BIST 100 index, which started the day with a rising trend, reached the highest level of all times with 105,999.70 points during the day due to risk appetite in global markets and appreciation of the Turkish lira.

The dollar depreciated against other currencies as the data released in the US in the afternoon came below the market expectation. Dollars / TL, saw the lowest level of last two weeks with 3.5343.

Experts comment that it would be appropriate to follow “demand forecast for the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey (CBRT) in July, labor force statistics for April and consumer confidence index for July” as well as China’s second quarter growth data and USA unemployment applications, in the coming week. On the other hand, it would also be very useful to follow the ratings of the credit rating agency Fitch for Turkey, on Friday.
