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.

      Hey hey it's Wednesdayyyyy!
       
      It will be afternoon by the time I get this posted, so - Good Afternoon, or evening,
      wherever you may be!
       
      This was a strange week for me - I almost got the Weekly posted a day early! That
      turned out to be wishful thinking, as my phone ended up ringing off the hook all day
      and I just couldn't quite get to writing this up.
       
      Nevertheless, here we are!
       
      Every week here at DinarVets, a group of us enter our powerball numbers into the "Pool"
      (join us here this week). It occured to me this week, as I bought my lottery ticket, that I
      don't expect to win the lottery. I don't expect anyone else here to win it, either, but I still
      buy the tickets and enter my numbers in the Pool, because there's always a chance...
      and if we don't play, we can't win.
       
      The Powerball is a random chance. It's highly unlikely to land in our laps, no matter how
      long we wait. Nobody in our group is likely to win it, but we keep on plugging those
      numbers in there. There is a chance.
       
      My thought process on the Iraqi Dinar is much different... I fully expect to cash in on that one. 
       
      When I bought Iraqi dinar for the first time, I will admit that I was not nearly as knowledgeable
      about it as I am today.
       
      Over the years, I have continued to learn about it, educating myself and sharing that education,
      and I am more confident than ever that this will end with a good profit.
       
      The year 2020 continues to shape up as a GREAT year for it, too!
       
      Right now in particular, many of you probably noticed how the "news" sounds... none of the 
      squawk boxes are chattering about Iraq.
       
      Iraq was not mentioned once in my daily morning news feed... and that's just the way I like it.
       
      It was just a couple weeks ago that Iraq was in the spotlights, right next to Iran, but as of this 
      morning - not a peep about the middle east. At least, not in the MSM. Here on DV, we have better 
      sources and a more refined "ear" for what's going on!
       
      A couple of examples from the forums here:
       
      For example, it's looking more and more like one of the Allawi's will be appointed PM. My vote 
      would be for the one that Maliki likes the least, but I don't get a vote in that. LINK.
       
      There is a bit of talk about the USofA interfering, influencing, or otherwise controlling Iraq. This 
      holds some truth, such as what we see here. My opinion is that Trump may not be directly 
      responsible for Iraq's RV, but Iraq is being pushed to move away from Iran, and that is a good 
      thing. Articles like these are pretty solid evidence that Iraq wishes to stay on our good side, and all 
      that nonsense about Iraq "wanting US troops out immediately" was just that: nonsense.
       
      More evidence on how Iraq feels about the US:
       
       
       
      There's more, of course.. but that's enough for now.
       
      My friends, this situation is unfolding before our eyes... I have a strong feeling that the Dinar news 
      is going to get much more exciting, very soon.
       
      I'll be here as it happens!
       
       
       
      - Adam

      Hey hey Happy Thursday!
       
      Thank you to all who responded in this thread yesterday - the support and love that this community shows is nothing short of incredible!
       
      Quick update on the Iraqi Dinar for today... I'm very very interested in how things are playing out.
       
      It's very easy to get distracted, but we're too smart for that here at DinarVets.
       
      POP QUIZ TIME!!!
       
      Who is the Prime Minister of Iraq?
       
      (Insert Jeopardy music... 🎶)
       
      Ok, time's up. The answer is: Abdul Mahdi!
       
      (Did I just hear gasps and other noises of shock and awe?!)
       
      Yep, Abdul Mahdi. The same guy that was supposed to be replaced. Then the President of Iraq was also going to resign, and there was 15 days to resolve it all, and I believe there was some Hell and Brimstone and perhaps the stock market was about to tank with the impending WWIII... but for some reason, the only thing I've heard about on the news today is a bunch of fluff about IMPEACHMENT of the President of the United States.
       
      An Impeachment which, by the way, is going nowhere. It's a non-story.
       
      And the DOW is over 29,000 are you laughing at all of this with me yet?!
       
      I don't know what bugs you more - fake news, or non-news - but this has the marks of both at the same time!
       
      It does not actually annoy me, of course. I let it go in one ear and out the other, as I'm digging through the news for what REALLY matters.
       
