Turkey - Factors to Watch on Feb 12

ISTANBUL, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Here are news, reports and events that may affect Turkish financial markets on Friday.

The benchmark 10-year government bond yield stood at 10.75 percent at the spot close on Thursday and was at 10.78 percent in Friday-dated trade.


Asian shares slipped on Friday as mounting concerns about the health of European banks further threatened a global economic outlook already under strain from falling oil prices and slowdown in China and other emerging markets. The prices of yen, gold and liquid government bonds of favoured countries soared as investors rushed to traditional safe-haven assets.


Major powers agreed on Friday to a cessation of hostilities in Syria set to begin in a week and to provide rapid humanitarian access to besieged Syrian towns, but failed to secure a complete ceasefire or an end to Russian bombing.
