DINAR GURUS UPDATE, 20 FEB

2-20-2018   Newshound/Intel Guru BGG 
1) Fewer aucti
ons?
2) Tightening borders (fewer exports)?
3) More demand? I sincerely doubt it.
4) IMHO and most likely, the supply here in the U.S. from disgruntled sellers, which is likely where the bulk of the U.S. supply really comes from, and current interested buyers has finally reached a point of parity where the “supply – demand” scales are more evenly balanced.  Hence, the price goes up.

   Article:  "Central Bank of Iraq Auctions $189,834,222 on 20 February 2018"   ...After recently asking around about the reasons for the “tightening” of the supply of Dinar in the U.S...one of the main reasons I got was the fewer and fewer auctions. Wait – what?!?  They are still having fairly robust auctions.  So, obviously, that’s not true...so what is it?  Another possibility is this MASSIVE financial embargo on Kurdistan, provided this was where currency was coming from.  I have also heard of a couple of major players talking about having money in – or being able to get money out of Kurdistan… all baloney.   So…

2-20-2018  Newshound Guru Don961   I don't believe "After elections" has anything to do with timing of monetary reforms...just that elections come up in less than 3 months and fall into this time mentioned...it may just take that long to set everything up...to everyone's satisfaction...  I would think an RI would go a long way to satisfying investors in the new process...as we have been told 1st hand was discussed heavily at the conference...  I would think high transparency is in order...no matter how much they kick and scream about "interfering in Iraq's affairs" ...because of their history ( Maliki and others )...they have to prove themselves trustworthy.  [post 2 of 2]

2-20-2018  Newshound Guru Don961  Article:  "Abadi vowed to overthrow the corrupt ..

WAR & WAR!  This all spells a BIG INCENTIVE IN BIG MONEY, to hurry up and get a SUBSTANTIAL RATE VALUE INCREASE DONE, not only in IRAQ, but with VIETNAM, and a handful of others, to Stabilize, Balance & INCREASE World Trade mechanisms, which continue to be out of Balance.   [post 2 of 3....stay tuned]

IQD News Update (RANT# 91)

BGG UPDATE, 20 FEB

Iraq prime minister promises corruption crackdown, says laws will protect nervous foreign investors
 
More than six months after Iraq’s leadership proclaimed the defeat of ISIS on Iraqi territory, the country is on a path to rebuild and has seen promising signs of international investment for its reconstruction.
 
“We are laying down all the legal framework … I think the worry is corruption, number one, which is hiding behind red tape and bureaucracy. We have established a higher committee which is headed by the prime minister and it has a follow up team to make sure to remove blocks as they are there because of the bureaucracy,” Al-Abadi said.

Al-Abadi appeared confident, despite the significant challenges ahead.
 
“I think now that the process of engaging investors in Iraq, I am sure in the next few months will be the foundation of this. We’ve already appointed a committee. Next month is going to be a meeting with major investors to follow up … And I hope that after the election they’ll immediately start.”

BGG ~ In all fairness, I should note a word of caution, though this is reasonably “mainstream”, it feels like an “overly rosy” report. Best case, this is not as I have reported these events. Sounds a lot like “pre-election” rhetoric to me.

Central Bank of Iraq Auctions $190,127,818 on 19 February 2018
 
Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) The Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) currency auction on February 19 registered $190,127,818 in sales, a -2.46% volume decline from the US $194,932,241 sold by Iraqi Dinar, credit and transfer at the previous auction held on February 18.

BGG ~ I will continue to highlight the regular auctions. After recently asking around about the reasons for the “tightening” of the supply of Dinar in the U.S… one of the main reasons I got was the fewer and fewer auctions. Wait – what?!? They are still having fairly robust auctions.
 
So, obviously, that’s not true… so what is it?
 
Another possibility is this MASSIVE financial embargo on Kurdistan, provided this was where currency was coming from.
 
I have also heard of a couple of major players talking about having money in – or being able to get money out of Kurdistan… all baloney. Kurdistan has been under very tight controls since snubbing the world diplomats with this sham vote pushed by Barzani.

Why was it a sham vote? Simple fact: you can’t just take what isn’t yours to take just because you vote on it.
 
Back to my previous rebuttal – anyone who actually had money in Kurdistan would have either gotten it out or is REALLY “up a creek”… likely just more B.S.
 
So…
1) Fewer auctions?
 
