Iraqi Dinar Guru opinions 4-1-16
4-1-2016 Newshound Guru Aggiedad77 If I may chime in on this whole Abadi Cabinet thing for a short minute or two or three…I know he brought forth what appears to be a decent list of names today…decent enough that it seems Sadr is calling the dogs off for a short while and encouraging Parliament to give serious consideration to the list of names…that by itself is encouraging IMO…Also I think Parliament made a good move today after they heard from Abadi by dismissing for the rest of this day and reconvening on Saturday to talk further about Abadi’s proposal…I know…someone said they had 10 days…but really…why would they need so long…a day and half should be plenty of time to deal with names presented…So will we see some final resolution on Saturday…
4-1-2016 Newshound Guru rcookie [Did Adadi accomplish what was expected in the deadline meeting for today (Thursday)?] YES HE DID…NAMES SUBMITTED…AND POSTED…SADR PACIFIED…GREEN ZONE PROTESTERS GONE…VOTE WITHIN 10 DAYS! PARLIAMENT BACK ON SATURDAY…
4-1-2016 Newshound Guru Kaperoni Until they open the banking system, and move to Article VIII, they have to have auctions to provide a convertible currency (dollar) to pay for imports (food, appliances, vehicles, etc). The solution is to work to get the banking system done, laws passed and have a monetary policy in compliance with the IMF so they can transition to Article VIII and hope the dinar is then accepted/convertible worldwide (freedom of movement of capital). [so far 2% not in sight lol – is a float still viable?] Float can happen anytime. That is up to the CBI and one of the tools of their monetary policy.
4-1-2016 Intel Guru Bruce …there are some security issues they are working out, but the process is moving and we are almost done. I think…the delays are over! We are on alert for the possibility of things happening. we are in the last moments. it is ready to POP! …rates over $4 in Iraq as of today. […where is proof? I don’t see it on Forex?] …will not show up on forex until later on. Proof is that Iraq citizens can use their cards in USA and that was rate of exchange.
3-31-2016 Newshound Guru rcookie cabinet reshuffle…names submitted…vote within 10 days…sadr happy…protesters leaving green zone by his orders…
3-31-2016 Newshound Guru wmawhite this continues to set nicely…who would have ever imagined with fighting a war in 1/3 of his country that the prime minister would take on the challenge of changing his government and upsetting the hogs at the trough. …he could have said no the international community and joined the other hogs at the trough…but, instead, he is continuing to show the international community that he is a true leader.
3-31-2016 RUMOR Guru Mnt Goat Iraq still has work to do prior to any RV of it’s currency… “THE IQD IS NOT INTERNATIONAL”. This is not why U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the head of the World Bank where in Iraq over the weekend. Instead they were there for a progress report/checkup from the GOI. Would like to give permission to RV? Yes- but not until all the mandates are completed and Iraq has the STABILITY and SECURITY it needs. However…having said all this I believe this does not mean we should not all be very optimistic. If Iraq could get this new technocratic govt installed and these pro-Iranian politicians (namely Maliki and his goons) out of the govt matters and prosecuted for their corruption, then we have a wonderful chance of moving forward with the economy and affairs of Iraq. I believe everything else will just fall into place and the RV is just one of the resulting events that will occur as a result.
3-31-2016 Newshound Guru wmawhite …the ten days that parliament has to vote on these reforms is directly from their constitution…it gives all members an opportunity to make their opinion known. After which, they will vote because they all have skin in the game.
3-31-2016 Newshound Guru Aggiedad77 Article: “Major scandal ousted officials of power in Iraq, most notably al-Shahristani” Quote: “…millions of dollars spent in bribes to Iraqi officials during the period between 2005 until 2014, some obtained by Shahristani…” Some of you old-timers…may remember the oil auctions (2-3 of them as I remember) that date back to 2009…Shahristani and others were a huge part of those auctions…something didn’t ring right to me back then and it is all coming to light now…better late than never…what an all-encompassing scandal this is turning out to be for sure…you can run but you cannot hide.
3-31-2016 Intel/Newshound Guru tman23 All the GOI BS aside… This past weekend was big in Iraq with visitors…give it 7 days…April 4 to see if change arrives…All the political posturing is just that…they need to deliver tangible to the citizens…The political game of musical chairs and vision of a great Iraq mean squat to the starving people… Currency has the strongest psychological impact on the people of a nation…Sunni, Shiite, Kurds, and Turkmen have no love lost between them… Come April 4th (Monday)…Abadi can be a HERO or a HEEL…and as of right now his support factor is fading fast…except with shiite alliances.
3-31-2016 Newshound Guru Kaperoni Article quote: “Handed Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, on Thursday, the names of the new ministerial cabin closed envelope and leave the ball in the court of parliament, among the new cabinet reshuffle, 16 ministers and comprehensive consist of each Iraqi people.” From reading a few of these articles this morning I see Abadi reduced his cabinet from 18 to 16 and parliament has 10 days to vote on this new line up.
3-31-2016 Newshound Guru rcookie so much CONTRADICTING INFORMATION ABOUT RESHUFFLE THIS MORNING…NUMBER OF CHANGES (SOME SAY 14 SOME SAY 9)…JAAFARI AND SHARASTINI INCLUDED OR NOT…SECURITY MINISTRIES INCLUDED OR NOT…MINISTRY TOAL [TOTAL ?] DOWN TO 18…AND SOME STATING A VOTE WITHIN 10 DAYS…
3-31-2016 Intel/Newshound Guru Poppy3 SADR IS PUTTING THE HEAT ON THEM ALL. HE LIKE US WANT ACTIONS NOT MORE EMPTY PROMISES OF ACTION AND SETTING DEADLINES THAT ARE NEVER MET. …WE ALL KNOW EVEN THE IMF HAVE SET MANY GOALS THAT PARLIAMENT AND ABADI HAVE FAILED TO MEET. …WATCH THEIR ACTIONS AND NOT LISTEN TO THEIR WORDS. THIS GOAL HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED EVEN BY THE IMF AND INCLUDED IN ABADI’S POST MEETING SPEECH SATURDAY EVENING TO THE IRAQ PUBLIC…THIS IS ANOTHER REASON SADR IS PISSED AND PUSHING HARD ON ALL THE POLITICAL LEADERSHIP. HIS THREATS WILL BE POWERFUL. WE STAND AND WAIT. TIME WILL TELL THE FACTS SOON.
