’s why we negotiated something that could work for both sides. We had to be pragmatic. This is a cooling down period with Baghdad.

But that is not to say all of our problems are resolved. This is a temporary formula that allows us to address the problem of unpaid salaries of government employees. The salary issue has at least been fixed. We will have a whole year to discuss all the details of the budget before the draft national budget for the next fiscal year is drawn up. We want to avoid quarrels."

chattels   " We have agreed on the customs fees with Baghdad. The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) is harmonizing customs fees with the central government."

LeLe   Never seen a bunch of Whining ** so called Men in my life.

Barzani: Yes, of course.

Monetary policy aimed at emptying Iraqi State Treasury is part of Iraq's riches dissipation scheme for continuing cash shortage of hard currency for the Iraqi dinar is not high compared to the dollar. Because obviously the more hard currency reserves to the State Treasury as the local currency value rises.

For this action the Central Bank years ago over the sale of the dollar coin auction is known for smuggled abroad by the politically powerful thieves and the bulk of it goes to Iranian banks to increase Iranian hard currency reserves to the Iranian currency value rises and keeps the deficit In the Iraqi budget so there is a big difference between the dinar and the Iranian currency that there is variation in the value of currencies that are based on trade because in many cases of buying and selling in the twins in the southern governorates and especially Basra. ..

But after the impact of the sanctions has intensified America on Iran that led to a massive decline in Iranian twins are causing it to decrease the balance of trade between the two countries and the decline of religious tourism has become so deep and large contrast gap between Iraqi and Iranian currency, Rowhani comes from.

Iraq to milking the rest of bounties in Iraq in order to rescue the Iranian economy through economic agreements turned the trade balance to zero in terms of Iraq to be a consumer background and State Park for all Iranian products without exporting any goods to Iran that if Iraq is known as has Non-oil revenues by majority go to Iran to cover the absurd wars here and there and the rest goes into the pockets of thieves on salaries and privileges of a fairy.

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended his country's foreign policy in Iraq, urging the Senate quickly to confirm the administration’s pick for ambassador, Matthew Tueller.

"I think we’re making progress on developing a strong, independent, sovereign Iraq, but there is no doubt Iran has its eyes set on taking control of that country," he said on Fox TV.

Pompeo rebutted a question on senate criticism regarding the lack of US diplomatic policy in Iraq.

"I disagree fundamentally. I know precisely what the diplomatic game is there, and if the Senate will confirm my ambassador, we’ll step it up even more," he added.

Tueller was nominated in November, but is yet to be nominated by the Senate. He testified before the Foreign Relations Committee on March 6. The hearings are often a test of the president and secretary of state's foreign policy.

Pompeo urged for continued US support in Iraq without Iranian interference.

"I don’t think that’s good for the Iraqi people, I know it’s not good for the United States of America, and we’re going to continue to do the CT [counter-terrorism] fight there and stand up an Iraqi Government that’s free and less involved with what’s going on in Iran," he added.

David Peyman, the deputy assistant secretary of state for counter threat finance and sanctions, cautioned last week that more sanctions against Iran are coming.

Iranian Ayatollah Emami Kashani, a member of the Assembly of Experts, claimed that the United States has been defeated in Iraq and Syria.

larrykn   "When the enemy uses his maximum facilities to press the country in sanctions, we must also have the facilities and we should find ways to cope with these problems," he added.

Pompeo will make a three-day visit to Kuwait, Israel, and Lebanon this week.

It follows a visit last week by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to Iraq.

Fri. March 15: As of Fri. morning March 15 the Bank of London was closed - the Cabal’s last stand – as the final Brexit vote concluded behind closed doors. According to Pentagon sources, "The Ides of March 15 should bring 85,000 sealed indictments and many arrests in the U.S.” On that same March 15 at midnight Zimbabwe and US simultaneously sanctioned organized crime and ended their money laundering system through instigating the Quantum Financial system which is digital, traceable and made nefarious money trafficking activities impossible to hide.

