What Determines the USD/TRY Exchange Rate?
Several factors can impact the USD/TRY rate valuation, including:
The Federal Reserve System (FRS) is the central bank of the United States and is commonly known as the Fed. It controls the U.S. monetary and financial system. The Federal Reserve System is composed of a central governmental agency in Washington, D.C., the Board of Governors, and twelve regional Federal Reserve Banks in larger cities across the United States.
The Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, CBRT (Turkish: Türkiye Cumhuriyet Merkez Bankası, TCMB) is the central bank of Turkey and is founded as a joint-stock company on 11 June 1930. Besides this, the CBRT maintains the monetary policy to pursue and the policy instruments to use in achieving price stability in Turkey. That means the CBRT enjoys instrument independence. To attain its purpose of price stability, the CBRT has completed a full-fledged inflation targeting regime since 2006.
The movement in American and Turkish economic events determine the exchange rates. Top of the line economic events include GDP, Employment Change, Industrial Production, and Consumer Price Index. Better than forecast data increases the demand for related currency and impacts the value of either the Europian and Turkish, causing fluctuations in the USD/TRY exchange rate.
Major Economic Events:
Gross Domestic Product – The gross domestic product is the central measure of economic growth in the region.
Employment Change – The currency pair is also sensitive to changes in employment, as slacks in the labor market causes a drop in Inflation rates.
Consumer Price Index – Since one of the goals of the Fed and CBRT is to maintain price stability, they keep an eye on inflation indicators such as the CPI. If the annual CPI deviates from the central Industrial Production – This measures a change in the total inflation-adjusted value of output produced by manufacturers, mines, and utilities.
Political Events - Another critical factor is the political aspect. Instability, as seen in the Brexit referendum, can entirely change the direction of the currencies. So, stay up-to-date on the latest political and economic news.

The Euro is one of the most important alternatives to the U.S. dollar among fiat currencies. This is why there is often a positive link between the Euro and gold: both assets are negatively correlated with the greenback. However, This is because gold is not merely an alternative against the U.S. dollar, but also against the current monetary system based on fiat currencies. Therefore, in some cases the Euro and the dollar both lose (or gain) ground against gold.
