3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Euro and Turkish lira

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency is always determined quoted in comparison to another currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the EUR vs TRY, you should pay attention to both Euro and Turkish lira news and forecasts.

Euro (EUR) - Market news and forecasts

On June 14th, the euro had one of its worst days in recent memory after the ECB signalled it would leave interest rates unchanged at 0.0 percent until the latter stages of 2019. A day later (the day of this report), the euro was trading in the mid-$1.15s versus the dollar and looked set to lose more of its value (earlier in the year it had traded in the mid-$1.25s), and had fallen towards the bottom end of its long-term trading range against the pound, at £0.873.

The ECB did at least announce it would phase out quantitative easing in Europe, which kept the euro’s losses within reasonable limits. QE will be terminated at the end of the year.

Goldman Sachs described the June ECB meeting as a “material negative for the euro.”

Prior to the ECB decision, Danske Bank had estimated a median price for EUR/USD in H2 2018 of 1.18; the bank saw a return to the 1.20s as unlikely in the near term (that's almost certain after the ECB meeting). Danske had predicted a “foot-dragging” ECB that would be “reactive rather than active.”

Turkish lira (TRY) - Market news and forecasts

The Turkish lira’s perpetual decline continues in 2018.

In May, USD/TRY reached 4.289, marking yet another all-time low in the lira’s value. 2018 is now the sixth calendar year from the past seven, and the ninth from the past thirteen, in which a record low has been achieved.

Investors continue to be frightened away from the lira and from Turkish assets in general by inflation, which continues to run in double figures. In April, annual core inflation stood at 12.2%.

Given the Turkish central bank’s failure to act on inflation in the form of an increase to its benchmark interest rate, questions have been raised over the bank’s independence (President Erdogan is well known to hold a dislike for high interest rates).

Other issues weighing on the lira in 2018 have included Turkey’s current account deficit, which has more than doubled within the past year; a significant deterioration in US-Turkey relations, due to diverging foreign policies for conflict-engulfed Syria; threats to global trade from new US tariffs and firmer US yields.

Unless Turkish interest rates are raised quickly, the lira will continue underperforming, thinks BNP Paribas.
