ATHEX: Fourth week of growth for benchmark

After a narrow trading session with very little movement for the benchmark and the blue chip index, the Greek stock market ended the week with another day of marginal gains on low turnover.

ATHEX: Piraeus bumps benchmark into the black

This helped the benchmark climb to a two-month high, even though that was on particularly low turnover.
