Tehran Stock Exchange stops near 1,000,000 points

Financial Tribune – While it was 2% shy of moving past the psychological 1,000,000 points, Tehran stocks slipped on Tuesday as sell-off pressure swept through a broad range of shares.

The benchmark of Tehran Stock Exchange, TEDPIX, closed regular trading hours in negative territory to buck a bullish trend that had dominated the market for 20 sessions in a row.

However, the TSE closed Tuesday’s trade in the green after remarkable gains in shares of the recently listed Social Security Investment Company in after-hours trading.
