According to the survey results conducted before the TCMB’s PPK meeting, the expectation was 37.5%. However, with the decision taken, the policy rate exceeded expectations and reached 40%.

Contrary to the survey results, a decision was made to increase the interest rate above expectations, and the policy rate reached 40% contrary to economists’ expectations. Economists’ year-end expectation for the policy rate has also reached 40%.

Bitcoin (BTC) reached an all-time high of 1,019,860 against the Turkish Lira on October 24th. After today’s decision, BTC/TRY is seen at 1,084,000. The record highs experienced last month were due to expectations of the approval of a Bitcoin ETF in the US. During this period, Bitcoin prices also rose against the dollar, supporting the situation.
