The monetary policy implemented by the CBRT has direct impact on the markets in Turkey. The CBRT conducts open market operations in order to regulate the money supply and liquidity in the economy and it is also responsible for ensuring efficient distribution of the Turkish lira liquidity in the banking system.

Accordingly, the CBRT provides loans for banks to remedy temporary liquidity squeezes that hamper payment systems and payment problems stemming from technical problems that hinder effective functioning of the financial markets.
