4th October, 2021

About 80 dollars is what the price of a barrel of oil has become, which opened the door to questions about the fate of the surplus funds, which amounted to billions of dollars outside the budget accounts, which were approved at a price of forty-five dollars per barrel.

Economists indicated that this money will open new doors for corruption by categorizing it in new ways through which it closes the loopholes that are raised against it, which prompted them to demand the regulatory and integrity authorities to investigate these funds until they are added to a new draft in the budget and voted on by the next parliament.

European Union: Afghanistan on the brink of social and economic collapse

4th October, 2021

The European Union Commissioner for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, said that Afghanistan is facing an economic and social collapse that threatens to turn the situation in it into a humanitarian catastrophe.

In a blog post, Borrell wrote: “To avoid the worst-case scenario, the Taliban must abide by the conditions that enable the country to receive more international aid.” He added, “Afghanistan is going through a serious humanitarian crisis, and a looming socio-economic collapse will be dangerous for Afghans, the region and international security.”

Borrell added that “the Afghan banking system has been largely paralyzed, which has prevented depositors and their money, while the health system is highly dependent on foreign aid.” And he added, “If this situation continues with the approach of winter, this portends that the situation will turn into a humanitarian catastrophe.”

Borrell said that “the European Union’s response to the crisis will depend on the behavior of the new Afghan authorities, and any resumption of relations will require compliance with conditions, including with regard to human rights.”

The European Union, which includes 27 member states, has increased its humanitarian aid to Afghanistan since the Taliban seized power, but it suspended development aid, in a move shared by other countries and the World Bank.

Borrell had met last week with Qatari officials in Doha, where there are representatives of the “Taliban”. He said that Qatar’s contacts with the “Taliban” are aimed at mitigating the movement’s actions, and Borrell urged Doha to use its contacts with it to ensure avoiding the “worst case scenario” in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan has witnessed a rise in food prices by more than 50 percent since the “Taliban” movement seized power in August, and inflation has risen due to the freezing of the Afghan Central Bank’s balances deposited abroad amounting to nine billion dollars, in addition to stopping the withdrawal of foreign funds.  LINK

Iraqi banks acquire 99% of government bonds

4th October, 2021

On Monday, a government source said that most of the bonds offered by the government are bought by banks through their cash reserves with the Central Bank of Iraq, while citizens are satisfied with only one percent of those bonds

From time to time, the Central Bank issues bonds in favor of the Ministry of Finance, for the purpose of financing some public expenditures, as it recently issued construction bonds in denominations of 500 thousand dinars and one million dinars

The source said, “The banks use the compulsory cash reserve at the bank, which ranges between 35-40% of its capital of 250 billion dinars, for the purpose of purchasing the bonds offered by the government through the central bank

The source added, “99% of these bonds are bought by banks and one percent is bought by the citizen,” noting that “buying bonds by banks achieves great profits for them through the high interest offered, and the amounts that banks buy for these bonds are frozen with the bank as a reserve. You will drive it by buying these bonds

The source noted, “The government issues bonds from time to time due to its lack of financial liquidity to finance public expenditures,” noting that “the government owes the Central Bank more than 21 trillion dinars as a result of borrowing funds during the last period to cover employee salaries and other expenses    LINK

Federal Reserve Board announces the individual capital requirements for all large banks, effective on October 1

For release at 4:30 p.m. EDT

Following its stress test earlier this year, the Federal Reserve Board on Thursday announced the individual capital requirements for all large banks, effective on October 1. Those capital requirements ensure that the large banks tested will hold roughly $1 trillion in high-quality capital—enough to survive a severe recession and still be able to lend to households and businesses.

Large bank capital requirements are in part determined by the Board’s stress test results, which provide a risk-sensitive and forward-looking assessment of capital needs. The below table shows the total common equity tier 1, or CET1, capital requirements for each bank, which is made up of several components, including:

Minimum capital requirement, which is the same for each firm and is 4.5 percent;

The stress capital buffer, or SCB, requirement, which is determined from the stress test results, and is at least 2.5 percent; and

If applicable, a capital surcharge for global systemically important banks, or G-SIBs, which is at least 1.0 percent.

The Board also affirmed the stress test results for one bank that requested reconsideration, HSBC North America Holdings Inc. The reconsideration process involved an independent group—separate from the stress testing group—that analyzed and evaluated the results. While affirming HSBC’s stress test results for this cycle, the Board also directed the staff to conduct a closer examination of issues raised in the reconsideration process to inform continuing improvements in its stress testing methodology for next year’s stress tests.

From the looks of these Bonds at 250 billion dinars has a striking similarity to the UST requirement for banks to have quality assets. Imagine if this is similar and timed accordingly.

If an international calculation is applied to a new exchange rate like that of the AMFs recent valuations of approximately 3xSDR… One would see just how striking that maybe..

IMO. There are no coincidences imo… ~ MM
