Usually, investors are looking for higher returns and focus of investors on markets with higher returns may reduce returns of this kind of markets in the long run. This can be named as returns convergence of different asset markets. This study aims to also examine the returns convergence of dollar, euro, coins, housing and stock markets in Iran over the period 2002:05-2016:02, using Nahar and Inder method and convergence Measurement of each market`s returns to the average returns of them.
