    Turkey Isn’t Following Argentina in a Meltdown. For Now.

    For a few days there, it looked like Argentina might start a trend toward emerging market financial meltdowns. Turkey’s currency, the lira, plunged 3% against the dollar on Aug. 19 and 20. “I would strongly emphasize that the best of Turkey’s recovery is over,” says Aaron Hurd, senior currency portfolio manager at State Street Global Advisors.

    Latest Move by Turkey President to Fire Central Bank Official Shocks Investors

    President Tayyip Erdogan did no favors for Turkey investors after canning the country’s central bank chief over the weekend in order to install his own deputy as a replacement. The latest move sent the country's stock market index down 1% and its local currency, the lira, down 1.5%. “I wouldn’t say it’s a complete shock but it is definitely a surprise because it looked like the central bank was already on its way to cutting rates,” said Pictet Asset Management portfolio manager Guido Chamorro.

    Turkey Plans to Roll Out Dollar-Denominated Bond Amid Recovery

    In an effort to reignite investor interest in Turkey debt, the country will offer a dollar-denominated bond to the international fixed income market. To facilitate this offering, the country hired BNP Paribas, Citigroup and HSBC to sell a dollar-denominated bond that will mature in 2024, according to the Ministry of Treasury and Finance. "Turkey’s international bond announcement attracted a lot of attention this morning, with many observers raising a logical question about the use of proceeds (in light of the recent currency interventions)," wrote VanEck economist Natalie Gurushina.

    Another Trouble Spot For Turkey ETF

    The controversial, much-maligned iShares MSCI Turkey ETF (TUR) is up more than 11% this month even as currency market observers fret about the strength of the lira. Last summer, low interest rate levels, high inflation and geopolitical tensions weighed heavily on Turkey’s economy. In addition, U.S.President Donald Trump imposed sanctions on Turkey’s interior and justice ministers for their role in the internment of U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson as well as other Americans for terrorism.

    Turkish Trouble Lurks Again For This ETF

    It has been another brutal year for investors in the iShares MSCI Turkey ETF (NASDAQ: TUR). TUR is lower by more than 13 percent just this month and some market observers are concerned more pressure could be coming on the often embattled Turkish lira, which has historically spelled trouble for TUR and Turkish stocks. “The Turkish lira is on the verge of a crisis that would surpass what was experienced in August-September 2018,” said IHS Markit in a recent note.

    GF Securities Co.'s GTEC Pandion Multi-Strategy Fund SP got burned by foreign exchange trades in the Turkish lira during the summer of 2018, leading to losses that amounted to $139 million and caused prime broker Citigroup to execute margin calls.

    More Tumult For The Turkey ETF

    Volatility is often the name of the game with the iShares MSCI Turkey ETF (NASDAQ: TUR) and that has been the case in recent trading sessions. Last week, it was reported Turkey's official reserves unexpectedly declined, pushing the central bank there into surprise tightening measures that did little to stem the lira's slide. Turkish authorities have a history of clashing with international banks and credit ratings agencies when volatility spikes in the country's financial markets and that tradition was renewed following last week's lira plunge.

    Turkey ETF Plunges on Weakening Confidence in Lira Currency

    Turkey country-specific exchange traded fund was among the worst hit on Friday's sell-off as the broader risk-off mood coupled with the plunge in the Turkish lira currency dragged on this emerging market. The iShares MSCI Turkey ETF (TUR) was among the worst performing non-leveraged ETFs of Friday, plunging 10.5% and breaking below its long-term support at the 200-day simple moving average. On top of the broader risk-off selling that plagued the markets on Friday, Turkey's market was dragged down by an ongoing rout in the wake of an unexplained drop in official reserves, despite the Turkish central bank's surprise tightening to stem the fall.
