Frank26  [Iraq boots-on-the-ground report]  FIREFLY: TV saying in news that the decision to raise interest rate in Iraq will increase the banking sector.  FRANK:  The only reason they’re talking about raising the interest rate is because your exchange rate is about to go up in value…

Mnt Goat …we have learned that the global system for the automation and modernization of customs (ACYCUDA) project is making headway. This system will require a link to the international currency exchange to convert rates of currencies between countries for up-to-the-minute rates. The system is planned to take in any international currency not just the US dollar for payments of customs duties and tariffs. With this is a huge plan to make Iraq a central hub for commerce in the middle east and this revenue, as they told us, could rival the oil revenue. This new ACYCUDA system is due to come online when?  …does January 2024 sound familiar?…Just be patient, the reinstatement is coming.

Now, industry experts are saying this is only the beginning. Today, we have troubling news from two giants as well. Chase Bank and Bank Of America are going through difficult times, and this cloud seems void of a silver lining.
