  1. This guy at Chase doesn't know much or is lying. I bought some of my dinar years ago, from a bank...Chase Bank.
  2. Awesome post NY Kevin. Agree completely, especially about only paying attention to 2 main people: Adam & Breitling. Only 2 guys in the community who give you honest straight forward, no-bs info or hype. I've even met Breitling at one of his events. Good guy, brutally honest.
  3. Gold Is A Currency, Even the Fed Thinks So - Tocqueville’s Hathaway Sep 29, 2017 Guest(s): John Hathaway Senior Managing Director, Tocqueville Asset Management (Originally Aired Sept. 19) - Gold’s role in the monetary system should not be questioned, this according to Tocqueville’s John Hathaway, who says even central bankers view it as a currency. ‘You see central banks accumulation, they bought more gold in the last couple of years than they bought U.S. treasuries so they think it's money,’ he told Kitco News at the Precious Metals Summit in Beaver Creek, Colorado. ‘They use it as a reserve because it is a reserve asset.’ Hathaway has been a vocal critic of the Federal Reserve, noting that he doesn’t expect much from the U.S. central bank’s latest meeting. ‘There's all this drama about shrinking the Fed balance sheet. At the end of the day, they're not going to do anything,’ he said. ‘They've put themselves into a corner they can't get out of and if they try, they'll destabilize the equity market.’ -Kitco News.

    NEW LOOK for CBI Website!

    So...back to original topic...waiting for the new CBI site to show it's new exchange rates.
  5. I'd exchange @ .05, only if we were forced to, i.e.: notes being retired. .10 is my rate to exchange some, .20 I'm all out.

    Plans if......

    @ 10 cents, 30% of my IQD, wait for it to rise. @ 20 cents, all of it. I'm not that greedy. Get gold. Buy it, pan it, mine it, hold it.

    Gold Spike

    It was a great day for us who trade Gold Futures.
  8. 6 usd to 1 iqd Unlikely. 6 iqd to 1 usd? Likely. That would be about 16.6 cents. I'd believe that. Not this.
  9. Gold Ready For $200 Jump In 2017 – Bank Of America CNBC reported that Bank of America is forecasting a significant jump in gold prices by the end of this year. “Gold is poised to make a big jump by the end of the year, at least according to Bank of America. The corporate and banking division says it expects the price to rise by around $200. That would put the price of gold at $1400 by December… Analysts at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch state that even though the commodity has been under pressure as a run up to the next Federal Reserve bank hike, there were reasons for optimism… Inflation and other uncertainties like elections in Europe tend to prop up the yellow metal. The bottom line: Bank of America says to bank on gold.” (“Bank of America says to bank on gold,” CNBC, 3/9/17.)
  10. Gold Highly Relevant In Strategic Portfolio - WGC The World Gold Council published its Outlook 2017 which identifies six significant trends that will support gold in 2017. “In 2016, investors around the world returned in large numbers to the gold market, as a combination of macroeconomic drivers and pent up demand kept interest in gold high. As we start the new year, there are some concerns that US dollar strength may limit gold’s appeal. We believe that, on the contrary, not only will gold remain highly relevant as a strategic portfolio component, but also six major trends will support demand for gold throughout 2017… “Using the economic perspective from our guest economists as a backdrop, we believe there are six major trends in the global economy that will support gold demand and influence its performance this year: 1. Heightened political and geopolitical risks 2. Currency depreciation 3. Rising inflation expectations 4. Inflated stock market valuations 5. Long-term Asian growth 6. Opening of new markets… “Gold is especially effective as a safe have during times of systemic crisis, when investors tend to withdraw from risk assets. As they pull back, gold’s correlation to stocks becomes progressively more negative and its price tends to increase. Gold historically performs better than other high-quality liquid assets during periods of crisis and that makes it an excellent liquidity provider of last resort… “[O]ver the past century, gold has vastly outperformed all major currencies as a means of exchange … This difference between gold and fiat currencies can drive gold investment demand as investors seek to preserve capital from depreciating currencies… But gold’s relative steadfastness can also support central bank demand. To that end, central banks continue to acquire gold as a means of diversifying their foreign reserves and we expect them to continue to do so in 2017… “Gold is becoming more mainstream… We expect this trend to continue and expand into Western markets, where pension funds have had to rethink asset allocation strategies following prolonged exposure to low (and even negative) interest rates. In our view, this will result in structurally higher demand….” (Outlook 2017: Global economic trends and their impact on gold,” WGC, 1/17.)

  12. Awesome SoCal. Wish I lived closer, and it wasn't the holidays. Would love to join you on a trip. Best of luck on your next hunt.
  13. The sign on the tomatoes read 990 today's value thats about $.83 cents. Doesn't look like anything has changed in value, yet.
  14. LaidBack quoted what I had posted yesterday on the auctions having gold prices listed. I had never noticed/seen it before on the CBI page, which is why I brought it over. Maybe the gold prices are for the gold coins they'll be introducing? Hopefully. But also could be just a general listing to let people know the actual market rate for dinar/gold ratio.
