Iranian Rial Climbs 10 Percent as Hopes Grow Over New President

The Iranian currency, the rial, rose further on Thursday on hopes the country’s deep economic crisis could ease under its next president, a relative moderate elected last week.
The rial has strengthened by nearly 10 percent against the dollar since Hassan Rowhani was declared winner of the June 14 vote, according to Iranian currency dealers and websites. The rial was trading at around 33,300 per dollar compared with about 36,300 at the close of business a week ago.
