There was an outflow of $15mn from government domestic debt securities in the week to April 30 that came on top of a total $1.21bn outflow from debt instruments in the previous three weeks, data of the central bank showed on May 7. The market value of non-residents’ holdings of government debt securities was $41.74bn as of April 30, said the central bank.

The Turkish equity market, on the contrary, saw an inflow of $316mn in the week to April 30 after the bank reported a total of $491mn inflows in the prior two weeks. The central bank calculated the market value of foreign investors’ holdings of Turkish equities at $53.73bn as of April 30.

Brazil, Indonesia and India were the top 3 performers this year while Turkey, Thailand and Hungary were the bottom three performers, said the IIF.
