The TRY/USD stabilized during early trading on Monday morning. The pair rose to record levels at the end of last week, with the rise of the US dollar amid expectations of further tightening of monetary policy in the United States of America, in conjunction with the Turkish Central Bank cutting the interest rate in the country by about 50 basis points during its meeting last Thursday. The decision of the Central Bank of Turkey was in accordance with analysts’ expectations, as the interest rate reached levels of 8.5%, compared to 9%, which remained unchanged during the months of January 2023 and December 2022.
The Central Bank of Turkey follows a policy of monetary stimulus, in contrast to the US Federal Reserve, based on the desire of the country’s president, who controls the Actual of the country’s central bank. In the meantime, the negative effects of the devastating earthquake that struck the south of the country at the beginning of this month continued, as a group of experts predicted that the inflation rate in Turkey would not decline from 40% until the middle of this year, due to the rise in food and housing prices, as inflation will decline at a slower rate than expected. Previous forecasts also revealed that the cost of the devastating earthquake will exceed about $50 billion.
