Turkey's central bank on Friday doubled its effective limit on asset purchases this year, as the bank hinted it would do last month, as a measure to backstop financial markets in the face of the coronavirus fallout.
In a statement, the bank said asset purchases this year could be up to 10 percent of its total assets, up from 5 percent.
The central bank also added a new limit on primary dealers' ability to sell government debt to it.
