easyMarkets Reassures Turkish Lira Traders

Trading as normal for Turkish Lira traders

18 July 2016

Following last week’s shocking events in Turkey we would like to update and reassure you of our ongoing commitment to your trading safety.

What Happened in Turkey

On Friday 15th July, a failed military coup in Turkey attracted the world’s attention. Culminating in a night of chaotic violence, government leaders have now declared it’s business as usual in Turkey. Extreme market volatility however, will remain a real challenge for traders this week.

Here’s What Turkish Lira Traders Need To Know

  • Market volatility soared following the attempted coup in Turkey
  • The Turkish Lira (TRY) plunged 4.6% on Friday night – the most in 8 years
  • Goldman Sachs lowered its forecasts for the lira over the weekend
  • Policy makers will provide unlimited liquidity to banks
  • The yield on Turkish 5 year local bonds has dropped more than every other emerging-market nation except Brazil
  • Long term concerns remain regarding economic policy and democracy in the country

  • 1:400 leverage
