“Diplomatic tensions between US and Turkey over the house detention of Pastor Brunson is culminating in a set of US tensions on Turkey. The market will be watching the unfolding of the new diplomatic spat with great anxiety, which is likely to translate in a weaker lira and higher TRY rates.”


“We are in no technicals land as the pair has just broken the July 12 all-time high of 4.9743. A break above the psychological 5 mark would likely extend the selloff.”