      Despite the news being clogged up with all the non-news and fake-news headlines, there is actually a lot going on that we should be aware of.
       
      For example:
       
       
      The budget isn't a huge deal to me, but the "devil is in the details, as they say.
       
      Check out this follow up from @DinarThug - Mahdi, who should have been replaced by now, is not looking like a PM that is on the way out! As a matter of fact... it looks to me like the whole resignation thing is almost blown over and forgotten.
       
      Maybe that was the plan from the beginning, or maybe it just worked out that way, but I stated back in November that I like Mahdi in his role. If he does indeed end up staying - and continues to actually govern, as he's doing in the article I linked to above - he's still a good person for that role, very capable of orchestrating the situation we need for a successful RV. 
       
      We aren't in WWIII.
       
      Bitcoin is back over $8600. (Super interesting article here.)
       
      The DOW is over 29,000.
       
      All good stuff, my friends... closer and closer we inch, every single day!
       
      That's it for me right now - more to come later.

      Good morning and happy Wednesday, to all in Dinarland and everywhere!
       
      WOW.
       
      What an end to 2019, and what a start to 2020!
       
      2019 ended in Iraq with a flurry of activity. The Prime Minister resigned, the Iraqi President threatened to do the same. There were major protests, huge shifts in the landscape, and a lot of uncertainty. There is so much news and activity right now that it's almost impossible to keep up!
       
      This is exactly the type of situation where big things happen, but the world is so busy watching the "news" that it just slips under the radar.
       
      The uncertainty continues with the current situation regarding Iraq, largely because of the situation with their neighbor Iran. I'll give my opinions on the situation, but this is a fluid situation - things change fast. Also, some of these are my personal opinions - you don't have to like them, or agree with them. You are entitled to your wrong opinion.  
       
      Like it or not, the United States just influenced the timing and chances of a near future revalue on the Iraqi currency... but I don't believe the current events have altered the destination at all.
       
      In fact, the attack on Iranian terrorist Suleimani - justified or not - is likely in favor of a quicker path to an RV.
       
      I said that the protests would take about 6 weeks to wrap up. I was a little short on the timeline, but not much - and they did wrap up.
       
      This situation is a continuation, and very similar - it is going to be a bumpy ride, but it won't last forever. When it's over, I believe we will be in a far more favorable position to see the Iraqi currency skyrocket.
       
      Yes, I said that word:
       
      Skyrocket.
       
      The recent protests in Iraq, which started officially at the beginning of October, were largely instigated by the people of Iraq being fed up with the Government of Iraq's then current progress, which was largely influenced by Iran. The "read-between-the-lines" message was pretty simple:
       
      "Get Iran out of our country and do something good for us!"
       
      Iraq has made official announcements that they want all foreign troops out. The announcement is non-binding for the United States, and there is talk this morning that sanctions may be imposed on Iraq if they don't cooperate with our goal of controlling the Iranian terror machine.
       
      Yes, I that too: The Iranian terror machine.
       

       
      War isn't something that anyone should take lightly. The political rhetoric surrounding any serious situation, on the other hand... I tend to laugh that stuff off. For example, the idea that Trump should have gotten approval from Congress prior to sending Soleimani to meet his virgins... are you kidding me?! I suppose he should have followed that with a press conference announcing the attack in advance, and then apologize with a planeload of cash.
       
      Right?
       
       

       
       
       
      Anyway... we are indeed in the middle of a very tense and hectic time. I'm sure we are going to see all kinds of Chicken Little Syndrome (I'm calling it "CLS" from now on), we're going to have questions and self doubt and panic... buckle up, hang tight, and be ready.
       
      Kind of like what I'm doing, preparing for the comments I'm sure I'll get in response to this Weekly.
       
       
       
      On another note... my football team is in the playoffs. And Tom Brady isn't.
       

       
       
      GOOO RRRVVVV!!!!!
       
       
       
      - Adam
       
      P.S. Are you in the weekly Powerball pool?

      Good day and happy 27th of December, friends!
       
      Iraq is taking the end of 2019 serious, in case you hadn't noticed!
       
