Iko ward: So, all the markets are down this morning including ISX and the Arabs. Forex took a few extra minutes to poll out at 1110.7. Something's up.
NetGlobal: So anybody, is the Forex a precursor to what is about to happen with the RV or is it a reflection of what has already happened?
Iko Ward: Netglobal, it is both for now. Once we RV, it will report what is up at the CBI and show what is up with the world markets. Makes perfect sense, huh?
Net Global: IKO, so the Forex can predict the RV?
Iko Ward: Forex can be a strong indication of a pending attempt. Whenever it has got down to 1105 they have tried it. I'm being told if we ever see it below 1085 they have done it.
EF: These negative openings with DOW futures cries a lack of confidence in the market ! The Fed has no answer other than to keep interest rates unchanged and yet we still see volatility and instability across the board! No one can deny something strange is going on!! Rest assured, we are in the final days! :)
GSWoo13: Martha seemed to have STRONG feelings about 9/22 if I remember correctly.... GO MARTHA!
Robert001: This is major sign that the RV is happening. For the first time ever this IraqCentral Bank site that has posted ALL dinar auctions is BLANK. This happened late last nite http://www.changedetection.com/log/iq/cbi/index3_log.html
Dansmore: IMO the most important one is the national guard law.... they are working on it but that is the one we are waiting for
Daz: DANSMORE..LET ME PROPOSE THAT THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE PASSAGE OF THAT LAW IS BEING TIMELY WITHHELD UNTIL THEY RELEASE THE RV. THAT WAY..EVERYONE IS RIGHT
THESE ARE EVENTS IMO OPINION ARE USED AS TOOLS. WE UNDERSTAND THE END GOAL///THE JOURNEY THERE IS THE MYSTERY. AS THINGS EXPAND AND ALSO LOSE TRACTION....A SERIES OF ANNOUNCEMENTS COULD BE USED TO "MEASURE" THE RELEASE
LOOKING BACK OVER THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS I THINK I RECOGNIZE A TREND THAT MAY SUPPORT THAT

Firefly Quote: "Representing the UN at the meeting, UNDP’s Resident Representative Ms. Lise Grande congratulated the Government of Iraq... highlighting “the importance of Iraq’s contribution in order to reach a globally binding agreement.”
Sure doesn't sound like gloom and doom to me. Coming direct from the UN site!
Backdoc: UNFORTUNATELY, THE LOWER OIL PRICES GO, THE MORE DEFLATION WORKS ITS WAY AROUND THE GLOBE THE GREATER THE PRESSURE COUNTRIES HAVE WITH THEIR CURRENCIES!
THIS DEFLATION PROBLEM ONLY MAGNIFIES THE DEBT PROBLEM WORLD WIDE UNTIL IT IS UNSUSTAINABLE! THE BEGINNING OF THE END HAS CERTAINLY BEGUN. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE IS ANYONES GUESS!
BE CONFIDENT THAT WE WILL BE BLESSED WHEN THE HURRICANE PASSES! DOC IMO
ThunderHawk :Chinese Slowdown Ripples Around the World With Currency Wars
China's slowdown and recent currency wars could mean that the global economic depression could last for a long time, financial expert and author Jim Rickards said.
The ongoing currency wars, which began with the 2010 devaluation of the US dollar, could last for a long time, as the World continues to face a global depression, financial expert and author Jim Rickards told Radio Sputnik.
China's exports declined in 2015 and its stock market collapsed more than 25 percent. The consequences of this could be dramatic for the global market, according to Rickards.
"If you reduce Chinese growth by even 30 percent, that's 3 percent of global GDP. Global GDP is only growing at about three percent, so you could take global growth almost to zero," Rickards said.
According to Rickards, the US Federal Reserve's tightening policy is behind the Chinese currency decline, making other currencies weaker against the dollar.
Rickards added that it is not surprising that the Fed did not raise rates because of this, as the currency market is tight as it is.
Thunderhawk: Catalan Elections Causing Eurozone Cracks
A vote on the potential break-up of one of Europe's oldest countries is to take place on Sunday 27 September, when Catalonia holds its regional elections. Nationalist leaders are pledging to set up an independent Catalan state within 18 months if they win a majority in Barcelona's parliament.
Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, leader of the conservative People's party insisted that: "There will be no Catalan independence. We are talking about regional elections, in which people will choose their regional parliament. Nothing else."
But the separatists have a different idea. If, as polls suggest, pro-independence parties win a majority in the 135 seat regional parliament, Catalan regional president Artur Mas, has said he will lead a transitional government which could see the region setting up their own banking service and tax authority within 18 months.
The Price of Independence
Meanwhile, the governor of the Bank of Spain, Luis Maria Linde, has issued a warning that an independent Catalonia would leave people without access to their bank savings — and an automatic ejection from the Eurozone and access to money from the European Central Bank.
"The exit from the euro is automatic, the exit from the European Union is implied," Luis Maria Linde said.
The independent region would no longer be subject to EU treaties — but could re-apply for membership. Meanwhile, Madrid's ruling conservatives, backed by Spain's constitutional court, insist Catalonia is not a nation and said it will block any EU accession application.
And now Scotland is wading into the debate. Scottish National Party European spokesman, Alyn Smith, has warned Madrid that blocking a referendum was "anti-democratic, anti-European and potentially explosive."
"Catalonia is a nation, and has a right to choose."
But Spain, Germany the UK and US want the country to remain united. However, fault lines in the Eurozone are spreading with the potential for a 'Catalexit' on the cards.
