The banks index declined 0.75%, as National was up 4.15% and National earned 0.05%, while Alpha gave up 0.60% and Piraeus declined 1.47%.

Mytilineos soared 5.90%, Terna Energy grew 5.46%, Jumbo jumped 5.23% and GEK Terna climbed 3.06%, as Motor Oil lost 2.55% and Public Power Corporation dropped 2.29%
