    Howdy DinarVets! Superbowl Sunday is upon us, but that's not why I'm here right now. I mentioned in this week's update that we were expecting a Prime Minister to be named towards the end of this week. Those of you who know me are well aware that I don't give predictions very often... my sources were strong enough on this one that I went against the usual grain and put it out there. Sure enough... as of yesterday, Iraq has a new Prime Minister, and the name is Allawi. I also weighed in that I believed it would be one of the Allawis! That's a solid 2 for 2 on recent predictions, thank you very much! I should quit while I'm ahead, but what fun is that?! I've got one more in me. First, who is this guy that is now Prime Minister of Iraq? From Wikipedia: Here's what I really like about this guy: "...both times he resigned from his position in protest against al-Maliki..." There is talk about protests continuing due to his appointment, but I'm leaning towards "fake news" on that one. It would not surprise me at all to learn that the "protests" being referenced are paid for by Iranian or Malikian sources. I would normally avoid quoting anything published on the NYT, but there is truth to this: To be sure we are considering both sides of this new situation, here's another article: Here's what I'll note about that article: 1. "Hundreds" of protesters - not thousands. 2. The protesters, as stated in that article, don't have a person that they would accept. They are just protesting to protest at this point. So, what about my prediction? The one that could get me the coveted Turkey, the Hat Trick, the Trifecta? If this new PM Allawi shows immediate action on two items, we are on the fastest track to an RV we could hope for. Those things are simple: 1. Something, anything, to immediately show that he is "anti-Iran". and 2. Something, anything, to immediately show that he is anti-status-quo and anti-Maliki. These things are easy! And they can be accomplished this week. If he does these things, the protests will subside, and we are fast tracking. THIS WEEK, my friends! We are either going to see an RV or we are going to have a very solid picture of the actual "when", and I see it happening quick. I don't care if it's a penny, a dime, a dollar, or a full RI - we're looking at some good stuff. A quick note on how this investment plays out - when you are in our VIP group, you are guaranteed to get more in your pocket when you cash in, and more benefits.

    Good evening everyone! It is currently Thursday, 1st of August 2019. I started this yesterday and had a crash on my computer... by the time I got it sorted out, I realized I wanted to go a completely different direction with the update. Then I got swamped with *life* and before I knew it, BAM! A whole day had gone by... I'll just get to the MEAT of it! There's a lot of talk right now from the gurusphere... Article IV of the IMF, Article 140 with Iraq, HCL, Article VIII, August 2, Tiers of Tiers liquidating or being liquid or spilling liquid or... The interesting thing about all this new Guru stuff out there? They are actually on the right path, for once. Except for that garbage about "tiers" being "liquid"... but if the Gurus were getting it ALL right, we'd be in a pretty scary time! The IMF, GOI, and a few other sources are putting out some VERY high profile talk right now, and it's too hot to ignore. We all know I can't predict the date or the rate, so I won't try... but I'll say this again: It's too hot to ignore right now. Sure hope you're in VIP! The following thread is about to be locked due to exceeding the bajillion post limit... blame @Synopsis and posts like this: Whether you're in VIP or not, now is probably a good time to throw out a couple friendly Public Service Announcements... my friends, be SAFE and SMART when this happens! 1. Don't hand your currencies to anyone outside of a financial institution or maybe a currency exchange! (Regarding currency exchanges, there's almost 0 chance you'll get the "best" rate there.) 2. NOBODY IS CASHING IN EARLY! I'll send an email to every member of DinarVets, and a text message to VIP members. VIP members will also get extra instructions, to actually get the best rates and the wisest next steps. VIP IS MONEY WELL SPENT. 3. You WILL pay taxes... or face the consequences. If you want to pay the least amount legally possible... I have three letters for you: V. I. P. 4. The initial rate *may* be the best we will get... or it may be wise to hold out for a subsequent raise. I'll inform the VIP members on all of this. 5. DinarVets will remain online, but it may be largely unmoderated... there's a chance that all topics will become "Read Only" while I'm busy working with the VIP members during the first couple weeks. You're going to be tempted to go elsewhere for information... you'll wish you were in VIP, with access to the VIP resources. I'll post as much information as I can, to help the general public, but I won't be able to take my time to monitor or post updates for those that didn't support the site pre-RV. BE CAREFUL OUT THERE. There's more, as always... there is always more. There is very little chance that you will need to cash in immediately, and a very big chance that some guru will be saying you need to. Just be sure to keep a cool head when this goes down. I am REALLY looking forward to some further developments on the latest, because I can't remember the last time we had THIS much good stuff brewing all at the same time. GOOOO RRRVVVV!!!

    Good afternoon, DinarVets peoples! This update is one of the most optimistic ones I've had the pleasure of writing in quite some time. We're transitioning into the next scene for Iraq, and it's happening now. It might help everyone understand my line of thought by giving a short timeline: Eons ago, an evil force was removed from power in Iraq. The country spiraled into the stone ages, they lost their wealth, and their currency plummeted in value. Sanctions were imposed on Iraq, wars raged. Lots of conspiracy theories to discuss there, but let's stay focused Through years of hard work and slow progress, the major sanctions were lifted (Chapter 7), and Iraq rebuilt it's government. Iraq's currency has also regained value. Make no mistake - going from 4000:1 to 1190:1 is nothing to scoff at! As Iraq has continued to improve on it's situation, they have gone through various leaders... Maliki probably being the worst, Abadi the best. Mahdi had a chance, but... ... on October 1, 2019, the Iraqi people (middle eastern millennials, mostly) basically revolted against Mahdi and the current GOI, and - - shortly after the rioting began, Mahdi resigned his position. Note: he is still acting as Prime Minister until a new PostTurtle is selected. That brings us to the present day, so let's put it all into perspective. We just walked through a 16 year story with very little detail. The small details that fell by the wayside through that timeline simply don't matter once we cash in, do they? No, they don't. When the rioting was in full force, I stated that we were in for a bit of a wait. Turns out it was only a couple months. The next step is to place someone in the Prime Minister position, and that looks like it's going to happen fairly quick. At this time, we have a Budget that is on track, including full agreement that the KRG will pay their share of the budget with 250,000 barrels of oil. Article 140, related to some disputed territories, is front and center again. This is an issue that won't be completely resolved immediately, but it doesn't need to be. "80% done is done enough" on that matter for us to see the HCL move. Those three items - New Prime Minister, Article 140, and Baghdad and KRG agreeing so peacefully on a number for the Budget, are all GREAT for seeing the HCL move, and that's what we need to open the path for an increase in the exchange rate. Fingers crossed for HCL news, because when that hits the press... it's probably a done deal at that time. We could be a couple weeks out from a huge change. This is all coming together at the same general time, and the combination is exciting. GO HCL. GO RV. GO IRAQ! - Adam

    It's 9/11/19... never forget. I have an update, but it won't be posted till tomorrow. In the meantime... ================ Good morning all! 12 September, 2019 as I'm editing this post. September 11 is always a tough day for me personally... Like many of you, I remember exactly where I was. What I felt. How deeply I and my fellow Americans and indeed the world were affected on that day. As important as the Iraqi Dinar RV is to many of us, I simply could not bring myself to post anything other than my heartfelt remembrance yesterday. My heart, prayers, and thoughts will always be with the many who were affected on that day years ago - but today is a new day, and while I/We will never forget... we must move forward. As we move forward, to the present day, where so much has changed and yet so much has not, there is another situation that is taking a lot of my time right now - the devastation left by Hurricane Dorian, particularly in the Bahamas. I've been personally involved with some relief missions over the last week, and I'm continuing to work with a couple of groups that are dedicated to helping the Bahamians long after this current disaster is out of the News. This community has came together in the past to accomplish some amazing things (remember TFYC for Dominica?), and I have confidence that I'll be able to reach out for your support in a couple weeks when I've solidified some things I'm currently working on. Just like our relief efforts for Dominica, I will be personally ensuring that any dollars this group donates will be put to the most efficient possible use, with 0 waste. On to the Dinar! WTI OIL is currently at 54.94 - I don't think I've ever seen an easier chart to read. This is what we call "stabilized": It's been some time since this came up in the news, but I believe it was about 5 months ago I made mention of Saudi Arabia working on playing nice with Iraq again... and what they have to gain by doing so. Saudi Arabia couldn't be bothered to give Iraq the time of day 10 years ago... now, they are changing their tune: Other news that's positive - CBI, IMF, GOI are all active. We are not in one of those vacation-day lulls. Overall, it looks like things should start moving... right in time to hit a mid-September spurt. That's it for now! Stay positive, stay safe, be well everyone, and of course GOOOOO RRRVVVV!!!!! - Adam P.S. It seems fitting to throw one of these in here: Arrrrg!

    Good evening DinarVets and all you beautiful members! (Same happy greeting to you ugly ones, as well ) If you’ve kept up with my recent posts, you know I’m excited about oil - see here, here, here, here… you get the idea. We finished the week still above $60 on the WTI charts... and still going strong. Even though DinarVets is the strongest and longest going community in the world related to the dinar, occasionally I am reminded that not everyone who reads my weekly updates has been here forever, and a lot of people count on me and this site to "fill in the blanks" while we're waiting. I appreciate the reminders! It gives me a good reason to step back and look at the big picture. And as much as the "wait" can be almost debilitating at times... ... this was never going to happen overnight. At least, not overnight on a night that was on the calendar in the past. When it happens, it will certainly look like an "overnight" event to the outsiders and those that missed the boat. BIG PICTURE TIME. There are a lot of moving parts here, but the biggest thing we're waiting on right now is the HCL. There are a bunch of articles and news related to HCL, and I'm even getting some very encouraging private messages from my contacts about the progress, but the bottom line right now is this: HCL has not been concluded at this time. Therefore we have no RV... ... yet. Yet, we have reason to keep hanging on, and if I may be so bold... we have a damn good reason for it. Iraq’s currency price is based on their ability to sell it to other countries, just like any other country with a tradable currency. Their ability to sell their currency is determined by what other countries will pay for it - this is the basic concept of supply and demand. Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, no more and no less. In the currency exchange game, stronger demand for a currency will create a larger market, which pushes the price up. In order for Iraq to raise the "sell" price of their currency, they have to create a strong market for it. If they don't have a strong market, then we could never have a chance of an RV. That is not the case. We DO have a strong market. If Iraq wasn't making progress towards stability and strength, we would have no chance of an RV. That is also not the case. Iraq IS moving in the right direction. They are doing it by solidifying their government and stabilizing their perceived ability to provide a solid expectation of return on investment. That's really all this comes down to, after all. Iraq's ability to raise the value of their currency is based on the perceived ability to provide a solid expectation of return on investment. This is exactly why the value of the Dinar dropped to pennies on the dollar in such a short time when it did. When Iraq was invaded and their government toppled, the world (traders, experts, everyone) had reason to doubt that Iraq would be able to sustain the value of the dinar, and the value of the dinar dropped. End of story. Something extremely predictable happens when a stock or a currency or anything suddenly starts losing value... it causes panic. Herd mentality kicks in, and it sweeps like a tidal wave. People selling to avoid loss are willing to take losses to avoid bigger losses, and the avalanche builds momentum. Sometimes a stock or commodity will be annihilated, or sometimes it will just sink to a level that nobody believed was possible just months before. This happened to the Dinar. The same thing happens on the opposite side, of course. When people see something rising in value, they predictably want to catch that wave and the momentum will build the other way. People see other people making profits and want to join in, and again the herd mentality can push a stock or a currency or anything else that is being traded to levels that it shouldn't actually attain. Eventually the markets will stabilize, as they always do. In Iraq's case, this is exactly why I lean towards a pegged RV rate opposed to a complete free float on the market. It will be easier for them to control a major change if they also control the fluctuation, and they stand to make enough profits on an RV that they will be better served by taking the profits on a fixed spread rather than trying to "catch it at the top". A pegged rate, at least initially, will allow them to control and maintain a higher rate. They are doing all this with their actions in their government, and the price of oil going up at a steady and fairly predictable rate gives them the ability to create a solid path to higher profitability. End result? Everything we’re looking for! Fingers crossed for some HCL news (SOON), and when it happens I'll be sending out that message. GOOO RRRRVVVVV!!!!! - Adam

