    Adam Montana Weekly 16 January 2019

    Good afternoon DinarVets, and welcome to the weekly! I love days like today, where I can just hop right into the MEAT. As much as we all hate "I told you so's", here are a couple. Headlines from the past couple days include: 1. BREXIT. When this was first brought up in 2016, I voiced my opinion that it wouldn't be successful and not to worry about it. As of this morning, it looks like the whole thing was a huge waste of time and is going nowhere... time will tell, but I could have told you that as well. 2. Did you catch my update last week? One of my talking points was oil, the price per barrel, and Iraq's sneaky but convenient exception to the ongoing limitations on production by OPEC members. Just look at these headlines... "Could Oil Prices Rise By $25 Per Barrel In 2019?" "Kuwait National: $ 65 Brent crude average during 2019 and 2020 " " Oil Markets Could See Deficit In 2019 The oil supply surplus is “starting to reverse,” according to a new report from Bank of America Merrill Lynch." (the word "deficit" is a good thing here ) "Heavy Crude: From Glut To Shortage - Jan 15, 2019, 5:00 PM CST" ("Shortage" is another good word for us right now) " Oil rises with hopes of a better market under OPEC-led cuts " ... and so on. Here's the thing, folks... this is the situation that Iraq wants. This writing is on the wall, in the headlines, and it's heading towards RV time. Iraq can read the headlines just as well as we can, so for now we just hang on tight. Oil is at $52.18 right now, and for scientific discussion purposes, I have painstakingly explained below what I'd like to see happen in this market: What more can I say at this point? 2019 is cruising along nicely for us, and as long as you're in VIP with me... you're ready just like me and a boatload of other DV members! Here's the weekly Q's: Possibly. Our VIP options in Mexico seem to change on a daily basis, and I keep an updated database of what is safe, reliable, and viable. If I say "yes" today, it could be "no" next week, so I won't give a commitment on that question until the time is here. In a roundabout way it does, because global events always have some impact.... so, yes. But it doesn't merit any concern for us at this time. I am midway through writing a post on exactly that topic. I'll wrap it up soon and send out an email. For now, my simple answer - I don't think it's likely that they will take the first approach. More on that later. ================ That'll do it for now! Hang on tight everyone, when the nuts and bolts of my picture above come into play, it looks like we're ready for blast off. GOOO RRRVVVVVVV!!! - Adam

    Adam Montana Weekly 9 January 2018

    Good afternoon everyone! We’re off and running into the new year, and I’ll repeat a bit of what I said last week… I’m still pretty solid about 2019. In fact, I like it a lot. Not this week in particular, but in general - I think we've got a solid chance to see some 💥💥 this year! Read on... I've been keeping an eye on the situation for a few months now, waiting to see the trend I'm seeing right now. Waiting for all the pieces to come together. And I finally feel like it's time to voice the following thoughts. This morning I stopped for fuel and my total bill, with a big bottle of Fiji water and a loaf of bread, was a whopping $50. I actually asked the clerk to double check my pump number... FIFTY dollars? I know my Fiji water didn't go down in price, and I didn't stop the pump early! The lady laughed and informed me the price per gallon is currently around $2, which is ten cents higher than it was last week. We may all enjoy a lower pump price, but I guarantee you the Middle East and all our Texas oil boys don't necessarily like them! That's exactly why OPEC entered into a production limit agreement in the not-so-distant past... because supply and demand drives price. Oil is on sale right now, due to a very high supply, and I don't think we'll see an RV while the sale is on. It's simply not in the CBI's best interest to do so. The good and bad news is this - there are actions being taken to get the price of oil back up. Check out this page: Now, think about this little tidbit... you may have noticed at the very top of that page that Iraq has "confirmed their commitment to participating" in the oil productions cuts. But, as a savvy reader who remembers the details, you also know that Iraq was not specifically included in the original OPEC agreement. Iraq is essentially standing on the sidelines, voicing support, encouraging the action... but reserving the right to step back from it and swoop in on some profits once they are there again, while everyone else frantically tries to organize a vote to release themselves from their self-imposed restrictions. At that point in time, Iraq will have all the time they need to successfully execute a couple days or even weeks of trading, exchanging currency with higher values and reaping profits on said exchanges, and everyone wins. Yes, EVERYONE wins. Even the OPEC members that may have seemingly "lost" some revenue with their limited production agreement. The truth of that matter is that none of them are in the dark about the potential for Iraq to revalue. They all sit there, innocently and conveniently silent about Iraq's exclusion from the agreement. Coincidence? I think not. In fact, this is the KEY. It's staring the world in the face, and only a small group of us are even paying attention. I'm ok with that. HCL is still a pivotal issue, but there's no point in finalizing the HCL until oil prices go back up. More good news - Iraq is in a very good position to implement HCL, so once we see this graph going up again... game on! While we wait, be sure to get in the Weekly Powerball Pool! Cheers everyone. - Adam **** Follow up on a post from last week: If $60 is considered "Red Zone", I'd call that the 20 yard line. $70+ is the 5 yard line. If you're picking up what I'm putting down here, both of those are one play away from a touchdown.
  3. Happy Wednesday and HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope everyone’s holiday season was remarkable and amazing, and now we’re launching into 2019. What should we expect? That’s always the question, and I think this year is going to prove different than the last. I have a few reasons that I’ll be outlining in short order, but as always I will not be handing out rumor based opinions or making predictions. Iraq is going to do what Iraq wants to do, when they want to do it. So, here’s to an exciting 2019! It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the tail end of 2018 didn’t bring us an RV. Iraq operates on a global scale, so things that happen around the world do have an influence on them. 2018 was the worst year in the stock market since 2008. More importantly, US crude posted it’s first loss since 2015. Those are not specifically Iraq’s losses, of course, but lower oil prices affect ALL oil markets. Case in point: Combine that with a general lack of news regarding the HCL and we have an obvious situation where they would not pull the trigger. We'd all like to think that Iraq can pull off an RV with lower oil prices, but the current market needs to change for Iraq and everyone else to be confident. It will happen, of course. But this doesn't look like the week for it. Not that I'm discouraged at all! The current market is a temporary thing. Nothing negative has happened to scare us from the future of this venture. And I don't think anything has changed to make Iraq no longer want to regain their former position of power and influence. It will happen. The question is only "when"? A bullet point list is a good idea. I'll put that on my list. If anyone else wants to contribute while I'm getting mine together - feel free! That's one of the best parts of this community. I haven't seen anything specific - have you? The President being friendly with Iraq certainly isn't a bad thing! 1. I don't have my translator, so I'm not sure. (Google translate shows me it's the "cancelation of uncles" ) 2. 3. When is it not!? Cheers, @peace1221! Same here Any real chance - absolutely! But I think it will be delayed until there is a solid swing in the oil market. My New Year was amazing, thank you my friend! I hope yours was as well Blockchain should continue to strengthen in use and acceptance. It should follow suit that prices will rise accordingly. Fingers crossed there, because it sure would be nice to get back into making good money on cryptos! Ahh, buddy, I don't think we're seeing anything to worry about. A change from 1166 to 1190 is miniscule and barely worth noting. Many of your other points are actually positive! I think we are going in a good direction. That's all for me at the moment, everyone! May 2019 bring us all love, luck, and good fortune. GOOOO RRRRVVVVVVVV!!!! - Adam Oh! Don't forget the powerball pool!

