Kathimerini English - - Focus -

Try as it might, the lo­cal bourse bench­mark failed again yes­ter­day to get a toe­hold on the 650-point level, end­ing the ses­sion with a mi­nor drop, although ris­ing stocks out­num­bered the losers.

The Athens Ex­change (ATHEX) gen­eral in­dex closed at 648.85 points, shed­ding 0.07 per­cent from Wed­nes­day’s 649.31 points. The large-cap FTSE 25 in­dex con­tracted 0.26 per­cent to 1,728.06 points, while the banks in­dex inched up 0.05 per­cent.

In to­tal 57 stocks rose, 53 shrank and 23 stayed put. Turnover reached 32.1 mil­lion eu­ros, down from Wed­nes­day’s 44.3 mil­lion.
