    Excellent conversation so far! Lots of great arguments for both this year and early 2019... I'll be happy with either, but root for a Christmas RV. ( sorry, couldn't help myself!) Quick interjection - Iraq won't be paying taxes to anyone, so their decision to RV before or after year end doesn't take that into consideration. Yes Good post, cheers! Amen to that I'll keep that in mind for my next email, can't wait to see the responses on THAT subject line! As always, Synopsis... eloquent and thorough. Agree on the cabinet, @ waiting for Trump to tell them. Yet another great post. This is why I love these "conversation" threads... it's always good to see members come out and share their ideas.

    Morning all! It's been a pretty interesting morning over here at DV headquarters, and there are a couple things I'd love to get your feedback on. In fact, today's update is more of an invitation to discuss than anything else. There are some brilliant people in this community, and even if you're not one of them, please get involved! There are going to be mentions of some stocks below, and these are not items that do or do not invest in (short/long/otherwise), but they play a role in the bigger picture and can be thought provoking, which lends insight to the future if you care to follow along. One of these items is (of course) the immediate future of the Iraqi Dinar. As the year draws to a close, there is a question of "Will this get done before the end of 2018 or is there a benefit to waiting until the start of 2019? Post your thoughts below on why they may want to pull the trigger before year end, or why they would be better served to wait till January 1 or after? NOTE: If you are going to respond with nonsense like "We deserve an RV for Christmas" or "I don't think it will ever happen because I was bullied in school and it's scary outside of my crying closet", please just move on. Those are not legitimate or intelligent thoughts. Thanks Next, and related, is US economy and oil prices in specific. Yesterday WTI posted it's lowest price of the year at 56.55, OPEC has been flirting with production cuts (which makes sense), and President Trump encouraged the opposite (not sure why yet). The DOW has taken a beating lately, but is up over 150 as I type this. A couple of very interesting topics recently have been Tesla (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN). Tesla is fun to watch if for nothing more than the fact that Elon Musk is a wild child and does whatever the hell he wants, by all traditional measures the company simply shouldn't even be in business, yet.. And Amazon is fun to watch because... who or what is going to stop THAT train? Final topic of discussion for the morning, and the "meat" will be in the VIP section, but let's throw this out there anyway... crypto. Last year there was a selloff, causing a dip, before Christmas. BTC has been extremely stable for some time now, but are we heading towards another dip? I'm about 3 weeks early on this particular dip, if it's going to happen again, so this is the perfect time to prepare. Full discussion on that in the VIP section: I have lots more on my mind right now, but I think those three(+) items will make a good starting point. Let the discussion begin! Weekly Q's: Don't worry about the multiple posts bud it happens! Regarding HCL - you have to give me a link if you want a response to a specific article. We do not currently have a completed HCL. This topic is now open for discussion, as I posted above.

