TEDPIX at 6-Week Low

Stocks suffered another bout of selling at Tehran Stock Exchange on Sunday dragging down TEDPIX to a six-week low to underscore the bearish sentiment prevailing at the TSE.
According to TSE data, the benchmark stretched the losing streak it has been recording since August 8 and slipped 389 points or 0.59% to end at 65,314.3.

Systemic risks, including feedstock prices, recession, global slowdown and banking issues, keep draining the equity market and curtailing investors’ enthusiasm to engage in the stock market.
