ATHEX: Investors skim gains made in previous days

After rising in early trade, Greek stocks headed lower on Monday - although not below the psychologically significant 700-point level - as investors banked profits following a series of northbound sessions. The market is also seen to be saving its liquidity for Greece's 10-year bond issue, as well as Aegean Air's corporate bond.
