In the Market
Despite all the good news from Iran Economy on both domestic and foreign climates, equities took another step in the correction path on today’s session. TEDPIX plummeted for 1.91% to close the day at 129,013.76 level. IFEX did the same as well and ended at 1,479.23, -1.36% lower. Analysts believe that a short-term correction is what the market needs the most right now and today’s trades trend show that coming next days, the market will be in better position.
The super heavy-weighted Chemical (-4.11%) ended the day with a sizeable loss as investors had benefited from the sector the most. However, through the ending bell, supportive trades from big institutions came into play and most of the tickers closed just a bit lower below their flat lines. Parsian Oil and Gas (PASN, -8.41%) got back to the trading board after being halted for more than 20% advance on 5 consecutive sessions and considering the general market sentiment, it faced a massive sell-off. Persian Gulf Petrochemical (PKLJ, -2.84%) also gave out some of its recent gains and changed hands for almost 8.5 mn shares.
The situation over Metals (-1.40%) sector was somehow the same except for the fact that supportive trades from institutional investors were specifically stronger. Through the closing bell, most of the sector components reclaim a big chunk of their losses and some even end the day moderate green. Isfahan Steel Co. (ZOBZ, +4.09%) was the only ticker highly demanded from the beginning and closed mid-session due to a more than 20% advance in 5 consecutive sessions. Isfahan Mubaraka Seet (FOLD, -2.06%) started the day a bit rough on the other hand, yet managed to end it moderately lower than its previous session closing.
Finally and on the flip side, the recent bullish trend of Banking (+0.26) extended its gains today with Mellat Bank (BMLT, +4.54%) being the leader. The ticker started the day with more than 100 mn orders in buy queue, however, trades calmed down through the session end. Other big names of the sector could not hold to their gains and one by one trapped in a sell-off scheme which dominated the whole market today.
