October 19, 2019

TEHRAN- TEDPIX, the main index of Tehran Stock Exchange (TSE), has fallen 3,402 points to 309,647 during the five working days of the past Iranian calendar week (Saturday to Wednesday), Tasnim news agency reported.

The report said that 16.496 billion securities worth 75.752 trillion rials (about $1.803 billion) were traded through 1.677 million deals at TSE during the past week.

While lagging the parallel markets of foreign currency, gold coin, and real estate behind, Iran’s stock market hit a new record during the first half of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21-September 22), as TEDPIX, the main index of TSE, closed at an all-time high of 302,103 points.

It is while the index had stood at 178,000 points at the end of the previous calendar year.

Experiencing a growth of 74 percent during the first six months of the present year, TSE witnessed its best performance since the Iranian calendar year of 1382 (March 2003-March 2004).

Also as reported, Iran’s over-the-counter (OTC) market, known as Iran Fara Bourse (IFB), has experienced a noticeable positive performance during the first half, as its main index, IFX, gained 78 percent during the mentioned period of time.

It seems that these markets will preserve their positive performances also during the second half of the year, as TEDPIX gained 9,367 points (the highest rise so far) in the first day of the second half and the value of trades at TSE and IFB reached 32 trillion rials (about $761.9 million).
