Monday Night Opinions @ 8:58 PM CST - 12/21/2020


Recommended Posts

Good Evening DV, here's a few opinions & comments that might be of interest to you. Remember, no one really  knows what will happen, or when. They're simply stating their opinions based on what  they perceive to be happening in Iraq. :twothumbs:RON

 

 

12-21-2020   Newshound  MilitiaMan  Article:  "Lowering the price of the currency .. What are its implications for the national economy? The adjustment to 1460 is a devaluation. They are not going into a market economy with that. They didn't at 1190, so with the further negative adjustment they won't either imo...the US FED RESERVE says they can...devalue and revalue. A revaluation to a supported market based exchange rate can change things quickly and on many fronts...


12-21-2020   Newshound tman23  Seen the IQD devaluation on ABC news, and to take place after first of the year. Quite frankly, not a surprise or shock due to the fact Shabibi said the change to currency and lifting the 3 zeroes MUST COME AT THE START OF THE NEW YEAR and not in a quarter or middle of the year. The New Year is because banks start their books for the fiscal year and this is the only time this change can occur. A few years ago the budget calculated that a rate might be around 67 cents, today, today’s conditions might take them to 58 cents or thereabouts...Anyhow it’s all speculation but what isn’t is a change after the New Year...A positive part is now to remain anonymous, you can walk into your Bank wearing a mask and not be questioned or look suspicious LMAO...


12-21-2020   Newshound Jeff   Iraq just basically came out saying that the value of the dinar against the dollar has devalued...devaluing the currency, which is reducing purchasing power - it's a last-ditch effort to squeeze the three zero notes out of the citizens.  That's all this is...a last-ditch effort to reduce the amount of dinar in the county of Iraq...it's nothing more than a distraction to mislead us, confuse us and to get us to get rid of our dinar...



12-21-2020   Newshound Kaperoni  As we watch events unfold the past week in Iraq, it appears that Iraq has decided to finally float the dinar.  Today's initial devaluation appears to be the first step in this process.  Many asked me if they floated what would the rate be?  I said...right where it is right now!  This devaluation hopefully will be the beginning of good things to come.  With the initial devaluation to 1460, it should clear the way for Iraq to launch the private sector.  And in doing so, begin to create a market economy.  The result hopefully will raise the value.  Only time will tell. The next several months should tell a story as to whether or not Iraq's economy is going to rebound and take off. Today was the first step...

Well, the Gurus  FINALLY  got it right. They SAID that there would be a rate change around the 21st of December and sure enough, the rate changed...... In the wrong direction, but it DID change. Qudos to them for finally being right for the very first time.

 

 

But, on a brighter note, I wonder if this is Iraq's plan...... to put fear into a lot of Dinar holders to sell off some or all of their Dinar so that when the rate goes our way (SOON), they will have a lot less to "pay out". Hmmmm, just a thought.

 

I DO hope that this drop in value didn't entice some to buy more..... which is logical in the buy low sell high mindset. Don't be greedy, folks. Remember, hogs get fat, but pigs get slaughtered. Just own as much Dinar as you can afford to lose.

Our buddy Jeff had a swing and a miss.. “Iraq can only change the rate around the end of their fiscal year, which is April 1st to March 31st.

 

and when it happened Sunday he changed his tune to “well, that was a small change”... umm no Jeff, if you lost 20+% purchasing power of your money overnight, I doubt you would think that it was a small change..

Actually , that is a good advice for dinar investors not to be greedy. But as long as the dinar dealers and ebay still sell them, then there will always be buyers. That is just about supply and demand. Unless they stop selling them , then may be that is the sign of rv coming within a day,  like one day before the rv comes.

You are half right and half wrong. It depends on each individual. If people need the cash very badly and desperately for whatever reasons, then they will sell their dinars for dollars. If not, then they will still keep and hold them until the rv comes.

      *** MilitiaMan *** There are massive demonstrations on going, etc...Everyone knows that going to a market economy is based on the country being Article 8 Compliant with freedom of capital movement.   We see proof of that now in the markets and the implementation of projects. Massive ones!! Port of Faw, GE, etc... They didn’t agree on the financing at a program rate, imo.

