The banks index rebounded 0.23%, as Eurobank earned 1.06%, National grabbed 0.56% and Alpha edged up 0.04%, while Piraeus gave up 1.73%.

Sarantis conceded 3.57%, Ellaktor parted with 2.63%, Lamda Development lost 1.43% and OTE telecom declined 1.23%, whereas EYDAP improved 0.89% and Coca-Cola HBC rose 0.56%.