Sat. March 16: Redemption/exchange appointments should begin between Sat. and Tues. March 19.

Tues. March 19 Disclosure: The Indian Nations, Fines and Penalties and CMKX were getting funded starting March 19. The Chinese were wanting exchanges/ redemptions for Tier 4 (the internet group) started before March 19. All accounts would be made liquid on March 19. Q tweeted that big things were happening on March 19. This was thought to be the date of FISA Warrant declassification that would expose that the FBI, Justice Department, Obama, Clinton campaign and Democrats were in cahoots to take down duly elected US President Trump – an act of Treason. Indictments were also to be made public on March 19 against Clinton and Obama for their Treasonous roles in the Uranium One deal with Russia – or they may be given the choice of another way out, as happened with Former President George W. Bush and Senator John McCain.

Wed. March 20: Military Tribunals began in various secret locations on Jan. 2 and the 9/11 Tribunal began at GITMO on Jan. 28. The FISA Warrant Tribunal was set to begin on March 20 at GITMO. According to a 6 March 2019 Institute of Physics of the Earth Report sent to Prime Minister Putin, around March 20 the western coasts of the US, Mexico, Central and South America was set to experience a catastrophic 9 mega-earthquake that would unleash a deadly tsunami with 30 metric-high waves. Scientists were warning leaders to prepare the general population. It was not known whether or not this would be a man-made disaster. http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=118719&fbclid=IwAR1v_WKmlxdyCkSxFUPyGfo3a6sOAp3J8_ob8JJf4luv9u9BE9xA1HPJNzc

Fri. March 29: Britain's exit (Brexit) from the EU would take away the Cabal’s last bastion of rule over the global financial system by officially closing the Queen’s Bank of London on March 29. Back on Oct. 1 2018 the NY Stock Market lost all gains for the year and for the last six months has been on the brink of collapse, with no revival in sight. If Brexit didn’t happen on March 29 the Alliance would be forced to crash the stock markets to result in the collapse of the EU and the City of London. The 29th of this month was the drop dead date for Basel III as far as all countries have to be asset (Gold) backed and they would not be participating in the Global Currency Reset. Some say that the Bank of International Settlements planned to announce the gold/asset- backed currency standard on March 29. Others say the new global asset-backed currency system would be announced on Aug. 1.

Mon. April 1: Transition into the new gold/asset-backed Quantum Financial System was scheduled for April 1. (By international law gold backed digital credits must come on line in Central Banks by Fri. April 12). All Central Banks have been scheduled to transition over to the QFS by April 1. A new US Taxpayer plan should be out by April 1. The general public would start exchanges April 1.

Fri. April 12: All Zim must be redeemed by Fri. April 12.

Thurs. August 1: The Cabal was expected to be contained by Thurs. 1 Aug. 2019. All countries were expected to be GESARA compliant by Aug. 1. Some say the new global asset-backed currency system would be announced on Aug. 1.

Tues. 1 Oct. 2019: The Federal Reserve and IRS would close their books by 1 Oct. US Taxpayer monies had been sent from the Federal Reserve/IRS to the new US Treasury in Reno since Sat. midnight 2 March.

(Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on intelligence leaks received from several sources which may or may not be accurate. Other confirmed sources may also be included in this overview.)

1. The Alliance gave an ultimatum to the remaining Cabal to relinquish control over the City of London by the end of the month. This was why there was a massive push for Brexit, which would be publicly decided on March 29th.

MarkZ Disclaimer: Please consider everything on this call as my opinion. People who take notes do not catch everything and its best to watch the video so that you get everything in context. Be sure to consult a professional for any financial decisions

1. Our guess is they will deliver CMKX packages heavy either Sat. or Sun. night March 16, 17. I think it all breaks loose this weekend, and this is the last weekend we are not sitting flush!!

2. There are rumors that CMKX packages have been delivered in over 21 states now, but personally we still have only confirmations of packages in 5 states. TX, OK, CO, AZ, and CA. I'm assuming those tests were successful.

