Yesterday BITS 100 fell 5% an hour before closing and triggering the circuit breaker. There was significant foreign selling in the market and the main reason was the squeeze in swap markets. Global markets are signalling a positive opening in BIST, however illiquidity in TL may lead to further sales in the market. The volatility is still huge and the closing yesterday was below an important support level. 3.170-3.150 are the daily support levels. 3.220 should be broken up for further buying in the market.
