[via PDK]   A lot of news coming out of Iraq this weekend.   A lot of it about Iraq’s economic prowess. They are now ranked the 7th central bank in buying metals. Think about that. They are not in the G7 or the G20…but they are the 7th largest purchaser of gold bullion. This is amazing. They also point out that their oil revenues are now surpassing Saudi Arabia in exports to the US. There are a number of articles pointing out how financially secure is Iraq. To me this is a precursor to a change of value in their currency.
