Adam Montana weekly - 7 January 2015

Recommended Posts

Morning everyone!
 
Things just keep getting better! The budget was read today, as planned. It's 
possible to have a decision as soon as tomorrow, but there is no official vote 
scheduled that I know of... either way, when Iraq meets deadline after deadline 
after deadline after a decade of postponements and delays, you know it's time 
to put on a smile!
 
 
We already know that we have an HCA, and they are already talking about making 
that an HCL. Again, moving quickly and making solid progress.

 army03 Just waiting on the text.  No more question it's clear :bravo: Thanks AM.

 

 

:twothumbs:


 Deb45 We are soooooo close!
So when you do send us all a text.....How is this all going to go down.  (the chronology of it all)

 

 

1. Text message sent to everyone that has the service

2. Specific instructions sent to VIP members

3. General email sent to everyone on the email list

 

 countryroads   Hi Adam.  No question, just a short statement.
I'm sure by now that you've had a chance to read the post of someone else trying to correct your answers to last chat.  Adam we have come too far together, and in the process have rooted out these people. I just want to say that I am with you till the end ,if it ends up .10 or $1.00. Keep up the good work you are doing and let's ride this train to the bank.
My opinion and I hope it is the same as everyone else's.
Go RV

 

 

I glanced at it... apparently someone is so desperate for attention they are answering questions that weren't even asked of them? :lol:
 
I don't waste my time on stuff like that.
 
:tiphat:
 

M. Incredible Let me start by saying that I have been a member here since 2011. I was more active back then but just because I haven't posted or responded in the past couple years I still come here all the time for my dinar info fix. This site IS the place to be and I am proud to be a member here.
 
On with the question.
 
I currently hold physical notes along with electronic. When we do experience an RV, when will the IRS see this as income? At the time of the rate increase or at the time I decide to cash in?
 
My concern is with the electronic dinar, Will that be taxed according to it's initial RV'd value or the (hopefully increased) value at the end of the 2015 if I let it ride to the end of the year? or will I only be taxed on it when I decide to convert it to USD regardless of when I decide? What I'm really asking is will I need to convert enought IQD into USD to cover all appropriate taxes of the entire electronic account value and transfer that back into the US to cover my liability? I know a foreign account is a gamble. I'm just concerned with getting the enough funds back into the US to pay the taxes in a timely manner.
 
Hope this line of questioning makes sense. I wrote it and I'm still a bit confused by it..... :) Since this is my first question (ever) I hope you can forgive my lack of, I mean the way I, Uhmm.....  the phrasing of the..... what's the word...... oh yeah, words...
 
Again, Thank you and your mods for running a fantastic site!

 

 

Ah, TAX questions! I'm not giving financial or tax advice here, just stating my opinion:

 

I believe you are referring to ISX/Warka when you say "electronic", correct? If so, I have to assume it will work exactly like stocks in your Sharebuilder or Scottrade account... you pay the taxes on them when you realize the gain, which doesn't happen until you sell them or cash out your account.

Jaygo  Cowboys on Sunday.. Not sure how happy I am about that. So if we win that means an automatic RV the next day in Dallas correct??? It's a valid question right?? 

 

 

Yes. :lol:
 
 securityguy  Adam; I have been around a little while. Watching and listening mostley. Out of all the possible results we have before us, the most logical openion to me seems that we will see a slight movement in the Dinar value. I am talking pennies at a time increase in value. Over time that will continue. Maybe after at least a year of small movements the value will arrive to where some may consider cashing in. For anyone wanting to cash in when the value reaches 1 to 1 we could be looking at possibly three years or more. That is the way I see it really happening. How say you Adam?.

 

 

It's very possible to happen that way. If it does, I'm not going to complain. The only people that will be seriously disappointed at that type of RV are the ones who expect $13 by Monday every week.

