Greek stocks saw another day of lackluster trade on Wednesday even though the vast majority of foreign markets registered gains. The benchmark remained below the 800-point mark for a third consecutive session, with a clear split between banking and non-banking blue chips, which headed in opposite directions.
The benchmark of the Greek stock market suffered a considerable slide of more than 2 percent on Friday and the banks index gave up the last of its gains registered since the start of the year, mainly on international concerns regarding the trade war US President Donald Trump is attempting to wage against Europe.
Tuesday's late rally, which allowed the benchmark at the Greek stock market to recover from the losses recorded earlier in the day, was not enough to change the color on the board - which remained predominantly red - as losing stocks outnumbered the gainers by a ratio of almost two to one. Turnover remained disappointingly low.
