Sunday 4-22-2012, GURU GUESSES!!
4-22-2012 Mailman17 I TAKE IT THE TAX AND TARRIF LAWS WERE IN THE GAZETTE? ITS MY UNDERSTANDING… EFFECTIVE JUNE 1.THINGS ARE COMING TO A HEAD VERY QUICKLY…AND WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN A TASTE OF WHAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY PLANNING. DONT BE SURPRISED IF ALL OF A SUDDEN THE GOVT GETS FORMED…THE HCL IS PASSED…ERBIL AGREED…I THINK THEY ARE FURTHER ALONG THAN THEY TELL US. I TRULY THINK WE ARE WITHIN A MONTH OR SOONER, SOONER BEING MORE LIKELY.
4-22-2012 SWFloridaGuy The IMF and World Bank addresses Iraqi leaders when instructing them on what remains to be accomplished and congratulates them on what they already have… Iraq is a sovereign nation per the UN. When people say Obama is going to push this through for his reelection, they are misinformed and looking at this from our perspective, not Iraq’s. Shabibi is concerned about inflation, power sharing, corruption, security, stability, a banking sector that is prepared to handle this event and laws and institutions in place that will lead to the success of the project. Iraq has made a ton of progress in these areas and taken many steps in preparation of the raising of their exhange rate, which is what leads us to believe we are close.
4-22-2012 SWFlorida Guy The signs are all there: Iraq is one of the wealthiest nations in the world, currently operating under an artificial rate, fast on the rise, taking steps in preparation to introduce a new currency (LD’s) that have already been printed and paid for, a government in place that will ensure the stability and security, a banking sector with modern technology, the support and instruction of the IMF/World Bank and the rest of the world which will ensure the success of the project. We expect that very soon Iraq will be boasting a higher exchange rate and WE ARE NOT ALONE!
4-22-2012 BWM best I can tell you is that some contacts feel this will not happen yet this weekend, others think we still have a shot for first of the week… so let’s see how the next 24 hours shakes out and go from there.
4-22-2012 SWFloridaGuy The IMF’s report claims that Iraq is a rapidly emerging market with ENORMOUS potential.The total number of investments in Iraq rose 80.4% last year alone. So, clearly we are not alone in seeing Iraq’s potential for growth and recognizing this is a once in a life time opportunity. Also documented in this report is the need for Iraq to implement the Erbil and long time HCL strategy in the next 6 months. Other sources announced that after the preparatory meeting this week Talabani will announce a date for the new national meeting where the goal is to finalize the Erbil/HCL.
4-22-2012 BellaGrits We are hoping we see movement in the next 24-36 hours…the banks were on a roll it seemed and even showed some interesting numbers in some interesting places…that was on Friday until about mid morning…I admit my intel certainly thought we would see this sooner, and I have no idea why we haven’t nor does the contact to be honest. Currently, it appears things are on track and it is merely a timing issue… I truly feel we are finally reaching a point this can’t continue as is any longer– This is not an Iraq issue…IMO, it’s been a little bit of rumbling between (lotta bit) countries and who wants what…all that was resolved as far as I am concerned, and to what degree I can find out. I’ve heard absolutely nothing negative and all positive–very positive.
