Turkey could lower rates, BofA says
In contrast to a consensus call for tighter policy, Bank of America expects the Turkish central bank to lower rates on concerns about growth.

MYR Outlook Solid Despite Political Risks – BBH says.
The outlook for the MYR is solid despite political risks, Brown Brothers Harriman writes in a note. “Looking at recent price action in USD/MYR, you wouldn’t think there is much political risk being priced in. We tend to agree,” it writes.