 


Hellifiknow  Adam. If I didn't have the email coming from you on the rate change, how would I know? As in do you think it will be on the nightly news "Iraq is back " maybe spun as all the billions we spent freeing them from a dictator was worth it. Maybe in a way that says...now they can PAY US BACK !  Just make the news...
I am glad I have my email coming from you !!
Go rv

 

 

It will definitely be on the news. If you go through the archives, whenever the major news stations do a segment on the Dinar they are always careful to not rule out the possibility of an RV, so when they do get to announce it they won't have to admit they were wrong.
 
:twocents:
 
 Texstorm   Great Job Adam ! My question to you is, If Iraq continues at a 1166 exchange rate  while pumping roughly $18,000,000,000 a year in oil revenues, will that give them enough money to facilitate all of the re-building projects that are needed, and I guess the other thing that I'm looking for why would they RV given all of their outstanding debt.

 

 

I'm not sure what exact re-building projects are "needed", so I won't answer that one. But regarding "all of their outstanding debt" - there's not that much left now that half the world has forgiven and they've repaid so much over the last 10 years! I'm sorry, but I don't agree that either of those points is sufficient to stop them from raising the value of their currency.

 

I gave a long list of reasons I believe the value can and should be higher in my book RV Intel, so I won't list them all here again. 

 

I hear it's a good read! Get it if you haven't already. :twothumbs:


calkid11   Hello Adam & Mods any news yet about the HCL being done?
Thank you
Hope you all had a good New Years

 

 

Yep! Check the link in my first post. :twothumbs:

 stealthwarrior  Adam,do you see a true end in sight for this adventure?
 

 

 

It's been a long time since I felt comfortable using the word "soon", but yes - I think this is coming to an end SOON.

 

 labdog  Happy New Year to you Adam and everyone reading this :twothumbs: I have been a holder of this currency since 2004 when I saw the first full page add in USA today!  Interestingly enough I took a speculative risk and bought 1/2 million to start. My holdings have increased over the last 10 years and without any real gains. I have been a follower of your posts since your start and I am a VIP as well. (VIP questions removed)
 
Hi labdog,
 
I'm happy to answer your questions but please take them to the VIP section. :tiphat:

 boosterbglee   Packers 21  Cowboys 17
Do you agree, King Cheese?   :cheesehead:

 Jrose  Hi Adam, I have a two questions for you today.  One, do you think the low gas prices as of late would give speculation that Iraqi will RV soon?
Second, my father has been skeptical of the Iraqi Dinar from the begenning and he has asked me the question, where will the trillions of dollars come from when a RV occurs (let's say it revalues at 50 cents :twothumbs: ) when people cash in the Dinars?  Thanks and good luck to the Packers!!

 

 

I'm not here to try to convince people like your father - some people simply refuse to see the possibilities here. But for the benefit of the members, I'll still answer.

 

The price of oil doesn't have anything to do with "if" or "when" they RV, but it could have an impact on the RV amount. We'll just have to wait and see what they do with that one. 

 

Regarding where the money comes from to cover the increased value, that's easy. Think about the US - when we borrow a few billion from China, China doesn't actually send us a boatload of physical cash. It's the same thing with Iraq - they won't be handing out physical cash to cover your currency. 

 

That's the beauty (and shame) of all fiat currencies like the Dinar or the USD. As long as the world will accept Iraq's promise to honor the value they state their currency is worth, that's all that matters. Iraq has vast amounts of liquid gold, their production keeps increasing, they continue to make positive progress with their government, etc etc... all that adds up to bolster their credit-worthiness.

