Thursday Midnight Guru Opinions - 2/20/2020

Recommended Posts



2-19-2020   Intel Guru Delta   Article:  "Rafidain Bank announces the opening of documentary credits to ministries, traders and private sector companies"

2-20-2020   Newshound Guru MilitiaMan   From Guru Frank26:  "Regular meetings now between CBI Board, IMF, AMF and UST."   For them to be having meetings with those four should assure us that this is coming together so very well and orchestrated to be in synchronization with the new PM and his fresh independent cabinet even with the ISX to down to bank tellers. The four Global Enities would be the ones to give the guidance to the CBs, Private Banks and then down to the bank managers, as they will need to know what to teach the tellers. They'll need to know what to tell the citizens about the value and the longevity of the coexistence of the varied currencies they will hold for what ever period of time they decide. That is effectively end game for us when that happens. imo.


2-20-2020   Intel Guru Footforward   [What are your thoughts...on what will happen next after he [Allawi] seats his Cabinet and it gets approved...]  They will immediately get to work on the budget. This isn't holding up the RV. But it certainly doesn't hurt things one bit.

      4-8-2020   Newshound Guru Pimpy  ...we see the auctions have already happened and already you guys are losing your freaking minds over it...but it's clearly an auction.  What's gonna happen if the ISX opens and there's no rate change?  All doom and gloom and negativity that's gonna be overwhelming everybody.  Why?...the currency auctions have started there's no doubt about it...it's doesn't mean it's the end of the world.  It doesn't mean that the rate is not going to change.  I still think it's going to change...

      4-8-2020   Newshound Guru Jeff    Article:   "The Finance Committee comments on the Central Banks' decision to stop the flow of the dollar" ...the Central Banks goal is really to stop the flow of the U.S. dollar.  That's their goal.  Remember that's actually an article VIII requirement - they can only use the Iraq dinar.

      4-7-2020   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat   Article:  "WASHINGTON INTENDS TO MONITOR THE CENTRAL BANK OF IRAQ UNDER SUPERVISION FOR ITS INVOLVEMENT IN WITHDRAWING THE DOLLAR ILLEGALLY"   As we all know the CBI stopped selling the dollar at the currency auctions on around March 17th. So just recently they began the auctions again. They were forced to shut down due the illegal sales of the dollar to Iran that circumvented the US sanctions. A team of US specialists entered Iraq and worked with the CBI to find ways around the corruption. Now that these measures are in place, the auctions were restarted. This monitoring process will continue. The CBI must get within the 2% compliance again. No, they do not necessarily..!

      4-7-2020   Newshound Guru Jeff   After the rate changes...I've already talked to Wells Fargo private client services privately...Private Client Services is not a bank branch they're a division of Wells Fargo that actually invest money for you.  They said depending on the amount of dinar you have they can actually exchange foreign currency at a lower price and lower fees and rates than the actual bank branches can.  We're finding out that bank branches are probably gonna do it about 1-ish% based on the amount of dinar you actually have...might be able to get reduced fees around 1/2 a percent on exchange...

      4-7-2020 *** Dinar Rate Update ***  The CBI official market rate for the dinar has not been updated since 3-16-2020 - The last reported market rate is 1203.455.   There was a Dollar Sale today at the CBI Daily Auction retro-active to Thursday, 3/19/2020.  We're waiting to see what the CBI reports when they officially update.    4-7-2020   Intel Guru Footforward   ...I'm wanting to encourage people not to give up. It's my opinion the RV is close. It's my opinion the finish line is not far away. Finish well. That's the point I'm trying to make.   4-7-2020   Newshound Guru Jeff  ...yesterday Monday they did not have a currency auction.  Today looks just like Sunday.  Today they're showing us they had a currency auction but again just like Sunday the total cash sale is zero.  They haven't sold anything this whole week.  BOOM!  We're looking good.  We're right on to see a blessing this weekend...the ISX stock exchange..say the last update was March 16 so again they have not had any actual stock trading since March 16th and so far they technically have not sold anything at the auctions really since 3-16 either...looking good.  I'm excited. Good Tuesday Morning DV...!  RON

