ATHEX: Index cedes more than 1%

ATHEX: Stocks break three-day losing streak

After heading south in the previous three sessions, Greek stocks in Athens reversed course on Wednesday, with most ending up in the black and the benchmark reclaiming the 800-point level it had lost on Tuesday.

ATHEX: Bourse hits highest level in 11 months

The Greek bourse hit the ground running on the first trading day of 2021 on Monday, with prices growing as the session progressed and the closing auctions taking the benchmark above 820 points for the first time in almost 11 months. This time it was mainly energy stocks and other non-bank blue chips that led the index higher.

ATHEX: Brexit deal, vaccination boost stocks

The Brussels-London agreement over a trade deal and the start of the vaccination process gave the Greek stock market another boost too on Monday, with the benchmark easily clearing the 800-point bar to reach highs unseen in 10 months. As the year draws to a close, the losses observed in 2020 are gradually being reclaimed.

ATHEX: Ellaktor leads benchmark to more gains

The benchmark of the Greek stock market reverted to its northbound course on Wednesday, but once again it ducked back below the 800-point mark before the close, after testing the waters during the session. It will probably take one more final push for the index to reach that level, and with tomorrow seeing the last triple-witching session of the year, anything is possible.