3. We are very hopeful we will see movement by tomorrow night Sun. March 17.

4. IT APPEARS, F&P may see pkg delivery Sunday to Tues then currency only group may go Wed. to NEXT weekend for the 8 to 10 days of HIGHER RATES?

5. SKRS have not been paid out to my knowledge, but the bankers I know are on call this weekend.

6. If things play out like we think, maybe 800 numbers on Sunday Night March 17.

7. I personally think 800 numbers after tomorrow night March 17.

8. I also think that it will be a couple days before any exchange appointments will actually happen. Maybe private groups will be going while the general public is still making appointments. Banks do want you all to exchange with them so they will be anxious to have you come in and exchange with them. I feel they will give you the best rates possible to keep you with them.

E. March 16 2019 Update: [SALVADOR Puche] 6:19 pm

All the codes for the payment of the Zim and Zim + Zim + S.PETCHILI offers were distributed from March 11 and yesterday March 15 at midnight Reno time all the codes have been unblocked; thus during the weekend the payment documents will be sent to all the main agents of the negotiations (more than 3000 in all the world) and in the next week the payments will be massive.

I. March 16 2019 No Wonder Obama Hates Trump - Trump just ended Obama’s Vacation Scam: Good news is always sweet especially when even Snopes will verify same.. It's No Wonder Obama's Last Speech Went After Trump. Obama's recent speeches are not to support his Democratic Party: They are to slam Trump for taking away Obama's taxpayer-paid next 20 years vacation! Trump cancels Vacations, and Refunds money to the American Taxpayers. This was verified on Snopes as being true.

Obama was going to stick us for $2.1 billion or so. Before Obama left office, he arranged with the State Department for a series of "official visits" to foreign countries spanning the next 20 years.

Using discretionary funds from the Office of Presidential Visits and Vacations, Obama was planning to use what would have been $2.1 billion in free vacations for him and up to 24 members of his family plus staff and even a dog sitter until the year 2036. He would have, that is, until Donald Trump put a stop to it.

Trump, who is always looking for ways to save money, was presented with a ledger that contained all of the Obama travel plans and expenses. The ledger was found by one of the workers Trump hired from outside the typical White House staff. Trump immediately canceled the plans and recalled all Secret Service agents scheduled to protect the Obama's anywhere outside of the United States

The Obamas are also facing another new challenge at the hands of Trump. They're going to have to repay the government for all of those vacations that weren't official state business. The bill, after some small allowances for days that were possibly work related, is for $214 million. Of the 692 days the Obamas spent on vacation, almost none included any work at all. They ate, slept and golfed and Michelle was given shopping allowances from the Office of Discretionary Gifting Funds, which is supposed to be used to buy presents for visiting dignitaries.

Tishwash:   Iran’s embrace of Iraq shows US sanctions are working

Iran’s state-controlled news outlets and politicians have put significant emphasis on the relationship between Baghdad and Tehran after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani last week made a surprise trip to Iraq — his first visit to the neighboring country since he became president in 2013.

Rouhani’s first visit to Iraq points to several important issues. First of all, the US’ renewed sanctions on Iran have indeed inflicted damage on Tehran’s economy. In order to offset the impact of the sanctions, the Islamic Republic is increasingly desperate to find other countries that are willing to do business deals and boost their economic ties with Tehran.
US President Donald Trump has been ramping up economic sanctions in the last year. Although the Iranian leaders dismiss America’s efforts to pressure Tehran, the sanctions have inflicted significant pain on Iran’s energy, automotive and banking sectors. This has resulted in a noticeable decrease in Iran’s revenues. For example, Iran’s oil revenues and exports have fallen approximately 50 percent since the US leveled primary and secondary sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

Iran’s banking system has yet to find an effective approach to stabilize the country’s currency. The rial has dropped about another 30 percent since the beginning of 2019 and was last week trading at 135,000 rials per US dollar. Meanwhile, the International Monetary Fund believes that Iran’s economy is officially in recession.

