The lira extends its march south and now pushes USD/TRY to daily tops near 11.2000, where some resistance appears to have turned up for the time being.
USD/TRY advances for the ninth consecutive session on Friday, always on the back of the indefatigable lira selloff although this time the strong upside in the greenback also helps the pair extending the rally.
Indeed, the ongoing context favours the risk aversion and therefore lends extra legs to the buck despite US yields trade on the defensive so far on Friday.
The pair, in the meantime, trades a tad below Thursday’s all-time highs near 11.2800, recorded in the aftermath of another reduction of the One-Week Repo Rate by the Turkish central bank (CBRT) at its meeting. Losses in TRY has been also exacerbated after the central bank left the door (wide) open to another interest rate cut at the December event.
The lira has so far shed more than 33% vs. the US dollar and remains the worst performing EM currency by far this year. The last time the pair advanced for ten sessions in a row was back in 2019, from April 18th until May 1st. We’re just there… about to break another record.
So far, the pair is gaining 0.35% at 11.1152 and a drop below 10.2276 (10-day SMA) would expose 9.8325 (high Oct.25) and finally 9.4722 (monthly low Nov.2). On the other hand, the next up barrier lines up at 11.2792 (all-time high Nov.18) followed by 12.0000 (round level).
