USD/TRY: Dollar resumed growth

February 16, 2016

Current trend

Since the beginning of this week, the pair continues strengthening amid some reduction in anxiety on the market. The Dollar was supported by data on Retail Sales that came out in the US on Friday. In January, the index grew by 0.2% that was slightly better than forecasts of economists. At the same time, the Turkish Lira remains under pressure due to growing tensions around the Syrian conflict.

Bollinger Bands on the daily chart is turning horizontally while the price range is narrowing. MACD is growing and giving a quite strong buy signal. Stochastic is near the middle of its range and turning up again.

The indicators recommend waiting for clearer trading signals.
