Wednesday Evening Guru Opinions @ 6:10 PM EDT - 7/11/2019

Recommended Posts


7-11-2019   Newshound Guru chattels   Article:  "Oil and gas laws: a crux of Erbil-Baghdad tension By Omar Moradi"   Quote:  "The lack of oil and gas federal legislation has been the root cause of problems between Erbil and Baghdad since the Iraqi constitution was approved in 2005. Now there is a government in Baghdad that has shown its desire to resolve these problems through dialogue, and the success of the new Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) cabinet depends on whether the oil and gas issue is resolved with Baghdad IMO, the federal legislation contemplated by the foregoing article is "THE HCL".    If the HCL law is a condition precedent or attendant to our liquidity event, then we are not there yet.

7-11-2019   Newshound Guru Adam Montana   Article:  "Oil and gas laws: a crux of Erbil-Baghdad tension Back in the forefront of ReValuation (RV) news...HCL. We've made it through Ramadan, budgeting, elections, and a whole slew of other issues. All of them, although lengthy at times, have sailed successfully through the turbulent waters and left us with a final component:  HCL. It's actually on the horizon. It's being talked about, and I'm predicting we'll see more of this very shortly.     Adding fuel to the HCL fire: "Iraqi oil minister: OPEC agreement + will reduce stocks and achieve price stability"   WTI just crossed $60 again, and those of us watching the OIL tickers recently are well aware of how stable OIL is right now.  Those of us pairing that information with the current and ongoing situation in Iraq understand how important OIL is to Iraq's ability to RV.   And in case anyone needed some's going as perfect as we could hope for...(post 1 of 2)... 


7-11-2019   Newshound Guru Adam Montana   There will never be an absolute perfect set of circumstances under which Iraq "can" or "should" or "must" change the value of their currency.  I see a fair amount of comments from people stating something like "Oh, Iraq will never RV unless X happens, or until Y is implemented", etc etc... that is simply not true.    There is NO absolute "must" for Iraq.  They can change the rate today. Or yesterday, or tomorrow. They can do it without any further progress, without any permission from anyone or anything, and all the speculation in the world won't give us an exact date or a precise set of circumstances. The situation we find ourselves in today, at this very moment, is "good enough".  Personally, I'm on standby for an incredible event.  A solid resolution on the oil and gas law (HCL) will mean "no turning back", but just the same - it's not a necessity.  Pretty darn exciting, if you ask me...(post 2 of 2)... 

NOTE: Adam's entire chat can be found in Chat Logs here on DV under Thread: Adam Montana Weekly 11 July 2019



7-11-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat   Article:  "WHY IS THE CURRENCY AUCTION IS OUTSIDE THE CONTROL OF THE CENTRAL BANK?"    ...another article talking about the corruption with the currency auctions. This is all very good. We are going to see these auctions end and the “project to delete the zeros”. This is coming and coming sooner than later. The pressure by Sadr is enormous on parliament and the finance committee to work with the CBI.

7-11-2019   Newshound Guru MilitiaMan   Article:  "The central bank goes beyond the technical gap and the challenges of digital transformation"   ...this one has my eye and big time. They are literally telling you they are ready to hit the pavement running. What timing. They are talking in International Standards and are at platform ready status in a fourth Axis... That has me scratching my head, but the implications are realm of going live with the currency, stocks, etc.. imo. ~ WOW~

      7-20-2019   Newshound Guru G-Lin   [Does Iran have any or a negative impact on our investment?]  ...yes it has an impact...The U.S./Iran situation is very serious and is escalating daily. Instability, instability, instability. I'm anxious to see the Art. IV statement from IMF. It is suppose to come out today...that review will be interesting. Iraq continues to look stronger and stronger economically, however, the M.E. tension is worrisome...   7-19-2019   Newshound Guru Kaperoni  ...we're starting to see a lot of movement with the Iraqi government to encourage investment and to start bringing capital into the country and to start to move this wheel forward...And that's what's going to cause the CBI to get off the peg because they don't want to be last to the party.  They want to be ready for when all that capital comes in because that is what's going to cause pressure on the financial system.

