Kathimerini English - - I N T E Rv I E W -

The Greek bourse con­tin­ued ris­ing yes­ter­day, al­beit at a much slower pace due to in­vestors ex­er­cis­ing cau­tion ahead of the re­sults of Athens’s ne­go­ti­a­tions with its cred­i­tors and Fitch’s credit rat­ing re­port.

The Athens Ex­change (ATHEX) gen­eral in­dex reached 959.85 points, adding 0.54 per­cent to Wed­nes­day’s 954.69 points. The large-cap FTSE/ATHEX 25 in­dex ex­panded 0.52 per­cent to 310.20 points.

While banks headed lower (down 0.11 per­cent), other blue chips recorded a sig­nif­i­cant rise, such as El­lak­tor (up 9.43 per­cent), GEK Terna (4.42 per­cent) and Vio­halco (3.18 per­cent). Hel­lenic Ex­changes fell 1.86 per­cent.

In to­tal 60 stocks posted gains, 48 took losses and 26 stayed put.

Turnover amounted to 74 mil­lion euros, down from Wed­nes­day’s 89.7 mil­lion.
