Can equities continue good run?

Investors will be looking to see whether the Athens bourse can make it five in a row today after moving higher for the last four sessions. On Friday, the bourse’s benchmark general index ended at 1,484.13 points, racking up losses of nearly 1 percent for the week, despite the positive run. Investors will be keeping an eye out for any news on Greece’s fiscal problems as representatives from the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund visit Athens today. They are expected to assess progress made by the Greek government in meeting its budget targets after they recently agreed to provide Greece with a bailout plan.