    Gooooood morning all! As we creep up on the Christmas holiday and New Years, I want to take a quick second to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS (or whatever you celebrate!), and also a Happy New Year! You'll be hearing from me a couple times between now and 2019, and I'm excited for the new year to roll in! At the moment there is a distinct lack of news regarding HCL. I believe there is a good reason for this - and it's good for our 2019 outlook. Many many things are being taken care of, stamped, passed, and resolved right now. Things that are essential for forward progress. But, the fact remains... that pesky and elusive HCL is simply not on the table right now. As soon as we see word about it, then we can get excited! For now... patience is a virtue, and we have plenty. Don't get me wrong here! They aren't sleeping on the job - check out this thread that started back in 2017, and seems to be gaining steam: Next, a quick announcement before I get to the Weekly Q's: There will be an opportunity to save some money on VIP before Christmas. Use it to give the gift of VIP to a loved one or for yourself! I'll send out information later this week. It will be a limited offering, so don't delay when it hits your inbox! Fingers crossed for some HCL news soon, but in the meantime... lots of love for you all, and be sure to hug your loved ones. This wikipedia page should help you there. Iraq has long been a sovereign nation, but they lost some freedoms in 2003 with the overthrow of Saddam. Their currency plummeted in value, they had to travel a very long road to get where they are today. Chapter 7 was lifted in 2013, which marked a major milestone for them regaining their position in the world. Since then, they have established a very balanced and stable government and worked their way to the point we are currently at - in position to implement the new Hydro Carbon Law, which will likely trigger a change in the value their currency is traded at. Good stuff, right?! I think the main difference would be the players involved - Chapter 7 was an outside decision. They were at the mercy of the UN(etc) on that one. HCL is not that way - this is an internal decision. The HCL is done when Iraq says it is done, and no outside influences can stop them. Appreciate the praise on your service here! We work hard to provide 5 star quality and it's nice to hear it when we hit that mark. Lord knows you can't make everyone happy, but we sure do try. GOI formation is proceeding very good IMO. Everyone should keep in mind that Iraq will never have a fully seated government with absolutely 0 contested seats. We are talking about a society that operates very different than anywhere outside the Middle East. 80% good is about as good as it will ever get, and we are pretty much there. Check out the last page of this thread (currently page 40): I'll take it!!!! That's it for this post. Be sure to get in our weekly Powerball Pool! Merry Christmas, Happy whatever else you may celebrate, and of course, GOOO RRRVVVVVV!!!! - Adam

    Morning all! I know, I know... I completely missed my deadline. Lots of them, actually. Just assume I'm in training to be the next PM for Iraq Sorry to leave you all hanging, and happy to report that I am indeed still alive. Thursday is the new Wednesday Holding pattern on HCL. This is going to break soon. I'm watching it like a hawk and can't WAIT for this to turn! It is going to be in our favor. I'm betting big on this. YMMV Not interested in taking the heat of that job, noooooooo sir! But I am very interested in watching things shake out from here! Probably a couple years before the Pack is a Superbowl team again, and hopefully we still have #12 by then, but... time will tell. See above Also see above. We are getting close. That's all I'm going to leave here for now... more on the way, but until we get some breaking news, I won't be promising any deadlines. Stay grounded, friends!

    Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you’re all ready for the feasting, because tomorrow is turkey dayyyyy!!!! Let the tryptophan induced napping commence! Also on the agenda for the coming days is “Black Friday”. Be sure to have the riot gear ready when you hit the mall, because those little old ladies will legitimately run your butt over with their shopping cart for the $2 savings on their coveted knitting kit. And kick you as they wheel by, if you happened to slow them down too much, because by God there are more things to throw in the cart! Of course, we have to have a “deal” here on DinarVets for the Holiday. It wouldn’t be “Black Friday” without it, and you won't need your karate lessons or a bodyguard to take advantage or it. I’ll jump right to the point - half off your Platinum Upgrade with "TURKEY1", 40% off any other VIP package with the code “TURKEY” at this link: https://goo.gl/D8Y74a Regardless of when the Dinar moves in value, we continue trying our luck in the Lottery Pool. Here's this week's pool: Maybe we will hit that one day and a couple dozen faithful participants will split a big pot, so I'll keep throwing my numbers in there when I remember to do so. The difference between the Lotto Pool and the Dinar, however, is exactly what I just said... "luck". I don't think the IQD RV is the same. There is no "luck" involved, unless you were just lucky to have heard about it before it happens. At some point, we're all going to look back on this and say "Hot DAMN did we get lucky!" - but it's not really luck. Iraq still has a major portion of what is one of the most valuable commodities on the planet. Iraq has been torn down, beaten, and bruised... and then clawed it's way back to a very respectable place. If you're like me, you might be a little annoyed with the wait. But you also realize that the "wait" isn't unreasonable. It only seems like this has taken a long time because unrealistic expectations have been set by many, including some "gurus" that constantly jump the gun and make premature speculations. Things happen in their own time, not on our time. The magic for us is when those two line up... ... and the signs are looking favorable. Regading VIP, the basics are simple: Join VIP and when we have the RV in hand, you're going to get a guaranteed better return on your exchange. We have further opportunities to multiple that profit, and the BEST asset protection plans you can imagine. That's just the short description! VIP is something you won't regret - hop on in there with us. https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ I'm going to answer the weekly Q's and then get this Weekly update published. If I didn't believe it would, I would have sold all mine. That is not the case - I'm sitting tight, with my personal VIP Certificate and Dinar stash close at hand. Iraq is moving in the right direction. It's a small question of timing right now. Pretty simple stuff. What do I have to say about the opinion of your unnamed co-worker, who probably has no credentials or clue, and is talking anyway? Nothing. But you may want to be careful how vocal you are about your personal involvement in this... when the RV is announced, I bet that same co-worker and a few dozen more will suddenly be your best friend(s). Yes, there has been steady progress regarding everything related to HCL. We couldn't have a complete HCL before the pieces were in place, the GOI ready, etc. Nobody will deny that Iraq has moved in the right direction. At first glance, we're talking about OPEC (thank you for posting a link, that helps a lot when answering questions!), which has had a very light hand regarding Iraq. I'm going to get this update posted, I will review that article in full a little later and respond back. *** edit: The article seems to indicate that the US is ramping up oil production, which will lower prices globally. Iraq may need to adjust their Budget, and maybe the potential RV amount will be reflected in that. Let's say they were to RV at $1, but oil is 30% lower than the former anticipated price, then the RV could come in at .70 as well. As far as timing of the RV, I see no concerns. Happy Turkey day, everyone! Take advantage of that discount and I'll see you in the VIP section.

    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.

    Happy Wednesday and good morning! Any day this side of the earthworms always has potential to be great, and today is an exceptional example... we have breaking news. I'm going to give us two names to discuss this morning... Barham Salih and Abdul Mahdi. For the last few months, we've been in a holding pattern. We know what's coming, and it has been obvious that progress was being made, but let's be honest... it was a lonnnnng, slowwwww couple months waiting for SOMETHING to pop. As of yesterday, that slow moving train gave it's first puff of black smoke and the wheels made the first turn. The rust feel off of pieces that seemed to have been stuck motionless for eons, the tracks even groaned a little in protest as this giant piece of history began inching forward, and we have some actual news... ... Iraq has a new president. Here's a name you'll be seeing more of: The new Iraqi President, Barham Salih. What's more, and this happened lightning fast... President Barham Salih has named Abdul Mahdi as Prime Minister. Before I get too far into this, let's note a couple of important things: 1. This is happening fast. If you're not in VIP when an RV is announced, you will never get in! Join VIP here and ensure you are set to receive the most important news first, regarding any tax implications, cash in procedures, and more. The doors will close immediately upon announcement of the RV!!!Don't put that off - the benefits are staggering. We are talking about $$$$(+!) in your pocket on cash in, not to mention all of the other benefits. Get in! https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ 2. This is happening fast! New Iraqi President Barham Salih had 15 days to name the new PM, but he did not wait. He did it immediately. There are obviously plans being set into motion, that were organized well in advance of this announcement. Related article: This is breaking news at this time, so the situation is fluid... but this was a major milestone, and we're hearing the train start to chug. CHOOOO CHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Let's go, Iraq! Couple questions from the members: I don't see anything wrong with this pick. In fact, his immediate announcement of a choice in PM says a lot about how we can expect things to change. This is possibly even better than Abadi remaining PM... the status quo is due for a shakeup, and a "fresh face" can certainly do that now. Looking forward to the coming days! I did not predict Abadi to be the next/new/continuing PM, although there was certainly a chance. Regardless - I have a good feeling about the new guy. The coming days will be a strong indicator of how things will shape out. =================== This is big news, so I'll be monitoring the thread and checking in throughout the day(s). I don't normally respond to the follow up comments in the weekly updates, but this one is big enough to make an exception... leave your comments below. GO RVVVVV!!!!! - Adam P.S. The VIP entrance is here: https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ Remember... you snooze, you lose!

