Ok... Where are we now?

Recommended Posts

Feeling like there's no anchor information.  Anybody have an idea of where we are (other than Ramadon a dong a ding dong)?

 

So where are we now?

Hey GC I don't know where we are all at,  but I do know that I am at the same place I was 5 years ago and my friends are probably going on 10 years now. According to the current news maybe 2 more months on the HCL (Key, paramount, according to Adam) and it certainly seems to be illusive......but soon LOL   :rocking-chair:  I hope that you are younger than I.

I've made a bet with a couple of friends of mine that got into this back in the Spring of '04 while we were working in Kuwait. If these Pin Heads RV before the end of 2015 - I'll buy them a CASE of their favorite Scotch. If they don't RV by the end of the 2015, they [ meaning each one and there are 6 involved now ], each one of them will buy ME a CASE of my Favorite Scotch.

 

Let's just say I don't believe the RV is going to happen this year. If by some miracle they do RV in 2015, I will happily pay THAT bet.

That can be a real expensive bet.

I just knew nothing would happen in that time, so I did not even check the site. Sure wish I was wrong, but seems I hit the nail on the head! :(

Since the security situation seems to be the major problem working against any possible RV taking place, & America is the only country in the world who is willing to solve the problem. We will have to wait until the NEW president is in place to send troops to kick ISIL's butt.

 

I am guessing 2017. :(

It would seem to me that if there are banks, investors, etc. involved in the post RV plan that they would have their finger on the pulse of an inevitable RV/RI .  That being said, I would suspect that Adam is in contact with them where he would also have a better sense of what's likely to happen.  The problem is that there has been moments of excitement yet limited forward movement. Granted, if you got in early enough you may have tripled or quadrupled your IQD value.  That, in and of itself, is fantastic but I suspect most of us are looking for bigger value change.  So, where are we now?.  Or, better said, If they are going to RV/RI then what are the specific accomplishments that need to be done to do so. And... what is the status of each potential accomplishment. Are they only the HCL and stability (ie. ISIS)?  If it's those two things only then we are in this for a lot longer time... years... I suspect.

 

Hey, sorry... just typing out loud and babbling.  I felt that I had more concrete information about a year ago... now... it feels like flopping in the wind.

      MARKETS REPORTER   BIMANMUKHERJI
        Oil futures moved sharply higher on Friday, as investors showed some optimism about what will come out of next week’s meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries.
      Up for final discussion by the cartel is whether to extend the current six-month production-cut deal beyond the mid-2017 expiration, and if so, for how long and whether the reductions should be increased.
      It is widely expected an extension will occur, and energy officials from Saudi Arabia and Russia this week signaled they back a nine-month extension. That helped give oil a start-of-week gain that’s been built on since, putting crude on pace to modestly top the 3.5% jump logged last week.
      After settling Thursday at three-week highs, light, sweet crude futures for delivery in June CLM7, +1.64%  jumped 59 cents, or 1.2%, to $49.93 a barrel. The contract briefly topped $50 a barrel for the first time since April, according to FactSet data.
      July Brent crude LCON7, +1.77%  on London’s ICE Futures exchange also gained 59 cents, or 1.2%, to $53.10 a barrel.
      Li Li, energy research director at ICIS China, attributed Friday’s advance to pre-meeting optimism, but said she doesn’t “expect prices to jump hugely from the current trading range.”
        The presidential election in Iran was also grabbing oil trader’s attention on Friday. Commerzbank analysts said the result could have “major consequences for the oil market” if conservative cleric Ebrahim Raisi wins the vote. Raisi and reform-oriented incumbent Hassan Rouhani are leading the polls.

      Raisi has expressed criticism of the nuclear agreed in 2015 that paved the way for the U.S.-led sanctions to be lifted and allow Iran to sell oil on the international energy markets.
      If Raisi wins “the agreement in its current form would risk being overturned. New sanctions would then very likely be imposed by the US and the West, which could reduce the oil supply from Iran even in the short term,” the Commerzbank analysts said.
      “An election victory for Raisi would therefore drive oil prices up noticeably,” they added.

      Later on Friday, oil prices would also be steered by the latest weekly U.S. rig-count data from Baker Hughes. That report has shown 17-straight weeks of growth in active oil-drilling rigs.
      But government figures on Wednesday showed the first week-to-week drop in domestic oil production since February, a development which also helped lift crude prices this week and get light, sweet crude back toward $50.
      To some, the past two weeks’ price rebound was to be expected after April’s slide. That drop “was a case of sentiment over substance,” said BMI Research. It sees more price gains to come the next several months, but they “are more likely to be incremental rather than exponential.”
      As for oil products, Nymex June gasoline futures RBM7, +1.72%  rose 1% to $1.62 a gallon, while ICE gasoil gained 1% to $469.75 per metric ton.
      Natural gas futures NGM17, +2.36%  advanced 0.8% to $3.21 per million British thermal units.

