TL Sliding Down The Greasy Pole Again ?
« on: January 09, 2019, 07:58:26 AM »
Turkey’s lira slid after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan slammed the United States for its support of Kurdish militants in Syria and refused to meet with a senior U.S. official.

The lira fell to as low as 5.5 per dollar and traded down 2.1 percent at 5.49 against the currency at 4:58 p.m. in Istanbul.

The TL is at 7.00025 to the £ on xe.com this morning.

It's the first time the lira has been trading at over 7.00 to the pound since mid November.

Ooh from a purely selfish point of view I was hoping for it not to recover any time soon!   ;)

President Trump warned Turkey on Sunday of economic devastation if it attacks Kurdish forces in the wake of the US troop pullout from Syria, while also urging the Kurds not to 'provoke' Ankara.