       
      *** Footforward *** ...the dinar rate...will be one to one...I very specifically tell people it's my opinion..! 
       
       
      That's all for today folks ... Blessings ... RON

      *** MilitiaMan *** Article: "After April 9, 2003 .. Prospects for Financial Development and Existing Challenges"  Quote: "...the issuance of the new currency, which resulted in** raising the price of the Iraqi dinar and making it get out of the prison in which he lived during the era of the previous regime, and his purchasing power improved rapidly, with financial and economic measures taken." And that "the Iraqi dinar, after 18 years, has become stronger than many currencies of neighboring countries, and others, regionally and globally, with the availability of a monetary block that is good compared to the Current circumstances..."  Let that start to sink in... The issuance of a new currency...One where they raised the price of the IQD... But be sure, imo...they are telling us what has been done and in my opinion to be exposed...imo!...(wink)     *** sheila *** ...especially expectant this week. From what I am reading...April 14th is next Iraq Gazette issue and April 15th is when UN Operational Rates should be updated and posted...[IMO]...     *** RVAlready *** The CBI does not need the budget to be in the gazette. They are setting the exchange rate for the currency. They do not require the budget in the gazette to do that.
        That's all for today folks...a really light day...Blessings...RON

      *** Kaperoni *** The president of the Republic of Iraq has signed off on the 2021 budget. They began implementing it Thursday...

       
      *** MilitiaMan *** I'm just glad to see that the central bank has been in the process of improving the exchange process. It looks good, really good...

       
      *** Frank26 *** Never in the history of Iraq have we ever seen a budget approved signed sealed and delivered and implemented.  Never.  The dictatorships of Iraq have always stolen the money.  Not only from the government but from the CBI auctions...what does the budget have to do with the monetary reform?  A lot.  The exchange rate is it.  The HCL is in there...

      *** Pimpy *** Article: "The president of the Republic approves the 2021 budget and returns it to the government to implement it, starting tomorrow"  Yay - finally it's been ratified.  No rate change was in there unfortunately.  We'd love to see one...congrats - the budget is done...this is great. This is what we want to see...these are big steps in the right direction...



      *** Frank26 *** Allawi Video Quote: "We started with reforms, we started the process of automation, reform processes related to the currency and the exchange rate, and these are all measures aimed at straightening the Iraqi economy." ...amen, glory hallelujah, praise God..! ...this is it right here.

      *** Petra  Guess who's coming to Iraq in a couple days?  Barzani the head of Kurdistan...his deal is done.  He got his 13.97% which is a lot more than I thought he was going to get...he's coming to town.  Why would he be coming to town?  It's not to negotiate some more for his contract.  He's got it.  It's signed.  It's done...the timing...it makes a lot of sense.  


      *** MilitiaMan  Article: "US-Iraq strategic dialogue to take place on April 7"  Quote: "The relationship between the US and Iraq, including its military presence in the country, is based on a strategic framework agreement signed in 2008. It called for close defense co-operation to deter threats to Iraq's “sovereignty, security and territorial integrity."   The talks, due to take place next Wednesday, will focus on security, counterterrorism, economics and energy, political issues, and educational and cultural co-operation.  Gotta love the timing of things...The economics and energy has my attention for obvious reasons... The oil deals we see of late are all about economics, yet, security is a part of that and big time too. The Tripartite with Jordan and Egyptis the following day... Watch and see... This is all for a purpose... I like it! imo...

       
      *** Ray  A Shafq News source reported that President Saleh has ratified the 2021 Budget Law and returned it to the Ministry of Finance to start work on it for Thursday.

       
      *** Petra  This is the endgame.  This is what we've been waiting for...once that thing [the 2021 passed budget] is signed that is game over...it's gonna be the last second and they'll release the parade.  But they are officially on the clock so that's the good news.  It's getting sweeter and sweeter every day because every day we're getting closer and closer to what we're waiting for.  So yeah all very very exciting...

       
      *** Frank26  Article: "After weeks of delay, Iraq's council of representatives passes budget for 2021"  The fact that this budget has been passed is only because they have a new exchange rate.  They have never had one before...

       
      *** Pimpy  Again I have to bring this up because people are asking me.  Again, no, there is no 1 for 1 exchange rate happening in Iraq.  That's false.  I told you guys what that would create.  A huge large black market of the Iraqi dinar.  You would have people buying cheap out of country smuggling the in country exchange the 1 for 1 grabbing their profits and running back out of country buying more dinar and going back in.  When the exchange rate happens it happens inside country and out of country all at the same time...
       
       
       
      *** MilitiaMan  the main thing is, is that they tell us the budget will be applied retroactively for many many months.  Implementing that retroactively from the 31st tells you them stopping the auctions has all been timed...for this particular purpose because it's all about the exchange rate...it's awesome.  Good deal.
