What markets are open on Martin Luther King Day?

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) - U.S. stock and bond markets will be closed on Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, but it will be business as usual for Globex electronic trading and in overseas markets.

Oil, gold and Treasurys futures contracts, among other contracts listed on Globex, will all trade electronically during the holiday.

The CME trading floors will be closed.

Globex trading will begin as usual at 6 p.m. Eastern on Sunday and end at 1 p.m. Eastern on Monday, but with a trade date of Tuesday. Trading will resume at 6 p.m. Eastern on Monday.

U.S. stock markets will be closed, and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association Sifma has recommended that there be no trading in U.S.-dollar-denominated bonds in the U.S., U.K. and Japan.

Currency trading is expected to be light during the North American day. Banks in Europe and Canada will be open.


Gold and Economic Freedom   by Alan Greenspan

Published in Ayn Rand's "Objectivist" newsletter in 1966, and reprinted in her book, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, in 1967.

An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense - perhaps more clearly and subtly than many consistent defenders of laissez-faire - that gold and economic freedom are inseparable, that the gold standard is an instrument of laissez-faire and that each implies and requires the other.

In order to understand the source of their antagonism, it is necessary first to understand the specific role of gold in a free society.

[tlm724] Keywords in an interview for a number of media that "the Bank maintains the largest rates of good reserves of hard currency in the world compared to the money supply,"



OilRat January 18, 2015 at 9:49am Listen up Friends.....everyone needs to stay "focused" (on what's important), "positive" (in the now), and "calm" (knowing it's about over)

From this point forward.....there is not and will not be a lot of direct top-PTB Intel until this is contacts are "Simply Staying Stealth" (SSS), and I expect it to stay this way until we are in the banks celebrating.

Even the info they are providing is either repeat info and/or blah, blah, blah Intel. Let it be known, this is absolutely why I believe we are as close as we have ever been yet.

Sunday News Summaries and Commentaries

Well it is Sunday, there is to be a meeting between PM Abadi and the CBI governor today...then off to London....inquiring minds want to know who he meets there and for what reasons....that may require some cooking I think though....meanwhile we see more news of corruption...and yes Maliki's name crops up again...but so does Dr. S's name....but not for the same reasons....seems they are working in opposite out of potential legal threats....and the other right into the snare of the legal system.....good for both I say.....oil and gas law, investment law, and of course some budget items.

State of Law: Visit by a delegation to America Anbar and Baghdad media closer than Washington

Millionday News 1/17/15  Part 2

Welcome to for news time with Millionday!


Millionday: This will require the United States, first, to expend significant political capital to convince the Iraqi government to take steps it finds extremely distasteful and,

 second, to continue to discourage the KRG from undertaking actions that could be perceived as provocative by other Iraqis. 

By the same token, the United States will have to tolerate al-Maliki's efforts to reconcile with members of Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr's movement, including "special group" militants who have American blood on their hands


Millionday News 1/17/15  Part 1

Welcome to for news time with Millionday!

Millionday: January announced the decision the House of Representatives, MP Imad Youkhana, Saturday, that the Presidency has decided to convene a special session to discuss the 2015 budget on Wednesday instead of next Tuesday.

Youkhana said in a press statement "reached from the Presidency of the Council of Representatives today to take a decision to extend the session next Tuesday to one day to give the parliamentary finance committee further discussions on the budget that the meeting be held next Wednesday."

He said the "extension is to give the Finance Committee more time to complete the discussion of the budget in order to be ready to agree to put on the agenda of the vote."



Ishman: ISX Open and New York Stock Exchange Holiday: Coincidence?

It appears Iraq is trying to open their ISX on Jan 18, and we've been advised the RI is expected to be released concurrent with the re-launching of the ISX.

And the NYSE has declared a holiday for Martin Luther King Day on Mon, Jan 19.

This is a lovely coincidence.  If I were releasing the RI, this weekend would seem about as perfect as the PTB could desire, especially in the wake of the de-coupling of the CHF from the EUR.**

ExchangeToday:  OK midnight tonight is a great time or 2-4 am tomorrow!!!


