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.