    Morning all! Just FYI today’s update will be coming in late. I’ll send out an email when it’s up!
  10. Adam Montana

    Adam Montana Weekly 10 October 2018

    Morning morning morning!!! Let’s hop right into it, shall we? Yes, we shall! In case you missed the last week of Iraqi news, here’s where we are: Iraq, in a rare move that surprised many and left a lot of jaws on the ground, appointed a President (Barham Salih) and the newly anointed one promptly gave us a new Prime Minister, Adil Abdul Mahdi. I know, I know… TWO accomplishments in one swift move? In the same week!? There’s a couple words we’ve been dying to hear… “swift” and “accomplishment”! Believe it or not, it happened, and we’re off to the races. Before I go into my thoughts and analysis on the new landscape, let’s remember what this really comes down to… OIL. For us to profit off of a rise in value on the currency of Iraq, they must raise the exchange rate. This is a very simple concept - it is a simple matter of market manipulation and if it benefits them and is feasible - they will do it. When the value of IQD plummeted, that was at a time when there was no faith in Iraq’s ability to cover it’s debt. Iraq was a country torn by war, confusion, chaos… it had no leader, it had no way to act as a sovereign nation. Iraq was placed under Chapter 7 by the United Nations, rendered incapable of operating a full military, helpless and dependent on outside help. Without means of protecting themselves, they could not possibly take advantage of their natural resources. They did not have any strength, and they had to go the long road of rebuilding not only their country, but rebuilding the world’s confidence in their ability to buy back their currency and deliver on their contracts. A revaluation of their currency was a long shot in 2008, but it was certainly possible. Now, in 2018, it’s much less of a long shot. In fact, with the complete passage of the HCL, it’s almost a certainty. Back to the present situation: According to the Iraqi Constitution, the new PM has exactly 30 days from taking the role to seat/appoint/select the new GOI. For those of you new to the discussion, that means nothing… if it takes longer than 30 days, nobody is getting hanged, tarred and feathered, or anything else. I expect to see the job 80% done inside the “mandatory” 30 days… … but that 80% is probably enough for the job we need done. We’re looking at a very clear trend. We can trace this all the way back to former Prime Minister Abadi’s assumption of his role as former Prime Minister. He had heavy resistance, but with the support and backing of a (slight) majority of the PTB, he was able to take charge and for quite some time made impressive progress on many things that have propped up Iraq, making it a more stable country than it has been in many decades. Follow recent history over the last couple years, glance at the recent elections, then compare them to the elections that were held over 10 years ago when many Iraqi Dinar holders first heard that there was an opportunity for the Dinar to regain it’s former value… OH. WHAT. A. DIFFERENCE! The recent elections were held, they took their time sorting the votes, and there was no major drama or setbacks. A President was appointed, then a Prime Minister, and STILL no significant upsets or shocking news. Do you see what this says about Iraq? It says that they have control of their systems. They didn’t have to call for help on anything. And that is EXACTLY what we want to see, what the world wants to see, in order to support a revaluation on their currency. This brings us to the present moment, where PM Mahdi is tasked with the job of forming the government. A strong key to the future value of Iraqi Dinar is, as I mentioned earlier, OIL. You know I like to save the good stuff for last! Oh, did I mention that incoming Prime Minister Abdul Mahdi served as OIL MINISTER between 2014 and 2016? That’s right… and he was placed there under Abadi, back when it was Abadi’s job to form the GOI. Even before that, Mahdi was Finance Minister under Allawi back in 2004. This new Prime Minister may not be everyone’s favorite… but he has some very serious credentials, and I think he’s going to play very nice with all of the important people in this process. New President, New PM, solid progress already happening. These events are not random. The people leading the current charge were not pulled out of a hat. I mentioned in a recent update that I feel the “President” is mostly a figurehead, and that’s still my opinion. I’m not going to risk the wrath of President Salih… ah, screw it… he’s a sock puppet. Who am I kidding?! Sorry everyone, I was getting off track and enjoying myself a little much there I’ll get back to the point. This recent election is a ROARING success for Iraq. We have a new President. That issue is settled. The new President picked and named a uniquely qualified Prime Minister so fast that some members here have reported feeling the effects of whiplash. Said new Prime Minister is already showing how capable he is by moving with impressive speed in forming their new government. If this keeps up, we’re looking at progress like we’ve never seen before - the HCL is going to be upon us before we even realize it, and if you aren’t watching for that RV text from me, you might miss it! With all this going on, you can bet I’m redoubling my work behind the scenes to be sure we’re ready for it. I don’t know when that text message will go out, but I’m ready at a moment’s notice… are you? Our VIP group closes to new members IMMEDIATELY on announcement of a revaluation in the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar. You can join here: https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ Just one question from the members this week, and it's a good one: @Synopsis, that is indeed a doozie! I'm glad you linked to the specific post that got you thinking about that. Reading the following articles, and then your post further down that page, is certainly thought provoking. My opinion - there is some meat there. There are also several workarounds, so I won't settle on that being a key factor... but the thought of Shabibi being reintroduced as a key player doesn't turn me off at all! It will be interesting to see if his name comes up in this critical 30 days we are wading through right now. Excellent post, and thanks for sharing your thoughts! In the Crypto forum... is Bitcoin ready to bounce? In the weekly lotto pool... I'm in, are you? That's my "short" summary and thoughts for this morning. Leave your feedback and comments below. GOOOOO RRRVVVVVVV!!!!!