 

:twothumbs:

 

 
Caye98  These certainly seem to be exciting times for holders of IQD! Add to that we can now not only have Adam answer our questions, but we can also wait for someone to steal the questions asked of Adam and post a video from under a rock somewhere answering questions no one has asked of him (but I digress...)
Having read numerous articles about the Iraqi Parliament having the second reading of the 2015 Budget proposal today [7/1/2015] and reports of Article 140 being approved/included to satisfy the Kurds, (and realizing that this is Iraq we are talking about so anything is possible) I am still unclear if once the Budget has been read a 2nd time what is the legal/anticipated time frame for acceptance? If I understand correctly, until it is published in the Gazette it is not law? If this is the case, what is/should the required time frame for the budget to become past and accepted a law? A simple reference to a number below is fine...
1. It can be passed immediately after the 2nd reading...  :backflip:
2. They must wait at least 4 more days (Possibly Sunday 11 January)... 
3. They must wait at least 20+ days for comment and a final vote...  :rolleyes:
4. It is easier/more certain to guess the outcome of Packers vs Cowboys  :lol:
 
Thank you and Happy New Year!  

 

 

4!!!
 
In all seriousness, there is no law or rule that they can't circumnavigate in order to make things happen, so it's hard to open up the Iraqi Rulebook and point to a specific section that will give us an exact date. :shrug:
 
 
 Cosmicndn   Thank you Adam for all you do. Question: The backing of the economy in Iraq is petroleum. Not so much textile or grain or whatever manufacturing other countries have. With a petroleum based economy do you think it would affect an RV? I think that is captain obvious stuff but the timing of an RV could or should it be delayed with a low per barrel price? Thoughts? I'm thinking America's team btw! lol

 

That's a good question. I actually read an article this morning on something Warren Buffett said - there's no point in trying to "time the market" - the smart thing to do is simply make good investments. I thought about the dinar on two levels after I read that.

 

1. Although we aren't "timing" this thing, we did have a specific timeframe to get in - aka Pre-RV. If we didn't know anything about the Iraqi Dinar before the RV, we'd be hearing about it on the morning news and then it would already be too late.

 

2. The price of oil will have an effect on how high they can RV, but for them to try to wait for oil to go back up would be foolish for exactly the reason Warren Buffett gave. I believe Iraq is smart enough to understand that concept... so their smart play would simply be if they were going to RV at $1 with $100 per barrel oil, then they simply RV at .50 with $50 per barrel oil.

 

That's my 2 pennies on it!

 


 countryroads   Adam.  Was curious on your take for this. Today when I drove into town (western Ohio) I noticed that all the gas stations had raised their prices by about .30 cents a gallon. Are the oil prices starting to raise or was this just a local increase? I have no other information except the price increase.
Thanks.
GO RV

 

 

I don't know what's going on in your town, but it sounds like a conspiracy! AAA reports today that the national average is still 6 cents lower than a week ago!
 
=====================================
 
That's it for today - good questions everyone!
 
Keep an eye on that budget and HCL news, and I'll catch you next time.

Thanks Adam!  Love your take on this. I'm just encouraged that you broke down and used the "S" word.

 

Let's see how long it takes the other gurus to twist your words saying that you predicted a .50 cent RV because of the low price of oil (Oh...THAT would NEVER happen... :wacko:  :blink:  )

 

Here't to my second favorite team having a great game!!! (My favorite team is the Seahawks - my second favorite team is who ever is playing the Cowboys...)

Thanks for the fix Sir Adam. So RV anytime between 1/7/2015 and 2/28/15? Is Ewingm banned for life or just for a little bit? I know he/she is human and entitled to whatever but I vote for a lifetime ban. He had more than 2 probation periods and still didn't learn. JMHO.

      Good morning, and Happy Wednesday!
       
      Warning: This Weekly Update is coming in like a lamb and going out like a lion.
       
      Before we get into it, I want to thank you all for being the best dang group of people I've ever been associated with. Please know that I never take you for granted, and time after time you impress me with your heart and character - as evidenced time and again, in particular by the incredible outpouring of love, respect, and goodness in last week's update.
       
      Cheers to you all, God bless, and thank you.
       
       
       
      Lots of talk lately about the new PM (KaZAMi-Kablammie-Kademi-KaJustRValready!), exchange rate talk, the US pulling out of Iraqi bases, and of course - "more".
       
