Ok, someone went and did it.....asked to keep the momentum going....I'm assuming they meant the "good" movement that we saw throughout the day today.
I think it is impressive that we have O's administration, and O himself pushing Maliki to in essence "git-er-done" regarding the fighting in Anbar...but more importantly regarding the HCL.....imo.....they are pushing M to come to an agreement with the Kurds...and probably acquiesce to most if not all of the Kurds desires and wants. Time will tell how this evolves....worth watching what happens....hopefully for all our benefit.
Of course we have the lack of information on the CBI website that has stirred a great deal of interest today.....what is up with that.....could they simply be performing maintenance......or possibly gearing up for doing business in the future in a different manner than we have seen in the last 9 or 10 years.....I'm remaining realistically optimistic on this one....all eyes are on the CBI website I know....keep up the vigil....let's be the first to catch what they do.

From the news articles over the last 24-48 hours it seems reasonably certain that Parliament will get the budget next week....at least one article today said it would be "good to go" except maybe for issues with the Kurds.....this plays into the first item above...and just how important the push from Washington is in lighting a fire under M to get things done....imo....I think it is likely we will see a passed budget by the end of the month.
And don't forget somewhere on the back burner we have the BIS talking to the CBI, bring us your deposits, yes indeed we are interested.
Suffice it to say that things are shaping up such that this new week could be very interesting, and January itself could be impressive...for many people.
Bandit: As exciting as it is seeing the CBI site having NO rates posted............ I have to wonder......... would they really telegraph to the world that a change is coming? :hmmm:
Why not make it look like business as usual and leave up the program rate? :huh?:
I thought the rate would just change in the still of the night.... like a thief in the night without warning. :jawdrop1:
This is a BiG heads up....... IF........... we see a New rate this week.
[cshiner] So can someone please help me I am so confused. Now it is back in Iraq hands so why did we have to quit talking about it sharing anything and now we are back in Iraq I am so confused.
[bigjohn&sugarbear] That's what this ride is always been about confusing
[Moonchild] cshiner my understanding about how revaluations work is that a country requests it of the IMF and has to wait fo the IMF's blessing in order to make an RV international although they can do an incountry RV at their own discretion.
[Moonchild] Iraq should now be at the point where they are just waiting for the IMF to tell them to go ahead.
[sandytob] cshiner not in Iraq's hands. When all is done in the rest of the world, they will make it look like Iraq has the initial start.....it is all a show.
[Moonchild] cshiner probably the PTB dictating to the US and from there to the IMF. That is my best guess.
[forestrain] Who, what, why, where, when, we don't know, probably will never know, let's just hope somebody sends out the 800 numbers and we can go to the bank. Just saying
[Plowboy] good evening MIG. I just got home and checked the cbi.iq website and sure nuff, there are no values for currencies. It wonders me what it could mean.
[Plowboy] I have been researching for years and so have many that are here --- never have i seen no rates listed -- yes i have seen blank spaces etc -- but 6:44 PM we also have some other changes going along with this so as you see there is nothing there but we know that it was said years ago that is going to be the new site and of course they have the plans for the buildings etc but what we see is not something that anyone has seen before ---- 6:46 PM Robinredhed 6:47 PM they added the sdr and made an announcement about the addition of Iraq to the sdr -- (basket of currency) and
[Plowboy] years ago we saw this site >>>>>>>>>>>> http://www.cb-iraq.org/
[Plowboy] so we do know all of these things by the research we have been reporting but the total loss of the rates from CBI and the statement of the banks to account holders that there is no cash with huge pictures on front page news showing stacks of dinar -- we know that this is very confusing for them and us to speculate --- i would say they are making some change ---- does this mean we are there ? we dont have that in ink and I like to stay away from the roller coaster , but, how can one look at that and not have hope? i dont know because i cant wait to see what happens -- they are being very secretive about it and have given no explanation
[Plowboy] right now we are staring at CBI to see what is going to be put in the enpty spots or for a report or press conference to announce what is happening with it
[sparkles] yea wonder what is really going on there
hub] dont know how everyone feels about this, but a blast from tony at 10:30 this morning said it was told to all at the mosque this morning and we should hear about it in the next 2 hours to the next 2 days, when every the iraqis decide to release it,,,,,,take with a pinch of pepper, we shall see...kinda fits will all the other info.....
[perky2] hub hub well I am sure he knows
[Plowboy] millionday gave us this new website: http://www.cb-iraq.org/ but it appears to only be a cover page for now.
[sparkles] Here something else for you from coments in Recaps
[sparkles] I have watched Iraqi TV tonight and on their news I saw streets crowded with thousands of people celebrating with fireworks and waving flags. A reporter was walking around doing interviews with lots of people in the streets. I have never seen so many happy people on Iraqi TV . They seemed so very relieved and content. I cannot understand the language but they must be celebrating something very important. And the CBI website is still blank of any currency rates.
