Adam Montana Weekly 26 April 2019

Recommended Posts

Good morning DV!

 

The sun is shining most places and it's a great day to be here!

 

No major updates on the dinar, but that's not discouraging in the least. If you check my last couple weekly updates, and then compare to the news posts over the last week, you'll see that we're simply tracking on a positive course.

 

All good stuff, my friends! :twothumbs:

 

VIPs, there is a new post up for you in the VIP section: 

 

I also sent out an email yesterday to all VIPs. If you're in VIP, and you did not see that email in your inbox, then it went to your spam or promotions or some other email destination... it's up to you to fix that! I can't control your email inbox, and we don't want you to miss important updates, so take a minute to ensure DinarVets emails are landing in your Primary inbox and you'll enjoy the peace of mind that comes along with that.

 

:pirateship:

 

One last thing - in that VIP post, I mentioned an upcoming OSI post. After sleeping on it last night, I am going to save that post for during Ramadan. 

 

That's it from me for today - let's use this thread for Q's from the members for my next update. The current news trend is really positive and I have a suspicion that I'll be doing more than one update next week.

 

GOOOOO RRRRVVVVVV!!!!!

 

:tiphat:

Noticed that, too, CL.  Unfortunately, apparently there was no major HCL news.  But, hope springs eternal.  We still have a week!!

Baghdad, Kurdistan to discuss oil disputes, 50 percent bpd boost in Kirkuk

Baghdad, Kurdistan to discuss oil disputes, 50 percent bpd boost in Kirkuk

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – A delegation from Baghdad will soon meet with officials from the autonomous Kurdistan Region to discuss disputes related to oil exports and other budget agreements, Iraq’s Oil Minister Thamer Ghadhban said on Thursday.

Ghadhban also stated that his ministry had conducted research to boost oil output capacity from Kirkuk Province's oilfields by 50 percent of the current level, Reuters reported.

Earlier this month, the Iraqi official visited Kirkuk and said that the Iraqi federal government would build a refinery in the province that would boost barrels of oil per day (bpd) that Kirkuk is able to produce.

“The ministry has put the final touches on building an investment refinery in Kirkuk with a capacity of 150,000 barrels per day and according to the latest international standards,” he said.

Exports from oil fields in Kirkuk to Turkey’s Ceyhan port rose to 99,000 bpd in March, from 63,000 bpd the month before, according to the ministry’s statement.

The disputed province, claimed by both the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the federal government of Iraq, has some of the oldest and largest oilfields in the Middle East.

Since 2014, Kirkuk’s oil was exported through the Kurdistan Region to Turkey. However, the shipment was halted after the military takeover by Iraqi forces and Shia militias in the province on Oct. 16, 2017. On Nov. 16, 2018, Baghdad restarted exports of Kirkuk oil to Turkey through the Kurdistan Region’s oil pipeline at a rate of around 50,000 bpd.

Iraq is the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ (OPEC) second-largest producer just after Saudi Arabia and currently has an output below its maximum capacity of nearly five million bpd.

In early January, Baghdad reaffirmed its commitment to cut annual oil production as per an agreement between OPEC and additional non-member states such as Russia – known together as OPEC+ – to curtail global supply and bolster prices.

Holy Moly! I know Adam didn't call out a date or anything but I REALLY liked this " The current news trend is really positive and I have a suspicion that I'll be doing more than one update next week"  Reading that blurb certainly got my attention as we wind this journey down. Thanks for all that you put into this Adam! Go RV!

Agree with your comment coorslite21,

Iraq is moving forward but still has a lot of work to do.... nothing gets done

in ramadingdong 😂

- government is not fully seated 

- financial inclusion started yesterday 

- third review IMF-SBA third quarter 2019

- e-governance project still in the work

- HCL and Art 140 in discussion 

- rampant corruption 

- Census 2020

- private banks in Iraq are still far from the banking business

-They haven’t started to develop private sector yet.

 

iraq needs an economy that can support a higher value of the IQD... they’re not there yet.

 

like you said CL21..... time to take a vacation or a long nap.

