Turkey’s lira pulled back from a record low of 6.96 to the dollar on Aug. 13 after the central bank pledged to provide liquidity and cut reserve requirements for Turkish banks, but its meltdown continued to rattle global markets.
The currency has lost more than 40 percent against the dollar this year, largely over worries about President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s influence over the economy, his repeated calls for lower interest rates, and worsening ties with the United States.
On Aug. 10, that relentless slide turned into a crash: The lira dropped as much as 18 percent, hitting U.S. and European stocks as investors took fright over banks’ exposure to Turkey.
The fresh lira collapse late on Aug. 12 hit Asian shares, weakened South Africa’s rand and drove demand in global markets for safe currencies including the dollar, Swiss franc and yen. Shares in Europe’s major banks also lost ground.
As of Aug. 13, the lira was trading at 6.25 per \100. (Reuters)
