BGG ~ We will continue to highlight the regular auctions. This appears to be the most recent auction.


BGG ~  Let me boil my recent comments down to one simple idea.

It appears to me – Warka Bank is interested in the same thing the CBI is right now…
Which is, recapturing as much Dinar as possible.

Does this imply some immediate RV (or value change)?

No – it does not. In fact, it might even imply them thinking some value shift may be coming as far out as sometime in the next couple of fiscal quarters.

I get it that they’ve changed (ownership / management), they’re all different now and under the direct oversight of the CBI (which might even bother me a little more)…

BUT HOLY COW!! These guys are really something…

“Here’s a letter authorizing us to withdraw the money from your account”… (because it’s somehow – legally O.K.) …and put it in ours… “sign right here please… press hard – there are three copies”

However, the flip side of this is, what if…

They know (or can foresee) something is on the horizon? They bring in all this IQD (for essentially – FREE)… then the IQD value goes up.

They just sold millions upon millions of shares of a Bank that is essentially worthless for $1 per share (or more). Sounds like the greatest financial coup in history.

Would the value of the IQD going up make the bank more valuable?

No, it does not… but if Warka pulls this off they will be sitting on a GIGANTIC PILE OF MONEY.

Why else would they sell a share of their (albeit $h!tty) bank for FRACTIONS of a cent?? They would be GIVING IT AWAY…

Unless, of course, they foresee buying the incoming money at one price and selling it later at another.
