Iran: Retail investors lured by stock market gain

Financial Tribune – With stocks delivering good winter runs after heavy losses in late autumn, retail investors are being lured back into the market days after Tehran’s main bourse was about to sound the alarm.

Individual investors are pumping more money into brokerage accounts after the Tehran Stock Exchange surged close to 2% at Sunday’s session – thanks in large part to institutional players.

Meanwhile Donyay-e-Bourse, a stock analytical website, reported that battered share prices along with good prospects for companies’ nine-monthly reports ( due to be released soon), is encouraging more people to buy shares.
