USD/TRY Price Outlook

Check our latest Q3 forecasts for free and learn what is likely to move the markets at this time of the year.

USD/TRY – Trading Lower

Last week USD declined against Turkish Lira hitting its lowest levels in near four month. USD/TRY closed the weekly candlestick with 1.9% loss, emphasizing the bearish outlook of the market at this stage.

Since the end of May, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been moving below 50. The oscillator failed twice to cross above this threshold, indicating the buyer’s weakness to start a bullish momentum.

Therefore, a close below the low end of the zone, could lead the price towards 5.3033. Although, the weekly support levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) would be worth monitoring.

On the other hand, if the pair fails to close below the low end of the zone, this could reverse its direction sending the price towards the high end of the zone. Nonetheless, the weekly and daily resistance levels underscored on the chart should be watched closely.