    Good morning good morning!!! We are a couple days past the presentation of the new (possibly interim) Prime Minister, and my sentiments thus far can be summarized in a word: HAPPY. The abbreviated backstory goes like this: Iraq thrown into dark ages, currency plummets in value. A decade of work later, Iraq is fairly stable and they still have enough black gold to fill a gazillion olympic pools. Corruption remains a problem, citizens tire of the charades, demand change. November 2019, former PM Mahdi resigns. Several unsuitable candidates were presented, we hung in limbo. The new PM was selected late last week. He's had less than a full week to screw it up, and he has not. Seriously - 5 days is plenty of time to drive the bus right off a cliff, and he has not. In fact, he's doing things right. One great example of what's going on in the background - the stuff we don't see on the news - is this thread, where Iran is obviously making a last ditch effort to hold ground. Does anyone think Iran is going to win this ultimatum? I do not. Especially not with Allawi at the helm, who is presumably approved by greater powers than Iran. This is precisely why Iran is making their last ditch, desperate attempt to gain footing... and it looks like a failed attempt from the start. If Iran has any success whatsoever in this attempt, we are going to see it immediately. I can't wait to see this Iranian attempt fall on it's face! Another example? The Budget, which was approved-but-held-and-now-this (back on track!). I'll be candid - Tawfik Allawi was not my "top pick" for the new PM. But, current PM Allawi does have a very solid history of butting heads with Maliki, and that's about as solid of an endorsement as anyone should need. We are standing by. I'm still expecting some significant reports to come of this development, and while we are watching the news feeds for it to come out - here's a discount on VIP. You WANT to be in VIP because when Iraq changes the value of their currency and we all go cash in - VIP here at DinarVets is going to put more cash in your pocket, help you protect those gains, and much much more. Join us here, and use the code "newPM" to get a 25% discount. I'm going to end this post here, but I'm not going far! GOOOOOO RRRRRRVVVVVV!!!!! - Adam P.S. OSI members, click here. P.P.S.

    Good afternoon and Happy Wednesday! What's going on in DinarLand? That's what we ask every week, and thanks to the amazing newshounds here at DinarVets we're able to keep up on the happenings. HUGE to all of our tireless members who filter and sift and read and post it all here! I have my personal contacts that give me a constant feed of information, but you don't need special contacts to stay up to date. The news feeds here on this site have been an incredible resource for many tens of thousands of people, and I personally want to take a minute and thank everyone here that contributes. So - THANKS! Shout out to the current top 4 on the leaderboard: @yota691, @DinarThug, @Butifldrm, and @Pitcher The big news going on right now in Iraq is the impending selection of a Prime Minister. Over the years, we have witnessed a series of Iraqi politicians that were really Iranian puppets - influenced, paid, bribed, or otherwise, but they were not looking out for Iraq. As of last October, there has been a major shift in Iraq. The people protested, rioted, and demanded change. The face of their demands was simply to improve their lives, but the heart of the matter comes down to removing the Iranian factors. This is the main reason there is no Prime Minister in the place of Mahdi already. There were attempts to insert yet another Iranian talking head in the position, and then more attempts, but between the Iraqi's recent protests, and a bit of US and other outside influences, the Iranian factor is being whittled down. The barriers that have kept an RV from happening are being eroded, and quickly. I know, that's not what is in the headlines. It's not on the front pages of any MSM publication, and it's not spelled out that simply in most cases - but that's what is really going on. Where we are today, then, is on the cusp of some serious change. We are staring at the future, shaping itself via badly translated articles and sometimes dodgy guru explanations... but we are there, just the same. Looking back at how many times we've seen great news in Iraq and comparing that to the number of times we've seen an RV come of it tends to make some people negative. I would caution against too much optimism, but I will also caution against the opposite. The facts are right in front of us - we have never seen this kind of change, and it's happening on top of everything else that Iraq has accomplished. Will we see a new Prime Minister this week? Possibly yes! There may be one final attempt to slip in someone with Iranian backing, but that will fall on it's face, and my prediction is that the people are going to get what they want. As that happens, Iran's grip on Iraq is going to be severely weakened, and things are going to happen. Fast. I don't have an RV date to give you. But I do believe that towards the end of this week, we're going to have a reasonable amount of information to use in making such a prediction. And I also think it's going to be extremely favorable. Time will tell if I'm right... and there are some of you who are going to reap some amazing benefits. See you in VIP ================= That's it for the midweek briefing! Be sure to get in the Weekly Powerball Pool, and GOOOOO RRRRRRVVVVVV!!!!! - Adam

    Hey everyone, Happy Saturday! I'm not going to be able to put as much in this update as I wanted, due to some crazy travel snafus in my life, but I still have to get this posted - there's no way I'd be able to sleep tonight with this bouncing around in my head! I've been saying for a couple months now that oil to ~$60 was what I want to see. This is not because $60 is a "magic number", so even though we *almost* hit $60 this week ($59.85 I think!!!), I'm going to state that the oil price is "close enough" and we are officially in the GREEN ZONE on that aspect. A declining price in oil would have made the RV-Button-Pushers pull back. That didn't happen. A sudden spike to $60 would have urged no action, because a sudden pullback would have been expected. That didn't happen either! What we have been seeing in the price of oil is a steady climb, very controlled and consistent, towards the $60 mark. Keep in mind that the OPEC oil production limitation agreement that virtually every OPEC country/member has signed onto, with the exception of Iraq, is largely responsible for this controlled growth. (Without a doubt, some of you bean counter number crunching over-analyzers will have something to say about that... I'm speaking in general. There's no need to get into micro details at this time!) Iraq is playing along as a supporting cheerleader to the oil reduction plan, just as we suspected they would, but they have never specifically committed to the reductions in production that OPEC is conducting at this time. That means they have nothing stopping them from a sudden ramp-up in production and sales to generate a large amount of cash, while the rest of the major oil producing nations will need to at least prepare a diplomatic speech before they catch up, if they even choose to do so. We all know that it won't just be us little investors and Iraq that benefits from a change in the Iraqi Dinar. Every country that has physical dinar in their reserves, or any kind of trade alliance with Iraq, will also benefit. That's one piece of the puzzle, and an important one, but what's even more important is the overall picture... which just keeps getting better and better. Iraq's reserves reporting positive news: Iraq's Prime Minister Mahdi continues to be well received: There are a couple more items I want to talk about, but this update is already extremely late so I'm just going to get it posted and follow up tomorrow or Monday with the rest. Before I click submit here... the summary is simple: Iraq could not ask for a better scenario under which to increase the value of their currency. And to that I say.... GOOOOO RRRRVVVVVVV!!!! More to come. - Adam

    Good morning good morning and happy 24th of July! I posed a question last week, regarding the budget and how "necessary" it is to change the value on the currency. Follow up... let's say the Department of Lawn Fertilization has 1 million IQD allocated to it. That's approximately $1000 (USD). With an RV of 1:1 with the US dollar, the Lawn Fertilization Department now has 1 million USD, which is probably overfunded at that rate and wouldn't make sense, right? I see this playing out one of two ways, and only one really stands a chance... 1. The previous budget stands, leaving a majority of departments overfunded to the point they have a surplus for many years. 2. Immediately following the announcement of the rate change, a decree is issued stating that the previous US Dollar amount allocated to the Departments is still being used, and Parliament gets to work with a different mindset on the next budget. Iraq is currently operating on a budget fit for a pauper, even through by rights Iraq should be one of the wealthiest nations in the world. Iraq has, in the past, operated on budgets and status befitting their actual situation - that situation being one of the wealthiest nations in the world. This is such a basic and fundamental concept that it doesn't even need to be explained in detail. The natural question most of us have at that point is something like this: "When the rate changes, how is the Department of Lawn Fertilization (and every other Department) going to be happy with $1000 while there's obviously more money available? Won't this cause immediate civil unrest, throwing the country into chaos again, and immediately devalue the dinar again?" That would indeed be a problem! There's an easy solution: All Departments get an immediate credit, or "loan", equal to their portion of the budget X the RV rate. If it's a 10X RV, then the Lawn Fertilization gets access to 10X their original budgeted amount, to be reconciled and adjusted prior to the next Budget. The list of Departments that need to be accounted for is not so long that this would cause any problems. The Departments having access to a greater amount will curb excess spending and abuse... the Department of Lawn Fertilization may not need 10X, so as they utilize their "credit", a cap can be applied to individual Departments throughout the remainder of the budget year. The People who hold physical Dinar simply benefit by the increase in value, just like we will. A new printed currency comes out within weeks or even days of the rate change, and we're all aware that the new notes are ready to be printed, if not already printed and being held for distribution. Iraq is currently in the final stages of preparation to return to their previous status in the world. They are not a country that has been in poverty for centuries... the are barely over a decade into their current situation. They have had a short setback in their financial situation, but at their core they are a rich country and this is not a huge mental shift for them to return to prosperity. The budget, in my opinion, is not something that will hold them back. A few strokes of the pen and some clicks of a mouse and the Budget is adjusted... bada boom, bada bing. Easy peasy lemon squeezy, no matter how they decide to handle it. It's not a complicated path. @presence made a fantastic post in last week's thread - I think it's worth repeating: "Theres been tremendous progress since the elimination of the dasholes (despite the lack of elimination of a former PM.). SWIFT codes and.KPMG werent even a thiught a decade ago, nor was president Trump. I mention the latter because a proper 'deal' could and would eliminate the entire US debt - which is possible mathematically and would be structurally sound. I find it interesting that Trump.made a relevant reference in the news this week; while referring to the fact that the Iranian fiasco setup by Obama (Aka Valerie Jared) was only supposed to be 5 years in duration, he stated that agreements should be much longer when working with countries- in excess of 50 years in length. I recall reading an article prior to his election in which he said we should just take the oil from Iraq for what we've done for them; I'm sure Iraq and all other nations involved would agree that a lengthy deal.would be and is preferable. Recent events (just to name a few) such as the recent visit - and followup meeting just yesterday- of KRG with Baghdad, public comments regarding the completion of article 140, Mahdi's visit to the White House on or about the 15th of July, the yet to be released statement and conclusion by the IMF (I'm pretty sure we would've heard something by now if their summation was negative), the stability and strength of the IQD's market rate and a sustained fluctuation of less than 2%, stability and duration of the current price of oil, the development of digital technology and the coordination between NASD.and the Iraqi stock exchange, the recent "Fire Drill" at the IQD, continued unrest and public demonstrations by the Iraqi citizens - all point in the direction that a positive change in rate of the IQD is coming - this year (I personally won't be surprised if it comes by Aug. 2nd.) The most encouraging thing I left out are previous comments from the CBI that state a change in rate was supposed to have aleeady happened -years ago- and that it didn't due to problems in Iraq that have since been resolved- which further proves the current state of stability and security in Iraq. Go RV!!!" I don't know how much more I can add to that! Nice post, @presence One more thought before I wrap this up - a lot of our news threads here have exceeded thousands of posts. Those threads will be locked (mods, please help me out here) in an effort to bring the most current news to the attention of those of us interested in reading. If you see a locked thread in the news sections, this does not mean we don't want to continue the conversation! It just means it's time to start a new thread on the topic. Have a fantastic day, everyone! GOOOOO RRRRVVVVVVV!!!! - Adam

