October 30, 2014 51 countries declare banking secrecy ‘obsolete’, sign pact in Berlin Finance ministers from over 51 countries signed an agreement in a step closer to ending the dark financial underworld of tax-evasion and money-laundering. Another 30 countries pledged to join by 2018. The deal is called the Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement and will look to build a collective exchange of bank accounts, taxes, assets, and income held outside local tax jurisdictions. The two-day summit was organized by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. It was hosted by German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble and held in Berlin. "Banking secrecy, in its old form, is obsolete," German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said in an interview in Bild on Wednesday. The practice is "no longer appropriate at a time when people can transfer their money all over the world at the press of a button via the internet," said Schaeuble. Germany is a staunch opponent of Bank secrecy by geography. On its southern border lie historically secretive Austria and Switzerland, and on the western frontier is Luxembourg, also known for its tight-lipped financial institutions. Members like the Cayman Islands, the Virgin Islands and Liechtenstein – all notorious for being tax havens, signed the agreements. Asset hideouts like Austria, Switzerland, and the Bahamas didn’t sign the agreement itself, but promised to join the initiative by 2018. The new American anti-secrecy measure, FATCA, added a sense of urgency to the debate. FATCA legislation, signed into law in 2010 and enacted on July 1, 2014, requires overseas financial institutions to identify their American customers to the IRS. The law applies to any account with more than $50,000. source
October 30, 2014 Foreign jihadists flocking to Iraq and Syria on 'unprecedented scale' – UN UN report suggests decline of al-Qaida has yielded an explosion of jihadist enthusiasm for its even mightier successor organisations, chiefly Isis The United Nations has warned that foreign jihadists are swarming into the twin conflicts in Iraq and Syria on “an unprecedented scale” and from countries that had not previously contributed combatants to global terrorism. A report by the UN security council, obtained by the Guardian, finds that 15,000 people have travelled to Syria and Iraq to fight alongside the Islamic State (Isis) and similar extremist groups. They come from more than 80 countries, the report states, “including a tail of countries that have not previously faced challenges relating to al-Qaida”.

October 30, 2014 Two mass graves discovered in Iraq with over 200 bodies BAGHDAD: Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants executed at least 220 Iraqis in retaliation against a tribe's opposition to their takeover of territory west of Baghdad, security sources and witnesses said. Two mass graves were discovered on Thursday containing some of the 300 members of the Sunni Albu Nimr tribe that ISIS had seized this week. The captives, men aged between 18 and 55, had been shot at close range, witnesses said.
October 29, 2014 The Status and Speculated Future of the Iraqi Dinar As our listeners and readers know we have been waiting for action by the Central Bank of Iraq to make the Iraqi Dinar IMF Article 8 compliant. We anticipate that this action will consist of an announcement that the Central Bank of Iraq is dropping the current peg to the US dollar and adopting a currency basket comprised of 5 separate currencies. These 5 currencies will more than likely be the 4 existing currencies of the SDR basket plus the Chinese yuan which is slated to be the next addition to the SDR basket. When we see the announcement from the CBI about this we anticipate that there will also be an adjustment to the rate of the IQD which will be the result of the associated total of the backing basket percentage rates which collectively will equal the value of 1 Iraqi Dinar. What the basket currencies percentages will be is unknown but it could be as low as 1 IQD = .05 cents to as high as 1 IQD = .85 cents. To be safe one would be wise to expect the lowest possible return of .05 cents per 1 dinar and hope for the highest return of .80 cents per 1 dinar. We are still watching for the temporal marker of “the shot heard around the world” as an indicator of the timeframe of this announcement and associated rate change. So that is where we stand at this time…hope for the best and be ready! Phoenix
The Shot Heard Around the World. I have been asked by a few if the tragic shooting of the Rabbi in Jerusalem yesterday was the temporal marker event we have been watching for dubbed “The shot heard around the world”. The answer is….NO! The event we are watching for is very specific in nature and because the shooting of the Rabbi did not happen at the podium it is NOT the target event. We are looking for a marker that appears to be the assassination or attempted assassination of someone who is standing at a podium with an emblem on the front of the podium as the event takes place. There should also be a marker of a person with a rifle off to the side in a window or on a balcony. The tragic event we just witnessed in Israel happened on a sidewalk and therefore is not the target event we are watching for. Our prayers and condolences go out for the friends and family of the victim. Keeps your eyes open for “the event” and have a plan…and plan to act. Phoenix
