What triggered the rise in Borsa Istanbul:
1-Elimination of VIOP concerns
September 30th is the expiration date for futures market contracts. There was concern that these contracts could not be completed due to large transactions in VIOP. It was announced that the detentions and the 2-year ban on trading imposed by the CMB on the names related to this incident increased investor confidence.
The US Supreme Court has chosen to hear Halkbank to assess the immunity of foreign state-owned companies from criminal investigation. Halkbank is seeking to dismiss charges of laundering $20 billion in oil and gas revenues by helping Iran evade economic sanctions. Earlier, the Second Circuit of the US Court of Appeals, while allowing the Halkbank proceedings to continue, said it did not need to decide whether the foreign sovereign immunity law should apply to criminal cases. The US Supreme Court’s decision to hear the bank was welcomed positively by the markets. Halkbank shares completed the day with an increase of 9.9 percent. The BIST Banking index also increased by 9.7 percent.
3- Expectation of reflection
The Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) reported today that annual inflation rose to 83.45 percent in September. Although inflation puts a burden on households, it also brings with it the expectation that company revenues will increase. This reflects ‘positively’ on share performances on TL basis.
4-Balance sheet period has begun