 

Go iraq 

Go reality 

Go work to do

Kurdistan Region pays Gulf Keystone nearly $15 million for January oil share

By Rudaw 2 hours ago

Kurdistan Region pays Gulf Keystone nearly $15 million for January oil share

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has made a gross payment of $14.7 million to British oil producing company Gulf Keystone for the sales it made from Sheikhan field in January.

“Gulf Keystone confirms that a gross payment of $14.7 million ($11.5 million net to GKP) has been received from the Kurdistan Regional Government for Shaikan crude oil sales during January 2019,” a statement released by the company on Friday said.

Gulf Keystone Petroleum operates in Sheikhan field in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq’s province of Duhok, which currently produces 40,000 barrels of oil per day.

The company first discovered Sheikhan field in 2009, which has plans to boost its daily production of crude oil in the field to 55,000 barrels per day. Overall production from the field has now exceeded 40 million barrels, the company says.

Other companies have commended the KRG for making timely payments as it recovers from the economic crunch. 

During the past four years, the KRG was unable to make a regular and timely payments to energy companies operating in the Kurdistan Region due to its overstretched financial resources allocated partly to fund its war with the Islamic State (ISIS), accommodate an influx of refugees from Syria and displaced persons from Iraq, as well as its budget share cut by Baghdad in 2014.

Following its budget cut by the federal government, the KRG started to implement an unpopular salary-saving system that paid employees only a portion of their salaries. The system was rolled back following the passage of Iraq’s federal budget for 2019 that saw the Kurdistan Region receive a share in order to pay employee salaries.

Nearly 1.8 million Syrian refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) turned to the Kurdistan Region to seek shelter after the Syrian conflict exacerbated and the jihadist group swept through Iraq and took large swathes of territory in the country.

Now that relations between the KRG and Baghdad have improved, the KRG is in a better position to regularly pay oil and gas companies working in the region. And this will create better conditions for oil and gas companies to invest more in the region, helping Erbil recover from the financial setbacks of the past four years.

Brent Crude Oil traded at $72.15 per barrel on Saturday, according to the Financial Times — down from just over $74 on Monday when US sanctions targeting Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps went into effect.

      DINAR - man-oh-man I can’t wait till the day I get to say “THIS IS IT”! 
       
      Today isn’t that day, but it’s coming! 
       
      There’s a fun phenomena about things like this in life. There’s a saying about how "success breeds success" - the most successful realtors I know continue to do well, and in fact their jobs get easier as they get more successful because deals start coming to them. Same goes for VC companies - in the beginning, they have to hunt for deals. After a couple of successes, opportunities start coming to them. 
       
      The same thing has happened to me in the Dinar world. In the beginning of all this, I had to seek out contacts. I had to do a lot of traveling and palm-pressing to get information, to meet people, to open doors. These days, after being in this circle for so long and meeting so many people - things come to me. By treating people with respect and honoring the commitments I’ve made to people, many many doors have opened, and I enjoy a very solid flow of information and commentary from people who are much closer to the inner workings of not only the CBI and Iraq in general, but also many other related organizations and entities. (The same thing is true for our VIP and OSI opportunities.)
       
      I’m explaining this because although I won’t say “I think we’re going to see an RV within XX days”… I AM getting a really strong vibe right now. The timing is getting close, and the opportunity here is real.
       
      Stay positive, friends. We may not have as long a wait as some think.
       
      OIL - no problems there! Still solid, still right where we want.
       

       
      BITCOIN - h/t to @coorslite21 for posting this video in VIP. This is a SUPER explanation of a couple things Crypto. Of note is the SEC’s available timeline - they have a deadline of August 19, which can be postponed one more time to October 18. I believe those two dates are BIG in the crypto world.
       
       
       
      Interesting parallel between BTC and the dinar… in that YT video, around the 8 minute mark, he’s talking about people that were looking at the price of Bitcoin in 2014 and waiting for it to drop back down to the $300 range. It never happened, of course, and now BTC is around $8000.
       