    Happy Wednesday all! My apologies in advance - this update will be kind of shorthand. 'Tis the season for tidying up and staying busy outside before the weather gets too uncomfortable! It's been a while since I gave a shout out to the Weekly Powerballs, so let's get that out of the way first: Bitcoin - Are we at the bottom? I've seen a lot of comments, both here and in the other groups I read and participate in, regarding cryptocurrencies. BTC at it's current price of $8,200 is still more than double where it started 2019. The eccentric and entertaining John McAfee's prediction of $1,000,000 per BTC by end of 2020 doesn't seem likely (too bad for his junk!), but the big picture is still extremely positive for BTC as many positive avenues exist. HODL to the moon! That's still my motto. GOLD - $1500 at the moment. Who currently gives the best price for physical gold? I've never actually sold any of my gold, I've only bought - but I might sell a chunk and buy BTC, then sell the BTC at 10,000 and buy the gold back. Just for fun. OIL - currently WTI at $52. Stable enough, no worries there. Iraq and China was a big story last week, and it still is, even though it's out of the limelight a little. There was some discussion on the topic of how Iraq will pay China. Some of the articles suggest Iraq will pay with oil, while others state it will be financed by oil... the exact method doesn't matter. What is important to understand is that Iraq has oil. That's it. Whether they barter directly for oil or not is kind of irrelevant. China probably doesn't give a hoot either way, because they know exactly what we know - Iraq is rich with oil, Iraq will not be an impoverished land with no way to pay their debts, and Iraq has every ability to pay their debts... because of oil. It's no surprise that oil is mentioned in almost all of these articles: I wish I had a date to put out here, but you all know by now I won't do that. It sure does look promising, though! Iraq has an RV button to push. I have a text message to send, and a lot of plans in place for our Post-RV activities. Standing by. - Adam

    Happy Wednesday, DinarVets! Here we are, the week before Thanksgiving. To me, "Thanksgiving" is more than just the day in late November when we all gather around with our families and eat turkey and candied yams and green bean casserole and all kinds of other delicious foods... the word "thanksgiving" itself is actually first defined as "the expression of gratitude, especially to God." Personally, I don't care what God you love, or if you don't even subscribe to a religion. I have my own beliefs, and they match some of yours. They don't match others... but we should all agree that it is good to "give thanks", to be appreciative for the blessings that we have, and to find reasons to be happy with life. I'm thankful for this community, the many friendships that have been made here, and I'm thankful for hope. Turkey and pie are just bonuses. (Dark meat for me, please! And keep the celery out of the stuffing, you monster! ) Iraq is in a fantastic spot right now. YES, they have had a rough 6 weeks or so. The people have been demanding change, and it looks like they are getting it. The GOI is making real changes to their government structure, Parliament is discussing some necessary actions to reduce corruption, restructure their systems, and make a final push towards recapturing their glory days. I'm sure a lot of people have given up on Iraq recently. Quite honestly - this is good for those of us that have chosen to hang in there. We can draw a very significant parallel between bitcoin and the Iraqi dinar here - it is estimated that 4-5 million bitcoins have been lost forever. I know I personally lost quite a few on an old hard drive, and others have lost even more. I had some on exchanges that went under, and some I just lost the key to. No matter what happened to them, they are gone forever, which raises the value of those remaining to be traded. The same goes for Iraqi dinar - with every "loss" of outside investors, Iraq's obligation to the world decreases, and makes it easier for them to come out with a higher value. The saying goes, "it's always darkest before the dawn". Iraq has seen some dark times. But dawn IS coming... I'm hanging in there, and I'm thankful that you are as well. Talk soon! And be on the lookout for some Black Friday/Cyber Monday specials around here... they may be coming at a really good time for you. - Adam

    Good afternoon DinarVets! This is a general update regarding last weeks chat. The real short story is this: Iraq is in a sweet spot right now, VIP is good, you should join here, and today is the last day to save money using coupon code "flash". I posed a question in the last update about Panamas roadways, and it caused a little bit of confusion. (Spoiler alert…. The answer was “Ecuador”. ) Sometimes I forget that not everyone travels the world like I do, and when I reference things that aren’t common knowledge, some of you rightfully ask why I said what I said… for example, why would I talk about Panama when this is a Dinar site?! It’s a completely understandable question. I wanted to answer it, so I started writing. The words were flowing and before I knew it... I had written about 5000 words related to Iraq and Panama, but I had also touched on China, Germany, Malta, and four (4!!!) other countries - and I was just getting started. I thought to myself, "Jeez, Adam, you better cut some of this out - nobody wants to read a dang novel!" It was challenging. "Cutting words out" is a tough thing to do when you want to explain a complex (yet simple) subject, but I did my best. I chopped it up and cut a lot out and the following is what I am going to share this fine day. We will start with a short explanation on the Panama reference. Iraq is meeting with China this week, and China may be stepping in to develop some infrastructure in Iraq. Here in the US of A, the majority of our roads are taken care of by the US government. Sure, a lot of the work is done by individual companies, but those companies are primarily US companies. The taxpayers here pay for the roads, and that tax money pays the workers. The US has a large workforce (supply of money via tax slavery) and endless resources thanks to our fiat currency, but let's not get too far off track - let's discuss the roads. Some roadways have tolls, which generate income for the state that the roadways are in, supposedly to take a burden off of the taxpayers… I say “supposedly”, because Illinois comes to mind. You know, the state with a city holding the strictest gun laws yet has one of the highest gun crime rates, one of the highest tax rates in the country yet they still have a ridiculous amount of tolls, and ohhhh boy I could get on a rant here about how inefficient government can be, but I’ll save that for a Post RV gathering over drinks. Panama is a small country that thrives on outside money. Their roads are important, and there are tolls there, but the Panama government (rightfully so) doesn’t focus on their roads. They are outsourced…. Ecuador had the majority of the work on the major roadways when I was there last, and they also collected the toll money. Pretty sweet deal for Ecuador, since they don’t have a Canal to pull money from. It was also pretty smart of Panama. They pull in huge revenue from the Canal, but they make another substantial portion of their income from their Corporate services. They don’t need to waste their resources on the roadways when they are making tons of cash on their other assets… … Iraq is in the same situation. They have a major asset in their OIL, and it makes sense for them to potentially let China come in and handle things like roadways and other infrastructure. This China thing could be a MAJOR jump ahead for Iraq if it’s done right. China isn’t new to this game. Neither is Iraq. The point above was pretty simple, and the big picture is also simple, if you’re looking for it. Here’s a fact that this post, and my last weekly update, centers on: I have seen a major opportunity in the value of the Iraqi Dinar for a long time. Many of you do as well. As a community we have weathered a lot of delays, but that doesn’t take away from the potential. The Dinar is going to raise in value. It’s simply a matter of “when” and “how much”. ============= When the Dinar increases in value there will be profits, and with profits come liabilities. I’ve personally put more hours than I can count into the tasks of finding the best ways to prepare for this event, securing the best possible options for returns on the initial increase in value (RV), and also preparing for the protection of those gains. If you’re in the VIP group when the RV is announced, you will benefit from the best exchange rate and get access to Post-RV options that will enable you to continue maximizing your benefits. We also have a thing here called “OSI”, which is basically VIP on steroids (without the side effects :lol:) It’s taken a lot of legwork to get VIP and OSI in place, entailing a lot of frequent flyer miles, because some things simply can’t be done with Google alone. Some things require a handshake and meeting people in person to accomplish. I’ve done that, and if you’re in VIP, you are supporting the work and you will share the benefits. Join here: https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ ============= Back to the Panama thing, and how it relates to Iraq, China, and why we’re here in the first place. Part of my “job” here is to dig into the facts regarding the Dinar, but the majority of my work is about maximizing the returns after the RV party and the exchange back to USD. I’m interested in preserving the profits, and that takes work. The nuts and bolts of the best wealth management strategies aren’t free, but we have them in VIP/OSI. Throughout this journey I’ve met with people I won’t name, my passport has been stamped in some pretty incredible locations, and although many of those locations were key to my personal contacts in the Dinar world - some of those trips resulted in other kinds of information, which is why I related Panama to Iraq. Panama doesn’t have OIL. What Panama DOES have is that passageway. A key to commerce. A large influence on world trade, even though Panama doesn’t produce a major good that can’t be made elsewhere. What Panama does do is exist despite the fact that they do not export oil or really anything else we can feel, touch, or hold in our hands. This puts them in a neat position in the world, and in spite of their recent political and financial drama - Panama is still a significant business center of the world. Iraq also has a neat position in the world, and I think we all know what that is. And now I hope you can understand how they could easily use China to help them focus on their true assets, and make some major moves forward. This could all be happening in the next week or so. It’s going to happen quickly when it does, and only you can be sure YOU are prepared. The FLASH SALE ends today. Use discount coupon “flash” to get in VIP, and reap the benefits, at a cheaper price than normal. In a nutshell.... GO RV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy your day, friends! - Adam P.S. Most of you understand how VIP here works. When the Dinar revalues, the VIP group here is going to benefit from a higher exchange rate. It may not be a huge number higher, but it will definitely cover the cost of VIP. More importantly, being in VIP is going to give you opportunities to increase the gain. Why stop at a simple exchange?! Leverage your good fortune, and turn a nice profit into something that can benefit your heirs for generations to come… or just blow it all on a few luxury items and be a statistic. The choice is yours, of course. Heck… even if you decide not to utilize the tools and easy programs we have in place, you can at least say you supported the site as a VIP member. Join us here: https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ P.P.S. If for any reason you don't get more on your RV exchange than you spent on VIP fees, I will refund every penny. That's a solid iron clad guarantee that I give to you. In other words... you have nothing to lose. See you in VIP. P.P.P.S. Seriously - China building roads or other essential things in Iraq... it's just the tip of the iceberg. It's a tiny piece of the complex picture that makes it possible for Iraq to increase the value of their currency. I'm giddy about this and I really wanted to share a post that was 10X longer than this!!! Comment away, because I have a lot more to say about it. THIS IS GOOD STUFF!!!!!

    GOOD afternoon, all! Quick note about the drone attacks on the Saudis - OIL is a pivotal issue in the Iraqi Dinar rate. It's no surprise that the recent events caused a flurry of commotion in the Dinar world. Oil speculation went wild for a couple minutes (ok, days), but currently stabilized at $59... sounds like the above statements from Saudi sources are believed by the world, and therefore they are true. (Think about that, if you have to! ) Perhaps more worthy of our attention right now is the deal with China. Before I go into this, let's consider a different country. I'm talking about Panama. I learned a couple things about that country, and the way money flows through it, from my work in Asset Protection and my travels to Panama to explore options there. (I've talked extensively about this in VIP/OSI.) Don't worry, I'm not getting sidetracked here. This is VERY relevant to Iraq, Iraq's currency, and the value of Iraq's currency. Does anyone here know who builds and maintains the roads in Panama? Hint... it's not Panama. More importantly, do you know who collects the moneys for the tolls on the highways in Panama? Once again... it's not Panama. Panama cares not for the large amounts of money being spent on, and earned by, the roadways there. The roadways are very important! But they are not Panama's bread and butter... so they outsource it. Kind of like what Iraq may be doing with China. Abdul Mahdi is spending a week, with an entourage, on this. Check it out: China does more than just steal our patents and influence the forex with their currency manipulation. China has the ability to dump loads of money into Iraq's infrastructure, taking significant weight off of the Iraqis in that regard, which would free up Iraq's resources (time/people/government/etc) to focus on their actual bread and butter. China won't be doing this for free... in fact, I can foresee Iraq becoming so indebted to China over this that they are forced to raise the value of their currency just to cover the debt that they will willingly incur from China in order to fast-track their future. Iraq then officially enters the currency manipulation game, just to keep up with China, and that just tickles me pink! Who wins if this happens? Everyone. China wins. Iraq wins. We win. This is a clear path to Iraq becoming even stronger, with a stronger currency, and the rest is sort of irrelevant. Pretty neat stuff. Discuss below, and GOOOO RRRRVVVVVV!!!! - Adam

