Turkey on the verge of a currency crisis

  • Dolar/TL has gained about 20% in 2 weeks.


  • It is likely to inch up to 9.00 (currently at 8.30)


  • This massive and sudden devaluation will reverberate through a sickly economy like a nuclear aftershock.


  • How? Inflation will soar as early as May.  Overly-indebted companies will go into bankruptcy.


  • Wait…This is not the worst.


  • The devaluation-inflation spiral could trigger a bank run.
