Turkish lira - market update

The Turkish lira was among 2017’s worst performing currencies, having lost nearly 7% of its value against an extremely weak US dollar.

In early 2018, the lira is once again underperforming. Rates in late February were nearly identical to those at the start of the year, at roughly 3.8 per dollar, despite most emerging market currencies appreciating within the same period.

Investors continue to be frightened away from the lira and from investing in Turkish assets by inflation, which in 2018 continues to run in double figures. January’s year-on-year core inflation came in at an extraordinary 12.2% and marked the sixth consecutive month of double-figure core readings.

In late 2017, asset management group GAM cited high inflation as its principle reason for predicting an economic crisis in Turkey – a crisis that might come in 2018. GAM cleared its portfolio of all positions in Turkish assets.

Other reasons for the lira’s weakness include 2018’s military conflict between Turkey and US-backed Kurdish militia in Syria.

Against the euro, the lira fell in February to its lowest level since 2005’s redenomination, as EUR/TRY hit 4.737.
