The new BEAC (Bank of Central African States) rules introduced in June were intended to clean up the money block flooded with petrodollars, which, due to poor control, often end up in offshore bank accounts after a complete bypass of the local economy.submitted by Oinvest1 to u/Oinvest1 [link] [comments]
The rules include that all foreign currency transfers that exceed 1 million CFA francs ($1,680) must be subjected for approval by the bank and that all export proceeds above 5 million CFA ($8,400) will be repatriated within 150 days by local bank account.
According to entrepreneurs, the efforts of the BEAC to combat money laundering and replenishment of thin foreign exchange reserves lead to acute currency shortages and delays in operations through the currency union of six countries.
The central African CFA union includes the former French colonies of Chad, the Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Cameroon, and the Central African Republic. All but the last one are among the largest oil producers in sub-Saharan Africa, whose financial transactions are amongst the most non-transparent in the world.
The bank also ordered to close onshore accounts in foreign currency, some of which may be reopened with its consent, and banned the use of offshore accounts by companies existing in the region without prior permission.
Businesses have complained that they have been waiting for months to take hold of hard currency and cannot import materials or pay suppliers.
Major mining and oil companies have the most significant influence on lobbying for change.
Responding to complaints, the BEAC has extended the deadline for companies to comply by December 1, instead of the original September 1.
Oil companies refused to comment while negotiations were ongoing, as other multinationals did, such as telecommunications companies.
The IMF called on the central bank to increase its reserves in foreign currency, which is estimated at 2.7 months of import coverage at the end of last year, which is extremely low for a region with such an extensive amount of oil. The bank agreed to extend this period to five months by 2022, as IMF papers show, and the new rules are to force banks to keep their foreign currency in BEAC.
The IMF spokeswoman said that the revised rules did not introduce new foreign exchange controls or restrictions on capital flows. They are rather aimed at clarifying certain requirements. She also added that they are expected to help the region adhere to the “rules of anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism.”

The Central Bank of Nigeria has instructed banks to place a post-no-debit on the bank accounts of 38 companies.
The affected accounts belong to betting companies, bureau de change companies and some logistics companies, according to a report on Saturday.
The report stated that the companies were being accused of forex infractions, moving forex abroad without the required authorisation and "Economic sabotage."
In a September 4 memo signed by the Director of Banking Supervision, Bello Hassan, read, "You are hereby required to place the under listed accounts on post-no-debit with immediate effect and revert with the account names, numbers, currencies and balances of all accounts placed on PND.".
A post-no-debit means that all debit transactions, including ATMs and cheques, on the accounts have been blocked but money can be deposited into the accounts.
The apex bank said only the listed companies should be placed on PND adding that all related accounts be excluded.

And has now completed the full squeeze pattern forecast around 2800.
Formed as a squeeze should. Parabolic into zig-zag spike outs. In the spike outs is the time to build positions and then add into the retrace after a drop signal.
Also had a few false starts and spike outs, which I've explained are to be expected in the strategy.
Now we're looking for the start of the first big drop to signal the run to 10,000 on the Dow.
SPX now trades marginally above the 1.61 expansion.
We see this before highs. It signalled the top in Feb. https://www.reddit.com/use2020sbeacomments/fwo5ut/it_shouldnt_work_but_over_the_last_100_years_this/
We'll have one last try at this;
During the fall I’m only going to be able to continue to provide weekly and daily trade plans if people pay for it. The reason for this is, for it to be viable for me, I’m going to have to hire people to do the leg work in managing this. I won’t have time to do it all myself. I’m charging you to cover the costs I’ll incur to give it to you.
I’ll setup a discord server with;
There are some people here to call me a scammer. I’d suggest you do not send me the $50 if you’ve not already gotten at least $50 of value out of what I’ve shared. I’m going to keep on doing the same thing. Personally, I think i should b charging over 100* what I am, but I suppose value is very subjective.
I’ll accept payments for this only via Paypal (Much easier if I end up refunding). To join this;
1 - Send $50 to PayPal email: [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
2 - Send payment transaction number via email to the same email address.
Links to join will be sent to you. Please allow for some time, but should usually be within a few hours.
The purpose of the payments is to cover costs of me paying someone who've I trained to post alerts and answer questions in time I am not available. At this point not enough people joined to cover this. I'll give it until Monday. If enough people have not joined I'll close this offer. Run it for the people there until the end of the month and then mass refund everyone and close it fully. I don't have time to do it all.
A double top is possible tomorrow, but the market has now reached the full extension of where a bull trap / short squeeze should complete. I'm selling large positions 3110.
If the market is not falling within 4 trading days from now it will annul my bearish trade plan. It would trigger a system stop loss, which would mean I'm entirely finished with shorts on the market. This is the last point at which it should work, and if it doesn't work this time - it has not worked. I was wrong and this method can not be used in modern day crashes (Or I misread the setups).
I've published already a lot of detailed trade plans and strategy blueprints for how to do this. If the market starts to fall I will be almost entirely silent here in the coming weeks. I only have time to talk whist it's not happening. If it's not falling next week I'll explain the reasons I've stopped following the plan and what I learned from it not working (For those interested in such things).

