Dinar Updates: 

tman23  There are 2 types of news in Iraq… The news we get from press releases and then the news on the streets which is only for Iraqi’s… And inside Iraq they are trying to hold it together with more talk…

But the reality is, it is about to explode internally if they do not come up with immediate solutions…and those solutions require money… LOTS OF MONEY!!!

Q: [Is it True Iraq has 60 days to RV?] 

BGG   not exactly – the WB [World Bank]  has given Iraq 60 days to deal with their money laundering issue...which should, at some point shortly after they do – open the door for a very different regime… (more PRO-currency reform) – short answer…it is far more possible once they satisfy the WB.

Iraqi government declares 4-day holiday over severe heatwave

By Associated Press July 29 at 5:58 AM
BAGHDAD — Iraq’s Council of Ministers has declared a four-day mandatory holiday beginning Thursday as temperatures are set to soar above 50 degrees Celsius (123 degrees Fahrenheit).

The statement, delivered on state-run Iraqiyya TV, is the second heat advisory issued by the Iraqi government this month.

High summer temperatures are standard in Iraq, but widespread power and water cuts complicate everyday life when the temperatures soar.

Residents are typically advised to limit any outdoor activities for the duration of the heat wave.

Jdtolle:  » July 29th, 2015, Work past the disappointments

Don’t dwell endlessly on what’s wrong. Do something positive, and change your momentum.

When things are tough and life is unfair, the least effective strategy is to complain about it. The most effective strategy is to get busy.

You’re better than the problems. The way to prove that to yourself and to the world is with your actions.

You deserve to feel like you’re on top of the world, so give yourself what you deserve. Embrace the effort, persist through the challenges, and experience the satisfaction of making a real difference.

Treat every situation as an opportunity for positive and meaningful work. Seize the treasure in every moment by doing something useful with the moment.

Delight your senses and your sense of purpose by jumping into action. Work your way past the disappointments, and up to a whole new level of fulfillment.

Ralph Marston   Wishing All a safe and blessed day   JDT

P.S. The only people who never fail are those who never try.– Ilka Chase

Memphis:  anytime I have seen a discussion turn to currency values things always get complicated really quickly. 

Why is that?  Well easy!  It is the language of finance and this language requires study like any other! 

Ultimately when we discuss currencies being “pegged” we are speaking of an outside influence attempting to control a sovereign nations money and dictate it’s value RATHER THAN the alternative of true free market capitalism wherein we allow free market forces (Adam Smith’s invisible hand) determine the value. 
….
The above is important as a starting point because it then allows us to make the discussion  clear by using a comparison to gold. 

Many have predicted a return to gold backed currency by the UST and/or the FED and/or other nations and yet I have been resolute and clear in voicing my opposition and saying this will never happen. 

Anyone ever wondered why I have even bothered to give an opinion?  It is certainly not because I seek fame.  There has long been entirely too much “bs” in this investment and tho it seems at times that few have gotten the message it doesn’t change the fact that it is important for us to understand WHY? 

Why is a gold backed currency contrary to the ( unstoppable) financial cycle that controls our world?  EVEN IF we did see such a thing attempted?  It would not be a solution to anything and would end terribly as it always has. 

A fixed money supply means all the rules change!  We in America have grown up under an expanding money supply and have forgotten (never known) the realities of such a system. 

Ok back on point…

We can compare a currency peg to a gold standard or gold backed currency by recognizing that they are both on the same side of the coin.  (last sentence underlined)

They are each simply attempts to control (to quench) the free market value and dictate what some person or gov’t believes it should be. 

With a currency pegged to gold (a gold backed currency) the money’s value is then allowed to fluctuate only as gold fluctuates in price or else the price of gold is fixed and then the currency then has a fixed value. 

This then holds true until such time as more of the $ is put into circulation (currency debasement) at which point it becomes “worth less” than the day before. 

I need to cut this short because my aim is to help clarify and not further confuse so let’s finish by now speaking of a currency “peg”.

A peg can take one of two forms.  It can be allowed to move within a small range and under this arrangement is called a “floating peg” OR it can be even further controlled such that it never moves and is then called a “fixed peg”.  

