USD TRY, US Dollar Turkish Lira Commentary and Analysis on 04.05.2018
Serkan İşlek, Research Expert – USDTRY, US Dollar Turkish Lira Forecast and Analysis
After the bad inflation yesterday, the CBRT said: The increase in energy inflation is likely to continue in the short term, while the rise in energy and core goods is said to be effective. As the election calendar progresses on the domestic side, political tension rises, geopolitical developments and international economic developments are followed. One of the reasons for the speculation is that the debt crisis may explode in emerging countries after the recent deterioration in the Argentine economy.
While significant economic data are not disclosed on the domestic side, Non-Farm Employment, Average Hourly Earnings and Unemployment Rate. While Non-Farm Employment remained below expectations with 164 thousand, it was seen that the data of the last month was revised upwards. Average Hourly Earnings increased by 0.1 percent while expectations for March were revised downward. The unemployment rate tested at 3.9 percent in December 2000. While the rest of the day will be followed by disclosures of some FOMC members in the US, systematic risk elements will continue to be monitored at home.
If we look technically; the Exchange rate seems to be close to the level of 4.26. It is no longer necessary to say support-resilience in these levels as prices, news flows and economic realities are the source. However, in the case of upward movements, the regions corresponding to the formation or the upper channels of the channel are resisted, while in the downward direction, the regions corresponding to the trend lines are supported with eyes.
Eda Karadağ, Research Expert – USDTRY, US Dollar Turkish Lira Forecast and Analysis
Since the morning hours, the TL is depreciating against the major currencies, and the record level in the USD / TL exchange rate is making the markets uneasy. In fact, we can say that there is no recent data or news-based action. In 2018, unexpected rating cuts from international credit rating agencies, an increase in inflation figures, a deterioration in the current account deficit and an early election process are causing the fragility of TL assets to continue. Deterioration in risk perception towards Turkey has already begun. Turkey’s 5-year CDS figure of 228 points with Turkey held on April 16, 2017 which draws attention to the levels rise during the referendum. We can say that there is a serious increase in this movement in the CDS chart and that it put pressure on the TL. In short, the fragility of TL assets may be expected to continue for a while longer unless we receive news flows that will relieve the TL.
The figures for non-farm employment and hourly earnings released from the US were followed today. The data set disclosed does not seem to cause any serious volatility on the dollar. In particular, the Fed’s recent forecasts that it will not make any changes to its language will not open a new page on pricing. We also observe that in the foreign market, the Dollar index is above the 92.00 level and this situation is disturbing the developing country markets.
In emerging market markets, the most negative non-TL currency is the Argentine Pezosu.Argentina’s risk premium is also higher than the current political uncertainty in Turkey and there. In the face of this picture, Argentina’s central bank has increased the country’s policy rate by 600 BP since April 27th. But there is still a very positive picture on the Argentinean Pezosu. Obviously, if we think that this movement in Argentina and the aggressive attitude of the Central Bank of Argentina disturbs the GOPs, we can interpret the TL as a negative diminution indirectly from the frustration in this sector.
In short, the external market outside Turkey, especially in developing countries could be a new story about the limited impact on the TL is useful to think about. Therefore, in TL, sensitivity is still high and it is good to be cautious about possible record levels.
USD / TRY Technical Analysis: The USD / TL exchange rate has aggressively regained its record today and its latest record is at 4.29. You can watch this level as a resistance point, and rising on this level requires you to be cautious about possible new record attempts. It is worth noting that the correction will come after the new record tests.Nowadays, we are on level 4.25 and as long as you stay on this level, you can continue to keep your upward tendency. In the first place, we need to see 4.20 below and 4.15 below to see that the coach is relieved.
Supports: 4.25 / 4.2145 / 4.20 Resistanace: 4.29

Ekin Akbaş, Research Director – USDTRY, US Dollar Turkish Lira Forecast and Analysis
According to the data released by the Turkstat yesterday morning, the April CPI increase was 1.87%. The market expectation was 1.5% and our institutional estimate was 1.6%. The annual increase in inflation has increased from 10.23% to 10.85% in this framework. After the inflation data on expectations, the sales pressure of Turkish lira accelerated and the USDTRY parity reached record high levels. Following the note discount from the S & P, the perception of TL assets was already weak. On top of this, a high inflation rate was added to accelerate the sales in TL and the exchange rate broke new record by exceeding 4.24 yesterday. It is observed that the Kurdish course has a fluctuating course around 4.23 as of this morning hours. The current market closure will be very important in terms of short term outlook. If Kurun’s current closure is to be made on the 4.18 level, which corresponds to the medium-term ascension channel border, the upside will be broken upwards.
In this case, it may be expected that after the official break of the channel, the build will continue its upward movement next week and set the band 4,18 – 4,30 as the new movement area. However, if the current close (ie weekly close) is below the 4.18 level, the bull may be expected to retreat to the 4,10 – 4,13 levels with a technical correction in the upcoming period. Therefore, in terms of the short term outlook of the exchange rate, the current market closing will be very decisive.
Today we will closely monitor the employment data coming from the US at noon. The USDTRY, which is trading at 4.2293 as of this morning, has not reached a record high level of resistance, which could limit upward movements due to record levels close to record levels.
