EghtesadOnline: Tehran stocks fell deeper on Sunday extending a losing streak that has dominated the market for more than two weeks.
The benchmark of Tehran Stock Exchange, TEDPIX, shed 65,023 points to plunge further by 3.76% and close trade at 1,662,215. It now stands at a point reached almost one and a half month ago, on July 5. It has parted ways from the historic peak by a solid 500,000 points.
The downturn came despite the fact that observers expected a better sentiment on Sunday after bourse officials decided to adopt supportive measures a day earlier to prop up the market.
With sell-off pressure mounting on majority of stocks and money flowing out, it appears that the regulator’s supportive measures have a long way to go.
About 6.05 billion shares valued at 92.5 trillion rials ($411.13 million) changed hands at TSE on Sunday.
Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company contributed the most to the benchmark's fall, followed by Social Security Investment Company, Mobarakeh Steel Company and National Iranian Copper Industries Company.
Amin Investment Bank gave the biggest boost to the benchmark index, followed by Behsaz Kashaneh Tehran Company, Sepahan Industrial Group Company and Dashtestan Cement Industries Company.