      There was a time when there wasn't much "more", but lately things are picking up steam - Parliament blazing through tasks, the newly appointed PM seems to almost have entered the scene un-noticed. What I mean by that is the last couple PMs were met with fierce opposition, riots, and outcry. I don't think for a minute that the Iraqi people are done fighting or they have lost their spirit - the fact that Kazammie is still in office, with no reports of (major) riots or protests, is an indicator that he could be "the one". 
       
      A key part of the "more" is the Iraqi Budget, which is looming on the horizon. The Budget is a big deal, but do NOT expect to see an RV rate in it - in fact, I place very little importance on the Budget numbers. What IS important and relevant is a successful conclusion and announcement of the Budget. That can only happen when the bobbleheads in Parliament actually meet, pull out their pens, and sign the agreement. When that happens, it shows that Iraq is doing something positive, moving forward, and clearing the table for bigger items.
       
      The fact that Oil is returning to normal and sustainable price levels... well, that's just gravy.
       

       
      I'm not the only person who looks at that chart and feels hungry! 
       
      One other component I think we need to keep on the radar is still the HCL. While we are seeing a lot of positive news on many other fronts, the HCL seems... suspiciously quiet.
       
      Over the last few weeks, I've been noticing a trend. The news pieces that I am privileged to share and break down for you all have not been the "simple and sometimes boring" topics that have plagued us for months at a time in the recent past.
       
      On the contrary, I've been finding that much of the news and the key parts of this complicated web of information are challenging to piece together. It's led to a few "doozies" lately... the recent post on the Iraqi Budget is a good example. That one took a lot of editing and deleting and starting over to break it down into a manageable post that wouldn't make people's eyes glaze over.
       
      Based on the responses from the community, I feel it was worth the time.
       
      As the year 2020 is progressing, I am seeing more and more information that is stitching together in very complex ways. It makes my "job" a bit harder, but also more satisfying... and it will be even more satisfying when all of these things meet up at the end.
       
      The HCL (Hydro Carbon Law) is extremely important. It covers a few things, perhaps most importantly is the money-sharing arrangement that it provides. I may do a longer explanation on this soon, but for this post I'll just state that Oil, the Transportation of Oil, the price of Oil, the intrinsic connection between Oil and Iraq's economy... this is a short list of why the HCL is important.
       
      The Middle East as a whole is a major producer of oil. Anything that is produced, and sold, needs to be transported to the consumer. While Iraq only has a small piece of the land that accesses the Gulf of Persia, they do have a sizable and important piece of the land that connects many paths that Oil must cross, and the HCL is vital to forward progress.
       
      Hang on to your seat as you read through this next bit:
       
      The recent Iran-Turkey pipeline incident, courtesy of the PKK (Kurds), is certainly going to have an affect... particularly since Turkey seems to not want anything to do with fixing it. This incident hurts Iran more than anyone, benefits Iraq, and Turkey comes out better as well - both politically, financially, and in terms of future positioning.
       
      That also comes back full circle to the HCL - eliminating Iran from the equation is a benefit to Iraq, and the HCL will be used to ensure that the Kurds get a larger portion of these benefits.
       
      Once again, when you look at the big picture it starts to make sense "why" the RV didn't happen yet. The dominoes have been being placed, one at a time, and the HCL just might be the force that starts them moving.
       
      I encourage everyone to read the links I posted in the above text. Piece that all together in your head, and get in VIP, because things are about to start happening REALLY FAST.
       
      GO HCL.
       
      GO RV.
       
      Best regards, all! Have a fantastic day and stay safe.
       
       
       
      - Adam
       
      P.S. If you hadn't noticed, I've been linking the relevant articles a lot lately instead of quoting them. This might be a little more work on your part to completely understand my posts, but I've received a lot of positive feedback from members as well. Feel free to chime in and let me know which you prefer!

      Good morning good morning!
       
