TEHRAN- TEDPIX, the main index of Tehran Stock Exchange (TSE), is expected to resume its upward trend and reach 1.6 million points by the end of the current Iranian calendar month (December 20), a market analyst told IRNA.

The TSE index will continue its upward trend until the end of the current year (March 20, 2021) and is expected to reach 1.8 million points by the end of the year, Ahmad Eshtiaqi said.

Referring to the return of the uptrend to the stock market, Eshtiaqi said: "One of the factors affecting the uptrend in the stock market is the sharp correction of the index and stock prices in the market, which has once again motivated investors to re-enter the stock market."

Eshtiaqi stated that the lack of increase in bank interest rates is one of the influential factors in the return of growth to the stock market and said: “Initially, there were rumors about an increase in bank interest rates in the market, which strongly affected the market trading process and accelerated the downward trend of the stock market index, but with the news of the stabilization of bank interest rates, we have witnessed a positive impact on the market in the form of the resumption of liquidity inflow.”

"The market is not facing any fundamental issues currently, but shareholders should not be expecting surprising growth like what we saw in the first few months of this year," he said.

He further noted that other than some political issues like the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), no external factor is threatening the stability of the country’s stock market in near future.

After months of falling, TEDPIX once again resumed its upward trend in the past few weeks so that the index passed 1.4 million points in late November.

TEDPIX had hit the record high of two million points on August 2, and while it had been experiencing an unprecedented trend of rising for some months, the index has witnessed several weekly drops since mid-August.
