[michigander0131] I believe that this is part of the CBI's overall strategy to bring the street rate and the program rate back together again. If you were trying to buy dollars in Iraq, and the CBI through all 10 branches of Rasheed would sell them directly to you at 1166 per dollar, the program rate, why in the world would you buy from a street vendor for 1280 dinars per dollar the blackmarket/street rate? In addition the CBI is making it easy to buy from them by having the 10 Rasheed branches in Bagdad sell up to $5000.00 per week to any legitiment buyer who can show proper identification. This is the same thing Shabibi did before he was removed, but Shabibi did not make so this available and convenient to the average citizen. This really should help the two rates come back together in conjunction with the procedural changes at the CBI auction, and the purchasing banks. This is a real positive for our investment. IMHO
[michigander0131] The May 22 DFI release of funds is less than 2 months away. The CBI has been drawing in millions... no billions... actually trillions of dinar for over a year now. The existing Dinar is torn and tattered... and what is not is being hoarded by those who can afford it.. and the citizens do know that something is up with their currency. The auction numbers are shrinking weekly.. because there is less and less dinar to be drawn in. I submit that they are as near as they need to be now. In fact.. the longer it goes with the status quo... now that they budget is ratified.. they may well even have to start releasing some dinar back into the economy.. as expenditures.