      Wednesday, 13th of May - Year of the 'Rona. The year we saw historic losses in the financial markets, the first time OIL ever (ever) hit negative numbers, and the world changed in ways some of us never believed would happen.
       
      Everywhere we go now, things are slightly-to-a-lot different.
       
      Plexiglass sneeze guards at every store register, shower curtains between tables at restaurants in our future, sporting events without fans, and this is only the start.
       
      With unemployment at the worst since the Depression, possibly worse to come, and the government printing money like... well, like they usually do, just a little faster. The truth is that all of the events we are witnessing were bound to happen eventually - the "pandemic" simply expedited some of it.
       
      The US debt column has been on a steady incline, and that was not going to reverse. A world where we have a "responsible government" and a "balanced budget" is nothing more than wishful thinking. 
       
      The good news?
       
      It doesn't matter.
       
      I mean that. It simply does not matter. We can complain all we want, but since the US Dollar went off the gold standard and became full fiat, we have been playing with pretend money, valued by nothing more than our imaginations.
       
      Yes, we can buy actual food with our dollars. We can trade these same dollars for a roof over our head and a vehicle to get us places.
       
      If we had looked at our crystal ball last year and invested in Netflix, or shorted travel related stocks, we'd be sitting fairly pretty! The interesting thing about wealth, and power, and luxury and money and toys and tools is that they are never really "lost" - they just get transfered, in a never ending shell game. There will always be winners, and losers, and much of that is decided on where you are when the dice are rolled.
       
      Iraq is no different. The currency of Iraq is no different than the currency of any other fiat based country - it's made up, yet the uses are real. 
       
      And unlike COVID19... we are fully prepared for this one! (At least most of us are prepared - are you?)
       
      In the news:
       
      Iraqi Prime Minister Kazemi (RV-KAZAMMY!!!!!) is on a roll, moving things forward and acting in every way we want! 
       
      In years past, not much was accomplished during Ramadan.
       
      This year, the Year of the 'Rona and much more - that does not appear to be the case!
       
      We are currently in the midst of Ramadan, yet Kazemi seems dead set on seating his cabinet before the end of the holiday. And, it actually looks like it's going to happen. That link was from four days ago, and then yesterday we see PM al-Kazemi reconfirming his commitment to wrapping this portion up in "the next few days".
       
      There is more, of course! There always is - I could spend hours tagging and writing and expanding on all of the positive momentum the Iraqi Dinar has right now, and it would just be a start.
       
      Fast work by Kazemi is awesome. Iraq having a Prime Minister stay seated and continue to impress us is an outstanding report. This could never have happened overnight, but the way things are going - I dare say "suddenly" is looming closer and closer.
       
       
       
      Bitcoin is in an interesting spot - the halvening happened, and BTC is currently hovering near $10,000. In my opinion, there is still time to get in while it's still cheap. You CAN buy a fraction of a bitcoin, which means you can put $100 or $1000 into it. Coinbase is an easy option.
       
      VIP is still open. You can NOT buy a fraction of a VIP package  but at $49 for 3 months, you can get in and be prepared for about 54 pennies a day. It's the smart move, get in now!
       
      The Weekly Powerball Pool is here - join us!
       
      As always - be safe, be happy, be free, and GOOOO RRRRVVVV!!!!!

      Happy Wednesday, gang!
       
      This week seems to be off to a great start!
       
      The COVID ('Rona) scare is on the decline, but now we have Murder Hornets, and... will it ever end?!
       
      No. So let's move on, live life, love our families, and be happy.  
       
      On to the topics!
       
      DJIA, S&P, GOLD, pretty much everything is up, including OIL... and that is music to our ears!
       
      Over in Iraq, we have a "still waters run deep" situation... do you remember all the ruckus that was in the news during the short durations of the previous Prime Ministers?
       
      I'm not hearing the same level of noise right now.
       
