Iran Central Bank Governor Mahmoud Bahmani urged Iranians not be influenced by the psychological atmosphere that has resulted in a recent increase in the dollar’s value, Shargh reported.
Fluctuations in the market are mostly due to psychological factors connected to political events and are not related to changes in the supply and demand of the U.S. currency inside Iran, Bahmani said, according to the Tehran-based newspaper.
The dollar’s value has risen this month, selling over the past week for about 19,000 rials on the open market, the report said. The dollar was sold on the open market for 19,210 rials yesterday, it said.
