The strong rise that started in the local bourse on Wednesday continued on Thursday, with most stocks recording significant gains in the last session before the Easter holidays. Therefore the weekly losses were contained to just 0.18 percent compared with Friday, April 11.

The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index closed at 1,248.61 points, adding 2.51 percent to Wednesday’s 1,218 points. The large-cap FTSE/ATHEX 25 expanded 2.65 percent to 401.83 points.
