Turkish lira tumbles to record low as Erdogan backs lower rates

USD/TRY has seen huge volatility over the course of the week, with the pair rising into a fresh record high thanks to the continued influence of President Erdogan.

The country’s leader has been struggling to get the economy on track as rocketing inflation hurts his popularity. However, Erdogan has long failed to put the lira on a more stable footing, with central intervention in monetary policy concerns often seeing questionable decisions over the years.

The Reuters image below highlights the raft of questionable decisions taken to the detriment of the lira.

This week saw Erdogan state that he plans to stand by the policy of lowering rates with a view to stimulating economic growth.

Unfortunately such moves also devalue the lira, thus importing inflation. With Turkish inflation currently around 20%, the economic outlook is significantly constrained by the depreciating value of income in the country.

Below we can see how the USD/TRY pair has moved upward as inflation similarly increases over time. With the lira falling and global prices on the rise, there is likely to be further upside for prices and the USD/TRY.



Today has seen a sharp reversal of yesterday’s gains, in part reflecting the feeling that things have become over-extended for the time being.

However, it is worthwhile noting the very consistent long-term uptrend for this pair. With that in mind, this current retracement looks like a buying opportunity, with a break back below the 10.9581 support level required to negate that view.

    • Bitcoin (BTC) is breaking out, surging nearly 10% in a week and reclaiming the $67,000 level. This bullish trend has ignited questions about whether a new all-time high, or even the psychological barrier of $100,000, is within reach. Key Points:   Post-Halving Rally Echo: The current surge resembles past post-halving rallies, where Bitcoin's price historically jumps after its block reward gets reduced. This scarcity could be driving the current upswing.   Technical Indicators Support Bullish Outlook: Daily charts hint at a potential breakout from a resistance trendline, signifying the end of a corrective phase. Additionally, bullish signals emerge from technical indicators like VI lines and ADX. Fibonacci Levels Suggest Six-Figure Target: Based on Fibonacci levels, a significant price increase is on the table. If the momentum holds, a moonshot to $100,000 this year seems achievable. However, some analysts predict a more conservative target of $77,842 by Q2 2024.   AI Predicts Bullish Q2, But How Bullish?:  The analysis incorporates predictions from ChatGPT. While many expected a bullish forecast, ChatGPT surprised with a potential rally to a staggering $87,613 by the end of June! Is Bitcoin on the cusp of a historic bull run, or is this just a temporary spike?   Read the full article here for a deeper dive into the technical analysis, expert opinions, and a closer look at the AI's prediction:  https://coinpedia.org/price-analysis/chatgpt-predicts-how-high-can-bitcoin-price-rally-in-q2-2024/    
    • Pepe, the meme coin, has dropped 12% after reaching record highs earlier this week. This has investors wondering if it's a good time to buy. Why Did Pepe Surge? The Pepe price jump was linked to the return of an online personality known as "Roaring Kitty," who was a key figure in the meme stock craze of 2021. This triggered excitement around Pepe, similar to what happened with meme stocks back then. Is Now the Time to Buy Pepe? Experts say it might be a bit early. While the price has dropped, it's still significantly higher than usual. Instead of buying now, investors might want to wait for a retest of a specific price point (around $0.00000920) which could offer better buying opportunities. Why Are Some Investors Still Bullish on Pepe? Despite the recent drop, many believe Pepe has room to grow. Here's why: Popularity: Pepe is gaining popularity, which could drive the price up. Market Cap: Compared to other meme coins like Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, Pepe's market cap is still relatively low. This means there's potential for significant growth.