What is more troubling for Tehran is that the Trump administration is planning to further tighten its financial chokehold. This means that Iran cannot rely on the estimates it provided for the coming year’s budget, which is already less than half of last year’s. The budget bill that was proposed by Rouhani and passed in 2018 was worth approximately $104 billion, while the budget bill for 2019 was for just $47.5 billion. Most of Iran’s financial needs are dependent on exporting roughly 1.5 million barrels of oil a day, but Tehran’s oil export market is declining and the regime is not allowed to trade using the US dollar.

Being cognizant of these problematic issues, the Iranian leaders are attempting to use Iraq as a path to bypass US economic pressure. That is the reason behind Rouhani’s rush to sign agreements on trade and energy with Iraq. He took along a delegation of business people as the Iranian regime is aiming to raise its bilateral trade volume with Iraq from the current level of $13 billion a year to $20 billion.

A large portion of the bilateral trade constitutes exports from Tehran to Baghdad, which bring significant revenues to Iran’s ruling clerics.

Dr. Majid Rafizadeh

A large portion of the bilateral trade constitutes exports from Tehran to Baghdad, which bring significant revenues to Iran’s ruling clerics. For instance, Iran exported approximately $9 billion of products to Iraq in 2018. Tehran exports gas, electricity and non-oil commodities to its neighboring Arab state. After the Trump administration imposed its sanctions, Tehran’s exports to Iraq increased by more than 50 percent. In fact, in 2018, Iraq imported nearly 20 percent of Iran’s non-oil exports, which was higher than imports from China for the first time.

The second reason for Tehran’s heightened focus on Iraq is its aim to score a strategic and geopolitical victory against the US at this critical time.

The Iranian leaders aim to project to Washington that Iran enjoys political and economic dominance not only in Syria and Lebanon, but also in Iraq. The Iranian regime continues to intervene in Iraq through various strategies, ranging from influencing elections via the use of money to dispatching troops and transferring arms and missiles to militias. Lately, according to British security officials, Iran has been deploying hit squads in Iraq — under the instructions of Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) elite Quds Force — to silence individuals or groups that oppose the Iranian regime’s policies and interventions in Iraq’s internal affairs.

Iran has also been attempting to control Iraq and dictate its foreign policy by fueling sectarian conflict in the country. This heightened meddling led to Iraqi Vice President Ayad Allawi calling on Tehran to stop interfering in his country’s internal affairs. He said: “Iran does not have the right to meddle in the Iraqi affairs and I hope that (Iraq’s) relations with Saudi Arabia will be strategic.”

Thirdly, since Iran’s IRGC has been trying to ratchet up the illegal transfer of weapons and ballistic missiles to its proxies in the northern Middle East, further reliance on the military highway through Iraqi territory has become critical for the IRGC and the Quds Force. That is why Iran’s hardliners joined the moderates in hailing Rouhani’s efforts to strengthen ties with Iraq.

Finally, Iran is using Iraq as a proxy for its rivalry with the US. Tehran is attempting to project its geopolitical, military and economic dominance in the region, as well as trying to bypass US sanctions. The Iranian leaders are playing a dangerous game in Iraq, and this must cause significant alarm in the international community.

Don961:  Rohani fails to dispel Iraqi caution over sanctions   link

Don961:  Monetary policy and raise the visa fees for Iranians   link

MilitiaMan:  There are some interesting things to think about in these two articles. One is on the assumption that 7 million Iranian's enter into Iraq during the busy religious tourist season that pay $20.00 fees each visa. They go one to talk about double the loss over time in the balance payments because of the decline in the Toman (1 Toman is 10 Rials.).

They further say that in the past they had evidence of $11 billion state budget and Iraq was worth $3.3 USD, while suggesting the present state budget is 450 billion (450 billion,what?) and the exchange rate of 1,189 IQD  to 1 USD (Drop three zeros and that becomes $1.189 or $1.19 rounded, as they show on  the ( https://www.cbi.iq/ ) site in the calculator where if you place 3000000 in the currency converter it shows millions..(Whereas other numbers show billions.)