    Wednesday Wednesday Wednesday! Hello everyone, thanks for tuning in. Sometimes I can hardly wait to get to work on the weekly update - and most of those times, life just gets in the way. Like this week The following was posted Friday (cheers @yota691), and it’s the start of the news I recently mentioned I want to see: The topic at hand is quiet simple - OIL. The above article (and the handful of posts that followed it) weren’t necessarily about the “price” of oil, but the contents are certainly affected by the price of oil. Let’s dive into that a little - earlier this year, I personally set a target of $60 (WTI) that I felt was necessary before Iraq would feel confident enough to start moving on a significant change in the exchange rate. (“RV” is short for “ReValuation”, which will be a significant change in the exchange rate… for those of you new to the situation ) We saw almost no HCL news prior to the $60 mark, and then it started to come out in the news. That meant the Iraqi Parliament was working on items that are necessary to accomplish a finalization, and that is a key component to the RV. Back to OIL, the WTI, and the news articles that correlate… take a peek at this super high-tech graphic: This WTI chart shows the approximate time WTI hit $60, and we know that OIL news had been scarce in the time prior to that. Articles related to HCL started popping up. The price of OIL actually went up too high, in my opinion, because once it dropped off - so did the news articles related to HCL. A lot of things contribute to the price of OIL, the world economy, and everything else that can have an impact on when Iraq decides to raise the value - this is just one of those things, but I believe it is a major component. Now that we’re seeing a bit of stability return, and the price resuming a possible upward trend, we have the previous articles and also this: Lots of people are saying September is looking good. I am leaning toward agreeing. Time, and hopefully not much of it, will tell. Discuss below - feel free to add your - Adam

    Tariffs on China. Pretty sure Trump said he would. Iran mucking up the world news. Despite the above, OIL (WTI) refuses to go below $60. Uber going public... this should be interesting! Bezos... to the moon! (Pretty sure that's going to be an upgrade from your normal Prime membership.) Bitcoin refused to fall below $5000, in fact it topped $6000, Fidelity steps up again, and the SEC will give a major green light one of these days. All that, and more! Good morning everyone! My apologies for being absent a few days this last week. I had some personal matters to tend to, and they took me away from the updates I wanted to do. Don't think for a minute I wasn't on top of things! I just wasn't able to get my regular posts here done. Ramadan is officially under way, and for once in this wild ride... I'm very pleased to see how things are moving. OF COURSE there are going to be snippets about things being pushed back to outside of Ramadan, but we're not even a week in and we are already seeing a difference. Case in point... start here and read the next few articles. Not only are Parliament meetings continuing as of tomorrow (Saturday), but we're finally talking about OIL! OIL has been missing from the news over the last couple months, and I was expecting it to resurface shortly. It is unusual, but not surprising, to see it popping up now. I say it's not surprising because even though it's Ramadan, the timing is right. This time around, they may just surprise us. More later. - Adam

    Are we there yet?!?!! Good morning all! Lots of hype going on right now. That tends to bring out the best AND the worst in this Dinar adventure, so I want to address it real quick. Here's a simple truth: There is always going to be "hype". That does NOT mean there is no legitimate opportunity here. It's like someone passionately exclaiming, "Usain Bolt (the fastest man in the world) could beat a Corvette in a race!" Is that statement factual? No, it's a bit of an exaggeration. But is Usain Bolt still incredibly fast? YES! And while he's probably not going to outpace a vehicle with a top speed of over 200MPH, that doesn't take away from the fact that he holds an incredible record. The Iraqi Dinar is very similar. We currently have a bit of garbage to sift through as we dig into the "facts". There will always be attention seeking "gurus" making crazy claims about people standing in line to cash in or getting top secret calls from the "Head of International Crystal Ball Readers Association". These delusional characters may even believe the stuff they say, but does that make Usain Bolt any slower? Sure doesn't! And it also doesn't make the opportunity for the Dinar any less, either. If you were around the Dinar world before Chapter 7 was lifted, an event that was arguably one of the most important events related to Iraq in recent history, you'll remember that things got VERY exciting before that happened. It was not a guarantee that Chapter 7 would get lifted... in fact, it was questionable if it would actually happen, and very much a surprise to many. Even without absolute confirmation of this very important event that was about to transpire, and even though many of the news stations and media and all of the people "in the know" didn't give a warning... the dinar world had a "feeling" that something was about to happen. The rumor mills started cranking up, "reports" of people standing in line in Reno and Vegas and other "select" locations were flying around like monkeys at a circus, and the activity on many websites was through the roof. Did we have an RV at that time? Obviously not. And nobody cashed in, not in Reno or anywhere else... at least, not at the $3+ rate. BUT, did something major happen? YES. That's where we seem to be right now. This is the time of year that many major milestones have been reached in Iraq. NOW is the time I'm expecting to see something major... maybe HCL, maybe something else, and very possibly a rate change. The tension is growing, and it shows in many ways... like how your animals know a storm is coming, when the weatherperson said "10% chance of rain", and then the neighbors barn and cows get taken away in a tornado. Fido knew. Did you listen? You might want to get in VIP, now. Join here. Bring on the twisters!

    Good Morning DinarVets! It seems we are in an interesting situation right now. I've been watching the news shift directions slightly... not in an opposing way, just a shift. In the past, we've had some key things happen around mid-year. Major items, like Chapter 7, for example. The "shift" in the news that I'm seeing is - and I say this with a little bit of reservation, because I'm not substituting my intuition for an actual crystal ball - it is encouraging, in a way that may be signaling another big announcement in the middle of the year. Are you in VIP yet? Join here. I'm expecting a revaluation of the Iraqi Dinar to be preceded by a bit of silence... and we do have that right now. Don't get me wrong, we have a lot of encouraging articles to read right now, but the subtle shift in tone... It's hard to explain, but take a look at this comment and the posts that follow: Things happen slowly in Iraq. We know this. It was about 3 months ago when I posted that original link, and starting with the comment I just linked to, the discerning person can see how the articles are starting to focus on the higher level agreements. This is the fine tuning, and the polishing. That's what I'm seeing happening right now... and it's all coming full circle, about 3-6 months after the last big round of "regular" news. This just happens to fall in place perfectly, if you ask me. I'm on the fence about Ramadan this year - it might not be as quiet as it has been in the past. I'm hoping to find some more clues, or get some "boots on the ground" feedback over the next couple days. With that in mind, I'll be making another post to further explain my stance. Expect it Friday or Saturday, unless there's an RV announcement before then. Make sure you're in VIP, either way! That's it for this morning - more to come. - Adam

    Good morning and happy Wednesday, to all in Dinarland and everywhere! WOW. What an end to 2019, and what a start to 2020! 2019 ended in Iraq with a flurry of activity. The Prime Minister resigned, the Iraqi President threatened to do the same. There were major protests, huge shifts in the landscape, and a lot of uncertainty. There is so much news and activity right now that it's almost impossible to keep up! This is exactly the type of situation where big things happen, but the world is so busy watching the "news" that it just slips under the radar. The uncertainty continues with the current situation regarding Iraq, largely because of the situation with their neighbor Iran. I'll give my opinions on the situation, but this is a fluid situation - things change fast. Also, some of these are my personal opinions - you don't have to like them, or agree with them. You are entitled to your wrong opinion. Like it or not, the United States just influenced the timing and chances of a near future revalue on the Iraqi currency... but I don't believe the current events have altered the destination at all. In fact, the attack on Iranian terrorist Suleimani - justified or not - is likely in favor of a quicker path to an RV. I said that the protests would take about 6 weeks to wrap up. I was a little short on the timeline, but not much - and they did wrap up. This situation is a continuation, and very similar - it is going to be a bumpy ride, but it won't last forever. When it's over, I believe we will be in a far more favorable position to see the Iraqi currency skyrocket. Yes, I said that word: Skyrocket. The recent protests in Iraq, which started officially at the beginning of October, were largely instigated by the people of Iraq being fed up with the Government of Iraq's then current progress, which was largely influenced by Iran. The "read-between-the-lines" message was pretty simple: "Get Iran out of our country and do something good for us!" Iraq has made official announcements that they want all foreign troops out. The announcement is non-binding for the United States, and there is talk this morning that sanctions may be imposed on Iraq if they don't cooperate with our goal of controlling the Iranian terror machine. Yes, I that too: The Iranian terror machine. War isn't something that anyone should take lightly. The political rhetoric surrounding any serious situation, on the other hand... I tend to laugh that stuff off. For example, the idea that Trump should have gotten approval from Congress prior to sending Soleimani to meet his virgins... are you kidding me?! I suppose he should have followed that with a press conference announcing the attack in advance, and then apologize with a planeload of cash. Right? Anyway... we are indeed in the middle of a very tense and hectic time. I'm sure we are going to see all kinds of Chicken Little Syndrome (I'm calling it "CLS" from now on), we're going to have questions and self doubt and panic... buckle up, hang tight, and be ready. Kind of like what I'm doing, preparing for the comments I'm sure I'll get in response to this Weekly. On another note... my football team is in the playoffs. And Tom Brady isn't. GOOO RRRVVVV!!!!! - Adam P.S. Are you in the weekly Powerball pool? P.P.S. For anyone suffering from CLS, here's some medication:

    Hey hey all! I tagged this post as a "Weekly" even though there have been more than one "Weekly" lately, and even though it's a holiday week... there is probably going to be more than one this week as well. In the last update, I talked a bit about the upcoming change in leadership in Iraq. I'll recap, because it's important and even fun at this point with the solid stream of good news flying our way! Back in early October 2019, the people of Iraq finally had enough. If you were a member of that group, you'd probably feel the same way! Especially knowing as we do that your country is capable of increasing your spending power in a major way, and the only thing keeping you impoverished was a bunch of corrupt bureaucrats stealing your money... ... following those protests, or during them, the most recent Prime Minister (Mahdi) resigned. By law, there was a period of time to appoint the next leader. What is being said over and over, in many different ways, is that it is well known by all involved in the process of appointing the next Prime Minister that it must be a candidate who will be accepted by all political parties, and also the people. In fact, "most importantly, the people." This puts a very bright light not only on who they appoint, but also what happens in the very near future. I know I'm not the only one who sees this! The people of Iraq have forced a change in the government, because they were not happy with what was going on. And unless the next person gives them something good, and fast, they will be rioting again. I also mentioned in my last update that things should be happening fairly quickly. That update was a mere 5 days ago, and instead of the usual weeks or months of delays, we are seeing a different Iraq. I'm just going to snag a bunch of excerpts from a hot thread: This from an interview with Baghdad Today referring to President Barham Salih: The following of Tawfik Allawi: Allawi is reported, among other things, to have not liked Maliki: And Allawi himself says this: He says this knowing full well that if he doesn't appease the people, he will be next on the chopping block. He says this knowing that if he doesn't make the people happy - they will be rioting again. It really appears that the people are pushing the cart now, instead of being led like sheep. The people aren't going to wait long. They want change, and they want it fast. I'll gladly take that change, regardless of who brings it... and it's looking pretty obvious that someone is going to have to bring it. Or else. Today or tomorrow we should have an announcement on who is going to take the responsibility for that change... it may be a surprisingly great Christmas after all! ================ / / =============== You have TWO DAYS left to take advantage of the discount on VIP!