2) Tightening borders (fewer exports)?
 
3) More demand? I sincerely doubt it.
 
4) IMHO and most likely, the supply here in the U.S. from disgruntled sellers, which is likely where the bulk of the U.S. supply really comes from, and current interested buyers has finally reached a point of parity where the “supply – demand” scales are more evenly balanced.

Hence, the price goes up.

BGG ~ Funny how that works… about one day after they realize the world isn’t going to “give them” anymore money, they go back and think about getting it back from the crooked politicians who’ve been stealing from the GOI and the people of Iraq.

According to recent estimates, they could collect as much as 500 BILLION (USD) back to the state treasury by enacting and enforcing simple legislation they’ve had in the works for some time now.

P.S. as reported in major OP ED’s in Baghdad recently, Maliki and his henchmen had better wind up on this list…   It is critical to Iraq’s long term success to get a handle on the endemic corruption.

Iraq receives nearly $ 11 billion from Arab and foreign countries for reconstruction

Baghdad Mawazine News – Iraq received nearly 11 billion dollars from Arab and foreign countries during the Kuwait International Conference for the Reconstruction of Iraq.

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, said that “the kingdom has allocated $ 1.5 billion for reconstruction projects in Iraq and the financing of Saudi exports to it.”

The Amir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, announced at the Kuwait International Conference for the Reconstruction of Iraq, on Wednesday, that his country will allocate $ 2 billion in accordance with the mechanism of Kuwait Fund for the reconstruction of Iraq and encourage investment in it.

BGG ~ I keep hearing the complaints about Iraq getting all kinds of “welfare” as though they are living on these “pending grants” and IMF loans (instead of revaluing their currency).

I would be careful in assuming this is the situation or that any of this is any kind of “hold-up” to economic and monetary reform. I doubt so very much. 
​Everyone (as in – the investors and countries) wants to get close, be in on the beginning, but not so much so that they are just giving “hand-outs” with nothing in return. Iraq has to do their part. I get a little bit of the sense Iraq is kind of getting the cart before the horse with this latest conference.

It has long been speculated (and openly reported by Iraqi economists) Iraq would be hit with a “wall” of investment capitol when they truly started economic, monetary and governance reforms. However, it does not appear to me we are quite to this point yet. Everyone wants in – Iraq just don’t have the temperature quite right yet.

Keep in mind… these are “allocations”, “pledges” and “financing” and “projected exports” for projects. Basically these are all “feel good, sweet nothings” at a conference.

Next Monday we’ll see what’s what. Thus far they are well short of the 100 billion in give-aways (and grants) they were asking for.

On the other hand – why should they be given anything (for free)? If they would just pass corruption law(s) currently caught up in their Parliament’s legislative log-jam and then enforce them, their state treasury will swell by an estimated 500 billion (as they have plainly reported).

No need for anything from anyone.

Further, it is my opinion, Iraq should be held to account for (that means – PAY FOR) the military and humanitarian aid tab they’ve run up over the last few years.

IQD CHAT, 20 FEB

Duke_77: does anyone know where to find the M1 money supply numbers on the cbi site?
 
Duke_77: m2 or something
 
chattels: @Duke_77 I have not looked for such since the CBI site changed some months ago.
 
Duke_77: ok I noticed on Guru that some say the circulated supply is 45 trillion. I thought 30 trillion was all that was ever printed
 
Duke_77: Does anyone know what the total is?
 
chattels: @Duke_77 Apparently not if you look at the Ernst and Young report.

Duke_77: https://cbi.iq/static/uploads/up/file-151807773321839.pdf

chattels: @Duke_77 I have seen the 2016 numbers from the Ernst and Young repost. You want the link ?

Duke_77: is that it??
Duke_77: yes

chattels: @Duke_77 Appears so.

Duke_77: is that 745 million notes?
Duke_77: that is not much

chattels: @Duke_77 44 trillion dinars if I am reading it correctly.

Duke_77: 18.625 trillion dinar @ 25,000 per note

Duke_77: ok
Duke_77: oh i see it now

chattels: @Duke_77 44 billion x's 1,000 isn't it ?

Duke_77: is that all in circulation?
Duke_77: yes

chattels: @Duke_77 So it would appear.

chattels: @Duke_77 It is listed under " Liabilities

Duke_77: is that as much as sandy is claiming?

chattels: @Duke_77 https://cbi.iq/static/uploads/up/file-150407743354697.pdf

Tebow: do you really believe what the CBi puts out

chattels: @Duke_77 45 trillion in December 2016

Duke_77: @Tebow do we have any other proof?

