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: Fresh gains for bourse

The Greek bourse benchmark advanced for a 10th consecutive session on Thursday, a streak unseen in almost four years, as stocks are now extending November's momentum into December. The index recorded a new ninth-month high - and without the help of bank stocks this time.

The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index ended at 766.82 points, adding 0.97% to Wednesday's 759.47 points.

ATHEX: Index rises for the fourth week in a row

The Greek bourse benchmark climbed on Friday to highs unseen in almost nine months - i.e. throughout the time of the pandemic in Greece - boosted by aspirations for a strong recovery next year when the vaccines arrive. This was the fourth consecutive week of gains for the local market, which has recovered a large share of the losses incurred over the year.
