WatchBandit:  Anyone heard what current rate is in the Rial?

Sunstar:  Don’t Quote Me On This…I Believe The Current Rial Rate Is Above $3

MountainMole:  The last given Rial rate was 3.67 last week.  Its been strange that on bank screens it has been higher than dinar.

MountainMole:  The Rial has been showing rates on bank screens for sometime. Crazy to me but a lot of activity must be going on IMHO if the IQN RVs without Rial moving some up it will cause havoc

WatchBandit:  Is the rial a legitimate consideration based on political going on?

SusanaC:  believe it is a good sign IRial is on screens and moving :UP:… close to 50% of Iraq’s reserves is in VND and we should see the out the gate rate for VND go UP to, which supports higher high rates(contract as they say)