    Good morning all! Today is Sunday, 24th of November 2019. I made a mention this week about Iraq being in a good place - my optimism continues. Before I get into that, however, I also mentioned Black Friday specials coming... ... those start NOW! Coupon code "go2019rv" is good for 25% off any VIP package for the entire week. Apply the code after you choose your VIP package here. This will work if you are already VIP and want to upgrade to Platinum (Lifetime), or if you just want to save some money and extend another 3 months or more. Back to Iraq: Every week, I read thousands of posts made by the members here on DinarVets. This last week, I read one that hit me right in the chest. (Boom. Right there.) It read like this: As I reflected on those words, I can't help but think how true it is. And how obvious! Iraq has made tons of progress. They were thrown into a dark hole when Saddam Hussein was removed. Their currency plummeted from a high value down to a lowly scrap, and it barely retained scrap value at one time. Then the country began to rebuild, with the help of outside forces (which were necessary, since they had lost their right to militarily protect themselves and much more), and eventually the world recognized their progress with the official lifting of Chapter 7 sanctions. More progress has been made, hurdles have been cleared, and Iraq is nowhere near what it was in 2003. All along the path of this rebuilding, we've been watching and waiting for a major change. Not that the change from 4000:1 to the current 1190:1 isn't a "major change"! That's a big deal, and kudos to them for the commendable progress since they fell from financial grace, but it's not the "major" change they are capable of. It's not "the" change we are waiting for. It's not the change that we know is coming. As we look back on the last decade plus, with the benefit of hindsight, it's easy to see how and why they haven't RV'd yet. It's quite simple, really: Political players and parties have been able to manipulate the status quo, and profit from it. I would say it's fair to write down as fact that there are players in this situation that have worked specifically against the RV... because they were making money on the system as it was, and why would they change that?! You can name the "bad guys" just as easy as I can, so I won't bore you with a list and an hour of finger pointing. Although tremendous ground has been covered in Iraq's journey back to prosperity, there have been people and groups that had a vested interest in seeing Iraq maintain the status quo (no RV), and keep the people impoverished. Hope is not lost, though. Far from it, in fact! The players and groups that have an interest in keeping the exchange rate as it is are not a huge group. The "bad" part of the Government of Iraq isn't the majority... it's a small number, an amount that is surmountable. And it appears that change is happening now. Since early October, there have been serious protests in Iraq, and the pressure has resulted in Iraq moving towards some changes that (in hindsight) have been necessary this whole time. A few of the "bad guys" aren't going to be happy, and they will put up some resistance still, but they will fall to the side and Iraq's currency will not stay in the "XXXX:1" range. The question has always been "when", not "if". Over the recent years, Iraq has been at a tipping point. SO CLOSE, all the time! In hindsight, what was needed is obvious. And it's happening right now. ============================ Happy Thanksgiving week, everyone! When the RV is announced, and it will be announced at some point, I have always felt like it would take the world by surprise. They aren't going to give a "heads up", they aren't going to do anything to attract currency speculators. It's going to happen suddenly, and when it is announced, it will be too late to buy in. Too late to sign up for VIP. Too late to benefit. I doubt "this week" is when we will see the RV announced, but that may be exactly why it IS announced this week! Either way, if you're not in VIP when it's announced, you will NEVER be able to get in. The doors, and your opportunity, close immediately when the RV is announced. I'll send out an email later this week with some info on VIP for those of you who don't already know "why" you want to be VIP. (You do!)

    Happy Wednesday, dinarvets! I'm in the middle of a blizzard (ok, it's just snowing a little) and I've got a bajillion fires to put out here at home, so this one will be quick! The good news is that I see lots of good reasons to come back with more updates before next Wednesday. In fact, I made a detour to buy a lottery ticket this morning - that's how good I feel about the near future! (Get in the lotto pool here.) It looks like the protest situation is coming to a head, all while budgetary and other government issues are also moving forward. The US is putting pressure on Iraq to do something about the protests, which really means the US is putting pressure on Iraq to get their butts in gear. This article I posted states that the Iraqis are grumbling about "US interference", but the fact of the matter is this: if the US is putting pressure on them, they are going to do something. And they are going to do something that moves Iraq in the direction we want, and it's not going to drag out forever. Personally, I see that as a positive sign and I'm looking forward to the next week. Here's some evidence of what I'm hearing that has me feeling positive... despite the blustering about not wanting US interference, the news says they are doing exactly what we want. Take a look at this and the 12 posts that immediately follow it: We are looking at a positive situation, friends. I'll be back with more as it develops - hopefully even before the weekend, if the rumors I'm hearing are correct. This can all come to a head very quickly. - Adam

    So.......they have had meetings and discussions with CBI. This must be their aspirations ~ to have exchange rate higher than USD. We know this..... Yep.....but not anymore. Inflations is at all time low now.... There were ready then, they sure are ready now... Why tell us this if that's not the direction. This announcement comes from Finance Committee......~ i think this is part of the process to give notice to the public of what's coming ('suddenly'). Thru previous & various articles, the public have been educated and have been made aware of the project to delete the zeros. Now is the time (justifications) to reintroduce the coins. Great timing. FML gazetted, draft budget discussions (in parliament) in Sept, reconstructions agreements signed......new CBI governor. Alaq going to AMF in Sept......and so many other positivities. Footnotes: The dinar we hold was introduced (officially) on Oct.15, 2003, fully implemented Jan 2004. All jmo......

    Good morning all! It's currently Wednesday July 10 Thursday July 11, and IF all goes well - I'll get this posted before my day gets out of control! Back in the forefront of ReValuation (RV) news... HCL. We've made it through Ramadan, budgeting, elections, and a whole slew of other issues. All of them, although lengthy at times, have sailed successfully through the turbulent waters and left us with a final component: HCL. Good news for this morning? It's actually on the horizon. It's being talked about, and I'm predicting we'll see more of this very shortly. For example: Adding fuel to the HCL fire: WTI just crossed $60 again, and those of us watching the OIL tickers recently are well aware of how stable OIL is right now. Those of us pairing that information with the current and ongoing situation in Iraq understand how important OIL is to Iraq's ability to RV. And in case anyone needed some reassurance... ... it's going as perfect as we could hope for. There will never be an absolute perfect set of circumstances under which Iraq "can" or "should" or "must" change the value of their currency. I see a fair amount of comments from people stating something like "Oh, Iraq will never RV unless X happens, or until Y is implemented", etc etc... ... that is simply not true. There is NO absolute "must" for Iraq. They can change the rate today. Or yesterday, or tomorrow. They can do it without any further progress, without any permission from anyone or anything, and all the speculation in the world won't give us an exact date or a precise set of circumstances. The situation we find ourselves in today, at this very moment, is "good enough". Personally, I'm on standby for an incredible event. A solid resolution on the oil and gas law (HCL) will mean "no turning back", but just the same - it's not a necessity. Pretty darn exciting, if you ask me. That's it for the Weekly summary - there's a lot going on right now, but I like to keep these Weekly posts "to the point". GOOOOO RRRRVVVVVV!!!! - Adam PS. Side note! I use a LOT of news sources to keep abreast of the latest happenings, not only in Iraq but just "in general".

    Good afternoon all! We're currently in the midst of some significant happenings right now. It's almost coming too fast to keep on top of things, so let's just recap the current situation. Hopefully you caught my last update on Saturday (posted here), but I'll summarize that real quick as well - EVERYTHING oil related is cruising along at a good clip and in the right direction. As of that last post, we had *almost* hit the $60 mark. As I write this today, we have touched $60 a couple times this week. That by itself is validation for what I was predicting over the last couple months, but the real important part is the manner it is happening. Nice and steady, just how we want it.... for now. Next on the agenda is most likely a continued rise towards $70, but that's not a "new goalpost" by any means. Rather, I'm expecting to see some solid HCL news, and a potential focus on the HCL, with the RV bubbling just below the surface of the news. I think the most important thing to understand at this time is that they will not give us a major heads up on this plan. Our only clues are going to be: Stability in the GOI, which we have. Solid news on HCL, or an actual passed HCL bill, which is reasonable to expect under the current situation. Very related to HCL is this: In a nutshell, the Kurdish oil production is higher than the anticipated amount, and the Kurds are probably 100% entitled to withhold the additional production since their portion of the budget was negotiated with 250,000 bpd in mind. Remember what I said in my last update, about Iraq's ability to ramp up production quickly? Yep! That's still on the table! What does this mean to us? In my opinion, this has great potential. The Kurds have a solid argument, and the Baghdad side now has a LOT of motivation to get busy negotiating a profit sharing agreement. That’s exactly what the HCL is. The Kurds will also be motivated to get this moving, as they probably stand to catch a larger portion of the budget in addition to a better HCL deal. A couple years ago when they were talking about a secession, with the Kurds forming their own country - remember that? I had heard at the time from my experts that there was no real chance of that happening, but they were setting the stage for a stronger position in the big picture. That is EXACTLY what this ties into, and the HCL is what puts a pretty little bow on this whole deal. Pretty exciting stuff! I'll get this posted and open to comments before the day gets any later. I want to wish everyone a fantastic weekend, and of course GOOO RRRRVVVVV!!!! - Adam

    Hey hey it's Wednesdayyyyy! It will be afternoon by the time I get this posted, so - Good Afternoon, or evening, wherever you may be! This was a strange week for me - I almost got the Weekly posted a day early! That turned out to be wishful thinking, as my phone ended up ringing off the hook all day and I just couldn't quite get to writing this up. Nevertheless, here we are! Every week here at DinarVets, a group of us enter our powerball numbers into the "Pool" (join us here this week). It occured to me this week, as I bought my lottery ticket, that I don't expect to win the lottery. I don't expect anyone else here to win it, either, but I still buy the tickets and enter my numbers in the Pool, because there's always a chance... and if we don't play, we can't win. The Powerball is a random chance. It's highly unlikely to land in our laps, no matter how long we wait. Nobody in our group is likely to win it, but we keep on plugging those numbers in there. There is a chance. My thought process on the Iraqi Dinar is much different... I fully expect to cash in on that one. When I bought Iraqi dinar for the first time, I will admit that I was not nearly as knowledgeable about it as I am today. Over the years, I have continued to learn about it, educating myself and sharing that education, and I am more confident than ever that this will end with a good profit. The year 2020 continues to shape up as a GREAT year for it, too! Right now in particular, many of you probably noticed how the "news" sounds... none of the squawk boxes are chattering about Iraq. Iraq was not mentioned once in my daily morning news feed... and that's just the way I like it. It was just a couple weeks ago that Iraq was in the spotlights, right next to Iran, but as of this morning - not a peep about the middle east. At least, not in the MSM. Here on DV, we have better sources and a more refined "ear" for what's going on! A couple of examples from the forums here: For example, it's looking more and more like one of the Allawi's will be appointed PM. My vote would be for the one that Maliki likes the least, but I don't get a vote in that. LINK. There is a bit of talk about the USofA interfering, influencing, or otherwise controlling Iraq. This holds some truth, such as what we see here. My opinion is that Trump may not be directly responsible for Iraq's RV, but Iraq is being pushed to move away from Iran, and that is a good thing. Articles like these are pretty solid evidence that Iraq wishes to stay on our good side, and all that nonsense about Iraq "wanting US troops out immediately" was just that: nonsense. More evidence on how Iraq feels about the US: There's more, of course.. but that's enough for now. My friends, this situation is unfolding before our eyes... I have a strong feeling that the Dinar news is going to get much more exciting, very soon. I'll be here as it happens! - Adam

    Thank you Adam As a trader I’ve learned to filter out the “noise” and look for TREND, especially when a new trend is getting ready to take place. I’ve also learned from a lifetime of observation, when things are getting ready to change it gets real noisy. Forget the noise. Here are the FACTS. Trump and his team got a Historic China Trade Deal signed yesterday. The USMCA was ratified by the Senate today The Business world has been released from Stifling Regulations and Taxes Brexit is resolved Soleimani has been eliminated and Iran has been given its last warning. Any one of those listed above could be called a game changer but to get them all within the last month is truly truly incredible. ( tax cuts took place 2 years ago) We have the mechanisms ( rules, laws, treaties, a big hammer) in place to activate one of the most historical worldwide economic BOOMS in our lifetimes. Everything is ready except the fuel to ignite this economic engine. Maybe just maybe that fuel is an Iraq Dinar RV/RI. We can only hope that is the next thing to get accomplished. Things are changing at a quickened pace. Stay grounded, prepared, and look for the opportunity that awaits anyone who puts in the work. I can tell you all straight up I’ve been trading this news for the last 2 months and it has been amazing. Take a look at a Daily chart of AAPL or Tsla just to name a few. Yes, I’m Bullish!!! After 20 years of wars, stifling taxes and regulations on our businesses, trade wars, watching our businesses and jobs get shipped overseas, unfair trade treaties, (and so much more) it is great to see strong leadership and changes that will be good for a world wide economic BOOM!!!!

