  1. Goooood Wednesday to you all! I'm actually starting this on Tuesday, pretty sure I won't have time to finish it in the morning, so it will probably be afternoon by the time this is posted. The reason is simple - while we don't have an RV announcement (your phone would have blown up by now!), we DO have a lot of interesting and promising items on the table. Up front and center is the new Prime Minister Allawi. As a short recap: Late last year, the former PM resigned. There were several failed attempts to replace the PM. A PM is necessary. Mohammed Allawi was instated as a possibly temporary PM. That "temporary" bit doesn't look so temporary now, because: Allawi is acting in a permanent manner. Namely: I posted some comments at that link above and I think it bears repeating here: "I love everything about how he is doing his job. He's getting work done and not allowing people to try to influence the process. This is definitely the most efficient and possibly the ONLY way to be successful at the job - make decisions, tell people what was done, and move forward." It's not surprising that he hasn't got the job done overnight. Taking the helm in this situation is a BIG job, and in my opinion Allawi is doing a stellar job and getting things done incredibly fast. to @Mary B for bringing this article: That first post should tell us how complex his job is, but again - refer to the earlier quoted post above, and my opinion is the same - Allawi is doing an impressive job. Other items of note: DJIA is down since my last update - as is Gold, OIL, and pretty much everything else. Presumably, this is related to the coronavirus epidemic... which makes one wonder, is this a government CIA cartel illuminati plot to control the financial market, is it the end of times and those of us that are prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse are the only ones who will survive... or is it another bird flu / SARS / mad cow disease scare that is going to blow over in short order? Bird flu lasted a year, SARS maybe two years. I'm guessing the coronavirus epidemic will be about the same, but there's always the chance I'll be thankful I have my stockpile of metals, bullets, and MREs. That's why we have those things, of course! Bitcoin is also slightly down since my last update, but going back only 3 months shows it's really up about 15%. Nobody really has a clue how or when any crypto will go up or down - that science is even murkier than the Iraqi Dinar - but don't forget about the halvening coming up in 75 days! The last halvings have resulted in massive spikes - about 10X, both times according to this article. Personally, I'm HODLing! Don't forget to get in the Powerball Pool! Last (but not least), GOOOOO RRRRVVVVVVV!!!!!! - Adam
  2. 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
  3. Happy Wednesday everyone! Just dropping a note to say I am here, just swamped today with some work that's unrelated to Dinar. Rather than give 20%, I'm going to postpone until later this week. This one has some potential... more on that when I return. Have a fantastic day, everyone! Life is good, don't forget to smell the roses and dance in the rain. Or snow, if that's what you have outside. You get my point. - Adam
  4. 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.

  5. 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
  6. 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.

  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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:
  10. 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!

  11. Good day and happy 27th of December, friends! Iraq is taking the end of 2019 serious, in case you hadn't noticed! There's a lot of chatter on the webs about the various news, and it's worth discussing! First, the recent history: Beginning of October 2019, the people of Iraq began protesting. And when I say "protesting", I mean riots, people dead, "we're not going to take it" level of protesting. The most recent Prime Minister quit, and his successor needed to be named in a short period of time. Parliament made it known that the voices of the people were heard, they know they can't just stick another puppet up there and expect things to be okay again. Of course, we all know that whomever is put in that spot is going to be a puppet, so I should say they know they are going to need a much more acceptable puppet, with a new song and dance. Last week, several options were considered, and they ended up with a completely unacceptable candidate: The current governor of Basra, Asaad Al-Eidani. *Sigh*... as if that was going to go well! Now, the President of Iraq Barham Saleh has stated that HE will also resign over the reaction to this nomination! This takes us to the current situation. My take on it - the President put up the candidate (Eidani) under pressure from Iran and other influences, but he knew that wasn't going to fly. It didn't, and now he's threatening to walk if the GOI doesn't get serious about listening to the people. Bottom line... the people are going to win this one. There WILL be a massive change in Iraq, and it's happening. Right now. Overall, I'm very happy with the situation. I'd be happier if we were a little further along and we had an RV, but obviously these things take time. The next 48 hours will give us more, as stated in one of the quotes below. Oh! The quotes below - I pulled these from some articles posted by @DinarThug in response to the thread "Iraq deadline to appoint new PM looms" - hat tip to you, sir! Excellent work. Read below and piece it together! And... we wait. But not too long, the way things are moving right now. Goooo RRRVVVV!!!! - Adam
