The Turkish lira rose during trading on Tuesday, continuing a rally after the Turkish central bank pledged last week to tighten monetary policy for a long period.
The Turkish currency stood at 7.1150 per dollar, by 08:33 GMT, up from a close of 7,1970 on Monday.
Earlier, the currency rose to 7.0925 pounds per dollar, its strongest level since the sixth of August. The lira has registered gains of more than 4.8 percent since the start of the year, making it one of the best performing emerging market currencies.
The lira last year closed down about 20 percent against the dollar. The Turkish currency recouped some of its losses in the last two months thanks to expectations of a more traditional approach under a central bank governor and a new finance minister.
