    No comment on the barbecue, but we are on the same page regarding Abadi for sure!

    Just a quick follow up on the post from Wednesday... I'd like to call this one "Where in the World is the Iraqi Government?" I think a lot of you are following my train of thought here, regarding the formation or continuation of the GOI. 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. Check out PM Abadi's Twitter feed here: https://twitter.com/haideralabadi?lang=en It should take you about 45 seconds to skim the content and see what he's up to right now... and I really, really like it! These things are very closely aligned with the leads that I mentioned on Wednesday. Those who read carefully are about to be rewarded... I'm getting reports that HCL is closer than the recent "news" is letting on. Pop quiz! Who knows where Basra is and why it's important? (Spoiler alert! I'm giving a huge hint next ) For a quick visual on Basra, check this link: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Basrah,+Iraq/@31.6509393,34.1934518,5z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x3fc49771852a1535:0xb8d22927274bd410!8m2!3d30.5081033!4d47.7834888 Basra is situated conveniently near the Persian Gulf, which is the opposite end of the country from where the majority of the HCL activity is going to affect. From Wikipedia: There's a reason why I highlighted where Abadi was 3 hours ago... I'll have more to say on this over the coming days. It's getting fun!

    Happy Wednesday everyone! Today's update is going to be delayed a bit - I just had a couple of interesting items cross my desk that I need to research. I'll edit this post and add below a little later. Hope you're all enjoying the summer! ------------------- // UPDATE BELOW // ----------------------- First, the bad news - I leads on some JUICY HCL news, but I'm not able to verify 100%, so... that will stay in my back pocket for a bit. The good news - I have been able to verify SOME of what I was looking into, and without going too deep - it's related to a post that Yota just put up for us. Here's one piece I found to be very relevant: Here's where my thought process is going, and I am getting more confident in this on a daily basis. Iraq is stillll going 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. Quite the opposite, in fact. Given that lack of turmoil, coupled with the above quoted sentences, that gives me confidence that the Kurdish side is going to emerge as very confident in their position, the GOI in general is going to be moving in short order, and some of these HCL rumors I'm hearing are going to be surfacing. That means we're getting close to a real window of opportunity! Stay grounded, because the next couple weeks might just surprise a lot of us. VIP members, I hope you've been patient with cryptos... there was a major run / manipulation on the entire cryptosphere earlier in the year that led to the decline in pricing to where it is now. But with crypto hanging on, and continuing to advance, there's still a GREAT chance that "to the moon" is still on the table! Check out this clip I posted earlier today: We only had a couple weekly Q's. Here they are: No, it did not. HCL at this time - it's completely political. Everything I discussed above is directly related to the delay on the HCL, and that's coming to an end quickly. TG is still around, I think I just beat her to it a couple weeks in a row --------- ---------- ----------- That's it for now friends... Stay tuned, there will be more! I'm excited to see this chapter conclude and see some HCL news in the coming weeks. Can't be far off now!

    Happy 4th everyone! I’ll just throw out a little note to all my fellow pyrotechnithusiasts out there - watch the digits! If you can still count 10 at the end of the show, you done good Work is steady across the pond in that big sandpit, which is all I’m asking for right now. Abadi continues to move forward as if there wasn’t even another party and there weren’t elections recently. I’m not sure I’ve ever witnessed someone so smoothly ignoring the outcries from what has historically been a very disruptive opposition in these times. It’s actually refreshing to see! Many of you have followed my weekly posts for a long time, and you all know I’ve been a supporter of Abadi since before he was first elected to his position. His demeanor and work ethic at this time, in spite of what could easily be an excuse to let things slide… the man is once again proving he’s business minded and goal oriented. In spite of that, I think we’re still on the uphill slope of this thing, at least for the next week or so. There may not be an “official” announcement of an election “winner”, or there may be multiple “announcements” that end up being meaningless and Abadi just carries on doing his job… if we don’t see anything negative in the next 3-7 days, I think we’re looking at some HCL news within the next couple weeks, and that will get this train back on track. CHOOO CHOOOO!!!!! Looking forward to some exciting times in the VERY near future, my friends! All it’s going to take is a little nudging and we’re off. Since I’m expecting these weekly updates to get a lot more exciting, here’s the link to post anything you want me to address next week: I’m flying internationally right now and probably going to lose my internet shortly, so I’ll get this posted and catch up with you all later! The weekly DV lotto pool is a big one - don’t miss out on your share! http://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/topic/256755-dv-lottery-fireworks-game-73-74-2018 That’s it for now, everyone - stay safe and GOOO RVVVVVVVV!!!!! - Adam