    Good morning and HAPPY HUMP DAY! Today's update is going to be short and sweet, you all know I don't like to use 100 words if 10 will suffice! Short update: October 2nd is a critical date. If you want to just take my word for it, carry on about your life and wait for my email, you can go now. Longer version: (**WARNING! Tin foil hat zone ahead. Proceed with caution!**) We're still slogging through the election/appointment process. I said weeks ago that this wasn't going to be a fast process, but we're nearing the end of it. You'll notice I just added the term "appointment" to the election situation... that's another thing I have been talking about for the last couple months. They made a big deal of "counting and recounting" the "votes", they came to within a very small percentage of accuracy on the ballot totals, so it should have been a no-brainer who the winners were, correct? Ah-ha, nope! Not in this game, my friends! Iraq calls their process a democracy, but anyone with half a brain knows it's not. Take this article, for example: This isn't bad for us. It might be frustrating and unfair to the Iraqi people, the ones who cast their votes and find out later that their vote really didn't matter... but that's the way the world works, and it's just a bit more obvious in Iraq. The good news is that we're nearing the end of this 3 ring circus of Iraqi "elections". A few "winners" will be announced (selected, appointed, anointed, or whatever you want to call it), and progress will resume. I mentioned that October 2nd is a critical date. Here's why: Parliament is set to vote in a President on that date. I have no opinion or real preference on who gets the job of "Head Puppet", but here's some info on one potential. Keep in mind that the "Presidency" is much less important than the Prime Minister seat, in my opinion. I'll link to an opinion piece from a writer who shares my opinion, I think it's a good read. And with the understanding that the entire process is rigged, I'm really looking forward to the very real possibility of a "*SUDDENLY*" event where Abadi retains his seat and this rocketship gets it's fuse lit! That might have been a lot to take in, so feel free to comment with questions and I'll check back in later to clarify my thoughts. My summary today is simple... we could be a short week or two from seeing major events. I'm looking forward to it! That's it for now, friends.... GO RRRRVVVVVV!!!! - Adam P.S. Remember a little over a year ago, when one of the hot topics on the forum was the threat of Kurdistan separating and causing havoc in this whole situation? Remember I said not to worry about it? My opinion is unchanged. Check out this article: P.P.S. Don't forget to join us in the Weekly Lotto Pool!

    ***UPDATE TO POST: We are helping out with Florence. See here: *** Hey hey good morning! It's been another week in the life of a dinar holder, hasn't it? The news is flowing but it's as clear as mud, and dissecting the articles that have been poorly translated by Google or any other source can be a daunting task. Here's the summary: We have two pending issues before we will see an RV. One is a resolution on who, if anyone, will take Abadi's place. I'm feeling more and more confident that Abadi may very well retain his position, and that's a great feeling! Without getting too deep into it, because I've certainly spent a fair amount of time on this topic over the last couple months, I feel like he's a great option for the country and it would be much more expedient for our purposes if he were to retain his seat. The other issue, of course, is HCL. There are some rumors floating around that it is "done"... I have not seen any evidence to back that up, and that's my stance. Steady progress has been made, but until the first item is cleared up we really cannot expect anyone to stick their necks out and "get it done". Until they know where the money is going, they aren't going to be signing any deals! And until they have a new PM locked in, they can't be certain where the money is going to go. It's as simple as that. As far as a "timeline" on this situation... I don't know. It could be a week, or a month, or more. But they will not go forever without an official sitting Prime Minister, so as soon as that is settled, that is when we can expect things to move forward. Items of note: 1. I like progress. It appears that the Speaker role has been filled. Good news there! Keep up the good work, Iraq... check those items off the list until we're ready for launch. 2. Did you wake up today with a strong desire to bang your head into a wall? An overwhelming desire to be confused and lost? This might be the page for you to read! Be sure to get in the Weekly Powerball pool! You can't win if you don't play Here are the Weekly Q's from the members: I'm not sure what the question is. Hey Ron, thanks for the post. I still think we are in a promising situation right now! "How" they are selling oil is exactly why they need the HCL in place. Without the HCL in place, their entire process is antiquated and inefficient, and prone to argument about profit sharing. Once the HCL is finalized, they can focus on other things... that's why it's so important. So, the answer is this: poorly, inefficiently, and not meeting their potential. I'm sure they'd love to, but their power is limited. No concerns there in my opinion. "Why" is it taking so long to implement a new PM? It's Iraq I don't feel you are overstepping at all. You were around for our Dominica drive... I'm not a fan of just handing money over. If you recall, thanks to the efforts and contributions of the members on this site, I actually went to Dominica myself with over $10,000 in supplies and delivered them to a couple of worthy and capable organizations a few years back. Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to travel to the Carolinas to help out right now... so I'll do the next best thing and show some financial support. Can you please give me a direct link to the most efficient place to donate money to? No direct insight on that particular article, sorry bud! Thank you for your generosity and support to Rod's question. I'll be doing the same. Check out my response to Rod above - I'll be sending out an email regarding that in the next days. ============= That's it for this morning, friends! I'll be in touch soon. - Adam