      Iran sanctions could soon push oil prices above $90 a barrel, Bank of America Merrill Lynch says
      “We are in a very attractive oil price environment and our house view is that oil will hit $90 by the end of the second quarter of next year,” Hootan Yazhari, head of frontier markets equity research at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said. On Tuesday, the U.S. demanded that all countries halt imports of Iranian crude from early November. The Trump administration’s hardline position comes as part of a broader push to try to further isolate Tehran both politically and economically. International benchmark Brent crude traded at around $78.18 on Thursday, up around 0.7 percent while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) stood unchanged at $72.72. Sam Meredith | @smeredith19  

      President Donald Trump’s sustained bid to disrupt Iran’s petroleum exports could soon help to push oil prices above $90 a barrel, analysts told CNBC on Thursday.
      Crude futures were seen hovering close to multi-year highs during early afternoon deals, after a bigger-than-expected drop in U.S. stockpilesadded to a rally fueled by a major Canadian supply outage, concerns about Libya’s exports and efforts by the Trump administration to cut off funds from Iran.
      “We are in a very attractive oil price environment and our house view is that oil will hit $90 by the end of the second quarter of next year,” Hootan Yazhari, head of frontier markets equity research at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said.
        “We are moving into an environment where supply disruptions are visible all over the world… and of course President Trump has been pretty active in trying to isolate Iran and getting U.S. allies not to purchase oil from Iran,” he added.
      International benchmark Brent crude traded at around $78.18 on Thursday, up around 0.7 percent while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) stood unchanged at $72.72.
      Saudi Arabia is ‘genuinely worried’
      On Tuesday, the U.S. demanded that all countries halt imports of Iranian crude from early November. The Trump administration’s hardline position comes as part of a broader push to try to further isolate Tehran both politically and economically.
      Nonetheless, most major importers of Iranian crude have balked at Washington’s almost unilateral policy towards Iran.
       
          The move followed OPEC’s decision to ramp up crude production last week. The Middle East-dominated cartel is looking to moderate oil prices after a rally of more than 40 percent over the last 12 months.
      The 14-member producer group took action as Venezuela's dwindling output, the looming disruptions to Iran's supplies, and production declines elsewhere raised concerns about crude futures rising enough to dent global demand.
      “You do not want to give Jeff Bezos a seven-year head start.” Hear what else Buffett has to say   “Saudi Arabia is genuinely worried, perhaps even panicked, about supply losses from Iran — something it simply cannot be seen to say publicly — and the likely price spike that will result,” analysts at Energy Aspects said in a research note published Thursday.

      tommy opinion
       
      I think you fail to understand the relationship between the Vietnamese dong and the US dollar. Although the dong is not freely convertible, it remains loosely pegged to the dollar in an arrangement known as a ‘crawling peg’. The USA is Vietnam’s top trading partner, so why would they jeopardise that foreign investment coming in by making it more expensive for them to buy Vietnamese goods?
      Fluctuations in Vietnamese inflation also alter the difference in the inflation rates of Vietnam and its trading partners. This will have an impact on the exchange rate of the two currencies. If Vietnam’s inflation rate exceeds that of its trading partner then there will be upward pressure on the real exchange rate. There would be a consequent deterioration of Vietnam’s competitive position, with all the subsequent negative effects on the economy. To prevent a rise in the real exchange rate, the dong has to depreciate relative to the foreign currency in order to reflect the inflation differential.
      However, since the beginning of 2013, the real exchange rates of the dong with the US dollar and the renminbi have both been larger than one. This means that Vietnam’s competitive positions in its bilateral export markets with China and the United States have deteriorated. To improve competitiveness, the SBV could tighten monetary policy to reduce inflation. Alternatively, it could allow its currency to depreciate faster. Both entail short-term pain and long-term gain. The SBV will likely justify this by saying that it is necessary to bring jobs to Vietnam in the age of globalisation.
       
      my opinion 
      Iraq as big export of crude oil . Inflation will less faster than you expected. I have seen a once that cbi put  1.2 dollar rate in the website . I think iraq will make adjustments rate and delete 3 zero  and reduce the rate and peg dollar to boost export . 
       
      I really hope  global  currency reset could be happens and  vietnam reinstant their currency . I will put my money in vietnam stock before gcr be happens .

      Can anyone explain to me why must they pass the HCL law before there can be a revaluation of the dinar?  What is the connection? It certainly doesn’t look like the GOI will ever agree on this or even bring it up for a vote. They keep pushing it off to the “next session” year after year...  Is it at all possible that we can ever see an RV without the HCL law passing?
