ATHEX: Benchmark sees minor gains

The main index of the Greek bourse stopped its southward course on Thursday - but only just - in a mixed session with low trading volume and the majority of stocks (including banks) heading lower.

The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index ended at 728.76 points, adding 0.17 percent to Wednesday's 727.53 points.

Many investors cashed in last week's gains on Monday, while turnover fell to the lowest point since November 28. Some losses were expected following the spending spree observed in previous sessions, although the unexpected shrinking of growth in the third quarter deepened the impact, while the market had already factored in the staff-level agreement with the country's creditors.
