Non-bank­ing blue chips added sig­nif­i­cant gains to the lo­cal bourse yes­ter­day, al­though over the course of the week the bench­mark in­dex reg­is­tered a de­cline of 6.79 per­cent.

The Athens Ex­change (ATHEX) gen­eral in­dex closed at 919.11 points, grow­ing 2.50 per­cent from Thurs­day’s 896.68 points. The large-cap FTSE/ATHEX-25 in­dex ex­panded 2.31 per­cent to 309.97 points.

Ob­servers stress that given up­com­ing po­lit­i­cal and cor­po­rate de­vel­op­ments, next week will be a par­tic­u­larly busy pe­riod for the mar­ket, with a meet­ing of the three coali­tion part­ners on Mon­day and the end to the trad­ing of the buy­back war­rants of Pi­raeus and At­tica Bank on Tues­day.

In to­tal, 109 stocks posted gains, 47 reg­is­tered losses and 20 re­mained un­changed. Turnover came to just 47.4 mil­lion eu­ros.