Tebow: remember the past liquidity problems they were having

Duke_77: @chattels what number do you think that needs to be to rv?
Duke_77: @Tebow yea true

Tebow: there's your sign

chattels: @Duke_77 My friend, I have no idea. I am a confessed macroeconomic moron.

sandyf: @Tebow: According to the latest CBI financial statement(2016) there is over 45 trillion IQD in circulation.......... 2016. We are not in 2018!! And that's if you believe the Iraqis. Are you sure your not really Kapabolonia - You are perfectly free to dispute the CBI accounts, after all auditors do not mean a great and people have been disputing the accounts for since 2005. Nothing new.

Duke_77: @Tebow since we are seeing the dealers running out, it's an indicator there couldn't be that many notes out

Tebow: 2016 Lol

Duke_77: @chattels me too hahaha

Tebow: I'm in 2018

chattels: I am out for a while, laterz all.

Duke_77: @sandyf kaperoni? LOL!!! He's stuck in a boat with no motor believing he will come floating home
Duke_77: @chattels later dude
sandyf: @Duke_77 Do not put me with the Kap, it is almost odds on cerainty that the IQD will never float.

Duke_77: @sandyf i wasn't. i was joking with you when you called tebow kaperoni, lol

Duke_77: i'm just here to have a good time.
Duke_77: most of all, i want the date and rate!!! LOL!!!

Xbruster69: i think, OIL TRADING, secures an Oil Market, without worrying about the fiat currency value change, keeping the minions oppressed

sandyf: @Duke_77 I never referred to Tebow as Kaperoni, be careful what you say.

Duke_77: who were you calling kap?

Duke_77: 45 trillion dinar is a lower note count!

sandyf: @Duke_77 I didn't call anyone Kap, Tebow said this about me "Are you sure your not really Kapabolonia"

Duke_77: that's 4.5 billion notes @ 10,000 dinar notes only!

Duke_77: when you average the 1,000 to 50,000 notes out, thats only 2.4 billion notes

Duke_77: @sandyf where did you come up with that huge figure as quoted on dinar guru about the payment from iraq if 50% of the notes came back at $4?

Duke_77: @sandyf i have someone on the phone asking me...

Duke_77: @sandyf they asked me to get your expert clarification...
Duke_77: @sandyf please... thank you!!!

sandyf: @Duke_77 "45 trillion dinar is a lower note count!" You mean in circulation, the number of notes mean nothing, circulation was 6.5 trillion in 2005 and 38 trillion in 2015.

Duke_77: @sandyf thats the amount of dinar. not the amount of notes

Duke_77: @sandyf it says currency issued is 44,236,653,559 dinar
Duke_77: @sandyf thats not notes!

sandyf: @Duke_77 To start with I am not an expert. If there are 45 Trillion in circulation and 50% were to be redeemed that would be 22.5 trillion, and if the IQD was worth $4 then it would require 90 trillion USD to redeem, where will Iraq find that amount of money. The number of notes means nothing.

sandyf: @Duke_77 Unless you think it is $4 per note.

Duke_77: there are 45 trillion in circulation, but how much is in the bank vaults? that includes the amount in circulation...

Duke_77: basically you assume circulation means how many are on the streets??

Duke_77: thats how many are in foreign governments, dinar dealers included, and the private banks along with the cbi branches

Duke_77: notice the amount increased from nov 2017 to dec 2017. probably the lower denoms being distributed

Duke_77: it says "currency issued". not on the streets...

sandyf: @Duke_77 I am not assuming anything the figure is from the CBI accounts and would include all dinar other than non issued dinar held by the CBI. Over the years there has been various estimates on the split but the last I saw was somewhere around 10 trillion in Iraq and the rest outside. But as I said that is pure guesstimates.

sandyf: @Duke_77 I should have said all physical dinar.

Duke_77: they have a line called "treasury bills of cbi". they even have the amount in other governments hands listed. this is incredible!!!
Duke_77: @sandyf yes i understand

Duke_77: @sandyf this is better than i thought...

sandyf: @Duke_77 I have to go and do some work

Duke_77: @sandyf ok

DinarResearcher: Reconstruction of Iraq ... without corruption
DinarResearcher: Number of readings: 36  2/20/2018 12:01:00

DinarResearcher: In a three-way conversation that brought me to a minister in an Arab country and a senior Iraqi investment official, on the sidelines of the Iraq Reconstruction Conference held last week in Kuwait, the Arab minister said frankly and directly that he sees Iraq's problem with the world as losing confidence in his country.

