10-4-2012: Iraqi Dinar Guru guesses!!!
10-4-2012 Intel Guru BOBGETZ6 [10:36 AM] I have heard of a possibility today, but it is not a confirmed exact thing. I hear there is excitment and expectation. I would urge being grounded until information is confirmed.
10-4-2012 Newshound/Intel Guru BGG Article: “Talabani and Maliki agree on a road map out of the thought of the current crisis” This is the prelim to the “final meetings” – …the final piece of the puzzle was for Talibani and Maliki to meet before Talibani meets with Allawi and Barzani. It could signal that we are either very, very close to the end or the veil is about to be pulled back. One of the two.
10-4-2012 Newshound Guru Adam Montana I think we are going to get a 90 days to a year before they phase out the current currency. If we are lucky, and if they are smart, they will allow the value to grow as they are exchanging old for new notes. The CBI can make a ton of money doing this.
10-3-2012 Intel Guru Soonerfan62 I AM REAL EXCITED ABOUT WHERE WE ARE AT. I WILL ASSURE YOU WE ARE IN A GREAT POSITION TONIGHT. MANY THANKS TO MADAME WU AND HER TEAM AND THE IMF, UST, UN, BIS, AND ALL THE OTHERS THAT HAVE WORKED COUNTLESS HOURS TO GET THIS DONE FOR US. [can u advise us did iraq receive the smart cards today] YES [are the smart cards activated?] YES [Is it done?] WE ARE THERE IMO.
10-3-2012 Newshound Guru Adam Montana Regarding Chapter 7… has anyone noticed that there’s not much news about it lately? I sure have. In my opinion, the reason is very simple. All of the requirements to be released from Chapter 7 have been fullfilled, and it’s just a rubber stamp issue at this time. Therefore, they are focused on more important issues such as the HCL and the things necessary to regaining their wealth.
10-3-2012 Intel Guru Blaino IT’S NOT THAT THE KURDISTAN ALLIANCE DOESN’T WANT THE IMPROVEMENTS, IT’S THAT WALKING OUT ADDS TREMENDOUS PRESSURE ON “DEALS MADE” AND THOSE IN THE WORKS…. (FOLLOW THE MONEY!) AS IT NOW APPEARS THAT UNLESS AND UNTIL MALIKI AND THE ALLIANCE GETS IT TOGETHER ON THIS… WE ARE ON HOLD. WE CANNOT GET A VOTE ON ANYTHING ELSE…TILL THIS AT LEAST IS OVERCOME. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE ISSUES CHOKING THE BOTTLENECK ALL THINGS “RV” NEED TO PASS THROUGH. LET’S HOPE THIS IS ONE OF THE LAST REMAINING MARKERS WE NEED TO GET PAST. I AM EXTENDING THE CURRENT “PASS” UNTIL 8PM BAGHDAD TIME ON TUESDAY. THAT WILL BE NOON TIME HERE (CENTRAL TIME) AS THEY ARE 8 HOURS AHEAD OF CENTRAL TIME, US. [post 2 of 2]
10-3-2012 Intel Guru Blaino THERE IS FRESH NEWS REGARDING MALIKI AND PARLIAMENT. THE IRAQI KURDISTAN ALLIANCE IS CURRENTLY GETTING BUTTERED UP BY MALIKI AS REGARDS SEVERAL INFRASTRUCTURE CONTRACTS AS A CARROT TO ATTEMPT TO AMELIORATE THE STRESS AND TENSIONS BETWEEN THE PARTIES….AS OF NOW, $42B IN CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS ARE IN LIMBO SINCE THE KURDISTAN ALLIANCE WITHDREW IT’S MINISTERS FROM THE BATTLEFIELD BEFORE THE VOTE COULD BE ACCOMPLISHED. THIS FORCED A DELAY WHICH MAY BE RESOLVED ON THURSDAY… BUT THE POSTPONEMENT WILL BE THROUGH TUESDAY WHEN THEY RECONVENE. [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]
10-3-2012 Newshound Guru Enorrste there is a difference between “changing the value” of the IQD (either free float or RV), on the one hand, and “removing the three zeros”, on the other hand…the talk about delaying the removal of the three zeros until 2014 DOES NOT CONCERN US since we don’t care when they remove the large notes in Iraq. All we care about is the RATE CHANGE. The bottom line is this: the change in the rate MUST precede the removal of the three zeros. Therefore, Saleh has no problem moving the date back on the removal of the three zeros to 2014. Why? Because he knows that they will all disappear automatically from the market when the RATE changes to $1, or more. This means that the date of 2014 could be 2024 for all he cares. The notes will disappear as soon as the rate gets to $1 or more! he drops another hint to us to allow us to see that the process of removing the three zeros is NO LONGER TIED to the RATE!
10-3-2012 Intel Guru Blaino Shabibi is the best central bank person in the last 100 years, we just don’t like his timeline. We wonder what are they doing and what are they waiting for. Lots of moving parts and if they are not lined up properly, it comes to a stop. The confluence, the convergence is coming about…Lots of pressure. Lots of events they are trying to get done.
10-3-2012 Newshound Guru Kaperoni They are not waiting another year to begin. They will wait IMO before they officially “delete the zeros” but the float will begin soon to raise the value naturally based on demand and that is all we care about. This is absolutely necessary to move forward economically, enter the WTO, ISX, and start to bring in the investment needed to rebuild. Remember the condition of the current currency? No doubt in my mind that the dinar will rise in value very soon which will allow them to use the smaller denoms that they already have. It has been a tough ride for us for sure…keep in mind we spent years searching, debunking the 3 + initial rate, to get to a 1 to $1 rate…then a “staging rate”, only to get information of free float. It for sure has been an evolution.
