Sep E-mini stock futures this morning are down -8.50 points (-0.30%) at a 1-week low and European stocks are down -0.70% at a 1-1/4 month low. Concern about contagion of the Turkish economic crisis to the European banking system is hammering bank stocks and leading the overall market lower. The Turkish lira plunged to a record low of 7.2362 against the dollar and the yield on Turkeys 2-year government bond surged more than 90 bp to a 10-year high of 25.7%. The lira recovered from its worst levels but was still down more than 7% after Turkey's central bank took steps to boost liquidity. The meltdown in Turkey spurred selling of EUR/USD and safe-haven demand for German bunds as EUR/USD dropped -0.32% to a 13-1/4 month low and the 10-year bund yield fell to a 5-week low of 0.306%. Asian markets settled lower as China's Shanghai Composite closed down -0.34% and Japan's Nikkei Stock Index closed down -1.98% at a 1-month low. USD/JPY fell -0.39% to a 1-1/2 month low, which undercut Japanese exporter companies and led losses on the Nikkei Stock Index. The dollar index is up +0.10% at a 13-1/2 month high. Sep 10-year T-notes are down -0.5 of a tick.

Turkey's central bank raised the collateral forex deposit limits for Turkish lira transactions to 20 billion euros from 7.2 billion euros and banks' current foreign exchange deposit limits of around $50 billion may be increased and utilization limits may be improved if deemed necessary.