      There's a lot of chatter on the webs about the various news, and it's worth discussing!
       
      First, the recent history:
       
      Beginning of October 2019, the people of Iraq began protesting. And when I say "protesting", I mean riots, people dead, "we're not going to take it" level of protesting.
       
      The most recent Prime Minister quit, and his successor needed to be named in a short period of time.
       
      Parliament made it known that the voices of the people were heard, they know they can't just stick another puppet up there and expect things to be okay again. Of course, we all know that whomever is put in that spot is going to be a puppet, so I should say they know they are going to need a much more acceptable puppet, with a new song and dance.
       
      Last week, several options were considered, and they ended up with a completely unacceptable candidate: The current governor of Basra, Asaad Al-Eidani.
       
      *Sigh*... as if that was going to go well!
       
      Now, the President of Iraq Barham Saleh has stated that HE will also resign over the reaction to this nomination!
       
      This takes us to the current situation.
       
      My take on it - the President put up the candidate (Eidani) under pressure from Iran and other influences, but he knew that wasn't going to fly. It didn't, and now he's threatening to walk if the GOI doesn't get serious about listening to the people.
       
      Bottom line... the people are going to win this one.
       
      There WILL be a massive change in Iraq, and it's happening.
       
      Right now.
       

       
      Overall, I'm very happy with the situation. I'd be happier if we were a little further along and we had an RV, but obviously these things take time.
       
      The next 48 hours will give us more, as stated in one of the quotes below.
       
      Oh! The quotes below - I pulled these from some articles posted by @DinarThug in response to the thread "Iraq deadline to appoint new PM looms" - hat tip to you, sir! Excellent work.
       

       
      Read below and piece it together! And... we wait. But not too long, the way things are moving right now.
       
      Goooo RRRVVVV!!!!

      Hey hey all!
       
      I tagged this post as a "Weekly" even though there have been more than one "Weekly" lately, and even though it's a holiday week... there is probably going to be more than one this week as well.
       
      In the last update, I talked a bit about the upcoming change in leadership in Iraq. I'll recap, because it's important and even fun at this point with the solid stream of good news flying our way!
       
      Back in early October 2019, the people of Iraq finally had enough. If you were a member of that group, you'd probably feel the same way! Especially knowing as we do that your country is capable of increasing your spending power in a major way, and the only thing keeping you impoverished was a bunch of corrupt bureaucrats stealing your money...
       
      ... following those protests, or during them, the most recent Prime Minister (Mahdi) resigned.
       
      By law, there was a period of time to appoint the next leader. What is being said over and over, in many different ways, is that it is well known by all involved in the process of appointing the next Prime Minister that it must be a candidate who will be accepted by all political parties, and also the people.
       
      In fact, "most importantly, the people."
       
      This puts a very bright light not only on who they appoint, but also what happens in the very near future.
       
      I know I'm not the only one who sees this!
       
      The people of Iraq have forced a change in the government, because they were not happy with what was going on.
       
      And unless the next person gives them something good, and fast, they will be rioting again.
       
      I also mentioned in my last update that things should be happening fairly quickly. That update was a mere 5 days ago, and instead of the usual weeks or months of delays, we are seeing a different Iraq.
       
      I'm just going to snag a bunch of excerpts from a hot thread:
       
      This from an interview with Baghdad Today referring to President Barham Salih:
       
       
      The following of Tawfik Allawi:
       
       
       
      Allawi is reported, among other things, to have not liked Maliki:
       
       
      And Allawi himself says this:
       
       
      He says this knowing full well that if he doesn't appease the people, he will be next on the chopping block.
       
      He says this knowing that if he doesn't make the people happy - they will be rioting again.
       
      It really appears that the people are pushing the cart now, instead of being led like sheep.
       
      The people aren't going to wait long. They want change, and they want it fast.
       
      I'll gladly take that change, regardless of who brings it... and it's looking pretty obvious that someone is going to have to bring it. Or else.
       

       
      Today or tomorrow we should have an announcement on who is going to take the responsibility for that change... it may be a surprisingly great Christmas after all!
