TRY rate decision - 1200 BST

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

Crunch time in Ankara at 1200 BST today. Reuters polls are suggesting an increase of 425 basis points to 22%.  Turkish banks, among them Garanti & IS bank, seem to be calling this much higher with predictions of 500bp / 22.75%.

Most US & EU banks are hiding their cards. Privately a few of our liquidity providers are suggesting 500bp over the next two Central Bank meetings and a 300bp rise today; of course these are 3rd party predictions so usual caveats apply.

We intend to widen guaranteed stop distances in the run up to this (and other pairs for MPC/ ECB), either way expect some volatility across all TRY pairs.

**** Christ banging out a 5% IR rise in a single decision. How on earth does this work for the wider economy... just imagine an actually useful currency (lol) having that sort of movement. The market shits with an unexpected 25bip movement.

whos got a helmet? Only play I see here is getting in after the initial spike and wait for liquidity to come back before doing the reverse trend for a few moments and then getting out fast!

TRY falls 3% on 'lower rates' comment.

He already knows how much the rate rise will be so now signalling the pretence of CB independence.

Pastor Brunson court hearing still a month away.

This is going to be a rollercoaster ride with lashings of slippage.

Now that Erdogan has made himself head of the country's sovereign wealth fund perhaps he could appoint himself head of the central bank too.

See he has restarted his 'hold TRY not $' campaign, if only he had some kind of apparatus to make people do as he says.

    • Another blow to economic growth - EMEA Brief 15 Feb
      Weak retail figures in the US have spilled over to most major stock markets, with European stocks set to open lower this morning. The 1.2% decline in retail sales for the month of December, the biggest drop in almost ten years,  have brought new fears that we are facing a global economic slowdown. The DJIA closed 104 points lower at 25,439.39, the S&P 500 closed 7 points lower at 2,745.73, whilst the Nasdaq managed to close in the positive with a gain of 6.6 points at 7,426.96.
