8-17-2017 Intel Guru Frank26 […is the main event going to be down to any one event or a collection of the events at the same time?] NOT ”ONE” THING IS THE MR [MONETARY REFORM]…THERE ARE A CONVERSION OF EVENTS THAT R HAPPENING NOW…AND RATHER QUICKLY…WHICH IS VERY IMPRESSIVE FOR THE ME. THE KEY…NOW IS…ART 140. WHY…BECAUSE IT WILL GIVE US THE BUDGET AND HCL…ALSO…THE INTERNATIONAL ACTIVITY RT NOW IS BRING US ART 8…BECAUSE THE INVESTORS ARE PUSHING IT ALONG WITH…THE WTO …WHICH IS ALSO THE SAME AS SAYING THE USA…
8-17-2017 Newshound Guru Walkingstick …I believe there is confusion… regarding the “Independence Referendum” and “Article 140 Kirkuk Referendum”…They are 2 totally separate issues…The “Independence Referendum”…seeking independence, becoming an independent state… We have read many articles,…Including a release by the UN stating… It is illegal, not per their Constitution. Article 140 also known as the (Kirkuk Referendum ).. In an nut shell: Reverse the Arabization carried out under Saddam’s rule, re-demarcation of the regional borders under the Baath in 1968 and further by Saddam…In turn deciding whether Kirkuk, Diyala, Ninawa and others fall within the Kurdistan regional borders, become part of the Kurdistan region…They must accomplish complete normalization of those regions and conduct a census of Kirkuk…Moving forward: conclude with a referendum in Kirkuk and the other disputed territories to determine the will of their citizens…Mind you.. This is, a very brief explanation…
8-17-2017 Newshound Guru Kaperoni …the recent IMF Article IV is very important…Not only does it lay out the steps for the CBI, we are seeing the CBI take action in recent days as a result. In the last few days, we have seen in Iraq, the private banks continue training and the CBI announce a conference for AML…all recommendations from the IMF.
8-17-2017 Intel Guru Frank26 […you have indicated no RV in Aug but are you still very positive about this year?] …MY OPINION…OH %$#@! YES.
8-17-2017 Newshound Guru mike Article: “The government and the central bank repacking world confidence of the Iraqi economy” IF Iraq does what the IMF has advised them, the reserves will go up. Things like enforcing tariff’s, reducing government payroll/expenses and diversifying the economy, all of which will reduce the need for the CBI to prop up the Iraqi economy and cause a loss of the reserves.
8-17-2017 Intel Guru Okie_Oil_Man [Long time no see…glad you are feeling better!] Hello America, ships at sea and all our world wide friends…I’m very pleased to be here…It’s been quite a ride for all of us…If we were cowboys we would all have saddle sores.

8-16-2017 Intel Guru Frank26 [When was the 4 day CBI holiday scheduled? ] THIS WEEKEND I BELIEVE… FASCINATING ISNT IT?
8-16-2017 Intel/Newshound Guru tman23 A FLOAT with 3 zero notes in circulation MAKES ZERO SENSE! …Now remove the 3 zeros from the 3 zero notes at exchange…AND then they will possibly float it… The CBI said the 3 zero notes would circulate in the market place along side the new notes and take approx 2 years to before they are out of the market…but the CBI would honor them for 10 years…
8-16-2017 Newshound Guru Adam Montana […more and more I am thinking that before the HCL is even voted on, the Parliament is waiting for the CBI to make sure all the little things they need to do are done before they will even consider the HCL. When Parliament sees the CBI is ready, they will pass the HCL.] I think CBI and parliament are equally important. They both have to be ready… but in that regard, I believe the CBI is ready already.
8-16-2017 Intel Guru RayRen98 …meetings continued with the Kurds about the referendum. Abadi was on the television today to say he met with the Kurds yesterday, with a positive meeting for three hours, without other details. The Kurds have also put out that 1. November is the date they will vote on independence, with the referendum in September. No one knows if that will affect the RV. …waiting for more solid information about what to expect next as we wait for 21. August to see how this unfolds. Iraq citizens have been told that is the day. This doesn’t mean WE will be in the bank on the 21st, but we should get some good solid information on when we can exchange.
8-16-2017 Intel/Newshound Guru American Contractor There is lots of chatter referencing Article 140, however, many of you do not realize that it is no longer a viable point in politics. Last week, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) published a statement in regards to becoming an independent state by a vote. There are certain countries in the world that are opposed to this, the Iraqi government being one, and so it is unlikely that it will happen. It appears that the idea of an independent KRG is simply wishful thinking.
8-16-2017 Newshound Guru G-Lin Article: “Abadi confirms the launch of candidacy to apply for senior positions and independent bodies” Quote: “Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Wednesday announced the nomination of candidates for senior positions and independent bodies within his reform program.” Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of proxy positions.
8-16-2017 Newshound Guru Adam Montana First I’ll state the obvious – no HCL and no RV at this time. Now, an item that has been popping up in the news and in dinar discussions a lot is article 140. Most of the time when these articles or topics come up, unless it has something to do directly with the HCl, I tend to be a naysayer about their relevance… This one is slightly different. …it might be a good idea to have a background on what article 140 actually is. In a nutshell, there are several areas that Erbil / the Kurdish government is attempting to claim as theirs, but are currently arguably under the Iraqi government rule, regardless of where they rightfully belong. …there is a power struggle going on and neither side would willingly walk away or give in without a good reason… At this time the Kurds would not want to give them up because obviously they want the land and also the resources under the land, in addition to the historical and religious reasons. Baghdad currently has a stronger political argument for ownership, plus they do not want to see the Kurdish region secede.
8-16-2017 Newshound Guru Adam Montana As stated by that author, the questions asked and games that are being played with the regions people’s are pretty much just trick questions. They are being asked if they want independence, and not given a full understanding of what the question actually means, so there is a lot of ambiguity in the surveys and what is being reported to them and to the outside world. But let’s forget about that, and think about it in another way. With the IQD being so undervalued, it actually would benefit the Kurds to separate and establish their own currency, which would probably be drastically higher than what the Iraqi dinar is right now. This would be next to impossible, for many reasons, but let’s skip that for now.
8-16-2017 Newshound Guru Adam Montana Baghdad does not want the Kurds to separate for the same reason, and also because that would mean they instantly lose a good portion of their oil reserves and would lessen their ability to create a stronger dinar for the entire country. Some are saying that the HCL cannot go through without article 140 resolved, but it is also possible that by pushing the HCL through, and creating a stronger dinar for everyone including those in the contested regions, and those peoples would no longer have as strong of a desire for independence, and therefore end the entire dispute. Obviously that does not give you a date or a rate but I hope the food for thought is encouraging..
