ATHEX: NBG leads stock market index lower

Thursday offered investors another bank-centered decline for stocks, which came with a drop in turnover too. The benchmark at Athinon Avenue took significant losses and even closed at the day's low, pointing to a trend for a further drop on Friday morning at least. Observers say the market is waiting for the sale of blue chip Terna Energy to unleash some liquidity.

ATHEX: Index losses offset by closing bell

Stocks at Athinon Avenue offset the early post-election losses on Monday to keep the benchmark in the black by the closing, even though the majority closed in the red. Banks - led by Eurobank - had a positive day and contributed significantly to the recovery of the main and blue chip indexes, though turnover left a lot to be desired.

ATHEX: Second day of decline for stocks

The Athens bourse on Wednesday remained on the downward course it started on Tuesday, coming off Monday's 13-year highs.

Trading was dominated by the share packages of the Mytilineos group (just over 5% of its shares ahead of its London listing to come) that sent turnover soaring on the day.
