ATHEX: Index ends losing streak on thin trade

Investors finally put an end to the Greek bourse benchmark's nine-session slide on Monday. The rise was led by bank and utility stocks, while mid-caps continued their descent. Trading volume was particularly low.

The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index closed at 790.05 points, adding 0.55 percent to Friday's 785.72 points.

ATHEX: Late action sees turnover top 100 mln

A notable 55 percent of Friday's bourse turnover was recorded during the closing auctions on account of the rebalancing of the FTSE indices that affected the stocks of Mytilineos, Sarantis and Viohalco, at the end of another week of losses for the benchmark at Athinon Avenue. Still, mid- and small-caps advanced on the day, meaning the majority of stocks posted gains at the end of trade.
