Turkish Lira volatility gauges calm to lowest since August
LONDON - Reuters
The Turkish Lira’s “implied” volatility hit its lowest since early August and broke through a key technical level on Nov. 14, as falling oil prices added to a general easing of worries around the currency in the last few months.
Three-month implied volatility dropped to as low as 18.90, which also took in under the 200-day moving average on the option which was at 19 on Nov. 14.
Money markets, though still hard to read accurately, are also starting to price a modest fall in interest rates going forward, having been pricing in rate rises for most of the last year.