      7-19-2019   Newshound Guru Enorrste   ...they will change the exchange regime to a float and move to article VIII at the same time.  I can't imagine why they wouldn't do it at the same time...they're banging their drums that they are ready.  There's got to be some critical point, a certain amount of money they want to see come into the country.  They are going to have to make that switch because otherwise they're going to create too much inflationary pressure.

      7-19-2019   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   There's been indications in the IMF's own reports, in what's called their article IV consultations...there's been comments from the IMF...where they've told them [Iraq] to liberalize their foreign exchange, to move to article VIII.   There's been statements in those Article IV consultations that have been very encouraging regarding our investment leading us down the path of what we're looking for...freedom of movement of capital...'moving to article VIII will send a strong message to the global investment community that Iraq is open for business.'  So there is no confusion there...they have to move to Article VIII...if they want to convince the world 'hey, we're ready. Come and invest.'  So article VIII isn't a dream we're hoping for, it's a step in the process and we're just on the cusp I think of that occurring...

      7-19-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat    The CBI has told us that when they are getting ready to move ahead again with the “project to delete the zeros” they will tell us. They have not yet done so. They are not hiding anything or trying to give us “smoke screens” to prevent us from knowing when.  
      7-19-2019   Newshound Guru MilitiaMan   "Finance Committee in the House of Representatives: a surplus of funds due to high oil prices"    ...That money is for the citizens imo per the constitution.  It was reported that 2018 had one too.  They would have told the IMF back on the 04/10/2019 by law...imo...So if they are going to distribute the fair share to the citizens that is to be in the coming days. As in a Looking good...

      7-18-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat   The news is scarce coming from Iraq. We do know the CBI governor is being replaced as Alaq has resigned effective in September. He is transitioning now with the new governor. I am still in the notion that we will NOT see any RV until at least the time when the new governor is announced officially and we are out of all these proxy positions in the financial sector of the government including the CBI and the financial ministry. So we sit and wait. These lulls are usually followed by a breakout of some really good news and steps forward...Remember anything is possible in Iraq. But we are told they will not just trigger the reinstatement without some sort of notice to the people.  It will not be in the Gazette as some...want you to believe. 

      7-18-2019   Newshound Guru MilitiaMan   "Disclosure of the date of receipt of the 2020 budget and parliamentary finance confirms: There will be a boom in the Iraqi economy"   The amendment in the amended 2019 budget will usher the 2020 in.   Kurds are happy campers today...Alak told us that...Iraq Banks were to EMBARK on electronic banking...Well to do that and to open private satellite banks globally needs a rate change. The IMF meeting Friday may have the numbers they need to dot I s and cross T s.  ...We even now here buzz around the world that China has something in store for the world...Our side of the pond wants a level playing field and I'll bet the apposing pitcher is about to throw the first pitch.. imo.

      7-18-2019  Newshound Guru Kaperoni    It has been 16 months that the CBI has stabilized the currency in the country to within 2% as identified by the IMF requirement...that's been a problem over the years where the currency went out of compliance and the dinar devalued to the dollar...what they've done is a really good job with the help of the U.S. Treasury to get this under control...yes they've brought the reserves to 72 Billion now and I think one of the 5 largest reserves in the Middle East but there are some other things kinda under the table here which are all relative.  When Iraq accepts Article VIII they have held stability for 17 months when the requirement was only 90 days.  They have done a really wonderful job creating a situation where they are creating a lot of confidence in their banking system for financial experts around the world as they look at should they bring money into Iraq and trust the banking system...
      7-18-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru RVAlready  The problem with anyone who says this will float up from program rate is that it is in direct opposition to what Dr Shabibi said, which was NO FLOAT... Shabibi planned the entire RV. ...Shabibi clearly stated initial rate would be 3.22 plus up to 20% and close to Kuwait. .....That may have been the plan when Shabibi was head of the CBI, but there is a different mindset in the CBI now, and "NO ONE" outside the CBI & GOI really know what will happen, when it will happen, and how it will happen....all we can do is wait, hope, and pray. I feel it may occur soon based on a number of factors, but all we can do is wait. That's my opinion....RON