The minister, whose country had a good contribution to the grants and investment loans presented at the conference, presented two examples of the experience of his country and its companies, which invested tens of millions of dollars in Iraq, but eventually lost even the basic capital.

"We have not yet known how our money was plundered," the minister said, stressing that without the Iraqi government building confidence in it, what was announced at the Kuwait conference would not be available to Iraq.

DinarResearcher: The Arab minister was in fact a diplomat in his speech. The content of the speech is that those who managed the Iraqi state in the past years are mostly a group of thieves. For this reason, the account of the Iraqi field was not identical to that of the Kuwaiti bidder at last week's conference.

Grants, loans and investments did not come close to the figure that Iraqi government officials kept repeating in anticipation of the $ 88 billion (22 billion short-term) And $ 66 billion over the medium term). However, $ 30 billion, the total of grants, loans and investment credits, is not an easy figure under the current circumstances.

Most of the countries that are able to pay, especially the countries in the region, suffer from considerable economic and financial difficulties The political situation is turbulent against the background of the exacerbation of political conflicts and acts of terrorism and internal wars - foreign in Syria, Yemen and Libya, as well as Iraq itself, the countries depend on the payment does not have the surplus money to donate or provide comfort, especially since oil prices are still low compared to What it was in years ago.

DinarResearcher: The outcome of the Kuwait Conference did not satisfy the members of all official Iraqi delegations, especially in terms of grants and loans that the corrupt bureaucratic apparatus in the state can manipulate its fate and acquire a large share of it, and in some cases in some cases as indicated by the Arab minister in the mentioned chat.

Mostly credit facilities and direct investments from countries and donors. Refraining from extending the same hand by the countries and bodies participating in the conference reflects distrust of the Iraqi situation.

The problem is that the Iraqi state, a government and a parliament, did not work properly before the conference to enhance confidence in the future of Iraq, and to promote confidence only by creating an enabling environment for investment that will reassure donors, lenders and investors, states, companies and organizations. And the loss of their money and efforts.

DinarResearcher: The appropriate environment for investment in a country like Iraq, consists of political and security stability and a rigorous program to combat administrative and financial corruption and to impose the rule of law and to curtail any extraterritorial authority, such as militias, gangs and clans, as well as a concrete program for national reconciliation. These elements are clearly spoken by representatives of a number of Governments, organizations and companies participating in the Conference.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Louis Lauderian, for example, outlined the demands of investors saying that investors need "solid and solid financial guarantees in the judicial, environmental and labor fields." He added to it the national reconciliation that he said Iraq could achieve "can stand on its own feet."

Other international officials have explicitly expressed the need for the Iraqi state to work hard in terms of providing security for investments, fighting corruption and solving the problems existing between Baghdad and the Kurdistan region.

DinarResearcher: The statements made by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and other officials of the state bodies participating in the conference did not come as the representatives of countries and companies waited for. It has to be generous with grants and loans.

DinarResearcher: The government of Baghdad has pledged to fight administrative and financial corruption, but it has not taken the decisive and decisive measures to deter continuous corruption without interruption and to prosecute the corrupt leaders who are usually associated with the powerful parties and parties in power.

The corrupt ones have impunity, and the strangest thing is that the adults among them were rewarded with their reinstatement to their positions in the state. In the past six months,

there has been a serious crisis in the relations between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Administration, which resulted in a national hate speech involving government officials and members of the federal parliament.

DinarResearcher: It is clear that the Iraqi government needs a lot of work to gain confidence in it and in the investment environment in the country. This is not an easy task with a political system based on quotas, which impedes the work of the laws, the Constitution itself, and tolerates the forces formed outside the state, and pays to the front of the state administration and its institutions partisan or partisan people who lack or lack of competence, experience and knowledge, and therefore integrity, and can To block the investment process and even stop it by seeking to blackmail the investment companies,

 as has been common for the past 14 years, where the Iraqi state lost more than 300 billion dollars of oil revenues did not show any trace after being looted by the corrupt.

