EghtesadOnline: Tehran Stock Exchange’s main index gained 646.50 points or 0.68% to end Monday trade at 96,208.
The gains came after the benchmark lost 1,649.82 points or 1.70% on Sunday following new market-changing regulations and protests over price rises in Tehran and other cities. This was TEDPIX’s largest fall since March 2015.
The index had lost 1,147 points over the three trading days to Sunday, as protests spread after posting spectacular gains in the preceding two weeks.
Market expert Hamid Mirmoeini described the Sunday drop as “overreaction” and noted that many will see the current lower prices as an opportunity for buying. He told Financial Tribune that other rival markets are still no match for stocks’ returns, forecasting that trade will pick up again in the capital market, as companies return with the nine-month performance reports.