Each type of peg is currently in use in our world with floating being much more commonly employed.  One example of a currency being fixed would be the Hong Kong $ (HKD) such that it’s value never changes relative to the USD;  the ratio between the two, the exchange value, never changes even over the last several months with the ever increasing USD!

Whether right or wrong, I think of the IQD presently as having a fixed exchange value; a fixed peg.  It fits the definition in that it’s value is not allowed to fluctuate and is everyday the same RELATIVE value regardless of which currency we compare it to. 

Now this is not meant to imply that using a term such as artificial exchange or program rate are bad.  If a thing is UNDERSTOOD by using a term then by all means use it!  The key point here is that Iraq’s currency is presently being CONTROLLED against any and all market forces and the built up pressure that is surely created will and must eventually be….released. 

Armstrong has written at length on pegs and why they fail…every time.  He in fact told a group of investors over a year ago that the Swiss peg to the Euro would fail but few considered his words at the time!  Let’s finish here with a quote from one of his blogs this past Saturday:

“Bretton Woods collapsed because they fixed the price of gold and not the quantity of dollars. The collapse of Bretton Woods was not a banker’s plot nor was it any different from creating the euro, which was established on a completely unsound foundation. 

Putting it nicely…fixed exchange rates are always comical [to me because] such schemes are always the design of a mob of lawyers who are clueless and believe they can control and force the world to do as they command.  NO PEG has ever lasted; all will collapse.

PEGS that float within a range last longer than those that are FIXED. At the end of the day, they all go the same way: down.”

A use that requires it to be INTERNATIONAL.

That use will spur a DEMAND.

The demand will spur VALUE.

US media are criticizing “strict, decades-old restrictions” that will continue to prohibit trade with Iran even after sanctions against the country are lifted.

The Wall Street Daily has warned in an article that US corporations are set to lose big to their European and Asian rivals once the gates to the Iranian market open in a post-sanction period.

 Iran says will pick best trade partners  http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/07/28/422230/Iran-Will-Pick-Best-Trade-Partners–

Iran says it will from now on pick and choose its trade partners , adding that it does not want an expected opening of its doors to investors in a post-sanctions period to lead to excessive imports of foreign goods.

“Our conditions today are different from the past,” Mohammad-Baqer Nobakht, Iran’s government spokesman, has told reporters. 

“In the post-sanctions period, we are not forced to deal with only a handful of countries. Rather, there are various businesses [that are interested to enter the Iranian market] and we have the power to choose the best,” he added.

Sager:  Mary I’m thinking that the US “letting” this slip by is just part of the design for the US to let go of some muscle… remember they will be part of 5 in the new SDR… perhaps that’s just them “allowing” the rest to gain ground?

MY LADIES:  PERHAPS BUT DOES THAT TRICLE DOWN TO THE US LITTLE GUY OR MIDDLE GUY THAT COULD BENIFIT FROM TRADEING WITH IRAN

The Silk Road or Silk Route–an ancient network of trade routes that connected the West and East by merchants and pilgrims from China and India to the Mediterranean Sea—inspired the name of the initiative to promote open skies in the region.

In a Monday meeting with Iraqi President Fouad Massoum in Baghdad, Zarif referred to the recent conclusion of nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 and said the agreement reached at the end of the talks was made possible as a result of a fresh perspective by the Islamic Republic.

“This new outlook can also be drawn upon to settle regional woes as well,” Zarif said.

Let’s think positive but not avoid the obvious. There is a ‘$273 TRILLION Derivatives Bubble’.

Of the 50 safest banks in the world, only 5 are in the US. The best in the US is ranked only 39 out of the 50. The USD is near its apex. Gold is at its nearest low. The GCR will probably reverse that.

An Iraq RV is imminent. The planet finances are beckoning the obvious. Here comes the GCR with probable $5,000 gold, $250 Silver and a BRICS driven RMB reserve currency.

Prepare and buckle up. The financial wind currents are getting stronger by the day.

History does repeat itself though in different forms. Man thinks his future is 1.power and 2.money though the Alpha and Omega rules.

The GCR is about a gold/silver reset, yes… for they are currencies. The gold is almost cornered in the East; thus our GCR. I Love You All.

