Kathimerini English - - Focus -

The re­turn to nor­malcy for in­ter­na­tional mar­kets af­ter the re­cent tur­bu­lence has yet to be re­flected on the Greek bourse. Blue chips edged higher for one more day yes­ter­day, but there is no sign of the mo­men­tum that car­ried up­ward the stock mar­ket in May and June, hence de­clin­ing stocks out­num­bered win­ners.

The ATHEX gen­eral in­dex closed at 810.75 points, adding 0.58 per­cent to Mon­day’s 806.06 points. The large­cap FTSE-26 in­dex ex­panded 0.65 per­cent to 2,134.96 points, while mid-caps continued their slide, con­tract­ing 0.64 per­cent.

The banks’ in­dex ended its fours­es­sion de­cline to re­bound 1.45 per­cent, de­spite At­tica’s freefall (down 17.95 per­cent). Pi­raeus grew 2.94 per­cent, Eurobank grabbed 2.47 per­cent, Na­tional im­proved 1.85 per­cent and Al­pha inched up 0.50 per­cent.

Ti­tan Ce­ment and Jumbo led the other blue chips, in­creas­ing 2.39 per­cent and 2.21 per­cent re­spec­tively, as ADMIE fell 1.46 per­cent.

In to­tal 46 stocks posted gains, 49 suf­fered losses and 23 closed un­changed.

Turnover amounted to 52.5 mil­lion euros, up from Mon­day’s 37.1 mil­lion.

In Nicosia the gen­eral in­dex of the Cyprus Stock Ex­change slumped 1.12 per­cent to close at 75.21 points.
