ISTANBUL, Feb 4 (Reuters) - Here are news, reports and events that may affect Turkish financial markets on Monday.

The yield on the two-year benchmark bond inched down to 5.84 percent from Thursday's close at 5.85 percent.
Istanbul's main share index closed up 1.83 percent at 80,221.68 points, outperforming a rise of 0.28 percent in the global emerging markets index.
Asian shares advanced on Monday, drawing momentum from U.S. data showing some promise of a credible recovery, supported by Federal Reserve's easing plans and solid manufacturing data from Europe and China.
The yen took a break from heavy selling against the U.S. dollar and the euro, but fell to its lowest since August 2008 against the Australian and New Zealand dollars early on Monday on confidence of bold monetary support from the Bank of Japan to overcome the country's stubborn deflation.
The Turkish Statistics Institute is scheduled to release inflation data for January (0800 GMT). According to a Reuters poll, consumer price inflation was expected to be 1.14 percent on the month, while year-end inflation was seen at 6.50 percent.
Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday Turkey might cancel some privatisations as the tenders did not meet expectations, citing the example of the sale of roads and bridges and the Baskent Gaz gas distributor.
