ISTANBUL, June 20 (Reuters) – Here are news, reports and events that may affect Turkish financial markets on Tuesday.
The lira stood at 3.5170 against the U.S. dollar at 0457 GMT, firming from 3.5231 at Monday’s close.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year bond was at 10.44 percent in spot trade on Monday and was at the same level in Tuesday-dated trade.
The main BIST 100 share index rose 1.16 percent to 99,332.13 points on Monday.
Japan’s Nikkei rose more than 1 percent to a near two-year high on Tuesday, encouraged by rebound in U.S. hi-tech shares as investors bet on solid growth in the economy and corporate profits globally. MSCI‘s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan held firm near a two-year high struck last week, but was little changed on the day, with gains in high-tech firms offset by a decline in Australian shares.
OPPOSITION CHP MEETING
Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the leader of the main opposition CHP, will hold the party’s regular parliamentary group meeting (1030 GMT) on the road during the sixth day of his “justice march” from Ankara to Istanbul to demonstrate against a 25-year prison sentence handed down to a CHP lawmaker over spying charges.
The Treasury will announce central government debt stock data for end-May (1430 GMT).
