Turkish central bank sparks turnaround

  • The Turkish lira has undergone an extraordinary bounce after the country's central bank set an emergency meeting for tomorrow aimed at new policy measures to ensure price stability (i.e., a big rate hike).
  • At this point, a failure to raise rates in a big way is likely to really trigger a selloff, say some analysts. "They have to hike ... and aggressively," says Standard Bank's Tim Ash.
  • TUR +3.9% premarket, and Europe edges into the green for the session.