 If it were not for corruption, Iraq would never need a conference such as the Kuwait Conference and its grants and loans. The looted wealth is ten times the total amount in Kuwait, and about four times what Baghdad declares the need to rebuild Iraq!

DinarResearcher: About "Middle East"

DinarResearcher: http://www.almadapaper.net/ar/news/542317/%D8%A5%D8%B9%D9%85%D8%A7%D8%B1-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%82-%D8%A8%D9%84%D8%A7-%D9%81%D8%B3%D8%A7%D8%AF

Duke_77: The statements made by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and other officials of the state bodies participating in the conference did not come as the representatives of countries and companies waited for. It has to be generous with grants and loans. this sounds to me as if they expected Abadi to tell em something and he let them down... maybe a rate guarantee...

Samson:  Abadi adviser: Gulf countries intend to extinguish debts owed by Iraq

2018-02-19 at 20:42 (Baghdad time)

The economic adviser to the Prime Minister, the appearance of Mohammed Saleh, on Monday, Iraq is committed to the limits set for all countries on access to loans, while they revealed an intention by the Gulf countries to extinguish the debts owed by Iraq.

"Most of his debt goes back to the pre-1990 era, to the Iran-Iraq war, a debt that has not been confirmed because there is no documentation to prove it," Saleh told Mawazine News.

He disclosed that "the intention of the Gulf States to write off debts owed by Iraq for a final," pointing out that "the UAE years ago, decided to cancel the debt, but it is still verbally undocumented."

He expected the economic adviser, "to write off debts owed by Iraq after the Kuwait Conference so that it has the capacity to deal with loans," describing the talk about Iraq's acceptance of loans obtained at the Kuwait Conference as "contradictory because the World Bank is a sponsor of the conference, Iraq's inability to repay loans. "

"Iraq does not need the loans it gets at the conference, even if it has soft benefits," said Abdul Rahman al-Mashhadani, an economist at the Kuwait conference. "Iraq needs loans to buy production lines, Investments in factories to operate a workforce or loans that address the balance of payments imbalances. "

"Iraq has a license it obtained two years ago when they gave it a B + credit rating from the World Bank that qualifies for taking loans with its guarantee as well as the International Monetary Fund. It also has a pledge from Britain of 10 billion pounds, up to 14 billion dollars, What came out of the Kuwait Conference. "

He explained that "the purpose of the Kuwait conference is to obtain grants, but what we got is loans," revealing at the same time that "some investors are afraid even from tribal conflicts that threaten some projects."

Sources familiar with the Council of Prime Ministers have revealed earlier that Prime Minister Haider Abadi may "reject" loans granted to Iraq at the Kuwait Conference, noting that the World Bank has confirmed the inability of the country to bear more debt.

The Kuwait International Conference for the Reconstruction of Iraq was launched on Monday, February 12, 2018, and concluded on Wednesday (February 14th).

During the conference, Iraq received non-sovereign loans, financing and project guarantees amounting to $ 11.61 billion, through $ 1 billion Kuwait, 0.5 reconstruction exports from Saudi Arabia, $ 5,200 billion, $ 210 million, United Kingdom, $ 3.5 billion, and 1.2 billion US dollars), in addition to sovereign loans.   LINK

The task of fighting corruption , which announced by the Iraqi government after declaring victory on Daesh, to prosecute corruption capital and recover the looted money and to end the presence of centenarians in managerial positions over the previous governments and the current, the task seems difficult and will not accomplish easily, which was confirmed by Prime Minister Haider al - Abadi during a weekly conferences, Saying that fighting and eliminating corruption in the country is a major process that will not end within days.

Without the internationalization of the issue of corruption in Iraq, it would not be possible to resolve the issue and future generations will not be able to obtain their most basic rights according to MPs. Parliament officials called for the formation of an international coalition very similar to the one formed in 2000 But his tasks will be not to fight a staunch but to combat the scourge of corruption that has ravaged the state and looted its financial budgets over the past years.

The fight against corruption through the international community and the United Nations is not limited to retrieving the Iraqi money smuggled from it, but to restore the confidence of the whole world in the status and credibility of Iraq, where a member of the Committee on Economy and Investment in the House of Representatives Amer al-Fayez, the requirement of the World Bank to keep the funds of the donor conference held in Kuwait Under his supervision is expected, in view of Iraq's global diagnosis of high corruption index, which increases the concern of the world's countries to invest or trade or grant grants to this country.     LINK
