In the Market
Equities experienced a volatile session started with bullish trend yet ended beneath the major averages flatlines. TEDPIX (-0.88%) fell for almost 1,700 points in a session mostly driven by emotions. IFEX (-0.41%) witnessed the exact thing but with smaller force.
The H1 reports of listed tickers are the thing dominating the trades these days and in a day or two, the final position of companies will be revealed in terms of performance. Today’s fall was mostly because of tickers of the Banking (-4.53%) sector. After the other night’s performance report of Mellat Bank (BMLT, -8.13%) stating that the currency translation effects will be announced later (this is something inevitable), a wave of rookie investors sat in the buy queue caused 289.69 negative points on the index. The situation spread virally for all other tickers despite the fact that their H1 reports were high above the expectations.
Elsewhere and in the medium weighted Oil Products (-2.26%), the general market sentiment caused an early sell-off, however, once the news of calculating their feedstock prices based on the NIMA FX rate came out, the sale pressure was somehow lifted and trades got back in their right course.
In general, expert participants anticipating very good performance reports by fundamentally sounded tickers and considering the fact that tomorrow is the last deadline, the market will find its trend from after.
