  1. The site is very informative. It clearly states that at the moment the cards are only used for salaries, and have been for some time. Also that they are only for use inside Iraq. There is a list of participating agencies and it looks like they are only of any use to government related employees. A point that many seem to overlook is that the Iraqis have to pay 10 thousand dinar for the card, which probably explains why only a relatively small number are in use.
  2.

  4. They probably thought they were going to Nelson Mandela's funeral. It was reported that he had died but then retracted.
  5. Goes down every morning and comes back up every evening. Been the same way for years. If the dollar was really that predictable we would not need an RV
  6. Global policy, in the last 12 months they have closed operations in Thailand and Korea. It is a bit of a myth that companies will make huge profits from an RV. The benefits will come from business growth, not overnight.
  7. From Recaps. We were initially advised to watch for this release to take place Sunday Night/Monday Morning on FOREX, with a 24-hour delay before the currencies became tradable. Obviously we saw nothing. We expected that the delay might have been pushed to Tuesday in order to comply with normal international banking policies, and in fact were told that might be the case. All of you have heard about the NSA leaker issue in the news, the fact that he fled to China, and that both China and Russia have cooperated in hiding him or preventing the US from finding the young man's whereabouts. Not in our wildest thinking did anyone consider that this event might have a bearing or interfere in any way with the release of these currencies. Turns out that because of the administration's demands on China for the return of this individual, they decided to throw a temper tantrum and provide a short delay in the release process by fussing over the revaluation of the Vietnamese Dong.
  8. Last year, HSBC closed operations in Thailand and Korea.
  9. We are in uncharted territory here and it is not quite so straightforward. To licensed dealers and banks, currency would be 'stock', an asset, and as such cannot change in value because of variation on exchange rate. Assets are valued on a historical cost basis and may be subject to depreciation. In the event of a very large change in the rate it would not be out of the question for dealers to be offered a credit on holdings with the option to repurchase at the new rate before any further sales. In effect they may very well have to stop selling old stock until free to do so. There would be no restriction on selling dinar acquired through exchange at the new rate. Obviously dealers and money changers without audited accounts will not face the same restrictions.
  10. Not according to Frank, I suppose using initials provides an escape route. Frank26 IQD Conference Call Monday, June 24, 2013 • Frank is confident in his opinion that chpt 7 will never be lifted, they will never see the keys to their shackles until they raise the value of their currency; he has been sharing the proof of his opinion for the last 4 years • UN wants Iraq to obey ALL of the mandates • S went to NYC; Frank has always maintained that at the end, S would be back, not visibly in charge, but behind the scenes in charge; we are seeing this • I Teams released 4 people from their security detail, S, Z and 2 others; S and Z are still in NYC, and they will stay there through June 27
  11. Would like to think you are on the right track. If it does come about, I do not think it will be on the 30th but effective midnight on the 30th. There has to be an effective point in time and the start of a new accounting period would be most appropriate.