      Same goes for dinar, and VIP - this is one of those things that has been brewing for years. It might seem like a long time to some of us, but BTC has done a 20X on it’s price in 3 years and there’s no going back. You can’t hop in a time machine and “buy more” at that old price!
       

       
      IQD will be the same way, friends! If you don’t have it now, it will be too late before you know it. And if you’re not in VIP, you’re going to have that same sense of regret. Sadness. Loss.
       
      Don’t give yourself yet another situation where you waited too long, “should have” taken action, but didn’t. Get in VIP today. 
       
      You’ll thank yourself for it.  
       
      I've got more, but the day isn't getting any shorter! 
       
      GOOOO RRRVVVVV!!!!!!!

      P.S. The Powerball pool! It runs every week, whether I mention it or not. Get in here.
       

       
      P.P.S. Couple random thoughts...
      Theresa May, will this story ever wrap up? Biggest non-story ever.  Stocks - I don't gamble often, but I've really been considering putting TESLA on a permanent short.

      Good morning good morning good morning!
       
      It's another beautiful day full of blessings and love, and also a short update.
       
      In the news... not much. It's Ramadan.  
       
      Oil is still strong above $60. Remember I said months ago that $60 was the target? Target reached, stability is being proven on a daily basis, and that is perfect. Any huge spikes or drops would be bad. OIL is solid right now... even with some tensions in the Middle East. This is exactly what we want.  
       
      @bostonangler finally gives credit where it's due and recognizes Obama is still hurting the economy.
       
      Bitcoin breaks $8000, and the other coins are following. XRP had a nice boost - are you getting all the crypto news you need? We have a section in VIP dedicated to cryptos, and there are profits to be made! 
       
      (One good trade with a tiny bit invested will more than pay for a Lifetime VIP membership... kind of a no-brainer, isn't it?)
       
      Bitcoin, and cryptos in general, are high on my "watch list". The high of over 19k last year was a little premature, and the resulting decline in value was to be expected. The current price of $8000 is very justified, and we may be watching the last time it will ever be this cheap. 
       
      That's not to say that it won't fluctuate! Of course it will... but my opinion is that it will continue to trend up. I'm HODLing.   
       
      Before I head off this morning, be sure to enter the Lotto pool! You can't win if you don't play, you know!  
       
      And on that note, I'm going to go buy my own ticket to enter into the pool, and I'll be sure to tell the cashier to give me the winning numbers. Thank me later.
       
      Happy Wednesday everyone! It's definitely Ramadan, but I'm still keeping an eye on things. The current situation is just too close to ignore the possibility that things can happen this year despite the normal holiday lull.
       
      GOOO RRRRVVVVV!!!!

      Tariffs on China. Pretty sure Trump said he would.
       
      Iran mucking up the world news. 
       
      Despite the above, OIL (WTI) refuses to go below $60.
       
      Uber going public... this should be interesting!
       
      Bezos... to the moon! (Pretty sure that's going to be an upgrade from your normal Prime membership.)
       
      Bitcoin refused to fall below $5000, in fact it topped $6000, Fidelity steps up again, and the SEC will give a major green light one of these days.
       
      All that, and more!
       
      Good morning everyone! My apologies for being absent a few days this last week. I had some personal matters to tend to, and they took me away from the updates I wanted to do.
       
      Don't think for a minute I wasn't on top of things! I just wasn't able to get my regular posts here done. 
       
      Ramadan is officially under way, and for once in this wild ride... I'm very pleased to see how things are moving.
       
      OF COURSE there are going to be snippets about things being pushed back to outside of Ramadan, but we're not even a week in and we are already seeing a difference.
       
      Case in point... start here and read the next few articles.
       
      Not only are Parliament meetings continuing as of tomorrow (Saturday), but we're finally talking about OIL!
       
      OIL has been missing from the news over the last couple months, and I was expecting it to resurface shortly. It is unusual, but not surprising, to see it popping up now.
       
      I say it's not surprising because even though it's Ramadan, the timing is right.
       
      This time around, they may just surprise us.
       
