How much has Turkey's currency dropped?
The top USA diplomat in Turkey has called for the cases against an American pastor and others held in Turkey to be resolved "without delay" and in a "fair and transparent manner".
Brunson's lawyer, Ismail Cem Halavurt, said the court had up to seven days to decide.
Trump and Erdoğan hammered out a deal for the USA to get Israel to release a Turkish woman imprisoned for alleged links to Hamas, and for Turkey to release detained United States pastor Andrew Brunson - or so Trump thought, sources tell The Guardian. Brent crude lost 0.3 per cent to US$72.61 a barrel in London. "His rhetoric reflects a desire to support Turkish electronics businesses like Vestel".
He noted that the USA has punished its own allies, an apparent reference to Turkey that recently faced US sanctions over the continued detention of an American pastor on espionage and terror-related charges. The lack of interest-rate action has coincided with a marked worsening of Turkey's relations with the US.
Some say Turkey is already a de facto dictatorship.
"We can't be fighting with everybody and at the same time expect that the economy will correct itself", Selcuki said. Trump is said to feel personally and viscerally affronted by Turkey's refusal to free the pastor after he secured the release of Turkish activist Ebru Ozkan by Israel.
Erbil's comments echoed those by Turkiye Is Bankasi CEO Adnan Bali, who said the steps were "the right moves in the right direction" in an interview on BloombergHT television a day earlier.

Do not forget to drain water from tires, cans, flowerpots, clogged rain gutters, rain barrels, toys and puddles. The agency says an adult resident of the town of Mead fell ill on July 27 and was hospitalized the next day.
Turkish citizens could be in for a rough ride, as a combative Erdoğan clings to power, takes swings at the United States, and the Turkish currency continues to get battered.
A boycott would serve as retaliation against the U.S. sanctions on two Turkish ministers over the detention of American pastor Andrew Brunson, as well as President Donald Trump's doubling of tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum imports last week, which resulted in a massive drop in the lira's value, according to Reuters. If the evangelical pastor is found guilty, he will face up to 35 years in jail.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters that the top USA diplomat in Turkey would visit Brunson later Tuesday. "In our country we have Venus and Vestel", he said, referring to a Turkish-made phone made by electronics manufacturer Vestel.
"In the end, it doesn't make economic sense for him, it doesn't make political sense for him, to deny his people the best products that they're used to", Rao said. This has caused the dollar to increase, the lira to fall, and Turkish bond yields to rise.
The business groups also urged the drawing up of a roadmap to reduce inflation.
Mr Brunson was released from prison and placed under house arrest last month after serving 21 months in pre-trial detention in a Turkish prison on charges related to the 2016 attempted coup in Turkey.
Önder wants the Turkish government to take the current financial crisis more seriously.
Turkey's economic crisis boils down to heavy reliance on foreign investments made in dollars, while Turkish assets are valued in lira, and the lira has been declining at an alarming rate (although it appeared to stabilize somewhat on Tuesday).
