ATHEX: Mixed picture at the bourse


Having already factored in a positive outcome in last night’s Eurogroup, the Greek bourse produced little excitement on Thursday with stocks split between winners and losers.

The large-cap FTSE 25 index contracted 0.28 percent to 2,121.99 points and banks slipped 0.47 percent, while mid-caps were up 0.48 percent.

In total 46 stocks climbed, 45 declined and 27 stayed put.

Turnover reached 73.4 million euros, down from Wednesday’s 114 million.

The general index of the Cyprus Stock Exchange in Nicosia advanced 0.22 percent to 76.03 points.