      More later.

      Good Morning DinarVets!
       
      It seems we are in an interesting situation right now. I've been watching the news shift directions slightly... not in an opposing way, just a shift.
       
      In the past, we've had some key things happen around mid-year. Major items, like Chapter 7, for example.
       
      The "shift" in the news that I'm seeing is - and I say this with a little bit of reservation, because I'm not substituting my intuition for an actual crystal ball - it is encouraging, in a way that may be signaling another big announcement in the middle of the year.
       
      Are you in VIP yet? Join here.
       
      I'm expecting a revaluation of the Iraqi Dinar to be preceded by a bit of silence... and we do have that right now. Don't get me wrong, we have a lot of encouraging articles to read right now, but the subtle shift in tone... It's hard to explain, but take a look at this comment and the posts that follow:
       
      Things happen slowly in Iraq. We know this.
       
      It was about 3 months ago when I posted that original link, and starting with the comment I just linked to, the discerning person can see how the articles are starting to focus on the higher level agreements.
       
      This is the fine tuning, and the polishing. 
       
      That's what I'm seeing happening right now... and it's all coming full circle, about 3-6 months after the last big round of "regular" news.
       
      This just happens to fall in place perfectly, if you ask me.
       
      I'm on the fence about Ramadan this year - it might not be as quiet as it has been in the past.
       
      I'm hoping to find some more clues, or get some "boots on the ground" feedback over the next couple days. 
       
      With that in mind, I'll be making another post to further explain my stance. Expect it Friday or Saturday, unless there's an RV announcement before then.
       
      Make sure you're in VIP, either way! 
       

       
      That's it for this morning - more to come.
       

       
      - Adam

      Goooood morning DV!
       
      This post will be a follow up to this week's earlier post... it's entirely possible that updates 2x per week are going to start happening, due to current events.
       
      Before I get too far into that, one quick clarification - earlier this week I said PM Abadi was in Saudi Arabia on business. Obviously this was a mistake, as the current Prime Minister of Iraq is no longer Abadi. 
       
      Nonetheless! The actual PM of Iraq, Abdul Mahdi, was indeed in Saudi Arabia - and the resulting news is a bit of a present, if you ask me. (Speaking of presents - happy Easter, Passover, and all the other related holidays this time of year, whichever you do or don't observe!)
       
      As I was getting ready to post this, a perfect article was posted. I'll link to it below - use your discerning intelligence to pick through the article and tell me if you see the same thing I do.
       
      This situation is completely lopsided. The focus is heavily on Iraq, the benefits to Iraq, and not much else.
       
      In what world is that a deal we expect to see from the Saudis... are they suddenly charitable people operating for the sole purpose of World Peace and charity?
       
      I don't think so. Therefore, the equalization simply isn't being mentioned. I'll get into this more in a second, but first here is the article:
       
       
      As I mentioned in my post earlier this week, Saudi Arabia is important to Iraq. Take a look at the map below - you'll see that Iraq has 3 major countries that border it, and only one actual connection to water.
       
      Aside from that small bit of beach I circled below... Iraq is landlocked.
       

       
      The two largest borders are Iran and Saudi Arabia. Both countries present opportunities for oil delivery... in order to sell their oil, they must deliver it. In order to deliver the oil, it must get to the sea, unless they are to limit their market to the 6 countries that border them... and why would other oil rich countries pay a premium to Iraq? 
       
      They would not, and will not. So it's in Iraq's best interest to have great relationships with it's neighbors, and it's important that the global market approves of these relationships.
       
      Iran and Syria are questionable allies... but Saudi Arabia is a solid partner.
       
      This is why I'm excited to see Iraq buddying up with Saudi Arabia, and it's even more exciting that it's not exactly clear what Saudi Arabia has to benefit at this time.
       
      I think we all know, or can use our imaginations.  
       
      On that note, there is still a discount going - I'll leave it up for a little bit longer, but not too long!
       
      Get in VIP now and save 33% - discount code "chipper", link here.
       
      See you in there, and GO RV!!!!!!
