Just been informed by my bank that interest rates on monthly deposit account will rise to 9.5% from 9% on July the 17th .This could account for why the weakening lira suddenly moved in the opposite direction .but if this rate rise is true I think we wil see the lira weaken further into the summer night even get back to 2.5 to the

scootex;

My intention by my msg7 was to point out to you,"dont be fooled by what they offer you".First go to another bank and ask them what they'll give you then go back to your own and tell them the offer.See if they up it or not.

You see,I'm still learning.

It is rather dangerous to transfer your money to another bank, just because they are offering higher percentage. Prefer the reputable but safe ones even if they have a lower percentage.
