StephenMac63: You are on the right track, just a day off. When they say Wednesday, its their Wednesday which is our Tuesday. Right now its our Thursday meaning two days have passed….as it is Friday in Iraq, so as a poster stated, I think it was Cole, 2 days down and three to go.

StephenMac63: A thought came across my mind….just how do you retro the rate to the beginning of the year…. well,it could be pretty easy as the info has been missing from the CBI website from the beginning of the year and everything has been kept out of public eyes.
So for all purposes they are still working off of last years rate. Meaning that when the budget is opened/internationalism goes into effect, they will retro from the beginning of the year….along with the budget.
Since its 4/20/17 and lets imagine they opened/ announced today, Joe Shmoe in some ministry will not get a “dinar count” of value…..he will get a percentage of the budget, hcl is supposingly 17ish percent…..so my theory is no matter what ministry, they each will get a percentage.
In the end they will get less dinar notes because it will have greater value. Right now we are seeing articles stating that so and so ministry is getting billions of dinars. Thats going to change. They will wind up with a percentage of budget instead, doesnt matter how many dinars.
And this is how I can see them retro from the beginning of Jan. Less Note count, more value, equals percentage of budget. What is more important is the percentage of budget, not the number of dinars
At least thats my thinking at the moment, feel free to correct if Im off-track.
JeffDavis: Hello everyone. I have a question about something that I should already fully understand but don’t. Please explain the 76 window after RV. It could be open forum or pm. Thanks and sorry for asking about this since I should already know the answer.

Aggiedad77: FROM THE CBI THIS MORNING FAMILY….ARABIC SIDE ANNOUNCEMENT
( Statement) in order to clarify the full picture about the branches of foreign banks dealing with the sale of foreign currency window We would like to show follows
The branches of foreign banks operating in Iraq, representing the bank president with all its potential, including the capital and the claim of the Central Bank of Iraq to the need to provide these branches (seventy billion dinars) is only operational capital and does not represent the entire share capital of the bank.
The entry of the sale of foreign currency window for banks operating in Iraq in general be approved by the Central Bank of Iraq standards and accounting firms of international solid and are available for all banks to see them and thus when they exceed some branches of foreign banks , these criteria are excluded from entering the window either when matching standards , as is the case with all Iraqi banks will get the maturity and there is no discrimination deal for the Central Bank of Iraq between banks operating in Iraq , whether foreign or Iraqi , but on the basis of classification because it forms part of the Iraqi banking system .
Note that the number of Arab and foreign banks do not enter the window of the sale of foreign currency intervention or already in limited quantities and that the share of the Iraqi banks continue to represent the largest proportion of dollar sales. Aloha Randy