    Good morning all! A few things to touch on this morning, and then I'll send out an email. First on my list - and I'm going to keep this SIMPLE - we are in my green zone! There is no better place on this chart for an RV. It is THAT simple! Because I'm feeling so chipper about this graphic, you're going to get a 33% discount on VIP. Take advantage, get in! Click here and use discount code "chipper". Just as an FYI, I don't send out emails weekly. It's not my intention to clutter your inbox, and if you're hankering for a dinar news fix, you know where to come... right here! On to more exciting stuff! There was a bit of suspense regarding Iraqi Parliamentary activity today. The Financial Management aspect was pushed off, but I don't see that as a major factor. The other 5 matters were attended to, from what we can tell... 5 out of 6 is a huge improvement over what we used to see out of Parliament! This is just another testament to the progress Iraq has made and continues to make. Oil... I know I don't have to harp on this, but oil is a big deal and Iraq is focused heavily. In fact, OIL wasn't even officially on the agenda for today's Parliament votes, yet it was still a heavy matter of discussion. I'm reading into that part. It wasn't even on the official agenda, but it was a major point of discussion. The goal, as stated by all reports, is to get affairs in order quickly. That makes sense to me, and I'm keeping a keen eye on things. I think we're going to see HCL news quicker than they are letting on. To add to that thought, let's consider the current global situations of two other countries that are relevant to Iraq's progression: Iran and Saudi Arabia. Iran and Iraq are friendlier than I like, but that's an emotional opinion rather than a business one. Iran is in a geographical position to be beneficial to Iraq, and Iraq does have a large percentage of it's population that is sympathetic to Iran, so some buddying up is to be expected and will not prevent or delay a restructuring or revaluing of their currency. Iran is handicapped by sanctions at the moment, so they are of less help than they would be otherwise. Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, is not crippled at all. They are powerful, in good graces on many accounts, and are getting friendlier with Iraq than they have in the past. Since Iran is not the most capable ally to Iraq, does it surprise anyone that PM Abadi is in Saudi Arabia today... discussing trade, policy, and OIL? Abadi is currently on day 1 of a 2 day visit. I am crossing my fingers for some solid progress as a result of the things I've just mentioned. Next on the list of items "coming up soon" is Ramadan. This is a big part of the timing... we're either going to see an RV before Ramadan, or after Ramadan. I've maintained for years that no RV will happen during Ramadan, and that hasn't changed. Ramadan comes early this time around - May 5 to June 4, according to google. Show me HCL news in the next week and I think we're looking at a big surprise... I hope you are all ready. If you're not in VIP before the RV is announced, you will have missed your chance. As soon as the value on the dinar changes, the doors on VIP will immediately close, and you will be locked out forever. Use this discount and get in there with us! Discount code "chipper" will work on any of the first 3 packages listed here. I'm going to wrap up for this morning, but I'll leave you with something @Synopsis posted a few days ago... I happen to agree with most of it. GOOOOO RRRVVVVVV!!!!! - Adam ======== Quoted post below: ======= I recognize the Bicraqi Iraqi GOI, among other Bicraqi Iraqi functions, is/are extremely dysfunctional at best. I am not sure about the "cohesiveness" of the Bicraqi Iraqi prior to Saddam Hussein whereas I suspect legacy Ottoman Empire, World War I, World War II, legacy Silk Road, and modern economic interests in Iraq have "shaped" a semi cultural nomadic lot of tribal and otherwise inclined easily excitable on a variety of different issue folk. So now enter the Bicraqi Iraqi democracy and foreign influences. The Bicraqi Iraqi have both benefits and challenges being strategically located and enormous natural resource wealth beyond just the crude oil. Likely, many entities are on the take whereas the rank and file Bicraqi Iraqi Citizen just wants a better life - without war - like other sane people. Except, Heat AND Sand Season REALLY messes THEM up like NOTHING else. So, the Bicraqi Iraqi as a whole are likely substantially without a cohesive understand of what a national norm is, what it looks like, and how to sustain it. However, Iraq, with ALL the Bicraqi Iraqi, REALLY needs to be a Safe, Secure, Stable, AND Sovereign State for both Bicraqi Iraqi AND INTERNATIONAL reasons. Enter the "opiate of prosperity" via Foreign Investment ALONG with the Safety, Security, Stability, AND Sovereign Iraq CAN OFFER the Bicraqi Iraqi whereas THEIR prosperous norm, should it be challenged, WILL BE neutralized at the source. Some of THESE roots are taking ahold now although slow and tedious. It is fabled Dr. Shabibi WAS going to ReInstate the Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar back in 2012 or 2013 at a time, oddly, outside of the typically assessed "prime" "time" of the year. The question I have is, "Are the conditions better or worse now than in 2012 or 2013 when Dr. Shabibi is fabled to have attempted to ReInstate the Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar Internationally?" In my opinion, the conditions regarding Iraq have never been better now than ever before BY FAR noted here: Iraq by far is recognized as a Sovereign State by regional and international entities at capacities and frequencies never seen before as a new democratic entity with a distinct government. Old Mr. Potato Head Nouri al-Maliki has never been weaker influentially than now especially with the Insanian Spanctions REALLY biting AND biting MUCH HARDER in the NEAR future. Bark Insane Obama, Hilly, AND Scary John Kerry have all been defanged whereas THEIR liabilities are ratcheting through the legacy systems THAT NO LONGER have the influence and direction like the past. Nauti Arabia, Scordan, AND the KoolAidis ALL have an interest in eradicating Insanian influences in Iraq. The Insanians ONLY destablize entities for THEIR end of destruction and control at the impoverishment level. A significant influence of the Insanians in Iraq THREATENS Nauti Arabia, Scordan, AND KoolAidi Sovereignty as a GROWING cancer. Economically, the Insanians are EXCEPTIONALLY inferior to the Nauti Arabian, Scordanian, AND KoolAidis ESPECIALLY with THESE folks having FAVORABLE relationships with The United States Of America economically AND militarily. Other. I look at Iraq with ALL the Bicraqi Iraqi from the lens of Safety, Security, Stability, AND Sovereignty compared to the level of external influences and internal Sectarian Violence AND likelihood of Civil War. Should the Safety, Security, Stability, AND Sovereignty of Iraq outweigh the external influences and internal Sectarian Violence AND likelihood of Civil War significantly, I suspect the introduction of the "opiate of prosperity" will peg out the Safety, Security, Stability, AND Sovereignty of Iraq while simultaneously strongly forcing out external influences AND quell internal Sectarian Violence AND likelihood of Civil War. The transitioning to a Bicraqi Iraqi "open economy" with a REAL TIME transacted Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar WILL ALWAYS have SOME ISSUES. NO doubt about it. The transitioning, to me, WILL be like "grinding" "some" "gears" instead of shifting ALL gears smoothly. THERE NEVER WILL BE AN OPTIMUM TIME WHERE EVERY CONDITION IS SATISFIED. The basic issue is whether the key and functional items can be maintained at an acceptable operating level while the other issues and conditions are acceptably rectified past entering the "open economy". Here are a couple overall parameters to be met, in my opinion: Sufficient Safety, Security, Stability, AND Sovereignty of Iraq. Absence of Sectarian Strife AND Civil War with the imminent threat thereof in Iraq and areas immediately surrounding Iraq. Sustainable peaceable relations, especially economically, with other international entities. Sufficient International Entity recognition and support for Iraq as an integrated economic and peaceable entity. The "program" "rate" Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar JUST DOES NOT CUT IT representing the ACTUAL foreign and local investment potential in and for Iraq. The economic imbalances long term WILL NOT sustain Iraq AND the entities doing business with Iraq ESPECIALLY the economically potent AND stable foreign entities investing in Iraq. The Bicraqi Iraqi DINAR MUST GO REAL TIME INTERNATIONAL PRONTO TONTO for the reconstruction, construction, AND economic development to have ANY traction WHATSOEVER!!! WHEN, pray tell, will ALL THIS come together???!!! Iya dunno. Maybe BABY I am JUST WAY, WAY off MY rocker AND YOU wasted YOUR time reading ALL THIS NONSENSE!!! Sorry. eh? Ah, ALL told, NOBODY knows IF, WHEN, OR HOW MUCH IF EVER. THIS is, NO doubt ABOUT IT, a Speculative Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar Investment. WE ALL have our varied reasons for reasonably venturing into THIS Investment understanding the risks AND uncertainties with the MADNESS brought about at times with the LACK OF PROGRESS AND PAY OUT WE ALL ARE ANTICIPATING. So........................................................ We Wait. Hopefully, THIS was worth YOUR time reading. Have A Great Weekend!!! Go Moola Nova!

    Good afternoon, DV! Surprise, it's THURSDAY! Let's talk about dinar for a few moments: Oil saw a nice upward spike yesterday. We're not quite to $60, but the trend is still positive. I expect it to pull back a tiny smidge, then continue the steady pace in this direction: This is probably a good time to be sure you all understand something - I'm not saying "the day OIL hits $60, we will have an RV"! $60 was the direction I wanted to see, and we're basically there. As long as the current trend continues, we are in the (green) zone. Steady and controlled oil prices, + steady and stable GOI, + some HCL goodies... that's what we're looking for, and it keeps coming! One item that is of note, and may push us out just a little bit, is the budget/fiscal year. There is a LOT of accounting to be done with any kind of monetary change, and it would certainly make things cleaner to change the rate on a specific date that coincided with something logical like the start of a fiscal year or quarter, or perhaps the beginning of a new budget, or something like that. We are a couple weeks away from the end of Iraq's first fiscal quarter. Their fiscal (XYZ) can be a bit confusing because they don't get the new budget out until after the new fiscal year has already begun, and in the past they have stated that surplus in the budget applies to the following year. Oh, there's nothing like proper planning, where the first three months of the year you have no idea what's in your checking account or what bills are in the mailbox! 🤦‍♂️ That's nothing to concern us, of course. In fact, with the steady progress we're seeing in all other areas, the prospect of a currency value change at the start of Iraq's Q2 is a pretty reasonable thought. In other news... not much I can say right now! Parliament is in session and WORKING. The latest on a relevant HCL thread is here: We don't have an announcement, but all of the clues are saying *soon*. That's what I have for you this fine Thursday, friends! I'll be monitoring, have a fantastic day, and GOO RRRVVVVVV!!! - Adam

    Hey everyone! I'm filing this under "weekly", but really it's just a follow up to last week's chat. I've been traveling and internet has been a problem, hence the delay. Last week, I was expecting a particular bit of news out of Iraq, based on conversations with my personal contacts. This isn't earth shattering news, on the surface. If you're here for a "rate or date" prediction, you can go back to cat videos on youtube now. Seriously! Here you go, please enjoy... I know you will. (Cat video above!) Back to business I don't always share the "inside" stuff that crosses my desk, but I often hear about trends and insights that are about to be released. I have to be certain about what I post before I make public statements, because every word I post here is analyzed 6 ways from the closest palm tree, subjected to 17 different interpretations, and sometimes used maliciously. The item I'm about to talk about was a 99%er, and it's very positive for us, but I was holding it tight for a few reasons... one, I don't want to blow up the server with it. Two, I don't want to give the "gurus" any more than they already have. Let me get to the point, assuming you're still reading and not completely distracted by the video above Due to my technical issues over the last few days (3rd world country internet), I suddenly find that I have to scrap an entire public update because someone beat me to the punch on this one... nice job, @6ly410! This is the offending article, which was posted in response to my last weekly update... and this is where the conversation gets serious: Unless you've been living under a rock or just found the DinarVets.com website, you know I've been talking about how the current OPEC agreement is a huge "ace in the hole" for Iraq. That article above is the biggest "bat signal" imaginable! I'll spell it out real quick - OPEC (The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries is an intergovernmental organization of 14 nations, founded in 1960 in Baghdad by the first five members, and headquartered since 1965 in Vienna, Austria. Wikipedia) currently has an understanding / agreement to limit production. Iraq is not specifically included or excluded from it, despite the founding information you can see above, and they are in prime position (GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY) to monetize their place in the deal. I don't know what else I can say about it... Iraq is in the best place we could hope for. Ramadan is nearing it's end, we are looking at a live fuse attached to a financial firework, and I won't be surprised if they light the fuse before 4th of July. Not that Iraq cares about the 4th of July... that date just happens to mesh with the "live fuse" metaphor, and the timing is right. Ignore it if you want. Join VIP if you want to have max benefits. The choice is yours. Either way, I'm excited to be on this side of the microphone as things go down! GOOOO RVVVVVV!!!! P.S. There's an OSI-only post coming soon. I have a VIP post that I wanted to get out by now, but I refuse to release things that aren't complete. Soon. P.P.S. We all love cat videos. And we all know that over 90% of the members here just show up for the entertainment, and less than 10% of us are serious about Post RV, so for 9/10 of the community... please respond with a funny cat video Some of you need no encouragement.