    Adam Montana Weekly 5 September 2018

    Morning all! Couple items to note, and then we move on for the day because the short story is this: Iraq is still plodding through the formation of the new Government. Watching the GOI work could be described as similar to watching grass grow, although with the rain I’m getting right now… I think my lawn would win that race! Something to keep in mind, and this is a good thing - as slow as things seem to be moving, Iraq in general has made light years of progress compared to where they were a decade ago. Their processes are greatly improved. The debates are much more structured, not confused and uncertain as they were 5 or 10 years ago. There is an end in sight, so my point here is simple… don’t lose hope, be patient, and let things happen. Those items of note that I mentioned: We all know that “dates” aren’t worth a hill of beans in the world of IQD, but we do have the 15th/17th to look at: Getting back to the basics of what makes Iraq a solid candidate for ReValuation, don’t forget that they are RICH with Black Gold… OIL. The world runs on that stuff, Iraq has a ton of it, which means they have intrinsic value that cannot be denied. The CBI has announced that they are also adding to their “other” Gold, to the tune of an additional 6.5 tons. I’ll save you the trouble of doing the math… 6.5 tons = 208,000 ounces. Gold is about $1200 per ounce right now, so that’s a value of $249,600,000. (Obviously a little less due to wholesale value, but it’s a lot of money!) Not too shabby of a report for the day, and it shows increasing strength. Good stuff! While the GOI formation is dragging on, Abadi continues to be a positive factor. No matter who is “named” the next President, I think he will continue to be a driving force in the next phases of Iraq’s development and return to their former status. Make no mistake about this - Iraq suffered a huge setback with Saddam. They have had a long road to make it this far, and the next steps for them should be pretty apparent to anyone that isn’t a complete pessimist. Just a couple more notes and I’m out of here for now! You probably noticed some changes on the “look” of the forums here - these are not security issues, they are simply theme complications that are being worked through. The latest security updates on the forum software conflicted with a couple things like the ads that usually run on the site for non-VIP members, and security is more important than ad revenue, so everyone is currently getting an ad-free experience. For now Enjoy it while it lasts, then upgrade to VIP if the ads annoy you when they come back! I’ve seen my name mentioned in some threads regarding rubies (downvotes)... I’m not going to respond to those any more than I already have. A ruby on your post doesn’t affect your bank account or your love life, so just suck it up, buttercup. I didn’t get to check the Weekly Q’s, I’ll do that later… … in the meantime, don’t forget to join the weekly PowerBall Pool! Here’s the link: Talk to you all later, be patient, be positive and GOOO RRRR VVVVVVV!!!!

    Happy Wednesday all! Is it Groundhog Day? It certainly seems like it, especially after the following: We're still waiting on election results. That's a bummer for everyone waiting on some groundbreaking news, but for most of us... we understand the process, and because we're nearing the end of this chapter, it's not too hard to be patient (for just a LITTLE bit longer!). It's almost mind-boggling to look at the situation and try to understand how it can take them so long to count up a couple of ballots, but that's the way it is. Here's an article that is interesting: As @Pitcher mentioned, it's an Iranian source. Which might mean everything, or nothing. Either way, we're still waiting for the official end of the elections, and until that's done... we are in limbo. One other thing of interest that was posted by @Synopsis is this: I don't put a lot of weight on the CBI auctions, but in this case... it's certainly interesting! Also interesting is this: Why would Iraq be investing in US Treasuries? That's a good question, and I think the answer is obvious - both the US and Iraq are going forward in a positive direction, so it's a smart play. We are on the smart side of that play, and here's the best part: I don't have to beat that drum - Iraq is doing it for me. GO RVVVVVVVV!!!! That's it for the weekly - I'm working on a couple things for the VIP members (if you're involved in the dual citizenship program, you'll have an email from me later this afternoon!), so I'm going to get back to that and wish you all a happy Wednesday. "Compliance ratio" sounds like a made-up term... the CBI doesn't need to answer to anyone. When they are ready to raise their "BUY" rate, that is what they do. End of story. I don't participate in kneeling games, pre or post season. Your disgust is shared here! Hey eburt, I understand your frustration. For the record, I do believe that we are in the final stretch. It may seem like they have been kicking the can down the road, but when you stop to examine all the details, it really makes sense. If they had Revalued their currency in 2013, or 14, it would have been a disaster! They didn't have the infrastructure, the stability, or anything else they needed to make it a success. Today, we're in a different boat. NOW it is possible, and before it was not. We're looking at about a 30 day cycle right now, IMO. THIS is the reason I'm so excited right now! You are 100% correct - the HCL (OIL AND GAS!) can be implemented at any time! ANY TIME! I need a flippin seat belt on my office chair when I start talking about this - THIS - exact subject!!! (Where is the "biting my fingers" emoji?!?!?!) Sanctions of this kind always have effects. I don't see any major negative impacts, though. That's my November is the far outside, but it is possible. GO PACK GO!

    Happppppy Wednesday all! The goons in charge over in Iraq are still grinding through the last stages of the elections. For me, this is the worst part of doing updates... when there's nothing to report! I could make a long post about nothing, but instead I'm going to link to what I posted in last week's update: Here is the best news I can share: Nothing seems out of place in the process. News is consistent and "as expected". And the best of the best... this is temporary. That's right - there is an end in sight. Here's what we're looking at, pulled from a couple articles posted earlier... That's annoying to read, but if we've learned anything from Iraq... we've learned patience. Is this a popular vote vs. electoral college type of conversation yet? It certainly could be! We all know by now that none of the fluff published by the Iraqi media is meant to be taken literally and none of it is carved in stone. All we can truly know about this situation is that there will be an end result, and they aren't going to give us a specific date that we can count on. No big deal. I agree with this one completely - the formation of this government IS "particularly important", for Iraq to continue moving forward. I believe they are going to get it right this time, and the future looks bright for them. ... and according to the horse's mouth, none of this means anything We will know soon enough how it's all shaken out. Patience, my friends. That's all we can do, just be patient. With that said, I'm personally going to take a deep breath... relax for a minute, and get to the weekly Q's. ... .... ... apparently I'm not the only one feeling this! It's coming, friends! Check out my comments from last week and also the week before. "Lop"... that's actually a word I haven't ran across in a while! I don't see any significant chance of a lop. My opinion and my expectation is that at a point in the near future, we are going to realize a gain on the dinar. Whether it's a 💥 RV or just a floating increase, I'm very confident that gains will be had! Regarding the election results, the problem is in the technical details... regardless of who took the most votes, the entire thing is open to interpretation, subterfuge, and even flat out rigging. I think this guy is on the committee... And of course, don't forget the Weekly Lotto Pool! That's it for now... not forever, but definitely for now!