    Morning all! It’s a cheery day in my part of Dinar-land, for a couple reasons… one is probably more important than the rest, so I’ll hop straight into that piece. GOI. The “Government Of Iraq” has always been a crucial part of this journey. There’s simply no way to raise the value of the dinar, and then maintain a higher rate, without a stable GOI. Those of you that have been around a while probably recognize “Groundhog Day” when you see it - we are currently wading through the murky waters of a dubious election process. This can be extremely confusing, particularly when we are trying to get our news from mostly poorly translated news articles, so I’ll break it down. I’m also going to explain why this is a “cheery” time in my opinion! The recent elections went down pretty much exactly like the last 2 or 3 election cycles… votes were cast, accusations of fraud were thrown around, and weeks post-election there is no clear victor. Let’s look past the “headlines”, though. Look at what’s actually happening, and things clear up a bit. Abadi's opposition is reported to have won something of a majority of the votes, so it’s possible that he’ll be donning the captain hat. Abadi, in the meantime, is apparently ignoring the entire issue and has moved forward with a good number of items that he could have easily ignored or postponed to dump off on the future President, should it come to light that he has lost his seat. This tells me that one of two things is happening… either Abadi is confident that he’ll retain his position and is eager to continue moving Iraq forward (towards an RV, of course!), OR he’s on the same page as his “opponent” regarding the future of Iraq. Either outcome is fine - the way things are moving forward is positive for us. I figure it will take a couple weeks for everything to shake out. If Abadi is ousted, he is still laying very solid groundwork for his successor. If he retains his position, he’s setting himself and Iraq up with a solid launchpad. No matter who is in charge a month from now, we’re heading the right direction, and with good speed. And that, my friends, is good news to me! Everything else is moving at a good pace, I figure we’re on pace to see some solid resolutions over the coming weeks. Don’t forget to add your numbers to our Lottery pool: And here’s the weekly Q’s: I already touched on the GOI, so regarding OPEC - that's fairly straightforward. Iraq is still in prime position to take advantage of everything OPEC has done over the last couple years. It's almost like they are setting Iraq up for success! But at the same time, OPEC won't "force" Iraq to RV - their actions and positions are only encouraging them to do so. Oil is stable and still perfect for everything we want to happen. I've spent a little time on that subject over the last month or so. I'm seeing a couple different possible scenarios, but I'm still strong on .10 Let's see how these next couple weeks shake out! I'm pretty optimistic about our upcoming timeline. That is one of the million dinar questions for sure! Luckily for us, in my opinion, it probably doesn't matter. I went into detail on how the CBI works and what to watch for with them - grab it for free in the VIP section here: ============================ All good stuff, my friends! I'm looking forward to the coming days, hang in there with me and if you're not in VIP - get in! http://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ That's it for this morning, have a fantastic day and GOOO RVVVVVVV!!!!!

    Adam Montana Weekly 20 June 2018

    Gooooood morning DV! I don’t know about you, but that seemed like the longest Ramadan ever! While I didn’t make a big deal out of it, I have been pretty keen on the news throughout the last few weeks. Ramadan + Elections is never an easy situation to analyze, and this year is proving no different. It’s pretty much impossible to determine exactly how this year will turn out, but over the next couple days I expect to see more definitive answers. Once that’s done, we’re on to the next phases. Since we’re in that limbo state for a couple days, I won’t speculate much about the course of things… the good news is we should only have a couple of days to wait for this to develop and give us a better picture to the future. Hat tip to @yota691 for bringing the relevant news, sometimes even before the Iraqi news sites themselves get it! Here’s a good place to see the latest: (If the link above doesn't take you directly to the 4th page of that thread, just skip ahead.) The bottom line right now is that Iraq is hashing out the elections, determining a victor, and we'll be moving forward shortly. With that said, I fully expect things to start ramping back up for us in Dinar Land, so the weekly Q&A sessions will resume. There’s only a few for this week, but be sure to get any further thoughts and inquiries into the next one here: This week’s Q’s: The immediate need is the election results... Iraq needs a captain for their ship. This should be done in short order, and then we're back on the hunt for HCL. I don't think so. I think passing the HCL will prompt another OPEC meeting, but OPEC related matters are going to continue "business as usual" until Iraq actually makes a move on the HCL. With any luck, and the way things are going, I'm hoping to see that happen soon. And I'll welcome the "emergency OPEC meeting" with open arms! Good morning Kristi! You pose a difficult question to answer in entirety, but one thing certainly jumps out at me - I bolded it above. Compliance/entry into Article 8 does not magically influence the world to resume trading IQD in the same manner as we do other currencies you can find at any old exchange desk... all the way down to the mexican peso! Thinking about it this way can be a bit of a distraction, so I try not to put a ton of emphasis or importance on "Article 8". The IQD will become "internationally recognized" once Iraq itself puts their faith into it - and that will be symbolized/shown with an RV. When the CBI changes the rate, nobody will care about Article 8. (Yes, that rhymed! Chant it. ) Good morning Hawaii50hawk, I don't spend a lot of time on Warka - I figure once the value of the dinar goes up, Warka will be forced to make some changes, and we will know then. Until then, Warka is just a sidenote on this journey. I think you'd get a dozen answers if you asked a dozen Iraqis! ================ I'll be here if you need me, but that's it for now. Let's hang tight till these ballots are counted, and as always, GOOO RRRRVVVVVVVV!!!!!