Same for 3, 4, 5, 6 are in millions...7 etc. is in billions... When in millions equates to $1.19..  Interesting they are effectively are saying the same thing in the above exchange rate at $1189 (drop zeros), which is $1.19. The grey area is the 450 billion of what?

Well, if we read close they share that they lost double the economic (read value, imo). Thus, 11 losing half of it's value is 4.5 billion (ish) real close "" in the balance of payments or trade (BOT). Muddied waters? imo.

Educating the citizens? Translation is rough..We shall see. But, lets look further. ~ MM

"About 20 million Iranians enter Iraq every year to visit the holy shrines of Baghdad, Karbala, Najaf and Samarra. Baghdad requires each of them to pay about $ 80 for the entry fee only."

MilitiaMan:  Now why would they charge 4x the amount for visas fees? To make up for the losses in the disparity of the drop in currency? Realize the Rial is x where as the black market xxx: ~ MM

1 USD = 41,994 IRR (official rate)

1 USD = ~112,000 IRR (black market rate)

Iranian Rial – is officially the lowest currency in the world.

The data supports what is coming out now between the sides. Washington and Tehran. Iraq can not afford to align with a hammered out currency. The sanctions, show that the disparity is massive. Apparently Tehran has nothing to offer, as so much as do many other countries in the region.

The trade imbalance is (per the above)  at least a double or even 3x real close.

When, one country plays by one set of rules that are USA sensitive, whereas, the other not so?..Pressure is being applied. Lets not forget Mahdi's background in finance. Yep, his past goes to the core.. Back as far as the Paris Club.

More recent is this:

"Baghdad receives huge promises of investments and projects from Gulf states, particularly from Saudi Arabia, but that will not happen if the government of Abdul Mahdi chooses allegiance to Tehran and retains the influence of the militias."

They have this to say in another article ~ MM:

Groups such as Hezbollah, al-Najibah, Asaib Ahl al-Haq and others are built from within the Iraqi fabric. They may differ in their gains and interests, but they adhere to what the "leader" says as they describe the Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei or the Qods Force Commander Major General Qasem Soleimani. For examplewhat the Iranian president or any other official in his government might say

However, this system is ultimately reflected in the interests of Iran's state directly or indirectlyas is the case today in light of the escalation of tension with the United States against the backdrop of the recent sanctions, and with Saudi Arabia at the regional level, and even inside Iraq when the emergence of trends contrary to Tehran many

The difference between the United States and Iran in Iraq was that the former made direct influence in the structure of the regime through its direct political and military presence, andbecause it was the de facto ruler of post-Saddam Iraq, which allowed it to penetrate the Iraqi bureaucracy and institutions of government and give it the upper hand in the decision-making process

MilitiaMan:  The point looks to be that the USA has Iraq's PM and CB Governor on board (see articles),and Rohauni has his work cut out for himself, as noted by the disparity in exchange rates. Having lost the ability to be effective globally, Iran is seriously under pressure.

The data speaks for it self, not me attacking or judging.. It speaks for it self. The leaning of Iraq towards the money, is evident. They clearly look to be siding with Iraq's best interest while placating a very important balance with a neighbor to the north, yet side with the west for economic prosperity for the whole of Iraq.

Taking care of herself and her people is a smart move based in trade imbalances.  imo !~ MM

"The Parliamentary Finance Committee on Saturday called on the federal government to take the American threats on the dealings of Baghdad and Tehran banking seriously, and not endanger the interests of Iraqis "for the sake of others."

Rashid added that "Iraq is in need of problems, whether with America or Iran, and therefore the federal government to take care of the interests of its citizens and not the interests of others, especially after the threats and warnings of America." Last week, the Iraqi and Iranian governments signed memorandums of understanding and various trade and economic agreements during Iranian President Hassan Rowhani's visit to Iraq, while experts say Iran sees Iraq as an economic "lung" to ease the effects of the US embargo. 


