– CBI’ deputy oversight announced that more than a dozen Iranian banks are reluctant to disclose their financial statements with regards to IFRS standards. Claiming that the localized version of IFRS has structural defects, banks’ managers are dodging the responsibility of transparent disclosure.

This could lead to delayed GA meetings like their previous fiscal year.

Win Streak slows down As speculations on JCPoA future rise!
In the Market
The capital market seventh-session winning streak slowed down as market participants speculations get hotter on the future of a JCPoA with EU. The TEDPIX finished with a slim gain of 0.04% while the IFEX ended higher by 0.41%.
Tehran Stock Exchange’s darling, the auto sector (-2.38%), finally backed down from its irrational recent hikes. It seems that the speculative trades in the sector subsided finally and investors came to their senses. The orange giant, Siapa Co. (SIPA1, -3.36%) changed hands for almost 42 mn shares and stamped 27.92 negative points on the overall index. Except a few, almost all other tickers of the sector ended the day far below their flat lines. Concerns over the future of foreign deals cloud the sector while the companies’ financial status is not helping at all.
The heavily-weighted Metals sector (+0.32%) foresaw balanced trades. The blue chips left little changed while some tickers with higher potential ended the day in green. Khuzestan Steel Co. (FKHZ1, +1.28%) lifted the total index by 24.99 points while names like Isfahan Mubaraka Steel (FOLD1, -0.07%) ended near their falt lines.
In general, market needs a better motive, like a rise in USD/IRR rate or even slightly higher inflation to overcome the current recessed trades.
