-NOTES-
Exceptional volatility recorded in money markets today as the President, the Finance Minister, and the Governor of the Central Bank of Lebanon met, discussed, and agreed on extraordinary (hitherto unpublished) measures that will most likely see a spike in the price of fuel (petrol for cars, diesel for generators and heavy vehicles) in the coming weeks. Lebanon currently serves the cheapest fuel in the world, with 95 Octane petrol at under 0.66 US Dollars a gallon, or just over 0.15 US Dollars a liter.

-NOTES-
A Positive Sentiment is spreading; it is anticipated to last at least until September 2021. Final pricing for subsidized fuel released, recording a >40% increase, and easing the supply/demand shortages witnessed over the last few weeks. Banks are back in the black, and have started sending SMS notifications to clients regarding Banque du Liban Circular 158, paving the way for an increase in foreign currency notes in circulation. Lebanon has achieved Covid-19 Herd Immunity, with 7-day Covid-19 cases stabilizing at ~100/d, with less than 100 hospitalized and less than 50 ICU in total. 20% of Lebanon's population has been vaccinated, with another 40-50% recovered from Covid-19. The number of daily arrivals at Beirut International Airport has doubled in the last month, from ~4,000 to ~8,000; every incoming traveler carries a few thousand foreign currency bank notes. Two floating power plants have been reactivated, easing the rolling blackouts. Parliament approved Ration Cards for the least privileged citizens - facilitating the wellbeing and livelihoods of over 500,000 Lebanese residing in Lebanon. The IMF announced it will be injecting ~900 Million US Dollars into the Central Bank of Lebanon in September 2021. Local, regional, and foreign players have started implicit preparations for the 2022 Lebanon Parliamentary Elections. Small business owners have seen activity returning to pre-pandemic levels, which is encouraging a sizeable increase in growth investment.

-NOTES-
Bank ATMs across Lebanon have started disbursing US Dollar bank notes (cash) via Banque du Liban Circular 158 (bank accounts with US Dollar deposits prior to October 2019) for the first time since March 2020. This has started reducing demand for US Dollar bank notes in the Black Market, setting the stage for the appreciation of the Lebanese Lira.

‼️WARNING
ERM detected. Websites, Apps, and groups previously involved in exchange rate manipulation are attempting a Pump&Dump (PAD) action before a major Lebanese Lira adjustment. Extreme MMI volatility expected. Proceed with caution.
‼️WARNING
Continued Exchange Rate Manipulation (ERM) detected. Extreme Money Market Indicator (MMI) volatility expected. Proceed with caution.
‼️PUBLIC NOTICE
Yesterday's resignation statements from the office of Saad Hariri, the breakthrough event previously noted by LebaneseLira.org on June 9, 2021 (https://t.me/LebaneseLira/2674), explains the ERM and volatility of the past few weeks. Extreme volatility is anticipated in the short term until the breakthrough-dust settles. Last known rates were on July 6, 2021 (https://t.me/LebaneseLira/2700). Proceed with caution.
‼️COORDINATED DISINFORMATION
On Friday July 9, 2021, major mainstream media outlets in Lebanon reported that the Central Bank of Lebanon (Banque du Liban) had revised the value of the Lebanese Lira on Sayrafa 2.0 to 15,200. This was published at a time when Sayrafa 2.0 was suspended, and the last known value was 12,000. On Monday morning, July 12, 2021, LebaneseLira.org contacted major banks in Lebanon to confirm that Sayrafa 2.0 was trading at 15,200; they all reported back on July 13, 2021 that Sayrafa 2.0 was not operational the week of July 5, 2021, and that no revisions to 12,000 were made on any systems, or via any official / unofficial channels. This coordinated disinformation campaign that leveraged the credibility of mainstream media outlets to push a negative sentiment narrative at a time of positive economic and financial developments appears to be directed at justifying the exchange rate manipulation LebaneseLira.org has been warning of the last couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, June's fuel shortage appears to have been resolved as gas station lines have disappeared, while electricity services (government and private generators) are improving albeit slowly.
Whereas traders have been pricing in cash US Dollars since late 2019, the services sector is finally catching up with some independent contractors and professionals now executing the majority of their transactions in cash US Dollars. This rapid dollarization of Lebanon's economy is easing the strain on the Lebanese Lira.
Accordingly, as financial and economic data appears to be completely out of sync with black market data, and in light of the aforementioned coordinated disinformation campaign, LebaneseLira.org advises extreme caution. The last known MMIs were published on July 6, 2021 [https://t.me/LebaneseLira/2700].
‼️WARNING
Last week's unprecedented Exchange Rate Manipulation (ERM) persists. Extreme Money Market Indicator (MMI) volatility expected. Proceed with caution.
WARNING
Official resignation of Saad Hariri has spurred extreme Pump & Dump (PAD) activity, driving fake Money Market Indicator (MMI) movements of over 1,000 points in seconds. Critical ERM at play. Proceed with extreme caution until further notice.
WARNING
Malicious Websites, Apps, and Groups that have been driving Exchange Rate Manipulation over the last year are pushing scam MMI movements of near 2,000 points (10% one way) today before markets open. The key players in this ERM & PAD scam are #####rate & Ade######### websites and apps, alongside "Buy & Sell", "Finance/Banking", and "Bitcoin" Telegram Groups. All are using fear tactics to make a profit at the expense of the average Lebanese. Proceed with extreme caution until further notice.
