What influences the AUD/TRY exchange rate?

The Turkish lira (TRY) uses a floating exchange rate system, and the AUD also functions within a floating exchange rate system. Supply and demand within the market help to determine exchange rates, and the determinants of forex supply and demand include monetary policies, economic fundamentals, and international developments.2 .Although the TRY is a currency that’s traded less frequently compared to others on the forex market, the AUD/TRY is one of its more commonly traded pairs.3


Since 2008, the TRY has been on a steady decline against the AUD due largely to the political turmoil and military unrest in recent years. Terror attacks and geographic proximity to the civil war in Syria have contributed to the currency crisis in Turkey by creating a refugee crisis and by spooking foreign investors.4
