No clear trend on financial markets, except in Turkey

The Turkish currency and the stock market posted declines of around 10% in the wake of the dismissal of the central bank governor. The downward correction is likely not over. The USD is rather stable otherwise, as it has been the case for around 10 days. The EUR/USD exchange rate is stabilizing just above 1.19.
