ISTANBUL, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Turkey's current account deficit widened to $4.48 billion in November from $1.96 billion a month earlier, central bank data showed on Friday, just below a Reuters poll forecast for a deficit of $4.8 billion.
In the first 11 months of the year, the deficit, regarded as a major weak point in the economy, was $45.24 billion, down from $70.38 billion a year earlier, the bank said.
