ATHEX: Benchmark slips further below 900 points

The Greek stock market slipped further on Thursday, following Wednesday’s decline, in a session that started with buyers reacting to the previous day’s drop with selective moves and ended with sellers having the upper hand, with all indexes ending in the red. However, there is no clear trend in favor of a stock drop at this stage, so a rebound is likely due.

The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index closed at 883.28 points, shedding 0.43% from Wednesday’s 887.09 points. 

The large-cap FTSE-25 index contracted 0.40%, to end at 2,141.64 points.

The banks index conceded 0.73%, as National parted with 1.57%, Alpha gave up 1.23% and Piraeus slipped 0.15%, while Eurobank advanced 0.14%.

Viohalco sank 2.11% and Ellaktor fell 2.01%, whereas Quest Holdings collected 1.74% and ElvalHalcor expanded 1.23%.

In total 37 stocks recorded gains, 83 suffered losses and 16 remained unchanged.

Turnover amounted to 56.6 million euros, down from Wednesday’s €93.8 million. 

In Nicosia, the general index of the Cyprus Stock Exchange increased 0.09% to close at 77.12 points.
