Banks lead second day of stock gains

The general index closed at 634.97 points, up 1.37% and very near the intraday high of 635.41.

This gain may have limited the losses of previous sessions but the fact remains that the index has been confined within a narrow band above 600 points over the last few months at a time when other markets have thrived, despite the pandemic. Athens remains a disappointing performer.

ATHEX gains, but trade is very thin

he Athens Stock Exchange finally aligned itself with the positive turn on the European markets Tuesday, as it rebounded from Monday's significant losses to close 1.47% higher.

This rebound was achieved on very low turnover, which dropped below €30 million, a clear indication of investors' reluctance to see an upside.

ATHEX: Bourse ends week with 4.7% advance

The rally of bank stocks at Athinon Avenue on Friday added to the week's gains for the benchmark of the market, while mid-caps had a day of moderate gains given that foreign investors appear to be largely ignoring them.
