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.

      Happy Saturday all!
       
      The week was long, my apologies for getting this up so late...
       
      ... fortunately, I do not have to apologize for anything in Iraq. I know most of you don’t read the entirety of all the threads (who has time??), so I’ll bring a couple of important notes here. 
       
      This one, in particular, spells out EVERYTHING. 
       
      Iraq needs HCL (oil law) to really kick things into high gear. The oil law is many things, but of extreme importance is it’s scope regarding Kurdish relations with Baghdad inside the country. 
       
      You don’t have to do more than skim the following to see that this is ALL about that... and pretty much 100% positive. 
       
       
       
      That’s excellent stuff regarding the HCL, so I’ll leave that one for now. I have a question for the members here - I have my own opinion, and I’ll share that in an upcoming update. 
       
      The “budget” - specifically, this:
       
       
       
      There are a few “known” budgets. The operating budget that’s currently in place and a supplemental budget scheduled for September. We can argue that there are more than that, but let’s keep it simple. 
       
      I’ve seen a few comments regarding the possibility, or even impossibility, of a change in the rate without the “next” budget in place. This seems to suggest that people think a budget must be released that accurately accounts for an increased exchange rate. 
       
      This means Iraq would give the world a large notice that they intend to change the exchange rate before they actually do it... am I reading the comments wrong, or is that really a belief held by some of the members? If it is, I just want to understand your logic. 
       
      That's enough for now, I’ll follow up on that somewhat loaded question in a couple days.

      Good morning all!
       
      Today is Wednesday, 3rd of July 2019. 
       
      The air is crisp... well, not really. Actually it's humid here and the mosquitos are napping for the moment, but it's still a beautiful day!
       
      Interesting times right now. GOI members are playing very nicely. Bitcoin saw that pullback I mentioned, and looks to be on the rise again. The G20 didn't produce any immediately exciting news that I've ran across, but it didn't bring us anything bad either. 
       
      Back in the news, and worth a review, is the current OPEC agreement.
       
      This article I posted this morning highlights a very important point I've been harping on for some time, and even extends it - the current OPEC deal.
       
       
      Important notes in that article:
       
      Iraq is the 2nd largest oil producer in OPEC. (Does it make sense that it's currency is valued so low?) The production limitation agreement has been extended for 9 months - to boost the price of oil, rather than overproduce and drive the prices down.  
      There is more in there, but let's focus on those for a moment.
       
      The amount of time the agreement has been extended isn't as important as the mere fact that it IS extended. Oil is hovering just under that $60 mark, and the stability is a great thing. Stable oil prices = comfortable accountants = solid footing to RV. (Yes, the accountants have a say!)
       
      Iraq is noted as the second largest producer... wait, what? We're talking about BLACK GOLD here, one of the most valuable commodities on the planet. And Iraq is #2... yet the currency they use is currently over 1000X weaker than the US dollar.
       
      Collectively, OPEC nations have over 80% of the world's known oil reserves... yet Iraq, the 2nd largest producer in that group, has a currency that would require 2000 pieces of it to buy a loaf of bread at your corner store.
       
      OPEC as a group agreed to keep oil production low, to stimulate oil prices. The majority of the members placed their name on the list of participants in this endeavor when it was originally voted on.
       
      The majority of the members did that...
       
      ... Iraq specifically did NOT.
       
      I hope you understand how huge this is for Iraq. They are one of the founding members of OPEC. The 2nd largest producer in the group. Iraq is agreeing to support these cuts.
       
      But they did not agree to join the group in their cuts.
       
      This gives Iraq carte blanche - complete freedom - to increase their production on a moment's notice, revalue their currency, and corner the market while they rake in cash to cover their "expenses". They may be operating on an increased production as we speak, stocking up hidden stores of oil in preparation for a huge push to bring in a massive amount of capital to cover the RV. There is more than one way to skin a cat, as they say, and that's just one aspect.
       
      The above is certainly an oversimplification of the big picture, but the fact remains - Iraq is nodding in agreement with the cuts, but they have never committed to it.
       
      NOT.
       
      ONE.
       
      TIME.
       
       
       
      Have a safe and happy 4th, everyone! If my next post is missing some letters, I'll run a contest to see who can guess which finger I may have lost.
       
      GOOOOO RRRVVVVVV!!!!
       
       
       
      - Adam
       
      P.S. As a side note, you might want to consider shorting oil as soon as the RV is announced... I know that's a gamble I'll be considering heavily.

      Happy Hump Day!
       
      There is a recurring note present in my updates recently... I'm sure many of you already noticed.
       
      The note has to do with the truth that can be found in rumors, even if the rumors themselves are not entirely accurate.
       
      I'm going to continue that today, because the rumor section seems exceptionally lively... and some of it holds some very solid truths, even if the rumors themselves have been hyper-inflated like that time your neighbor Bob caught that 28 pound perch.
       
      This time of year has historically been big for Iraq. Monumental items like Chapter 7 unfolded in late June, and there's another important event right around the corner:
       
      The G20 Summit.
       
      Here's a fairly detailed explanation: https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/new-atlanticist/the-g20-summit-explained
       
      Excerpt:
       
       
      You probably noticed that Iraq is not on the list. In that case, it might not be immediately obvious why this even matters to us, so I'll explain a small part of it.
       
