Rates @ 12/10/2018

Why can't I just get the USD/TRY market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The USD/TRY mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google or the News, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the USD / TRY was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market USD/TRY midrate the better deal you are getting.

Currency News, Research and Forecasts for United States Dollar 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 must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the USD vs TRY, you should pay attention to both United States Dollar and Turkish Lira news and forecasts.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

2018 has been a good year for the dollar; certainly much better than 2017, in which the world’s reserve currency lost 10 percent of its value on a trade-weighted basis. Entering the third week of November 2018, the dollar stood nearly 5 percent higher than its level on January 1st. The dollar benefitted in the month leading up to this report from Brexit uncertainty in Europe and from a collapse in the oil market, which saw its value rise against petro-currencies.

Seasonality becomes an important supporting factor for the dollar approaching year-end, and especially in November. Since 2010, the dollar has averaged trade-weighted gains of 1.8 percent in November and 0.2 percent in December.

In September, Citibank said of the dollar’s 6-12-month outlook that 3-4 percent upside was likely, followed by an 11 percent loss in the long term. It predicted EUR/USD climbing as high as $1.30, from levels in the high $1.13s at the time of writing.

Like Citi, ING remain long-term bearish on the dollar. ING isn't ruling out interventions and jawboning from Washington aimed at weakening the dollar. President Trump clearly would like a far weaker currency.

J.P. Morgan said in November that the dollar would be worth slightly more in the first half of 2019, before weakening slightly in the second half of the year.

Turkish Lira (TRY) - Market news and forecasts

By early October, the Turkish lira had stabilized, albeit at low levels, following a full-on crisis in August, during which the lira fell at an alarming rate.

Between January and August 13th, the lira lost 46 percent of its value. By October 8th (the day of this report), at a rate of 6.1 to the US dollar, the lira’s loss for the year was down to 38 percent — better, but still disturbing.

Reasons for lira weakness are aplenty, and include high inflation, which neared 25 percent for the year to September; a deterioration in Washington-Ankara relations; threats to global trade from this year’s massive US tariffs; suspicions of political interference in matters of monetary policy; and firmer US yields and the firmer dollar, which make foreign loan repayments more expensive.

In October, ING warned against holding emerging market currencies like the lira; it suspected trade tensions would return following November’s US mid-term elections.
