D.R. on Varney & Co.: Turkish Currency Crisis Rattled the Markets- But Not for Long

While it’s easy to underestimate the power of emerging markets, they have a much greater influence on the established markets than you may expect. On Monday, Turkey’s currency took yet another nosedive, roughly 11% against the dollar, and this shook the U.S. markets and other major markets around the world. And that’s on top of a 20% plummet from last week. Much of the issue stems from a clash between Trump and the President of Turkey, Erdogan. On Friday, Trump gave the green light to double steel and aluminum tariffs on Turkey, signaling that relations between the two countries are not good. Nevertheless, on this episode of Varney and Co., Stuart Varney shares a barometer for Turkish investment that’s up 6 percent today. D.R weighs in on whether this momentum will last and cease to affect the U.S. markets. Click here to watch