      Even though Iraq isn't technically "present", it's not difficult to understand that anytime oil, money, gold or gifts leave Iraq - they are touched by one or more of those major players listed above. For Iraq to be successful in raising the value of their currency, they need to be able to operate their business, and the G20 Summit will have an effect on how the global money game is played for the next year. Once the Summit has concluded, Iraq may change their tactics slightly, but most importantly they will be free to make a decision and act accordingly.
       
      It's a big deal, and it's good.
       
      So although I don't expect an RV announcement to be made at the Summit, or directly because of the Summit, I do think it's reasonable to expect some actions after the summit.
       
       
       
      Before I forget - the DV lottery pool. https://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/topic/266455-dv-lottery-games-for-625-626-2019
       
       
      And if that kind of lottery isn't your thing, maybe bitcoin is... anyone paying attention here? We have a special spot for it in VIP, and we've been pretty hot on BTC for a couple weeks now. Does it surprise anyone that BTC is on a tear right now? 
       
      It wouldn't, if you had been watching this VIP thread!
       
      To sum that up, in case you're not in VIP - BTC (bitcoin) took a scant 16 days to soar from 10k to 20k when it hit it's all time high.
       
      As I'm typing this, BTC is over 13k... up over $2000 since yesterday.
       
      When it was announced that facebook was officially getting in the game (see my thread started June 19), I personally hailed it as a great thing for crypto in general.
       
      I will NOT be surprised to see BTC hit 20k again, and it won't take long.
       
      This is not based only on the Facebook announcement, and I won't get into all of the boring details here - we're discussing it in great detail in the VIP section.
       
      Did I mention we're talking about this stuff in VIP?
       
      (As if you needed another reason to join us there, you know! ) 
       
      Whether you're in the pool, or happily watching Bitcoin rise, or just hanging out in VIP enjoying the knowledge and sharing the adventure with us, waiting to take advantage of a better cash in rate soon...
       
      .... GOOO RRRVVVVV!!!!

      Are we there yet?!?!!
       
      Good morning all! Lots of hype going on right now. That tends to bring out the best AND the worst in this Dinar adventure, so I want to address it real quick.
       
      Here's a simple truth: There is always going to be "hype". That does NOT mean there is no legitimate opportunity here.
       
      It's like someone passionately exclaiming, "Usain Bolt (the fastest man in the world) could beat a Corvette in a race!"
       
      Is that statement factual?
       
      No, it's a bit of an exaggeration.
       
      But is Usain Bolt still incredibly fast? YES! And while he's probably not going to outpace a vehicle with a top speed of over 200MPH, that doesn't take away from the fact that he holds an incredible record.
       
      The Iraqi Dinar is very similar. We currently have a bit of garbage to sift through as we dig into the "facts". There will always be attention seeking "gurus" making crazy claims about people standing in line to cash in or getting top secret calls from the "Head of International Crystal Ball Readers Association". These delusional characters may even believe the stuff they say, but does that make Usain Bolt any slower?
       
      Sure doesn't! And it also doesn't make the opportunity for the Dinar any less, either.
       

       
      If you were around the Dinar world before Chapter 7 was lifted, an event that was arguably one of the most important events related to Iraq in recent history, you'll remember that things got VERY exciting before that happened. It was not a guarantee that Chapter 7 would get lifted... in fact, it was questionable if it would actually happen, and very much a surprise to many.
       
      Even without absolute confirmation of this very important event that was about to transpire, and even though many of the news stations and media and all of the people "in the know" didn't give a warning... the dinar world had a "feeling" that something was about to happen.
       
      The rumor mills started cranking up, "reports" of people standing in line in Reno and Vegas and other "select" locations were flying around like monkeys at a circus, and the activity on many websites was through the roof.
       
      Did we have an RV at that time? Obviously not. And nobody cashed in, not in Reno or anywhere else... at least, not at the $3+ rate.
       
      BUT, did something major happen? 
       
      YES.
       
      That's where we seem to be right now.
       
      This is the time of year that many major milestones have been reached in Iraq.
       
      NOW is the time I'm expecting to see something major... maybe HCL, maybe something else, and very possibly a rate change.
       
      The tension is growing, and it shows in many ways... like how your animals know a storm is coming, when the weatherperson said "10% chance of rain", and then the neighbors barn and cows get taken away in a tornado.
       
      Fido knew.
       
      Did you listen?
       
      You might want to get in VIP, now. Join here.
       
      Bring on the twisters!

      Gooooood afternoon everyone!
       
      Well, we did it! We weathered another Ramadan, and Eid al fitr. I am going to state the obvious: Despite no RV announcement during the Big Holiday, this was a more eventful one than normal. 
       
      All positive, too!
       
      Historically, many of the bigger milestones have happened around this time of year. Chapter 7 was lifted in late June, for example. A few others have also occurred right around now as well.
       
      I have my eye on some "triggers" - nothing I can put a guarantee on, and I had a work issue pop up right as I was getting started with this update, so I'll save my hypothesizing for later. I have reason to believe we are entering a unique week for the Iraqi dinar, so I have already blocked time off on my calendar for additional dinar focus over the coming ~10 days.
       
      If I'm wrong, you can tar and feather me. If I'm not wrong, we should have some interesting times ahead.
       

       
      Before I wrap this up, here's something I don't do very often - This thread is now open for questions.
       
      What's on your mind? 
       
      (  I'm a glutton for punishment, what can I say?! And I already have extra time blocked off for Dinar this coming week, so what the heck... let's do it!  )