Triangles are one of the price action concepts of the chart. Triangles can reveal us many things about the market scenario, momentum shifts and the balance between bulls and bears. Triangles are made by uniting two trend lines where one is resistance and another is a bullish or bearish line. Every trend line comprises two or more than two prices thus, upper and lower trend lines necessitate at least two or more points in price.There are three diverse types of triangles and which are explained below
In this triangle, the upper trend line is leaning downward, and the lower trend line is inclined upward at the same angle. The connection between these two trend lines is called “Apex” whereas the base is away from the first high point and first low point.
This pattern is bullish in an uptrend as it shows the high possibility of the continuation of the current uptrend. In reverse, this pattern indicates a high possibility of continuation of the downtrend too. The potential price fluctuation can be calculated by the tallness of the base. This is assumed that the breakout of symmetrical triangles usually happens in the direction of the trend. The probability of success is, therefore, greater when we think of symmetrical triangles as being a continuation pattern of forex prices or derivatives prices.
In this triangle, the upper trend line must be horizontal, and the lower trend line should be upward inclined. The horizontal upper trend line of such pattern specifies the resistance which is stopping the price from going further up but the upward slanting lower trend line voices us about the occurrence of an uptrend.
These kind of patterns are bullish and normally found in an up-trending market. It has an apex point and a base. The minimum price movement is equal to the height of the base from the breakout point same as similar triangle patterns.
In this triangle, the upper trend line should be downward tending and lower trend line must be horizontal. The horizontal lower trend line of such pattern stipulates a support line and this support line is preventing the price from going more down. However, the upward inclined lower trend line displays the manifestation of a downtrend.
These triangle patterns are bearish in nature and typically originate in a downward market. It also has an apex and a base point. The smallest price fluctuation is equal to the height of the base from the breakout point.Triangle breaks out patterns are very popular among most of the trader regardless of the forex, commodity or stock markets. Their best use may lead to winning the trade however their confirmation is required before placing the orders.

Pros of Trading Forex With an Overseas Account
The evolution of the internet has benefited traders with easy access to the options trading platform in any corner of the world. With the forces of globalization garnering pace, the forex markets also have benefited from the impending storm. While it is subjective to reason out whether the FOREX markets are suited for you or not, the core theme of this article is to ascertain the advantages of trading in the markets with an overseas account.Before deliberating on it, one may wonder why it is beneficial to open an overseas account given the numerous challenges associated with it. The advantages are provided below.
SPECIFIC INCENTIVES IN SOME REGIONSThe first reason to open an overseas account is due to the underlying incentives in some regions which may be unavailable in other regions. For example, in the USA, the federal agency associated with the securities market-Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), prohibits traders to hedge the positions from a similar account. Hedging implies opening two positions on the same currency pair but in two opposite directions. SEC opposes this feature with a simple logic that hedged positions embody a higher level of risk for the clients. Therefore, keeping the client's interests in mind, the facility of hedging is unavailable. However, on the other hand, there are numerous hedging trading strategies that are beneficial to the options trader which are often overlooked by the traders in the USA. To corroborate the example further, suppose you use technical analysis to determine the trading signals on different time-frames. Hence, while one may give a buy signal in a 5-minute chart, a 1-hour chart can provide a sell signal. Since time-frames are spread, it is inevitable that the same currency pair in two different time-frames can display buy and sell signals simultaneously. A trader based in the USA can miss out on these opportune moments. A smart trader may open two distinct accounts but this is time-consuming and wastage of resources. To overcome this glaring issue, a trader can open an overseas account and take advantage in other markets where hedging facility is allowed i.e. a broker not based in the USA but is regulated by an apex institution in that jurisdiction.
DENOMINATED IN DIFFERENT CURRENCYA trader trading in an overseas account has the opportunity to have the trading account denominated in a different currency. For instance, if your analysis proves that during the medium to long-term period, the Australian Dollar (AUD) is predicted to appreciate against the US Dollar (USD), then you should search for an AUD-denominated account. The way forward will be to look for a broker who would offer this facility and open an AUD-denominated account. Thereafter, along with generating profits upon the right prediction of the markets, you will also generate higher profits due to the appreciation of the corresponding currency pair i.e. AUDUSD. This strategy is widely used by traders who open an overseas account in different parts of the world. However, it is recommended to use this analysis only after careful scrutiny of the currency pair that the resident nation will observe.
OVERCOMING FIFO RULESIn most nations, traders have to respect the FIFO (First in First out) rule. This rule implies that the first position that was opened should be the first position to be closed on the same currency pair in currency options trading. While many may argue that it does not inflict a significant impact on the overall performance, it does, however, impact the psychological level of the trader. Settling a trade in an unfavorable territory to release some margins can be avoided by squaring a trade in positive territory opened at a later phase from a better level. However, if the account is following the laws of the FIFO system, this does not apply. While your jurisdiction may follow the FIFO system, other nations do follow the LIFO system whereby the last opened positions can be settled first to allow the initial opened positions to run their course.The above factors highlight the various virtues of options trading FOREX with an overseas account. Although these factors exemplify the reasons against trading in your domestic account, it is recommended to explore the offshore opportunities prudently before realizing the final decision.
Trading with the apex of a contracting triangle is a rewarding way to identify both reversals and continuation patterns in the Forex market. While some may look at the apex as not being that important, a correct analysis and interpretation of a contracting triangle can only be made by taking its apex into account. Futures and Forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment.
