The Turkish lira stabilized near its all-time low, which was recorded yesterday, as the price breached the top recorded during the last year, which the pair declined immediately after reaching it.
The Turkish currency continues its slow decline against the US dollar as investors await the Federal Reserve’s announcement later in the day regarding a rate hike after the country’s latest inflation reading revealed a higher-than-expected rise. The US Federal Reserve is expected to raise the interest rate by about 75 basis points, amid other expectations to raise the interest rate by about a full percentage point.
It is noteworthy that the difference in monetary policies is one of the biggest reasons for the decline of the lira. While the US Federal Reserve tightens monetary policy as it raises the interest rate, the Turkish Central Bank adheres to a stimulus monetary policy based on lowering the interest rate. It is noteworthy that the slow movement of the lira is mainly due to the intervention of the Turkish Central Bank in the markets, as it prevents the decline of the strong lira by injecting more foreign currencies into the markets.
