FTSE/Athex Large Cap
OTE telecom was the protagonist in Wednesday's bourse session following the issue of its 2019 financial results that showed a rise in profits, leading to 2.32 percent growth for its stock while accounting for over two-fifths of all of the day's trading. That helped the benchmark at Athinon Avenue record its first day of gains this week.
Stocks in the Greek bourse were once again swayed by banks that dragged the market lower on Tuesday, accelerating the benchmark's decline toward the 900-point mark.
The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index ended at 911.82 points, shedding 0.86 percent from Monday's 919.77 points. The large-cap FTSE 25 index contracted 0.95 percent to 2,291.80 points.
The benchmark at Athinon Avenue proved unable to hold on to most of the gains it had recorded during the day on Wednesday, in line with the majority of other eurozone bourses. It presented a mixed picture at the end of the session, with rising stocks narrowly edging out the losers on a day when the bond market dominated investor interest.
