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.

ATHEX: Stock index drops to new 18-month low

After Thursday's respite, sellers returned to the Greek stock market in force on Friday, resulting in losses for all blue chips except one and the benchmark closing at its lowest point since March 2017.

The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index ended at 658.97 points, shedding 2.57 percent from Thursday's 676.36 points. On a weekly basis it declined 4.73 percent.

ATHEX: Most stocks stage recovery

The Greek stock market made a remarkable recovery on Tuesday with the benchmark ending up just below the 700-point mark. The recent selling spree at Athinon Avenue, the decline in Greek bond yields and the relative euphoria on foreign markets set the stage for a stock surge but the relatively poor trading volume didn't give it the power required to clear the psychologically important level.
