Upbeat Finish for the first day of the last Week!
In the Market
Tehran Stock Exchange start the first day of the last working week before the new year on a positive note, in what was a quiet and fairly range-bound session. The TEPIX advanced 0.05%, breaking the recent losing streak, while the IFEX declined -0.09%.
The Banking sector (+1.08%) struggled for much of the session, keeping its gain in check, with Saderat Bank (BSDR1, +4.90%, IRR 535) showing particular strength; the doomed bank compensate for a tiny part of its previous huge lost and traded for more than 377 mn shares. Bank Mellat (BMLT1, +3.38%, IRR 979) also ended the day in good green and record the most positive points on the main index.
In the heavy weighted Chemical sector (+0.08), rather balanced trades were seen. Jam Petrochemical (PJMZ1, -1.05%, IRR 10,175) led the negative trend and stamped -26 points on the index while others like Parsian Oil & Gas (PASN1, +1.27%, IRR 2,317) and Zagros Petrochemical (PZGZ1, +0.85%, IRR 32,672) made balance to the industry trades.
Finally, the relative weakness in the mid-weighted Auto sector (-1.69%) steepened the previous performance of the industry, pushing it to back off again. It is safe to say that almost all of the important tickers ended the day in red and only the tiny one or two were successful to finish in the green.
