USD/TRY Touches Lows into the Close

TURKEY
  • Some TRY strength noted through the London close, with USD/TRY slipping to 17.1950 in recent trade - puts the rate at the lowest levels since Jun10.

  • Late yesterday, the Turkish banking regulator launched fresh macroprudential measures on Liraization, changing risk rules surrounding banks’ usage of TRY swaps contracts. The measures see banks imposing a 500% risk weighting to TRY or FX loans – effectively increasing the cost of lending TRY to overseas investors.