    Hi, I just realized there was no public response here even though I know it was taken care of privately. The support tab did move to the 3rd spot. As long as you see "https://dinarvets.com/..." in your url bar of your browser, spelled exactly like that (not http://dniarvtes.org or something like that!), please just find "support" in the menu above and use that.
  4. Link: https://www.investors.com/market-trend/stock-market-today/dow-jones-futures-tesla-stock-best-big-tech-stock-apple-stock/ Dow Jones Futures: With Apple, FANGs KO'd, Tesla Stock Is Still Standing; Futures Licensing ED CARSON 8:13 AM ET Dow Jones futures rose modestly early Wednesday, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures. A month ago the idea would have been laughable, but Tesla (TSLA) is the best-looking big tech stock right now. Tesla stock rose solidly Tuesday, working toward a buy point, above key support levels. Apple (AAPL) closed just below its 200-day moving average. Apple stock joined FANG stocks Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google parent Alphabet(GOOGL) below that key long-term support Tesla Stock: Don't Laugh! Tesla stock is holding above its 50-day moving average as it builds the right side of a base. That's something Apple stock, FANG stocks and most chips can only dream of right now. Two of Apple's Dow Jones peers, Microsoft(MSFT) and Cisco Systems (CSCO), aren't too far from potential buy points but have fallen below the 50-day. Other large-cap techs — such as Intel (INTC), Nvidia (NVDA), Salesforce.com(CRM) and Adobe (ADBE) — are generally in repair or disarray right now. Dow Jones Futures Today Dow Jones futures rose 0.4% vs. fair value. S&P 500 futures were 0.35% above fair value. Nasdaq 100 futures climbed 0.25%. Remember that action in Dow futures and elsewhere doesn't necessarily translate into actual trading in the next regular session. In Tuesday's stock market, the Nasdaq composite tried to lead a rebound from Monday's broad sell-off. But with Apple stock falling 1% to undercut its 200-day line, the Nasdaq was lucky to close virtually flat, up 0.01 point. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 index, with energy stocks hit by a 7% plunge in crude futures, fell 0.4% and 0.15%, respectively. The stock market rally is looking shaky, but it's not a rout. Some top stocks that have broken out recently have fallen back into their consolidations. But several others are acting well. Apple Stock Apple stock has now fallen 13.5% since its Nov. 1 earnings report. Analysts cite signs of weak Apple iPhone demand while several Apple suppliers issue warnings, including Skyworks (SWKS), Lumentum (LITE) and Qorvo (QRVO). One silver lining: Apple suppliers generally did OK on Tuesday, after plunging for most of the month. In a not-unrelated move, the chip sector managed a modest gain. The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index closed off session highs and remains well below its 200-day line, but it's a sign that the Apple bad news has been priced into the iPhone ecosystem. Apple stock were up 0.1% in the premarket. Tesla Stock Technical Analysis On Oct. 10, Tesla stock fell as low as 247.77. On Tuesday, shares rose 2.25% to 338.73 in stock market trading. Tesla stock is in a cup base with a potential buy point of 387.56. The base is deep but still acceptable. Tesla stock appears to be working on a handle, which would lower the entry by about 30 points. But that handle needs a couple more days to form. Meanwhile, the relative strength line, which tracks a stock's performance vs. the S&P 500 index, has been trending higher over the past several weeks, albeit after a long stretch of underperformance. A few smaller techs are performing well, notably Ciena. But Ciena (CIEN) has a $4.75 billion market cap. Tesla stock has a $58 billion valuation. Tesla Stock Fundamentals The third-quarter Tesla earnings report delivered a surprise: actual earnings, and a blowout number to boot. That raised hopes that Tesla has finally turned the corner on earnings and cash flow. Keep in mind that one good quarter isn't enough. Tesla's EPS rank is a lowly 37. That's a prime reason why Tesla stock has a so-so 71 Composite Rating. Tesla earnings must continue. And that's got to happen even as Tesla Model 3 average prices trend lower and the company faces more luxury electric-vehicle competition. CEO Elon Musk has ceded his chairman post as part of an SEC settlement to put to rest the "funding secured" tweet debacle. Musk has to keep his focus on improving Tesla operations rather than obsessing about shorts on Twitter. This is not a great time to making purchases, with the stock market rally under pressure. The fact that Tesla stock looks so appealing relative to other big techs is itself a commentary on the struggling market rally. Tesla stock rose 0.5% in the premarket.
  5. Link: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/11/13/oil-markets-opec-global-stock-markets-in-focus.html US crude plunges 7% to one-year low, settling at $55.69 and extending record losing streak PUBLISHED TUE, NOV 13 2018 • 6:32 AM EST | UPDATED TUE, NOV 13 2018 • 4:01 PM EST Tom DiChristopher@TDICHRISTOPHER KEY POINTS U.S. crude oil dips below $56 to its lowest level in a year, extending a record losing streak. President Trump urged OPEC and Saudi Arabia on Monday to reject another round of production cuts after oil prices collapsed over the last six weeks. OPEC, Russia and several other producers have been raising output but may reverse course and agree to throttle back output at a meeting next month. WATCH NOW VIDEO02:50 A look at the recent decline in oil prices Oil prices fell to a one-year low on Tuesday, deepening a rout that has plunged the energy complex into a bear market as growing supply is poised to swamp demand next year. The latest drop came after President Donald Trump urged OPEC and Saudi Arabia to maintain their current policy of gradually increasing output, which helps to cap oil prices. OPEC and its oil allies are mulling a fresh round of production cuts following a collapse in prices over the last six weeks. The group could announce the new output curbs at a meeting next month, but Trump’s intervention injects uncertainty into the alliance’s decision-making. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude ended Tuesday’s session down $4.24, or 7.1 percent, at $55.69, its lowest closing price since Nov. 16, 2017. Tuesday’s decline extended WTI’s record losing streak into a 12th consecutive session. Brent crude fell $4.28 a barrel, or 6.1 percent, to $65.84 by 2:25 p.m. ET, after tumbling to its lowest level since March. Both WTI and Brent have fallen more than 20 percent from their four-year highs last month, putting them in bear market territory. The pullback began in October when crude futures fell in tandem with stocks during a broad market sell-off that saw investors shed risky assets. Signs of looming oversupply in the market have put additional pressure on oil prices. The world’s appetite for oil is still expected to surpass more than 100 million barrels per day next year, but forecasters have steadily revised their projections for demand growth lower. Even as the demand outlook weakens, OPEC and Russia have been hiking output and supplies are surging from the United States. On Tuesday, OPEC knocked down its forecast for 2019 demand growth for the fourth time in as many months. The cartel said production increases from non-OPEC countries will outpace demand growth next year. “The recent downward revision to the global economic growth forecast and associated uncertainties confirms the emerging pressure on oil demand observed in recent months,” OPEC said. WATCH NOW VIDEO03:39 US crude oil just entered bear market territory — Here’s where three experts say it’s headed next On Sunday, a committee that represents OPEC and its oil market allies said the looming oversupply may force the alliance to consider new strategies to balance the market. The following day, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al Falih said OPEC members agree that technical analysis points to the need for production cuts approaching 1 million bpd. Hours later, Trump tweeted, “Hopefully, Saudi Arabia and OPEC will not be cutting oil production. Oil prices should be much lower based on supply!” Trump has taken to Twitter several times this year to blame OPEC for rising oil prices. OPEC, Russia and several other producers have been capping their output since January 2017 in order to balance an oversupplied oil market. The alliance agreed in June to reverse course and put more oil on the market after cutting output more deeply than the group intended. The Trump administration pressured top OPEC producer Saudi Arabia to raise output ahead of the June meeting. The White House is relying on the Saudis to offset the impact of renewed U.S. sanctions on Iran, OPEC’s third biggest producer and Riyadh’s chief regional rival. WATCH NOW VIDEO03:49 OPEC is getting snookered by Trump, says Black Gold Investors’ Ross The sanctions have shrunk Iran’s oil exports by about 1 million bpd and played a major part in pushing crude prices to nearly four-year highs in early October. Washington has eased some of the pressure on oil prices by issuing waivers to eight countries, which allows them to continue importing some Iranian crude over the next 180 days. Gary Ross, CEO of Black Gold Investors, said Trump essentially “snookered” OPEC by granting the exemptions. “Trump led them to believe the Iranian exports would be zero. It turned out they’re going to be 1.2 to 1.5 million barrels a day, way higher than people thought,” he told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Tuesday. Even as oil prices fall, emerging markets with weak currencies are still struggling to afford crude because the U.S. dollar keeps strengthening, said John Kilduff, founding partner at energy hedge fund Again Capital. Oil is sold in greenbacks, so a stronger dollar makes crude more expensive for holders of other currencies. “They are not getting the crude oil price break that the United States is getting,” Kilduff said. “The demand side of the equation is not necessarily picking up.”

