FromBelgium: Hi. Can someone please explain why articles about “deleting zeros from the currency” should make us feel excited?
Seriously, they are not saying “delete zeros from the exchange rate”, are they? I read the articles, but can’t find anything that points in that direction. IMO
I want to be excited too, like many here seemingly. And I do see that there is more and more chatter about the currency. But the one thing we all want to read – we want to delete zeros from the EXCHANGE RATE – we never see… IMO
Waiting for the next articles about the nscn’s now. If they come out, we will know exactly what will happen! IMO Keeping faith
McDan: What You do not see the Program rate that was set in October the first 2003 was .00047 etc. now they want to delete the 3 zero and set the rate at .47 which is the SDR rate of Iraq .
To find the exchange rate the IMF has a value of today of 1.4247 round up to 1.43 . This rate can change 5 days of the week , because it is a weight weight to 5 country’s in a IMF basket. The exchange rate comes from this SDR rate which give a close 1/1 rate to the USD and the New Iraq Dinar. (In Country).
Outside of Iraq we are hoping to see the REER rate ( real effective exchange rate). The AMF will show a rate of 3 X The SDR of the IMF ( which will be the exchange rate for the Iraq Dinar outside of Iraq ) when the dinar is peg to different basket . IMO