    Gooooood afternoon everyone! Well, we did it! We weathered another Ramadan, and Eid al fitr. I am going to state the obvious: Despite no RV announcement during the Big Holiday, this was a more eventful one than normal. All positive, too! Historically, many of the bigger milestones have happened around this time of year. Chapter 7 was lifted in late June, for example. A few others have also occurred right around now as well. I have my eye on some "triggers" - nothing I can put a guarantee on, and I had a work issue pop up right as I was getting started with this update, so I'll save my hypothesizing for later. I have reason to believe we are entering a unique week for the Iraqi dinar, so I have already blocked time off on my calendar for additional dinar focus over the coming ~10 days. If I'm wrong, you can tar and feather me. If I'm not wrong, we should have some interesting times ahead. Before I wrap this up, here's something I don't do very often - This thread is now open for questions. What's on your mind? ( I'm a glutton for punishment, what can I say?! And I already have extra time blocked off for Dinar this coming week, so what the heck... let's do it! )

    Good morning all! Today is Wednesday, 3rd of July 2019. The air is crisp... well, not really. Actually it's humid here and the mosquitos are napping for the moment, but it's still a beautiful day! Interesting times right now. GOI members are playing very nicely. Bitcoin saw that pullback I mentioned, and looks to be on the rise again. The G20 didn't produce any immediately exciting news that I've ran across, but it didn't bring us anything bad either. Back in the news, and worth a review, is the current OPEC agreement. This article I posted this morning highlights a very important point I've been harping on for some time, and even extends it - the current OPEC deal. Important notes in that article: Iraq is the 2nd largest oil producer in OPEC. (Does it make sense that it's currency is valued so low?) The production limitation agreement has been extended for 9 months - to boost the price of oil, rather than overproduce and drive the prices down. There is more in there, but let's focus on those for a moment. The amount of time the agreement has been extended isn't as important as the mere fact that it IS extended. Oil is hovering just under that $60 mark, and the stability is a great thing. Stable oil prices = comfortable accountants = solid footing to RV. (Yes, the accountants have a say!) Iraq is noted as the second largest producer... wait, what? We're talking about BLACK GOLD here, one of the most valuable commodities on the planet. And Iraq is #2... yet the currency they use is currently over 1000X weaker than the US dollar. Collectively, OPEC nations have over 80% of the world's known oil reserves... yet Iraq, the 2nd largest producer in that group, has a currency that would require 2000 pieces of it to buy a loaf of bread at your corner store. OPEC as a group agreed to keep oil production low, to stimulate oil prices. The majority of the members placed their name on the list of participants in this endeavor when it was originally voted on. The majority of the members did that... ... Iraq specifically did NOT. I hope you understand how huge this is for Iraq. They are one of the founding members of OPEC. The 2nd largest producer in the group. Iraq is agreeing to support these cuts. But they did not agree to join the group in their cuts. This gives Iraq carte blanche - complete freedom - to increase their production on a moment's notice, revalue their currency, and corner the market while they rake in cash to cover their "expenses". They may be operating on an increased production as we speak, stocking up hidden stores of oil in preparation for a huge push to bring in a massive amount of capital to cover the RV. There is more than one way to skin a cat, as they say, and that's just one aspect. The above is certainly an oversimplification of the big picture, but the fact remains - Iraq is nodding in agreement with the cuts, but they have never committed to it. NOT. ONE. TIME. Have a safe and happy 4th, everyone! If my next post is missing some letters, I'll run a contest to see who can guess which finger I may have lost. GOOOOO RRRVVVVVV!!!! - Adam P.S. As a side note, you might want to consider shorting oil as soon as the RV is announced... I know that's a gamble I'll be considering heavily.

Happy Hump Day! There is a recurring note present in my updates recently... I'm sure many of you already noticed. The note has to do with the truth that can be found in rumors, even if the rumors themselves are not entirely accurate. I'm going to continue that today, because the rumor section seems exceptionally lively... and some of it holds some very solid truths, even if the rumors themselves have been hyper-inflated like that time your neighbor Bob caught that 28 pound perch. This time of year has historically been big for Iraq. Monumental items like Chapter 7 unfolded in late June, and there's another important event right around the corner: The G20 Summit. Here's a fairly detailed explanation: https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/new-atlanticist/the-g20-summit-explained Excerpt: You probably noticed that Iraq is not on the list. In that case, it might not be immediately obvious why this even matters to us, so I'll explain a small part of it. Even though Iraq isn't technically "present", it's not difficult to understand that anytime oil, money, gold or gifts leave Iraq - they are touched by one or more of those major players listed above. For Iraq to be successful in raising the value of their currency, they need to be able to operate their business, and the G20 Summit will have an effect on how the global money game is played for the next year. Once the Summit has concluded, Iraq may change their tactics slightly, but most importantly they will be free to make a decision and act accordingly. It's a big deal, and it's good. So although I don't expect an RV announcement to be made at the Summit, or directly because of the Summit, I do think it's reasonable to expect some actions after the summit. Before I forget - the DV lottery pool. https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/topic/266455-dv-lottery-games-for-625-626-2019 And if that kind of lottery isn't your thing, maybe bitcoin is... anyone paying attention here? We have a special spot for it in VIP, and we've been pretty hot on BTC for a couple weeks now. Does it surprise anyone that BTC is on a tear right now? It wouldn't, if you had been watching this VIP thread! To sum that up, in case you're not in VIP - BTC (bitcoin) took a scant 16 days to soar from 10k to 20k when it hit it's all time high. As I'm typing this, BTC is over 13k... up over $2000 since yesterday. When it was announced that facebook was officially getting in the game (see my thread started June 19), I personally hailed it as a great thing for crypto in general. I will NOT be surprised to see BTC hit 20k again, and it won't take long. This is not based only on the Facebook announcement, and I won't get into all of the boring details here - we're discussing it in great detail in the VIP section. Did I mention we're talking about this stuff in VIP? (As if you needed another reason to join us there, you know! ) Whether you're in the pool, or happily watching Bitcoin rise, or just hanging out in VIP enjoying the knowledge and sharing the adventure with us, waiting to take advantage of a better cash in rate soon... .... GOOO RRRVVVVV!!!!

    Good morning all! Happy International Women's Day, especially to those of you amazing women on our staff and member list here at DV. The world, and DV, would not be as awesome without you! This has been an interesting week in the markets, but not so much for Dinar when it comes to actual news. There's a good reason for this. Oil has been pretty flat, just like the news on HCL. Step back and take a "big picture" view of the situation, and it's easy to understand that this is to be expected. I find it amusing to read the headlines that state "Oil production falls to (X time frame) lows..." Hang on a second, oil "falls"?! That's the headline? I don't think that's accurate. It's not "falling" - it's being controlled, exactly as they planned. This is a topic we've been on top of since 2017, before the talk of OPEC agreeing to slowing oil production. The headlines would be more accurate if they said "Planned reduction in oil production to stabilize prices" But that doesn't get as many clicks, it's just not as sensational... even though it's the truth. And we've been expecting it, because we have been watching this sector through a fairly specialized set of glasses. Interpretation: All is going according to plan. And if all is going according to plan, then it's just a matter of time. Sunday is the first day of work for the Iraqi week, so I'd suggest taking a couple days away from the "news" - get in VIP for the peace of mind, do some reading in there if you want to be prepared, informed, and ready. Otherwise enjoy a couple of days away, because we're not going to have an RV in the next couple days. Unless I'm wrong. I'm always open to that possibility! - Adam

    Hey hey Happy Thursday! Thank you to all who responded in this thread yesterday - the support and love that this community shows is nothing short of incredible! Quick update on the Iraqi Dinar for today... I'm very very interested in how things are playing out. It's very easy to get distracted, but we're too smart for that here at DinarVets. POP QUIZ TIME!!! Who is the Prime Minister of Iraq? (Insert Jeopardy music... 🎶) Ok, time's up. The answer is: Abdul Mahdi! (Did I just hear gasps and other noises of shock and awe?!) Yep, Abdul Mahdi. The same guy that was supposed to be replaced. Then the President of Iraq was also going to resign, and there was 15 days to resolve it all, and I believe there was some Hell and Brimstone and perhaps the stock market was about to tank with the impending WWIII... but for some reason, the only thing I've heard about on the news today is a bunch of fluff about IMPEACHMENT of the President of the United States. An Impeachment which, by the way, is going nowhere. It's a non-story. And the DOW is over 29,000 are you laughing at all of this with me yet?! I don't know what bugs you more - fake news, or non-news - but this has the marks of both at the same time! It does not actually annoy me, of course. I let it go in one ear and out the other, as I'm digging through the news for what REALLY matters. Despite the news being clogged up with all the non-news and fake-news headlines, there is actually a lot going on that we should be aware of. For example: The budget isn't a huge deal to me, but the "devil is in the details, as they say. Check out this follow up from @DinarThug - Mahdi, who should have been replaced by now, is not looking like a PM that is on the way out! As a matter of fact... it looks to me like the whole resignation thing is almost blown over and forgotten. Maybe that was the plan from the beginning, or maybe it just worked out that way, but I stated back in November that I like Mahdi in his role. If he does indeed end up staying - and continues to actually govern, as he's doing in the article I linked to above - he's still a good person for that role, very capable of orchestrating the situation we need for a successful RV. We aren't in WWIII. Bitcoin is back over $8600. (Super interesting article here.) The DOW is over 29,000. All good stuff, my friends... closer and closer we inch, every single day! That's it for me right now - more to come later. - Adam

    Good afternoon DinarVets! For some time now I have personally had my eye on Iraq's dealings with other countries, much like many of you have. When it was announced that Iraqi officials were making a special trip to China for some specialized talks, it really perked me up! I wrote about it in a few places, and followed up a few days ago with an explanation of how Iraq can be really successful by following a similar path as Panama. (Let's not get into politics here - I'm talking about business strategy.) Since then, the China news has just gotten hotter and hotter! Of course none of us knows exactly how this is going to shake out, but it's undeniable that some major movements are taking place. The examples are too numerous to list, but here's a good one... start at this following link and learn about EIGHT "important agreements" between China and Iraq. Anyone remember a company called "Huawei"? Yeah, they are listed in these articles too. The amount of the agreements amounts to some $500 billion (on the surface). Is this China investing in a poor, tattered, and hopeless nation? Or is it China investing in a resource rich and soon to be powerful ally? When every Iraqi suddenly has the money to buy a smartphone, Huawei is going to be first in the shipping lines. And make no mistake, Huawei isn't on the market making "just" chinese electronics and spy gear... check out this comparison of Huawei's camera vs Apple and Google's best products. That's just a little sidenote. It's a tiny speck in the big picture. Perhaps a bigger speck is this one: The multi-million dinar question at this point may be as simple as this: "If China invests 500 billion into Iraq, does Iraq want to pay it back in Pre or Post RV dinars?" I'm off to get some VIP work done. GOOOO RRRRRRRVVVVVV!!!!!! - Adam

