The benchmark of the Greek stock market closed lower on Thursday for the fifth session in a row, with sales of stocks in the credit sector weighing on blue chips and the main index.
The ASE GI ended up at 636.84 points, shedding 0.66% from Wednesday’s 641.07 points. The large-cap FTSE 25 index contracted 0.63% to 1,540.01 points, while FTSEM declined to 840.77 points losing 0.66% of its value. The banks index sank 2.17%, as Piraeus slumped 4.85%, National dropped 2.75%, Alpha parted with 1.99% and Eurobank lost 0.99%. Fourlis achieved a 4.33% rise and OPAP climbed 1.77%, while OTE telecom conceded 2.88%, Jumbo shrank 2.41% and Hellenic Petroleum gave up 1.85%.
In total 48 stocks posted gains, 47 endured losses and 21 closed unchanged.
Persistent low volumes in the domestic market coupled with investors’ risk-off mode weigh in ASE’s downturn over the past week. Furthermore, international markets picture reflects fears over a second pandemic wave making investor’s reluctant to equities.
As for today, we expect another volatile session with GI hovering around current levels.
