JJimmyJJ: This isn't proposing to be a summary, it is only my opinion of what I heard tonight from Frank and Walkingstick (thanks guys!), so take it for what it's worth. If the mods want to delete this because it isn't official, I won't be offended. But, here is what I think I heard tonight about what the next parts of the plan are for the Iraqi dinar:
1) Planning is done.
They are done with the plan to announce 1:1 in country. The announcement of the NSCNs (lower denoms) is part of that. No date for when they'll announce it all, but it SHOULD be soon--not months. More likely days or weeks.
2) Benchmarks for 3-zero note recovery.
After the announcement of the 1:1 rate change and the NSCNs, they are going to be monitoring the rate of recovery of the 3 zero notes. In other words, they have a target for how many "mattress dinars" are turned into the banking system. Once they recover a certain number count AND a certain monetary amount back into the CBI, this (along with other, unknown benchmarks) will trip another change of the rate inside Iraq (increasing the rate again). No timeframe, but perhaps weeks or months.
3) 3-Zero note exchange deadline
There will also be a timeline given for when the 3 zero notes must be turned into the CBI (inside Iraq, not outside Iraq). If you are within Iraq and miss that deadline, your notes will be worthless. Once that deadline is passed, they will raise the rate inside Iraq again. Perhaps to around $4.25 to 1 dinar. No timeline on when this will happen.
Once #1 above happens, the demand within the international market will force the exchange rate for the Iraqi dinar outside Iraq to begin to rise.
Thanks again to Frank for his conference call tonight, and to WS and the other team members for bringing this to us. My apologies for what I missed and/or misunderstood.
Oh, and to quote Frank, all this is IMO
Clare: NICE SUMMARY HOWEVER...I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT A CORRECTION.... FRANK SAID THE $4.25 WAS THE CAP INTERNATIONALLY IN HIS OPINON...
AFTER THE 1-1 AT THE ONSET, THERE WILL BE ANOTHER RATE INCREASE INSIDE OF IRAQ. FRANK SAID THE RATE & TIMEFRAME WAS UNKNOWN OF THAT 2ND INCREASE.... imo
Monday Night KTFA CC: 3-8-21......IMO.....123......THIS IS IT
TUESDAY -FROM FRANK....TONIGHT!!! YOUTUBE WITH FRANK @ 7PM EST....
AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!!!....WALKINGSTICK WILL JOIN FRANK VIA EARBUD ON THE PHONE