Earlier on Saturday, US special envoy to Iran Brian Hawk warned Iraq against economic cooperation with Iran, which "uses Iraq as a claw in a major political game," while threatening that its sanctions against Tehran would include its financial collaborators.

"The United States controls more than 40 percent of the world economy and international financial institutions, and its warning to Iraq is clear on the lack of financial dealings with Iran," said Ahmed Hama Rashid, a member of the finance committee. "Baghdad should avoid, as far as it can, Some of the files that irritate Washington, and do not put the interests of Iraqis in danger. "

Samson:  Iran announces date of cancellation of visa fees to Iraq

17th March, 2019

The head of Iran's Hajj and Visit Organization Ali Reza Rashidiyan announced on Sunday the date for canceling the visa fees for Iraq

"It is hoped that the visa fees for Iraq will be canceled on April 5," the official IRNA news agency reported, quoting Rashidiyan. "The visas for travel between Iran and Iraq have not been canceled but visa fees have been canceled

"The visa fees for Iraq were two months ago 40 dollars and rose a month ago to 50 dollars," he said, adding that "it is hoped that we will see in the beginning of the second half of April 5 cancellation of visa fees

Iran has proposed to Iraq that visit visas be canceled, but the Iraqi side demanded that they stay. The two countries agreed to keep the visas, but they would be free of charge   LINK

Banks, the return of the "gold standard": gold in financial statements becomes money

- by Alessandro Plateroti - 25 February 2019

What is happening on the world gold reserves? On the gold market there is a cold war climate: for the first time in 50 years, central banks bought over 640 tons of gold bars last year, almost twice as much as in 2017 and the highest level raised since 1971, when US President Richard Nixon (pictured) closed the era of the Gold Standard.

The interesting fact is that the European central banks, together with the Asian ones, have been the most aggressive in their purchases: fear of the euro crisis and of currency wars?

In reality, and this is especially true in Europe, behind the great maneuvers on gold reserves there is not only the traditional protective shield against major risks: there is also the call of opportunity. A reminder of which few still seem to know, despite the appointment is now a matter of a few weeks: those that are missing March 29, 2019. The day of judgment for the Brexit will also be the advent for the gold market.

It is not clear whether by choice or by chance, the Bank of International Settlements of Basel, the «Central Bank of Banks» for its key role in the world financial system, has set an appointment with the story for March 29: resurrection of the Gold Standard in the banking world.

For almost 60 years, the gold standard has regulated the convertibility between gold and dollar, engaging the market value: in 1971 it was the American president Richard Nixon, frightened by the bearish pressures that were likely to sink the dollar in the cold war, to cut the cordon with gold decreeing the end of the gold standard. Now something starts moving in the opposite direction.

Gold as cash

Il Sole 24 Ore has discovered that among the complex but well-known reforms of the standards for credit and finance from the "Basel 3" plan, there is an accounting alchemy that can turn gold into money in the balance sheets of the large banking groups.

From 29 March, by decision of the BIS, the gold in the portfolio of commercial and business banks becomes "Cash Equivalent", an asset equivalent to cash and therefore "risk free".

In fact, it is the first "reassuring of gold" since the time of the Bretton Woods agreement: technicians call it "Gold Remonetization", a process that is the reverse of the "demonetization" of gold decided by Nixon.

Same status as sovereign bonds

The operation of the BIS, as reconstructed by the Sole24Ore, carries the signature of the FED, the ECB, the Bundesbank, the Bank of England and the Bank of France, the G-5 of the great global monetary powers.

In 2016, when the new rules of the banking system included in the "Basel 3" package were defined, the Central Bankers Committee inserted an epoch-making norm that no one, however, has ever openly discussed in public.

In practice, gold in "physical" bullion - hence not under the "synthetic" form as the certificates - returns to be considered by regulators as the equivalent of the dollar and the euro in terms of asset security, thus eliminating the obligation to weight the risk for the purpose of capital absorption, as with any other financial asset, excluding (for now) the eurozone government bonds.