    Good morning all! Today I want to do a quick PSA, due to a recent thread that was posted where some members were getting emails from unknown sources. In all of these instances, the root of the issue came back to one simple thing... people posting their personal information online. I have a simple solution for that: DON'T. Everyone, you should be considering yourself a potential lottery winner. As a person who stands to make a good profit, whether from the actual lottery or anything else, you need to protect yourself. (Speaking of Lottery, get in our weekly pool here: https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/topic/260230-dv-lottery-fall-back-to-millions-game-116-117/ ) Whether you win the lottery in our pool, by yourself, find some oil in your backyard, or stumble across a currency that leads to profits... Protect yourself from online threats! Protect yourself from hidden threats and visible ones. Protect your finances, your information, your identity. This is not rocket science, and the first rule is also the last rule: Don't share your personal information publicly! That's it for my podium time, so let's move on. In local news, elections were held yesterday in the States. THANK GOD! I'm anticipating my phone ringing at least 10 times less per day, getting a dozen less texts telling me to vote, and perhaps I can make it through a shower or a meal in peace. Even though obviously the world is now on fire due to (insert new candidate) taking position and completely ruining society as we know it. Actually, I'm not worried about any fires. Life is going to continue and I'm going to keep taking care of myself and my family. I suggest you all do the same! Ok, NOW I'm off the podium. I guess I wasn't quite done up there On to Dinar! I can keep this real simple, so that's what I'm going to do. 1. As one member stated in a thread, "Mahdi is cleaning house". YEP! The wheels are turning. The transition is rolling along, and that's the best news we can ask for. Keep it moving, Mahdi! 2. More on GOI - as I said above, things are moving. I see all of this as a good sign. There are no major upheavals, nothing shocking, and nothing scary has happened in the last week. Things are proceeding smoothly. To catch up on the most recent news, I'd recommend the following page: As much as I'd love to give you a more specific weekly update, complete with predictions for a timeline and a rate, that's not what we have. What we DO have is solid progress, and that's what I'll end with. Stay patient, friends. Just one Q from the members: Good question! That is certainly an angle I keep an eye on just to monitor my oil related investments, but I do not see it as a direct "hot button" that will prompt Iraq to RV. It will certainly have an impact on their bottom line, but it is not the "deciding factor". That's it for me for now! Stay grounded, and don't let the waiting get to you. All of this is going according to plan, if you ask me... I'm hanging out in the wings, ready to jump when this happens. - Adam

