Greek stocks open higher, banks still losing

Shares in Greece's National Bank and Eurobank rebounded sharply in early trading on Thursday, bucking three days of losses that saw the banking-stock sector decline around 63 percent.

NBG, Greece's largest bank, was up 8.8 percent, and Eurobank gained 7.7 percent.