    Good morning all! Just a quick note this morning, because I'm bubbling with excitement over the recent progress and feel compelled to get something up here. No, we don't have an HCL... and no, there has been no RV announcement. But, boy howdy, talk about tracking! Iraq, the CBI, President Trump, and the Easter Bunny all have something in common: NONE of them are going to give us a specific "heads up" when Iraq is about to pull the trigger on a ReValuation of the Iraqi Dinar. Our job here is to be informed, engaged, and prepared. OIL is over my forecasted/predicted/anticipated mark of $60. A member pointed out last week that the benchmark price I chose is WTI, which is not necessarily "Iraqi Oil", and to be fair it has been some time since I explained why I chose WTI as a reference point. Quite simply, WTI is a commonly used price that can be used to reasonably gauge activity across various markets. Since actual daily Iraqi production and sales are not readily available, it makes sense to track another index or marker that has a more reliable report available. As of this writing, oil (WTI) has surpassed $60 and is on a steady pace (slow and steady wins the race!) upwards. This isn't the only thing that matters, of course. The ReValuation (RV) of the Iraqi Dinar isn't hinged on any one item by any means! It is a culmination of many moving parts, and OIL is only one of them... ... but OIL is a big piece, and it's performing exactly as we we want. I'll post a more in depth update later, but one other item is on the news - BTC. I wouldn't get super excited about it, but the gains on BTC this week are definitely worth looking at. More on that later as well. As always, GO RVVVVVVV!!!! The stars are aligning. More to come later. - Adam

    As to Turkey's role in Iraq, America can punish the Turks with sanctions, that's true. However, America also has carrots for Turkey, as well as sticks: America can also use it's influence to reward Turkish financial interests in Iraq. Such as: Turkey has some of the biggest construction firms in the Middle East, such as The Agaoglu Group. It will take a massive effort to re-build Iraq. The Turks can make a lot of money helping to re-build Iraq, if things work out. The Chinese are already on-board. This can work. By America pulling back from protecting the Kurds in Syria, it sends a message to the Kurds in Iraq. This has practical implications for the Kurds in Iraq. The message is pretty loud and clear, if you follow the region: America no longer is protecting your interests. This forces the hand of the Kurds in Iraq. They have to quit being a pain in the neck, forget about having an independent country, not gonna happen. The background is: because there are Kurds in Iran as well as Turkey, as well as Syria and Iraq, when America doesn't have the backs of the Kurds in Syria, that's a strong message on American intentions in Kurdistan in Northern Iraq. The message for students of history: No one at this point is going to re-draw the map of the Middle East. Those days are gone, by about 100 year, since the Sykes-Picot Agreement redrew the political lines in the area. Obviously that agreement was flawed, it left out the Kurds, didn't give them a homeland. That's a shame. However: It's too late for them now. Kurds have to make peace with Baghdad and the other leaders in countries with Kurds. So no, the Kurds are SOL....America won't back you anymore, for your new Kurdistan Dream..... Is America just being a jerk? No, the reason is practical: The reason is, we don't need the oil in the Middle East any more, so we're leaving. Too bad, Kurds..... Make peace with your neighbors, your dreams of a homeland were squashed by American innovation on fracking oil, which means we don't need ME oil, so Kurdish dreams of a homeland were just killed permanently by both technical innovation combined with foresighted political leadership by President Trump, who as per usual, is miles ahead of everyone on political vision. So to the Kurds America is saying: make peace with the rest of Iraq, pass the oil law, revalue your currency, open up to the world. Then you'll make a lot of money. Don't want to, Kurds? Then I don't care. Talk to the hand and go fight the Turks, fight Baghdad. Not America's problem any more.

    Good day all! Today is Wednesday, 14th of August 2019. Last week we had some good comments - let's keep that going this week. We are at the end of Eid al-Adha, but that's not a holiday that brings business to a complete screeching halt like Ramadan. There is a lot of movement regarding the HCL, like the article below... I feel like handing out some awards this morning! Two trophies go to @DinarThug - one for the hilarious crypto related GIF, ... and the next for a solid HCL related article: @Pitcher takes a medal for the solid GOLD post: This Iraqi dinar RV really looks like it's in the final stages, like the last swirling bits of something being poured through a funnel. In your opinions, what's upcoming on the Iraqi RV schedule? Comment below and let's hear what the group has to say on important upcoming events... there aren't many left. GOOO RRRRVVVV!!!! - Adam P.S. If you subscribed to the brew's free newsletter, you'd already know about this salmon cannon... nothing makes my morning (check out the first response to that tweet) like some unnaturally flying fish!

    Happy Saturday all! The week was long, my apologies for getting this up so late... ... fortunately, I do not have to apologize for anything in Iraq. I know most of you don’t read the entirety of all the threads (who has time??), so I’ll bring a couple of important notes here. This one, in particular, spells out EVERYTHING. Iraq needs HCL (oil law) to really kick things into high gear. The oil law is many things, but of extreme importance is it’s scope regarding Kurdish relations with Baghdad inside the country. You don’t have to do more than skim the following to see that this is ALL about that... and pretty much 100% positive. That’s excellent stuff regarding the HCL, so I’ll leave that one for now. I have a question for the members here - I have my own opinion, and I’ll share that in an upcoming update. The “budget” - specifically, this: There are a few “known” budgets. The operating budget that’s currently in place and a supplemental budget scheduled for September. We can argue that there are more than that, but let’s keep it simple. I’ve seen a few comments regarding the possibility, or even impossibility, of a change in the rate without the “next” budget in place. This seems to suggest that people think a budget must be released that accurately accounts for an increased exchange rate. This means Iraq would give the world a large notice that they intend to change the exchange rate before they actually do it... am I reading the comments wrong, or is that really a belief held by some of the members? If it is, I just want to understand your logic. That's enough for now, I’ll follow up on that somewhat loaded question in a couple days. - Adam

    Good morning all, and Happy Wednesday! I'm a bit slammed with non-dinar related work, so just a short update today. I do have more, but it should hold till the weekend. DJIA is solid over 29,000. BTC is on a strong hold over $10,000. A sincereto everyone for the awesome work in this thread: If you had any questions about the current progress of Allawi, just check the last page or two on that thread! (Currently page 5 and 6, it might be well past that by the time you see this!) You may have noticed a lack of chatter about "protesters" over the last week or two... that's just one of the topics that has quietly just left the news. Of course we don't see anyone making a big deal out of positive news, because that's not the kind of stuff that sells newspapers. But it IS the kind of thing we want to see, because it's what is going to lead us to a higher value on the Dinar. Allawi is building a foundation, the pieces are falling into place, and I have nothing negative to report. I am very interested in seeing a continuation of this one: I think that all makes for a pretty fantastic Wednesday update, even if it is short! I've got some work to get done, y'all be good, happy, and keep up the good work... Gooooo RRRVVVV!!!!! - Adam

    The trade bank of Iraq was started by the u.s. after the invasion and until the cbi was fully in charge. That bank was suppose to be dissolved in 2008 but it is still there and a main source of u.s. illegal funding. Ask yourselves. Why are the dems fighting so hard to get trump out? It's not because they don't like him. Lol. He follows the money. The next shoe to drop for biden is the Iraq file. From the day we invaded we have bilked this country, and it got worse under Obama. Human trafficking, human organs, etc accelerated massively during this time. No one realizes how much money is involved in that. War is not just the obvious we see like oil, gold etc. It's the sick **** underneath that reaps the most. I have read countless articles during Maliki reign of bodies found all over that country with the organs missing. Let's not forget the letting out of albagdadi that the u.s. had in custody in iraq. We pulled out and Maliki let him free. Why would he do that? He was a Sunni, Maliki hates Sunnis. Assad let Sunnis out of prison in Syria at the same time. Why? Some will laugh at this but izzat douri the number 2 in the deck of Saddam's cards was making deals with Iran. Iran funds isis through a proxy Sunni and voile you have an Iraqi invader and now here comes Iran to save the day. Now they are not only in your country they are ruling your government. All this plays into the hands of the one seeking the Iranian nuclear deal. Let that sink in. Where did all the yezidi woman go that were captured by isis? Not all stayed with Isis. They were farmed out to every piece of scum like the Epstein and the Clintons. Their global initiative was just that. To globally fund the sickest pieces of Crap with young displaced women. The list goes on and on. Remember what trump did. He signed an executive order on human trafficking. Anyone caught doing it would receive the harshest of sanctions. Why with all the things going on would he make sure that this was such a high priority? Those dinars that Iraq had to pay Iran with by trumps order? They are marked. When this rv occurs all those serial numbers are not gonna be worth anything. Shoot I could go on forever, but solemeini was the tipping point. Trump says he doesnt want regime change. Yes he does. It's the only way things will change. Rudy guilliani said it best at trumps new years Eve party. I got all the documents, and it goes as high as the highest part of the Obama administration. That's what trumps after!!

    Gooooooood morning Dinarvets! There is a lot to discuss, but time is short for me this morning. I'm going to do this update somewhat "shorthand". WTI (oil) at $59 this morning = good. The Kurds already agreed to a portion of the Budget, and they are continuing to make progress on their own responsibilities. Also good. For those coming late to the party, Prime Minister Mahdi is stepping down and is to be replaced. Reading between the lines leads me to believe that a person is chosen, but they are going to wait until the "last possible day" to announce him. This makes sense to me - by releasing the name at the last minute, they will transition into the next phase with less issues. Related articles here. I like it. Things are going well. As long as Steve Harvey isn't chosen to announce the rate, we're going to be just fine! That's it for now. Keep your heads up and don't let the holidays stress you out! - Adam

    GREAT NEWS.!!! After today’s federal court decision Diyala, Kirkuk, Salah ad Din and Ninawa will become part of the Iraqi Kurdistan region. I bet the Kurds are very happy. This will help to pass HCL. Go Art 140 Go HCL Go RV Go $1:1

    DINAR - man-oh-man I can’t wait till the day I get to say “THIS IS IT”! Today isn’t that day, but it’s coming! There’s a fun phenomena about things like this in life. There’s a saying about how "success breeds success" - the most successful realtors I know continue to do well, and in fact their jobs get easier as they get more successful because deals start coming to them. Same goes for VC companies - in the beginning, they have to hunt for deals. After a couple of successes, opportunities start coming to them. The same thing has happened to me in the Dinar world. In the beginning of all this, I had to seek out contacts. I had to do a lot of traveling and palm-pressing to get information, to meet people, to open doors. These days, after being in this circle for so long and meeting so many people - things come to me. By treating people with respect and honoring the commitments I’ve made to people, many many doors have opened, and I enjoy a very solid flow of information and commentary from people who are much closer to the inner workings of not only the CBI and Iraq in general, but also many other related organizations and entities. (The same thing is true for our VIP and OSI opportunities.) I’m explaining this because although I won’t say “I think we’re going to see an RV within XX days”… I AM getting a really strong vibe right now. The timing is getting close, and the opportunity here is real. Stay positive, friends. We may not have as long a wait as some think. OIL - no problems there! Still solid, still right where we want. BITCOIN - h/t to @coorslite21 for posting this video in VIP. This is a SUPER explanation of a couple things Crypto. Of note is the SEC’s available timeline - they have a deadline of August 19, which can be postponed one more time to October 18. I believe those two dates are BIG in the crypto world. Interesting parallel between BTC and the dinar… in that YT video, around the 8 minute mark, he’s talking about people that were looking at the price of Bitcoin in 2014 and waiting for it to drop back down to the $300 range. It never happened, of course, and now BTC is around $8000. Same goes for dinar, and VIP - this is one of those things that has been brewing for years. It might seem like a long time to some of us, but BTC has done a 20X on it’s price in 3 years and there’s no going back. You can’t hop in a time machine and “buy more” at that old price! IQD will be the same way, friends! If you don’t have it now, it will be too late before you know it. And if you’re not in VIP, you’re going to have that same sense of regret. Sadness. Loss. Don’t give yourself yet another situation where you waited too long, “should have” taken action, but didn’t. Get in VIP today. You’ll thank yourself for it. I've got more, but the day isn't getting any shorter! GOOOO RRRVVVVV!!!!!!! - Adam P.S. The Powerball pool! It runs every week, whether I mention it or not. Get in here. P.P.S. Couple random thoughts... Theresa May, will this story ever wrap up? Biggest non-story ever. Stocks - I don't gamble often, but I've really been considering putting TESLA on a permanent short.