    Adam Montana Weekly 1 August 2018

    Morning all! We have a pretty simple update for this morning - we're at the tail end of the "counting" of the recent election results. Abadi is still leading in a proactive manner, but there is no way to predict how things will shake out over the coming days. Will there be any surprise appointments? If so, who? Perhaps more interestingly... will a new leader start off with a bang? Introducing a new rate would certainly be a way to win a LOT of friends... who is really going to complain about something like that, if it's done swiftly? If you're interested in the juiciest details... I'd suggest starting with this article: We certainly have a lot of potential in the coming days! I'm hanging on to my hat for sure. Here are the weekly Q's from some members: That's a good idea, I can do that! Use coupon code "newGOI" for 26% off any VIP package. No real reason for 26%, other than we've never done that amount before... but new GOI definitely has a place here! Also, VIPs - stand by for an update this weekend. We have some "behind the scenes" projects coming up. Use the discount here: http://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ Ok, you are right - that was a bit rambling! But you made some good references there. Saudi Arabia has a major influence, but they don't control global shipping routes unilaterally. Any pushback, from ANYwhere, that hinders Iraq and their business (OIL), is probably good for us because it encourages Iraq to move forward on their issues (HCL, GOI, everything). On that note, we can see that a potential negative factor can easily lead to a positive result. HODLers of dinar and Iran... there's another interesting aspect! One topic that came through our crypto section recently was regarding Iran being forced to use cryptocurrency due to the sanctions on them. Without expressing any support for Iran here, it's notable that any and all adoption and usage of cryptos is positive for the general growth of crypto in general. (Yes, I know! This is a "dinar" forum. It's also a crypto forum. Deal with it ) The website says you're a newbie because of your postcount, not your join date! I understand your disappointment in the lack of news recently... the fact of the matter is Iraq has accomplished 98% of what they need to do, and we are at the point where any day could be the day! That sounds like a good thing to me! Cheers Synopsis! Thanks for the feedback and the compliments, we all appreciate your posts as well! The general way of doing business in Iraq does require an official Gazette publication for some things to be finalized, but we know that if the CBI says tomorrow that they are exchanging at a new rate... that's the day it becomes official, and we won't be waiting for a newspaper to hit the doorsteps. I hate to simply dismiss something as seemingly important as a this... but in this case, Iraq is in charge of their own wallet and they will act on an RV when they are ready, not when the IMF gives approval or they get a "better than B-" rating from Fitch. And of course, as long as you're eligible... get in the Powerball pool!

    Adam Montana Weekly 18 July 2018

    Happy Wednesday everyone! Dinar first - We’re still in the same situation as late last week (did you notice I did a drive-by follow-up to my analysis here?) - Abadi is moving forward “as-if” the elections were over, and that’s a good thing. Its NOT a good thing for those of you that want an RV by Friday, because it’s pretty apparent that we’re a couple short weeks away from an official announcement of the next complete GOI. All things hinge on GOI right now… wrap that up, then we have a clear path to HCL, and then, dare I say “suddenly”? The news can be overwhelming, so just take a minute to read a couple articles here: That should get you caught up. This 2 week timeline ties in very nicely with another topic that is very close to my interests… cryptocurrency! Crypto is certainly getting fun again. BTC is up about 10% over the last 24 hours following a barrage of positive news in/around the cryptosphere. I personally don’t spend a lot of time “day trading” pretty much anything, but I do have a solid network of people that have been making an absolute killing over the years just buying the dips and selling for profit… and they are barely able to formulate full sentences with all the excitement bubbling out of them right now! If you ever needed yet another reason to get in our VIP group here, crypto news and discussion is definitely on the list now and is poised to move MUCH higher in all of our newsfeeds. This is something you really do NOT want to wait until it’s “too late” to get involved with… hop over to the crypto section in VIP now and get involved! Here’s the link to our Crypto Section: http://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/forum/61-cryptocurrencies-blockchain-bitcoin-etc/ Here’s one in specific that is VERY interesting: And here’s the link to join VIP (if you’re not a member already): http://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-vip-membership-packages/ Here's the weekly Qs: Another day, another riot... I don't think it's significant in the big picture. Concerning, at least in a humanitarian sense? Of course. But revaluing a world currency is an event of incredible magnitude that makes those riots look like a small brush fire with no chance of doing more than taking out an old barn. No news is good news, at least sometimes... we're on the right track! I wouldn't call that a lop - it was a devaluation. Their currency, and their "stock" in the world, simply lost value. A revalue upwards will simply recapture that value. Not all of it. But a significant amount. And that's why we are here. My finger is on the button!!!!! $68 is still higher than the $50 they were at, and that price is well within what Iraq needs to be well oiled and smooth running. Mid $70 ppb prices do not bother me at all! I don't think so. I think they are going to keep taking these freebie loans as long and as much as possible, especially pre-RV. Post-RV, their "eligibility" will be different, but it will not affect their repayment obligations. I call that "smart business". ======================= That's it for now my friends... stay grounded, stay positive, and GO RVVVVVV!!!!

