Turkish Lira Hits a Record Low
After the parliamentary elections as a result of which the ruling AK party did not win the majority of the votes, Turkish lira hit a record low, CNN reports.
The lira fell to 2.81 against the U.S. dollar, about 5% lower than on Friday. According to the source lira is now becoming one of the worst performing emerging market currencies. Stocks in Istanbul dropped nearly 6% in morning trading.
