The Greek stock market managed to hang on to its morning gains and bring an end to its six-day losing streak yesterday, with the benchmark ending the session near its day high. However, low turnover and the general weakness in investor moves suggested that Wednesday's rise was merely technical rather than anything substantial.
Thursday's drop at the Athens stock exchange (ATHEX) was quite tame compared to losses recorded in most other European markets - and considering the slide in Greek bond prices.
The ATHEX general index ended at 652.04 points, shedding 0.74 percent from Wednesday's 656.92 points. The large-cap FTSE-25 index contracted 0.92 percent to 1,705.11 points.