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Good afternoon all! Today's update will be really short, mostly because I want to see the next couple of articles that follow this one: Also, because Cyber Monday kicked my butt there was a lot of fun had by myself and the members in the VIP section, and I also got most of my Christmas shopping done! The downside is it stole a day from me, and I'm a bit behind on work. We are currently looking at some interesting Budget possibilities, pressure on pushing HCL forward, and more. All good stuff! Told you it was going to be short. GOOO RRRRVVVVV!!!!! - Adam
  15. Happy Wednesday DinarVets! I'll get to Iraqi Dinar in a minute - first, a couple headlines. 1. Michael Bloomberg officially entered the race for 2020 US President. We've all seen people blow a ton of money, and he can't/won't win (Vegas odds are +2500 currently), so I wonder if there's an ulterior motive here. Anyone have any thoughts on that? 2. Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I'm thankful for many things, one of which is the fact that I'm not travelling through Denver right now. 480+ flights were cancelled through Denver International yesterday... eek! 😬 3. One of these days, we're going to see the IQD revalue. I'm sure of that. What I am NOT sure about is if we will ever hit the lotto big... but you can't share if you don't play! Get in this week's lotto pool here. Of course, you don't want to miss out on the Black Friday special going on right now! Use code "go2019rv" for 25% off on your VIP upgrade or extension. Click here to select the VIP package you want. On to the Iraqi Dinar! The "hot topics" on the subject seem to be budget, budget, and also... Budget. Included in the Budget is always some kind of reference to the rate of the Iraqi Dinar, and every year we have a variety of interpretations on how the Budget will work with a change in the value of the Dinar. To keep things extremely simple, we can just summarize - the "new rate" does not need to be in the Budget. The Budget doesn't have to take a rate change into account. The rate mentioned in the Budget doesn't mean a thing! The reason is very simple. When they change the rate, there are a few ways they can do it. In any of these cases, a one paragraph amendment to the budget will keep things correct. For example, the exchange rate is currently 1190:1 (IQD:USD). If they move the exchange rate closer to $1, they might move the decimal 3 places to the left making 1.19 IQD = $1 USD. Adjusting the budget is mind blowingly simple - a one paragraph amendment reads as follows: It doesn't have to be complicated! And that right there covers pretty much everything. There was also a comment recently by one of the gurus about the new notes being introduced after the rate is changed. I don't normally comment on the comments of others, especially the "gurus", but I happen to agree with this one. There is no reason to introduce new notes without a rate change. Introducing them before a rate change wouldn't make sense. And the fact that there are new notes for us to talk about is a huge indication that there is a rate change in progress or planned. But wait, there's more! Want something else to smile about? How about this... HCL incoming!!! Check out that article, and a couple of the following posts in that thread... the writing is on the wall! That's it for now, friends... this post was meant to be up much earlier today, so I'll wrap it up here. GOOOO RRRVVVVVV!!!! - Adam
  16. 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
  17. Good morning Dinarvets! I didn't title this thread "weekly" because it's probably not going to be the "official weekly" update... this is more of a "drive by". I mentioned recently that I have a favorite daily newsletter - it's called "the brew" (you can get it free at that link), and this morning they nailed a lot of topics that were already on my mind. I figured it would be worth making an appearance for these topics, so here we go! Amongst the topics... Trump/Syria/Turkey/Kurds: This one is a little complicated, so let's break it down. It was announced last week that we are withdrawing US troops from Syria, which led to talk of Turkey ramping up attacks on the Kurds, finger pointing at Trump because he's bailing on the Kurds when we are supposed to be babysitting them, Trump responds by saying if Turkey steps out of line we will hit them in the wallet, and here on DinarVets we're all like "wait what about the Iraqi Dinar?!" WHEW! That was a mouthful First, I'll quote The Brew - they said it well enough: Next, let's identify "the Kurds" - I'll quote a part of this WaPo article that gives a good explanation: So, this current news cycle we are reading and hearing about involving "the Kurds" isn't specifically about Iraqi Kurds, but the events unfolding right now are going to do one very significant thing with regards to Iraq... a message is being sent. I'm not saying I approve or disapprove of the tactics, or the decision to withdraw troops, or the decision to put them there in the first place. But what's happening right now is irrefutable evidence that the US of A has a huge influence in the Middle East, the affairs of the Middle East, and therefore... the Iraqi economy, which includes the trade value of the Dinar. What this sets up in the near future is the confidence and assurance that with the US on their side, Iraq can make changes, improvements, and progress. What happened to Turkey in the past, and may happen very soon again, can happen to Iraq. The same is true of the inverse... where we can inflict severe harm, we can also support massive gain. (GO RV!) ================ Politics... Elizabeth Warren has been running ads accusing Facebook CEO Zuckerberg of supporting Trump in the last election, and her ads specifically state that the accusation may not be true. Read that again if you need to ================ Speaking of Facebook, their cryptocurrency Libra lost a ton of backers... PayPal among them, followed by Visa, Mastercard, Stripe, eBay, and Mercado Pago. Tim Apple also stated a "hard no" on an Apple Crypto, which opens up a lot of room for discussion on the future of BTC. My take is that BTC lost a serious potential competitor with Apple pulling out of the game for the moment. Tim's reasoning for not wanting to get involved in crypto actually supports the argument that crypto is destined for success - feel free to chime in on that one! I have a feeling that the recent release of the Apple credit card has more to do with their current stance on "AppleCoin" than anything else. Either way, BTC seems to have stopped pulling back on price and is poised to move up again. I'm keeping a watch on it. =============== That bit about crypto wasn't in the brew's email this morning, but they did mention bank profits... or rather, the decline in bank profits. Quoting again: I'll add a bit to that... banks aren't going to lose money when there is the option of negative interest. Negative interest is when the banks charge you to keep money in the bank, and what kind of impact do you think THAT will have on Crypto? To the moon, baby! πŸš€ #HODL =================== That's enough for the Monday morning drive by... Happy Columbus day! ( Sorry, couldn't help myself!) - Adam
  18. 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
  19. Good morning and Happy Wednesday! Iraq isn't in the best possible spot this week... we are nearing a month of protests. Mahdi has promised to resign once a successor is named. They are working on a new election law that will likely eliminate a handful of positions in the GOI, and thereby reduce a bit of the corruption. Bad news - nothing is happening immediately. It appears that things are settling, but realistically this is going to take a couple more weeks. On the positive side, the exchange rate is stable in spite of the confusion. I can't imagine a more solid argument for Iraq's future than that! WTI oil pricing is stable. The work that was being done hasn't backtracked - it's just paused. Progress made has not been lost - just paused. On a related note, I've seen a couple of the "rumors" floating around about the dinar being released with "par value" (that means nothing to us), or Chapter 7 being reimplemented, and a few other things like that. I say it's related because when Iraqi news is slow, or negative, the "gurus" always seem to come up with some nonsense like this. That's what it is - nonsense. Just read it, give your favorite newshound or rumor sharing member a "❀️ " for sharing, and take a deep breath - the situation will work itself out, and we'll be back on track shortly. Crypto. BTC settles in over the $9000 mark after a nice boost up... remember a few updates ago when I told you I was going to trade some precious metals for crypto and grab a short term gain? China's news a couple weeks ago certainly happened at a good time! China continues to back off on their former ban on crypto, basically stating they are going to support blockchain... if not necessarily supporting bitcoin itself. Either way, this is really good for the crypto world in general. More blockchain projects and support means more adoption, which means more demand, and BTC stands to gain from that both short and long term. Recommendation for the day: Follow the Crypto section in VIP! You can choose more or less notifications, based on your preferences. Personally - I get an email anytime a new thread is posted, and of course a notification when a post is made in a thread I follow. If you don't know, you can't win. Just for fun: Courtesy of the brew, check out this amazing footage: That's it for now! It's unfortunate that we're seeing a delay in Iraq, more so for them than for us, but keep your head up and stay positive. This train is still heading the right direction. - Adam
  20. Good afternoon, DinarVets! Just a short note from me today. There are positive signs everywhere, but the protests and "civil unrest" that's going on right now has tossed an anchor out on the final progress we'd like to see. It's not something that will last forever. The face of Iraq, Iraq's current exchange rate, OIL news, and more... all mostly unchanged by the current situation. The country is NOT in a downward spiral... but they are in the middle of an annoyingly long "pause". Not much more to say at the moment! We wait. Some of us patiently... others, no so patiently. Keep your heads up and kee on smiling! This shall pass, and then πŸ’₯ (in a good way. Not πŸ’₯ in a bad way. Perhaps that's the wrong emoji for this situation. ) - Adam P.S. How about that resignation we've been hearing about?! Sounds a little like the so-called impeachment process we have here at home in the US of A Thread open for comments and questions.
  21. Good afternoon all! No weekly update this week. Our path to an RV of the Iraqi dinar is pretty clear, so I stay on top of the news and my messages from my people, but I had a major project come to a conclusion over the last week and it kept me away from the computer. I won't say it broke my heart to stay away from the computer for a few days longer than I usually do Normal updates resume next week.
  22. Good evening everyone! I have a longer weekly update prepared, but until these protests calm down... the GOI has their work cut out for them. It's a shame that this is happening, because I had some information towards the end of last week that had me getting pumped up. As much as many of us don't like it... Iraq needs to wade through this mess, and get the protests calmed down a bit before they can take their next steps. Don't shoot the messenger The good news is that we aren't experiencing permanent setbacks. This too shall pass, and when it does, the progress will resume. These types of situations are usually short lived. I'll be back with the rest as soon as possible. - Adam
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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!
