Tehran Stock Exchange
The Tehran Exchange Market's value has increased steadily in current year despite U.S.-led sanctions on Iran's economy.
While the stock markets of the Middle East and North Africa region saw a very poor year in 2012, Tehran Stock Exchange experienced an unprecedented growth, leading the financial markets of the region.
Sanctions against Iran have done nothing to dent a boom in its stock market, as investors bet on a continued rise in company stocks which have been undervalued for years.
The index has now posted a very high jump since March 20, when it reached 12,537 points on the last day of the Iranian year.
