Popeye7: IMO, having the sense of urgency to pass the budget as they did this year is very significant... All of their ducks are in order.. Some may argue about Iraq not having their cabinet positions full, thus not fully secure, but we know that PM Mahdi is going to fill in for the time being in proxy mode... So with that being said, the ducks are in order, and we are in a fantastic position right now...

A non-bank foreign exchange company also known as foreign exchange broker or simply forex broker is a company that offers currency exchange and international payments to private individuals and companies. The term is typically used for currency exchange companies that offer physical delivery rather than speculative trading . i.e., there is a physical delivery of currency to a bank account.
Foreign exchange companies are normally distinct from money transfer companies or remittance companies and bureaux de change as they typically perform high-value transfers unlike their money transfer counterparts that focus on high-volume low-value transfers generally by economic migrants back to their home country or to provide cash for travelers. Transactions can be either spot transactions or forward transactions ."
