I'm taking business classes in college.(finishing a degree I started 15 years ago)

I can tell you something about currency futures. Sure the New Iraqi Dinar(NID) is cheap right now. Very likely it will increase in value. Not to pre Gulf I levels though. That exchange rate was set by Saddam Hussein, not the open currency market.(rate was $3.22USD to 1 Iraqi Dinar) The laws of supply and demand are at work here. Currently, there is NO demand worldwide for the NID. None! Iraq's situation is so precarious and unstable that even the gamblers on the FOREX won't touch the NID with a long stick. I'm doing a paper on this issue, and when it's done I will post it if you all are interested.

I saw the NID were sold worldwide and the buyer keep on buying nonstop.....isn't that considered a demand? Please advice.......your professional view is very much appreciated! :ninja:

There is a demand for NID, however insignificant, from people who just think they would look good in their collection. There seems to be no demand for them in terms of investment and potential profit.

As far as demand for NID goes there is none on the FOREX. As Jerat Jr. points out, you indeed see billions of NID on ebay, betoniraq, et. al. The reason is there are trillions in circulation now. What you see is only a very small percentage of the total number of NID in existance. Now the NID trades at roughly 1500 to 1 USD. So a few dollars turns into a ton of NID. There is potential for growth with the NID. However, until there is a stable infrastructure, regulated commerce and a central government that can survive, the NID is a huge risk at best. I don't know the total of NID in circulation now, but I would bet it is HUGE. Here in the good ol' US of A we have roughly $600 billion in country, with investments from overseas interests that total comes close to $1 trillion. At 1500 to 1 you can estimate that there could potentially be 5-600 trillion NID total. A few billion from a total of that size is barely a drop in the bucket. Plus any overthrow of the current Iraqi government would likely mean a new currency in Iraq rendering the existing NID worthless.