    You are commenting on a thread that is over a month old. Of course the information is a few weeks old... in fact, it sounds like we had it a week earlier than you may have read it somewhere else.

    I'm not understanding you here. The "Support" tab is in the 3rd spot here on the site for me, if you're refering to the tabs... can you post a screenshot of what you are seeing please? This topic was started by UTfan, so if this doesn't help please start a new thread rather than hijacking (changing the subject in the conversation)... On your phone (the "mobile" theme) click on the hamburger icon (3 horizontal lines) top right, then click "All activity".

    Adam Montana Weekly 31 October 2018

    Afternoon all! I've been chasing down some leads this week, but nothing that I can report with 100% confidence, so... nothing major to report at this time. If anything comes of the rumors I'm hearing, I'll do an additional report later in the week. At the moment, I am content to wait for things to unfold - we have some important dates upcoming, and I foresee a holding pattern until the GOI is fully formed. I know that's not what everyone wants to hear, but it's not in my job description to make news up! On the positive side... I have nothing negative to report. Stay patient, friends. We don't have a billion dollar jackpot in the Powerball anymore, but we can split 40 million fairly easy! Get in with us: And the weekly Q's: Quite the display of creative adjectives there buddy! I like it November 6 is a good day to watch for. Is 80% a "magic number"? I don't know if that's the right way to explain it, but I think as long as it's the right 80%, it should be enough. If it's not, it should be apparent at that time what the missing component is (which Government position), which will give us a very decent clue about what we can expect in the coming days. Regarding the upcoming sanctions, I have two thoughts. First, I'm glad they are prior to November 6th - that should streamline any effects that they may have. Second, your insight to the potential effects of said sanctions is very astute. Where the sanctioned parties may experience a weakening, Iraq has a great opportunity to gain strength. For that reason alone, we could have a nice window just ahead! Yes. But it would be a condensed version Not a chance You know I can't answer that! But I am looking forward to closing those doors soon! Dramatically indeed - if we don't have any solid movement after the GOI is seated, I will be doing a more comprehensive post on the subject. Since that may not be necessary, let's just see what the next week brings us. Happy Halloween, Knuckles! Happy Halloween to everyone else as well, and GOOOO RVVVVVV!!!!! Best to you all. - Adam