    Happy Wednesday everyone! Today's update is going to be delayed a bit - I just had a couple of interesting items cross my desk that I need to research. I'll edit this post and add below a little later. Hope you're all enjoying the summer! ------------------- // UPDATE BELOW // ----------------------- First, the bad news - I leads on some JUICY HCL news, but I'm not able to verify 100%, so... that will stay in my back pocket for a bit. The good news - I have been able to verify SOME of what I was looking into, and without going too deep - it's related to a post that Yota just put up for us. Here's one piece I found to be very relevant: Here's where my thought process is going, and I am getting more confident in this on a daily basis. Iraq is stillll going over election results from what seems to be ages ago... this is no different than most other election years, except this time there seems to be a LOT less drama, accusations, etc. Sure, there is still a bit of finger pointing... but this is NOTHING like what we've seen in the past. One example that stands out very brightly is the first Maliki vs Abadi race. There was basically kicking and screaming about those results! But at the end of the day, it all cleared up and we were left with Abadi for a few years. IMO that was a great thing! Now... it is being announced that we're maybe a couple weeks from a true resolution and seating of both sides, and despite what would have historically been a time of extreme uncertainty, that's not what I'm seeing and hearing. Quite the opposite, in fact. Given that lack of turmoil, coupled with the above quoted sentences, that gives me confidence that the Kurdish side is going to emerge as very confident in their position, the GOI in general is going to be moving in short order, and some of these HCL rumors I'm hearing are going to be surfacing. That means we're getting close to a real window of opportunity! Stay grounded, because the next couple weeks might just surprise a lot of us. VIP members, I hope you've been patient with cryptos... there was a major run / manipulation on the entire cryptosphere earlier in the year that led to the decline in pricing to where it is now. But with crypto hanging on, and continuing to advance, there's still a GREAT chance that "to the moon" is still on the table! Check out this clip I posted earlier today: We only had a couple weekly Q's. Here they are: No, it did not. HCL at this time - it's completely political. Everything I discussed above is directly related to the delay on the HCL, and that's coming to an end quickly. TG is still around, I think I just beat her to it a couple weeks in a row --------- ---------- ----------- That's it for now friends... Stay tuned, there will be more! I'm excited to see this chapter conclude and see some HCL news in the coming weeks. Can't be far off now!

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

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

    Morning all! Ramadan is less than 2 days from being over. That means we're less than 2 days away from OUR little vacation being over as well, and I'm personally excited to see how things go! I'm not anticipating an immediate RV, but rather a steady progression of news related to the recent elections, followed by more OIL related news, then HCL, and THEN we will be in the "zone". This may take another month to get stars aligned, or it may be a mad rush... either way, I'm getting busy here at the office in preparation for whatever is coming. GOOO RRRVVVVVVVV!!!! Oil news is steady right now. GOI news is stable. For all intents and purposes, Abadi is moving forward in a pretty strong leadership fashion - I like it! And of course, there's always the weekly DV lotto pool! You can't win if you don't play. I'm saving some other stuff for Post-Ramadan, depending on how the news goes you may hear from me in a couple days. Don't be surprised. Have a great day, everyone!

    Afternoon all! This one will be short as well... not as short as last week, but short nonetheless! We are a mere week away from the end of Ramadan, and judging by the current events, this may be the most explosive (I probably shouldn't use that word, but oh well) "end of Ramadan" we've ever seen. Things are happening. None of it really matters until they push the button, but we all know that any news is better than no news. I don't think I've ever seen a Ramadan as busy as this one, in terms of newsworthy events. One item that I will expand on is the Elections - there is a lot of confusion about the Prime Minister seat. Did Abadi retain power, or not? I could get into my personal opinion, but that will change over the next week, so there's no point in belaboring it. Instead, just take a look at this page: If there was ONE thing I'd say to keep an eye on right now, that is probably it. Until that's settled, I don't see any progress happening with HCL or really anything else, so - we will watch. That's it for now. Have a great day and hang in there!

    Afternoon all! It's still Ramadan. The end.

    Morning all! A lot of members here have commented on my absence lately. I’ve kept my fingers on the pulse of this all, so don’t worry! It’s amazing what kind of havoc 2’ of snow in April with freezing rain mixed in can do! I’ll just say my physical life was absolutely bonkers for a couple weeks due to the recent blizzard, and it kept me offline quite a bit. Thankfully THAT is over and spring weather is FINALLY here for real! Nothing compares to the feeling of lightness that comes over you when the perennials finally start poking through the frost and the first robins land in your yard… not that you southerners would understand that! Anyway, moving onto Iraq - I don’t see anything happening in the next two weeks. Parliament is basically shut down until after elections (May 12), so if I were you - I’d take a break from Dinar news for the next couple weeks. Just don’t shut your phone off! There’s always a chance that a secret meeting or something like that will take place and surprise us. That’s what I’d do if I was you. Unfortunately for me, I am NOT you so I’ll be taking advantage of the next couple weeks to go over Post RV planning and make sure everything is tip-top. There will be no update next week (May 2) unless something changes with Parliament in the meantime. Here’s the weekly Q’s: =========== Edit: ============ We had a MAJOR security upgrade on the forums this morning and it set me back a couple hours. I'll get to the weekly Q's a little later. As with any upgrade, there are bound to be small issues here and there... please report them here or via the support system if you find any.
