Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey

October 26, 2017

Turkey’s 9.25% marginal funding rate, 7.25% overnight borrowing rate, and 8.0% one-week repo rate were all left unchanged. The last change made in any of these rates was a 75-basis point hike in the marginal funding rate in January of 2017. The Monetary Policy Committee released a statement today defending the decision not to relax its “tight” policy stance and proclaiming a determination to maintain the stance until the inflation outlook improves significantly and becomes consistent with the Bank’s target. “If needed, further monetary tightening will be delivered.”