The turning point is not insignificant, for the gold market and for the very role of national gold reserves. The result is significant: with the new rules of Basel 3, gold is given the same status that is now recognized for sovereign bonds in banks' balance sheets.

A question therefore arises: is the promotion of gold the premise for applying a weighting of risk to the government securities held by banks? From the debt crisis, the regulators' objective was in fact twofold: to impose on the banking system to hold an adequate equity to cover the extent of the risks.

 In the crosshairs there are mainly the Government Securities, that according to current rules can be held by banks without any impact on their assets. The issue mainly concerns low-rating countries such as Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece, which were seen to be special after the debt crisis in 2011.

The banks of these countries, both to increase profitability (carry trade) and to facilitate the issue of public debt in auctions, have the highest amount of government securities in the euro area. And this phenomenon is particularly felt in Italy, where the banking system has 400 billion BTp on the 2.4 trillion of public debt.

What would happen then, if it were applied to risk weighting on BTPs as the Basel Committee wants? The consequences depend on the level of risk weighting applied to the BTPs: if it were high, some banks could be forced to replace the securities with other financial assets, including gold, or to proceed with capital increases.

At a time when the market is reluctant to buy bank shares, the risk of repercussions on the stability of the banking system could be high. Just look at the Credit default swaps (default risk insurance) on Italian banks: according to Bloomberg data, the 5-year CDS of some of the major Italian banks have surged since the spring of 2018, even tripling in some cases the value. It is in this context that the date of March 29 is approaching rapidly.

Countries that have repatriated gold from abroad regaining control and management are already protected from the risk of being short of physical gold after March 29 to make available to their banks in case they want to replace it with sovereign bonds .

In the arsenal of the system, there is a golden mountain of 33,000 metric tons of gold worth 1,400 billion dollars at the current exchange rate. And that represents 20% of all the gold extracted in the world in almost 3 thousand years.

As usual, the most forward-looking and prudent countries - or perhaps the best informed about the turnaround at the end of March, were Germany, Holland, Austria, France, Switzerland and Belgium, but also Poland, Romania and Hungary regained control of gold reserves, increasing their consistency.

China, Russia, India and Turkey, on the other hand, have been the nations that have bought gold in the last two years more than anyone else, with Moscow having even liquidated its entire portfolio in US government bonds to replace them with precious metal. But the problem is not this: it is on the price of gold that the accounts do not return.

In 2018, as many as 641 tons of gold bars were bought by the monetary authorities of every continent, but above all in Europe: it is the highest level since 1971. The maneuver is unprecedented and should be seen in the phenomenon of repatriation of ingots of state entrusted in custody.

Seven thousand tons of gold reserves were withdrawn from the central banks from the coffers of the New York Federal Reserve, while 400 tons were secretly released by the Bank of England. In recent years, but especially in 2018, a jump in the price of gold would have been in the order of things. On the contrary, gold closed last year with a 7% downturn and a negative financial return. How do you explain?

While the central banks raided "real" gold bars behind the scenes, they pushed and coordinated the offer of hundreds of tons of "synthetic gold" on the London and New York price lists, where 90% of the trading on metals takes place. precious: the excess supply of gold derivatives obviously served to knock down the price, forcing investors to liquidate positions to limit the large losses accumulated on futures. Thus, the more futures prices fell, the more investors sold "synthetic gold", triggering bearish spirals exploited by central banks to buy physical gold at ever lower prices.

With all due respect to those looking at gold as a safe haven. China, India, Russia and Turkey, has practically doubled the gold reserves in the last five years with this system. Moscow, to buy gold, has even sold the last 20% of American government bonds it held in currency reserves.

How compatible is such a situation with the duties of correctness and transparency of a central bank? Certainly, the system created by the Anglo-American "Goldfinger" really seems to be made for abuses. Who knows what will happen after March 29 ...
