Kathimerini English - - Focus -

The Greek stock mar­ket’s bench­mark opened the week with mi­nor losses af­ter six con­sec­u­tive ses­sions of growth adding up to 3.88 per­cent, yet mid-caps were on the rise so that win­ners out­num­bered losers.

The Athens Ex­change (ATHEX) gen­eral in­dex ended at 659.33 points, shed­ding 0.15 per­cent from Thurs­day’s 660.30-point clos­ing. The large­cap FTSE 25 in­dex de­clined 0.24 per­cent to close at 1,769.74 points, but mid-caps ex­panded 1.99 per­cent.

Banks con­ceded 1.15 per­cent, with Al­pha drop­ping 1.51 per­cent, Pi­raeus de­creas­ing 0.93 per­cent and Eurobank shrink­ing 0.90 per­cent. This was the last ATHEX ses­sion for Bank of Cyprus (up 2.53 per­cent), which is now delisted from the Greek bourse and ap­pears only in the Lon­don Ex­change.

Vio­halco gained 5.07 per­cent and Lamda Devel­op­ment im­proved 3.84 per­cent, while Jumbo lost 2.74 per­cent.

In to­tal 59 stocks moved up, 44 went down and 24 stayed put.
