On Wednesday, the USD/TRY pair continued its moderate growth, reaching its new high since the end of September. The US Dollar has managed to hold its positions even after the publication of unexpectedly poor statistics on consumer inflation.
Balance in the pair was supported by the price of oil which was falling below $28 per barrel during yesterday. It should be noted that amid recent events in the global economy and uncertainty over further monetary policy of the Fed, ECB and some other central banks, market participants tend to shift their funds into safe-haven currencies.
