USD/TRY Technical Analysis: Descending triangle in the hourly chart hints at further decline

  • The Turkish Lira has appreciated to fresh 2-week highs vs. the greenback following yesterday’s rate hike by the CBRT by more than 600 bp, so far finding support in the proximity of the 6.00 handle.
  • The likelihood of a ‘descending triangle’ formation in the hourly chart gives support to the idea that further downside appears probable in the near term.
  • Interim targets on the downside emerge at yesterday’s low at 6.0167 ahead of 5.6675 (low August 16).
