Iko Ward: Bank Story just now 11.07.15 1:45 PM EST

Hi everyone. Just an update. Visited exchange desk greater Philly area same person I always speak with. Front screens now show a PLEASE CALL CENTRAL DESK FOR CURRENT RATE (phone number) for the Dong.

Last time I checked there was nothing on front screens but access to back screen if you knew a few tricks. Same tricks today showed TYP rate of $44 per million.

Called central desk and got voice-mail. No Dinar showing. Rupiah still the old rate.

This tells me it’s being handled by internal controls. That’s a good thing.

BringitonTony: Who are the internal controls and why is that a good thing? Thanks IKO

Siesta:  Showing movement – also maybe “countries are connected” in the process

Iko Ward: .TYP is short for typical. “Internal Controls” means it is not on automated status. Still requires human intervention to function.


Maddison just call the WF bank to get me some more dong and they said we obviously not selling or buying them anymore…because they are no longer on our screen.

I have been purchasing from them for over a year

The teller came back and said we try to get the screen to come up two ways and it didn’t. she gave me the 800#


Quatermass:  Eid is a holy day tied to the holy month of ramadhan -next Eid is march and april 2016. I think that Tony was referring to another holiday that is due

OKRocks:  EID can be their established holiday and it can ALSO mean any holiday they designate… EID means holiday/festival … we do not know what holiday they have planned


elmerf123456 :  Full reforms whistle ready to blow any minute by Abadi. He has full support from the religious leaders that count. That is a big necessary move and with the world, “we are now ready and open for business” Words from a true leader across the pond.

elmerf123456 :   [email protected]: PM Abadi met Moqtada Al-Sadr in Najaf ahead of new set of reform decisions to be announced by Abadi, acc to sources Rolling !!!

elmerf123456 :  I do. I believe the dates and processes are all complete and this will happen shortly. China is very patient but not too much. Things are somewhat quiet… which is a very good sign!

Luvwolfs:  elmer I did read where Sistani made a speech yesterday telling folks not to block reforms. I hope that is the push that was needed

Elmerf123456:  Both Sistani and Sadr behind Abadi. That’s a BIG Support team.


RedIndian:  Kuwait wants to trade with Iraq…good sign!!!!

THink real hard about it….(what is the USD/KWD) rate???? Kuwait wants oil imports from Iraq, so……a good trade would also require….a good trade rate and/or the ability to do business with (an international exchange rate).

Then you won’t hear anymore of these bankers saying “Oh , that’s not publicly traded.” Shazam!!! SGt. Carter!!!!

First guy says, “My wife’s an angel!” Second guy remarks, “You’re lucky, mine’s still alive.”
Just think, if it weren’t for marriage, men would go through life thinking they had no faults at all.

If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say – talk in your sleep.

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.

Then there was a woman who said, ”I never knew what real happiness was until I got married, and by then, it was too late.”

A young son asked, ”Is it true Dad, that in some parts of Africa a man doesn’t know his wife until he marries her?” Dad replied, “That happens in every country, son.”

A little boy asked his father, ”Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?” Father replied, “I don’t know son, I’m still paying.”

A lady inserted an ad in the classifieds: ”Husband Wanted”. Next day she received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: ”You can have mine.”

When a woman steals your husband, there is no better revenge than to let her keep him.
