ATHEX: Minor gains extend rally of benchmark

The Greek stock market managed on Tuesday to maintain the gains its had secured on Monday and added some more for its benchmark, which climbed to yet another 13-year record high, even though the mid-cap index and the majority of stocks headed south. The local bourse continues to show resilience and is expected to continue down the same path for the next few weeks at least.

ATHEX: Imported pressure on stocks

The US inflation data shook European markets, including Greece's, which suffered losses in its indexes and the majority of stocks on Tuesday. This was the third straight session of losses for the benchmark, after it hit a 13-year high last week. Turnover was boosted by the inclusion of Athens International Airport in the FTSE indexes.

ATHEX: Third week of growth for bourse

The benchmark of the Greek stock market came off Thursday's 13-year-high to record moderate losses on Friday at the end of another week of price growth, the third in succession. The continued rise of foreign bourses, including Wall Street, has helped. As of Monday the main index at Athinon Avenue will incorporate Athens International Airport.

ATHEX: The party continues at the stock market

The sixth consecutive session of gains at the Greek stock market brought the benchmark not only to another 13-year high, but also above the 1,400-point mark, on significantly increased daily turnover too. All this was before the entry of the 300 million shares of Athens International Airport, which is scheduled for Wednesday.
