Sale of treasury transfers and central to control the levels of liquidity
3/13/2014 0:00 Baghdad, Mustafa al-Hashemi is a sale transfers the central bank and the treasury transfers from one of the procedures and means of monetary policy taken by the central bank to deal with the levels of liquidity on a temporary basis as they represent an investment risk-free and therefore play an active role in the secondary market.
In this regard, said economic expert, Dr. appearance of Mohammed Saleh told the (morning): The treasury transfers short-term expires at the end of the year which comes to finance the deficit of my time while the central bank bonds are long-term and will continue over the years. between Saleh, said that remittances Bank belongs to the Iraqi Central Bank and treasury transfers back to the Ministry of financial and sold at an auction held by the Central Bank for this purpose,
adding that the treasury transfers are handled internally (inside Iraq), which is a bond issued by the government, of between three months and full year, and these papers do not bear interest but are sold at a discount given on the nominal value and the government gives them cash benefit is relatively low compared to the prevailing interest rate on bank loans because of the severity of the liquidity stemming from these cases could be deducted before the date of maturity at commercial banks.

Frank26: UST........ CBI .......... Understand Your rate .......... Now give me a date.
jd435d: I never say much , but want to voice my opinion, I believe the past few day I have been spending my dinar profits in my mind at a rate of $3.71 which is from the bond info we have received. In real life I believe the bond rate of $3.71 is for the maturity rate at the end of the bond, which most bonds mature in 3 to 5 years. I believe we are still looking at a 1 to 1 RV Rate, what does everyone else thing, by the way delta happy birthday, we share the same day
Mike100: that bond rate cannot fluctuate if thats what they are being sold at then thats the rate!! Their is NO other way to look at it. Also id even go as far as somewhat agreeing with you if i hadnt had contacts of mine telling me that they were indeed seeing 3.71 on their bank screens as well. The info matches.
Frank26: Friend.......... For not saying much You said a lot ....... Well done.
May I be of some assistance:If the bonds were sold at 371 then that number can NOT be a maturity rate as well.Of course the key here is ..."IF".
I have shared my opinion on CCs .......... It has not changed.
Aloha to You and Yours ........
ricklibby » March 12th, 2014, .How do bonds work?
Without loans, most of us wouldn't be able to afford things like a car, a home or education. And, just as people borrow money to help them succeed, so do businesses. Businesses often need loans to fund operations, move into new markets, innovate and grow in general. But the amount they need often surpasses what a bank can provide. So another useful way for corporations to raise the necessary funds is to issue bonds to whoever wants to buy them.
But that's all a bond is -- a loan. When you buy a bond, you're lending money to the organization that issues it. The company, in return, promises to pay interest payments to you for the length of the loan. How much and how often you get paid interest depends on the terms of the bond. The interest rate, also called the coupon, is typically higher with long-term bonds. These interest payments are usually doled out semiannually, but they can also be sent out annually, quarterly or even monthly. When the bond reaches the date of maturity, the issuer repays the principle, or original amount of the loan.
For you, the lender, a bond is a kind of investment, like a stock. The difference is that stocks aren't loans. Rather, stocks represent partial ownership in a company, and the returns represent a share in profits. For that reason, stocks are riskier and more volatile -- they closely reflect the success of a company. Bonds, on the other hand, often have a fixed interest rate. Some bonds, however, are floating-rate bonds, meaning their interest rates adjust depending on market conditions.
Like stocks, bonds can be traded. When someone sells a bond at a price lower than the face value, it's said to be selling at a discount. If sold at a price higher than the face value, it's selling at a premium.
Now that we know the basics, let's take a look at the different types of bonds.
Types of Bonds
Businesses aren't the only entities that can issue bonds. Governments and municipalities sell them as well. Let's look at how these kinds of bonds differ.
Government Bonds: To fund programs, meet their payrolls and essentially pay their bills, governments issue bonds. Bonds from stable governments, such as the United States, are considered extremely safe investments. Bonds from developing countries, on the other hand, are more risky. The U.S. government issues its own bonds from the treasury and from several government agencies. Those maturing in less than one year are known as T-bills. Bonds that mature in one to 10 years are T-notes, and those that take more than 10 years to mature are treasury bonds. In some cases, you don't have to pay state or local income taxes on the interest they earn.
Municipal Bonds: Municipal bonds -- also called "munis" -- are issued by states, cities, counties and various districts to raise money to finance operations or to pay for projects. Munis finance things like hospitals, schools, power plants, streets, office buildings, airports, bridges and the like. Municipalities usually issue bonds when they need more money than they collect through taxes. The good thing about municipal bonds is that you don't have to pay federal income taxes on the interest they earn.
