TRY: hopes of deliverance

TRY: hopes of deliverance

Information is not investment advice

In just several hours, USD/TRY went down from 8.40 to 8.00. Although we already got pretty used to turbulence with the Turkish lira, a move this big is something quite outstanding. What’s happening?

Two days ago, the Turkish President Erdogan fired the central bank governor Murat Uysal. One day ago, the President’s son-in-law Berat Albayrak – the Finance Minister of Turney – announced he would go too. These events may well be a consequence of the fact that the Turkish lira lost very much value this year, the inflation is very high, and the Turkish central bank was reluctant to raise the rates under these conditions… so far. Hopes that this “so far” would change are the emotional spark that pushes the lira.

On the other hand, we don’t really know what stands between those announcements in the circles of Turkish financial authorities. It may also be that it was just another personnel toss that Erdogan did to ensure the faithfulness of those who rule the lira. In this case, we will see the Turkish lire get back into the negative zone.

The reality is: the Turkish lira doesn’t care who is the Turkish central bank governor or the minister of finance. The actions are what matters, who delivers them – doesn’t. And as long the direction of the monetary policy in Turkey – which is very politely called “unorthodox” by observers – stays the same, the lira will do nothing but lose value. Therefore, don’t take this drop as a game-changer yet. Rather, it’s a good offer for a tactical entry.

Will the FOMC Surprise the Markets?

The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.

Will USDJPY slide lower in 2023?

Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January. What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