Iron ore, the US dollar, capital headwinds: Reporting season's big themes …

Sydney Morning Herald1 hour ago

Reporting season kicks off next week and equity investors are expecting weeks of results characterised by the falling dollar, devastated commodity prices, a range of new regulatory measures facing banks and weak growth across all industries.

Investing.com –

Investing.com – The New Zealand dollar jumped on Wednesday after the central bank governor said it should be weaker consistent with the economy while adding that sharply lower interest rates are not the way to that goal.

NZD/USD traded at 0.6720, up 0.62%, while AUD/USD traded at 0.7342, up 0.09% and USD/JPY changed hands at 123.59, up 0.02%.

A weaker New Zealand dollar would be consistent with current economic conditions, Reserve Bank of New Zealand Bank Governor Graeme Wheeler said Wednesday in a speech on monetary policy, dismissing predictions for large declines in interest rates because that would be consistent with the economy moving into recession.

“Our models suggest that the real exchange rate is currently in the vicinity of its long-run equilibrium value – if growth, inflation, and the terms of trade were at their long-run trends. However, the exchange rate remains above the level consistent with current economic conditions and, in particular, the current low level of export prices,” Wheeler said in a speech delivered to ExportNZ in Tauranga, New Zealand.

The current account deficit level is expected to become larger over the next two years based on recent New Zealand dollar level and terms of trade, he said.

“At current levels of export prices, a more substantial exchange rate depreciation is therefore required to stabilise the net external liabilities position relative to GDP,” he said.

Ahead are Japan retail sales for June with a 0.5% gain seen year-on-year.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, fell 0.01% to 96.75.

Overnight, the dollar trimmed gains against most of the other major currencies on Tuesday, after data showed that U.S. consumer confidence deteriorated this month, while markets awaited the conclusion of the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting this week.

The Conference Board, a market research group, said its index of consumer confidence fell to 90.9 this month from a downwardly revised 99.8 in June. Economists had forecast a reading of 100.0.

A less optimistic outlook for the labor market, as well as uncertainty and volatility in financial markets prompted by the situation in Greece and China sapped investor sentiment, the report said.

Other reports earlier Tuesday showed that U.S. house price growth stalled in May, while activity in the service sector picked up this month.

Investors were looking ahead to Wednesday’s Fed statement to see if policymakers would give any indication on the timing of an initial rate hike.

Fed Chair Janet Yellen has said the central bank could raise rates as soon as September if the economy continues to improve as expected.

The U.S. was to release figures on second quarter growth on Thursday, which were expected to show that the economy rebounded following a contraction in the first quarter following an unusually harsh winter.

Volatility in Chinese equity markets has roiled the Aussie, because of the country’s strong trade links to China.

BOTH IN AND OUT OF IRAQ

IF WE DON’T SEE THIS WE SHOULD NOT DESPAIR BUT INSTEAD WATCH AS THE DAYS GO BY IN THE MONTH OF AUGUST  TO FIND THESE THINGS
….

I WANT TO TALK ABOUT OUR MILITARY ASSAULT BUT LIMITED RIGHT NOW AND YET THAT IS A VERY STRONG ISSUE AT THE MOMENT BECAUSE IT IS IMPRESSIVE

BONDS CONTINUE TO BE SOMETHING WORTHY OF WATCHING

THE 30-45 DAY WINDOW THAT WE’VE TALKED ABOUT PERTAINS TO THE BONDS

THERE WILL BE MORE TALK ON TEAM CHAT ON THURSDAY ABOUT THE BONDS AS WELL AS ON THE NEXT MONDAY NIGHT CC

FIRST WE BELIEVE THE DOMESTIC BONDS WILL BE SEEN AT THE 1095 LEVEL TO ENTICE THE IRAQI CITIZENS TO COME INTO THE BANKS AND TO INTEREST THEM IN PARTICIPATING IN THE SALE OF THE 2 BILLION IN DOMESTIC BONDS

THIS CHANGE FROM 1166 IS THAT “ATTRACTION” OR ENTICEMENT THAT DR. S KNOWS IS NECESSARY AT THIS TIME
