ATHEX: Index at level unseen since last February

The Greek bourse benchmark climbed on Friday to highs unseen since late February after its 11th consecutive day of gains, which were quite handsome too, on the day the third-quarter growth data were issued. Likewise, the Greek benchmark 10-year bond yield reached a new low on Friday, at 0.626 percentage points.

ATHEX: Fresh gains for bourse

The Greek bourse benchmark advanced for a 10th consecutive session on Thursday, a streak unseen in almost four years, as stocks are now extending November's momentum into December. The index recorded a new ninth-month high - and without the help of bank stocks this time.

The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index ended at 766.82 points, adding 0.97% to Wednesday's 759.47 points.

ATHEX: Benchmark adds 29.4% in November

November may have been the month of the second lockdown, but it was also the month of the Greek stock market, as its benchmark rebounded 29.4% over the period and the banks index recorded a rise of almost 70% on a monthly basis. Monday's session changed little in the month's statistics, although large trading volume was observed due to index rebalancing.

ATHEX: Index rises for the fourth week in a row

The Greek bourse benchmark climbed on Friday to highs unseen in almost nine months - i.e. throughout the time of the pandemic in Greece - boosted by aspirations for a strong recovery next year when the vaccines arrive. This was the fourth consecutive week of gains for the local market, which has recovered a large share of the losses incurred over the year.