      Al-Kazemi, the current figurehead for the position, seems to just be on cruise control. He's zooming down the political highway and there doesn't seem to be much getting in his way. Check out this thread for the latest developments:
       
       
      Of course there is talk of disruption, but what's not being publicized is the actual progress - and there is plenty!
       
      It gets better:

      It is nice read something like that, but what they are NOT saying is much more important than what they ARE saying.
       
      Things are actually really good!
       

       
      In spite of my current optimism, we are at a critical point - things may turn in our favor quickly, and if they are going to turn right now... it is going to happen quickly, probably in the middle of our night, and without warning.
       
      They aren't going to give us too much of a head start, so we wait patiently and vigilantly.
       
      I'm ready to send emails and text messages!
       
      Last week we had a thread in the VIP section for member feedback, and it's given me a bit to work on. I'll be sending out some VIP emails as that progresses.
       
       
       
      A few more notes before I wrap this up for now:
       
      1. Ever hear of Kim Clement? Check this out!
       
      2. Hi, thanks for being a member here at DinarVets. Be sure to enter the Weekly Powerball Pool!
       
      3. One of the responses in that VIP thread made me think about a tip on using the forums here - the "tags" are pretty handy! For example, you can find a listing of all of my Weekly updates by going into the "Chat Logs" forum and clicking any of the "tags" that say "Adam Montana Weekly". 
       
      4. Bitcoin is scheduled for a big event... "the halvening", coming in approximately 8 days. This is historically a big deal: 
       
       
       
       
      That's it...  for now.
       
      Be well, stay safe, and GOOO RRRRVVVV!!!!

      Good afternoon and Happy Wednesday!
       
      Day 6jillion7bazillion876,9876,350,876 of the 'Rona lockdown. You would think, based on the initial presentation of the pandemic, that 50% of the world would be dead or at least partially zombified by now. 
       
      We would think that poor countries with little access to health care and large scale poverty would be almost completely devastated by now, due to lack of masks and life saving governor's orders to stay home.
       
      Countries like Iraq should certainly be wiped out and pleading for mercy, perhaps unloading oil tankers into parking lots and using the VLCCs for storing dead bodies. And certainly during Ramadan, nothing would be happening that could be counted as progress.
       
      Especially with OIL taking the huge hit that it took recently!
       
      That is not the case.
       
      See, for example, here. And here. And here. And here. And here. And here. And... need I go on? 
       
      Iraq is not only "fine", they are more than fine! They have weathered a monster hit to the price of oil without lowering their rate. They are surviving an unbelievable shakeup of their government, and tomorrow (Thursday) to May 8 look to be key dates for finalizing some more of that critical work. 
       
      Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying Coronavirus was a "hoax". On the contrary, it has been devastating for some... and the economic damage may never be fully calculated.
       
      But the world did not end. We will move past all of this. And the Iraqi Dinar is still a very real item that holds a massive amount of potential.
       
      That's my message for today! I hope you are all well, safe, happy, and as healthy as possible.
       
       
       
       
      We have a great thread going right now in the VIP section (here) and one post in particular seemed like it needed to be included in the Weekly Update. If you're in VIP and you didn't comment in that thread, go check it out!
       
       
       
      Iran is a major factor in the current price of the Iraqi Dinar, I don't think anyone will disagree with that. I'm certain they do have a large amount of Iraqi Dinar, just like many other nations (including the US). And when this is actually "done", it may be that Iran and Iraq are at major odds, even flat out war, as a result of it all when we reach the next stage.
       
      The Middle East will always be at war. That's not something that keeps me up at night. 
       
      To answer your final question - and probably the most important one in the post - I don't believe that Iran's possession of Iraqi Dinar will prevent Iraq from raising the value. It may impact the "how", but not the "if".
       
       
       
      Fine questions, sir.
       

       
      (As a result of that thread, I also posted a special VIP Q&A thread here. I'll be attending to that one on an ongoing basis for an unknown period of time. Join in!)
       
      That's it for this afternoon's Weekly Update!
