Kathimerini English - - Focus -

Greek stocks painted a mixed pic­ture yesterday, as Na­tional Bank’s gains were not enough to bring the bench­mark into the green as it had done on Wed­nes­day.

The Athens Ex­change (ATHEX) gen­eral in­dex closed at 678.05 points, shed­ding 0.30 per­cent from Wed­nes­day’s 680.10 points. The large-cap FTSE 25 in­dex con­tracted 0.40 per­cent to end at 200.73 points.

Na­tional added 8.30 per­cent, but other banks gave ground, with Pi­raeus fall­ing 9.88 per­cent and Al­pha drop­ping 6.96 per­cent.

In to­tal 47 stocks ad­vanced, 38 de­clined and 14 stayed put. Turnover reached 37.2 mil­lion eu­ros, down from Wed­nes­day’s 61.5 mil­lion.