Matt McBride (@MattMhmmcbride) JANUARY 15, 2015 AT 9:59 PM  Hi JC,   Do you see a "controlled" derivatives explosion as the only way of clearing out the old to make way for the new SDR and SDR based derivatives?

I cannot fathom a way of unwinding the trillions in unstable USD based derivatives that does not cause some major pain for at least 2-3 TBTFs (Citigroup?)

JC Collins JANUARY 15, 2015 AT 10:15 PM   Like QE was a liquidity exchange, this could look something like a derivative exchange, with the contracts fragmented into high risk and low risk segments. The process could involve clearing the low risk and consolidating the high risk.


Aggiedad77: Timing...indeed timing....globe-trotting by PM Abadi at a time when the budget is due for a vote....Wednesday the 21st.....hmmmm....what could he be telling us....confidence in what is to come......or that the budget is a done deal...a no brainer.....(See Article Below)

I for one....not in any kind of minute believe that Abadi would be leaving home if he felt any concern with the budget....he has more integrity than that.....

I still believe a vote will happen on Wednesday....barring any other postponement of said vote.....interesting trail that is being created here for sure....worthy of watching what transpires.

And don't forget the meeting tomorrow between Abadi and the CBI governor.....what can they possibly be talking about on the eve of Abadi heading into London then to interest level is at an all time high.  Aloha   Randy

Tlar & CC Members Discussion On Budget / Rate / Stability & More Part 3 of 3

      DWIGHT, excellent counterpoint. My problem in banks is how can any bank in this scenario affect only the debt side of this equation? By the way both you and Mike have come to logical conclusions but I still feel that everything will go down by three zeros to parallel the currency (physical paper) to mirror image this change. You can't pick and choose. 

Property, bonds, stocks, assets, debt, and I believe every electronic account such as bank accounts, loans, living items and living expenses, everything must be changed, to reflect the new rate.

 Again we can't pick and choose. All value will remain the same once adjusted. Salaries and incomes such as retirements, interest both passive and active for government, private and individuals will also be adjusted. Everything. Again you can't pick and choose. Again its makes for an interesting debate. Tlar

Tlar & CC Members Discussion On Budget / Rate / Stability & More Part 2 of 3

 This is an old article (Sept. - 2012) that is classified as Rumor.  It is related to a Retired State Dept. Economist that supposedly worked on the original plan to install a new monetary system for Iraq.  

The discussion regarding "circulated currency vs non circulated currency" prompted me to post this article, although many of you have probably already seen it.    

  In our 40+ year career as a Retirement Consultant we have been blessed to meet some very talented professionals. One of them is a retired State Dept. economist who introduced us to the IQD investment in 2005. He had worked on the original plan to install a new monetary system for Iraq after the 2003 invasion.

 He had originally indicated that the plan was for the IQD to achieve financial parity with the USD over a 7-10 year period from the introduction of the new system.

 At that time the USDs use would be completely discontinued and it would be replaced by the IQD for in-country use and international exchange. The variable factor in the timetable would be the political environment.

Tlar & CC Members Discussion On Budget / Rate / Stability & More Part 1 of 3

  XXXX,  how much do you want to bet that when we see the budget that there still will be no RV?? I bet there is zero chance the RV is in the budget! Guru Lojak is gone and as you can see Tlar is back to analyzing and research and learned his lesson, they were questioned heavily about their Intel that was never correct and decided to disappear instead of man up per say!

 So no the one liners will not fly unless you are ready to back them up IMO. No one knows the date or rate on any forum period!!! The CBI will not and cannot RV this currency without the GOI being on board and that is WHY we have not seen the RV yet not because of the budget that every guru out their calls for every year sorry to be the bearer of bad news! 

Yes we do have some major banking and investment laws to be completed etc, and yes when the time is right most of these will be completed very quickly or in the basket as discussed. Until that time is right we All wait patiently IMO.