      4-6-2020   Newshound Guru MilitiaMan   Article quote:  "In the context of the corona crisis and its associated cash crisis, a new currency-foreign exchange mechanism or tool should be adopted to support the banking and banking sector, as the central bank of Iraq has stopped selling the dollar in cash to the exchange companies through Banks...and then they make payments according to the customer's desire, either in cash or in the account balances of electronic cards to the public..."   This sure looks like the MEETING went well today. They are talking about the NEW CURRENCY! A MECHANISM to support the Banking Sector that will be facilitated by use for electronic cards... Wow, things are moving along now very nicely! imo.

      4-6-2020   Intel Guru Frank26  ...IMO the introduction of the new small category notes will be with a fixed rate - regardless if it's pegged to a basket with another currency or regardless if it's pegged to the American dollar...I see 1 to 1 in the country.  But then when the dinar is established enough internally and has permeated the banking structure and the markets of the world...then you're going to see confidence being built in the Iraqi dinar...then you're going to see stability for the Iraqi dinar internationally...

      4-6-2020   Intel Guru RayRen98   ...News saying after long delay, China is preparing to close the "deal of the century" on oil with Iraq next week.  The auctions started back yesterday...after being down since March 17...selling dollars only.  News ticker on Iraqi TV broadcasts Al Zarfi saying that his government is ready and will be presented to Parliament within 48 hours.

      4-6-2020   Newshound Guru Jeff  ...Iraq can produce oil at about $10.70 per barrel.   Back in 2016 it only cost Iraq about $11 a barrel to create it...just yesterday [Friday] Brent oil which is what Iraq works on...was already at $34 a barrel..they only need $44 to really fund the country...they only need oil about $45 to $50 a barrel to really fund their costs and obligation to run the country...

      4-6-2020 *** Dinar Rate Update ***  The CBI official market rate for the dinar has not been updated since 3-16-2020 - The last reported market rate is 1203.455.  Several gurus have mentioned the market rate has increased (which means the value has gone down) in certain Iraqi markets.  We're waiting to see what the CBI reports when they officially update.     4-6-2020   Newshound Guru Chattels   The current premier-designate has until April 16 to form the next cabinet and be approved by the majority of the parliament – or face a similar fate as Allawi, who failed to get his cabinet of independent technocrats approved after rebellion from Sunni, Kurdish, and some Shiite parties.  We shall see...

      4-6-2020   Newshound Guru Pimpy   Yes, the currency auctions was open Sunday.  Yes there was an auction Sunday.  They did not sell any physical cash but they did sell digital cash. No auction today...Monday..  

      4-6-2020   Newshound Guru Jeff  ...even though they told you in the news that they actually have resumed the currency auctions they didn't sell anything.  There were zero sales.   That's the same as not having currency auctions...

      4-6-2020   Newshound Guru Jeff  Article "Al-Zarfi reveals the date of the parliamentary to vote on the new government"   ...that will be approximately Wednesday to Thursday of this week we're entering into now.
      4-6-2020   Newshound/Intel Guru BGG   [Reference Mike Cottrell post 4-3-2020:   "As far as Exchange protocols have always been to have a DeLarue machine verify each currency. I assume it would still be a sanitary way to do it with minimal contact"]   ...None of this is accurate. The De La Rue machine is not an automated authentication protocol. Anyone saying it is – or speaking as an “authority” on the subject is making it up as they go. It is a high end counter and “screening device” – IT DOES NOT AUTHENTICATE ANYTHING. I have spoken to the engineers who designed it (in London) on a number of occasions. This was their description directly to me. Had it been the device everyone is claiming – I would have bought (or leased) one. It is not. Good Monday Morning DV....Have a Blessed Day....RON
