Turkey’s central bank expected to lower policy rate by 50 bps to 10.75% – Reuters


According to a recently conducted Reuters poll of 15 institutions, the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey (CBRT) is expected to lower its policy rate, one-week repo auction rate, by 50 basis points to 10.75% later this week.

“A rate hike was not among the forecasts, which ranged from no change to a 75-point cut in benchmark rate,” Reuters further noted.
