Turkey bans lenders from trading liras with #Citi, #UBS, #BNP
Turkey’s banking watchdog barred local lenders from trading liras with Citibank NA., BNP Paribas SA and UBS AG, saying the three foreign banks failed to meet their lira liabilities.
UBS declined to comment. A BNP representative wasn’t immediately available to comment.
The currency weakened to a record low against the dollar earlier Thursday but erased losses following the regulator’s announcement. It was trading 1.2% higher at 7.1065 per dollar at 3:31 p.m. in Istanbul.
The regulator has recently limited the amount of liras Turkish banks can make available to foreign investors and banks, in an apparent attempt to make it tougher to bet against the local currency.
