Apparently still in holiday mode, the Greek stock market had a mixed performance on Wednesday, with very thin trading, minor gains for the benchmark, robust growth for banks and a high number of losers - almost on a par with gainers. Traders appear reserved ahead of decisions on Greece expected from the International Monetary Fund.