      7-17-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru Randy Koonce   ...there is a very good window that has opened up once again, and will last through the end of the month. As I have mentioned before, many of the things that have happened on our way to the revaluation of the Iraqi Dinar has turned this anticipated event into a very big Political Game. I call it “Global Political Football”.  And there have been no rules to this long and unending game!  That being said, there is reason to believe that we are very - VERY - close to the final buzzer now. And, it is a very BIG WINDOW between now (as in ‘right now’;) through the end of month.  But...because it is a political football game, that does not mean that if this window closes at the end of the month without a rate change, we will never see it.  It just means that another political fight got in the way. Again...(post 1 of 3)... 

      7-17-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru Randy Koonce    I want you to know there is nothing left for Iraq to do to prepare for a rate change. They have been ready since December of Last Year. As in 2018. January started the political football game. There were many political players, from our own Government to several others as well...And ALL of them have affected the political environment. Look for the Dinar to come out between $1 -$2. It should go up a little more later on. Please do not get suckered into waiting or watching for any 800 numbers. You will be able to exchange at any big bank or financial exchange center that normally deals in foreign currency exchanges...(post 2 of 3)... 
      7-17-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru Randy Koonce    THE RATE IS THE ONLY THING THAT YOU ARE WAITING FOR.  Remember: This is a POLITICAL football, so it is possible there could always be another unforeseen ‘time out’.  It is not that our information was bad; but it might change. Again. DO NOT give your dinar to anyone else to exchange for you.  We are really, seriously, truly, honestly, absolutely, positively, probably VERY CLOSE.  RELAX the RV really is coming . ...Keep Breathing...check the [CBI] every day to see if it has changed...(post 3 of 3)...

      7-17-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat   Article:  "DEPUTIES IN PARLIAMENT DEMAND ACTION TO PUT AN END TO THE THE MASSIVE CORRUPTION CARRIED OUT THROUGH THE AUCTION OF HARD CURRENCY ORGANIZED BY THE CENTRAL BANK"  Quote:  “THE OFFICIAL STRESSED THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS CONSIDERING SEVERAL OPTIONS TO STRENGTHEN THE DINAR, such as the deletion of zeros or determine the price globally, as do many countries in the Arabian Gulf.” To determine the price globally means to reinstate the dinar BACK on the global exchanges... ...This is the holdup right now in getting the reinstatement ...THE CORRUPTION IN THE CBI! ...So we know they that they know and the pressure is on to do something about losing all this money on these auctions. They have out-lived their usefulness which was to control inflation... 

      7-17-2019   Newshound Guru Enorrste   I don't think we can underestimate the role of the IMF in all of this.  They stated two years ago they were going to become the trustee of the Central Bank of Iraq.  When you're the trustee this means you have the purse strings in your pocket and you can pull any sting you want at any time you want and it's not by any coincidence whatsoever this currency shortly thereafter came into stabilization and they got within 2% between the fixed rate and the market rate...Allaq couldn't do it so the IMF finally took over as the trustee of the CBI...They have it under control for 16 months...Why in the world would an International organization like the IMF want to stick their nose in Iraq's business so deeply? ..(Post 1 of 2)... 
      7-17-2019   Newshound Guru Enorrste   ...I think the answer is clear.  They want to make Iraq one of the most powerful currencies in the world.  They want to make it a world reserve currency.  They announced that some time ago.  8 years ago.  IMF has agreed it's a good idea because of their location.  1.  They are in the Middle East  2.  The world needs another world reserve currency with the dollar being so over extended...they need this and we can't overestimate the power and importance of the IMF becoming this trustee...they want this thing to happen.  They are proving it by making this currency flat to close to its own market rate for 16 months now and announcing they're ready for international trade.  It's really really tightened up...(Post 2 of 2)...
