    A wave of profit taking by domestic institutional investors pushed equity prices lower on the Athens Stock Exchange on Tuesday and the general index below the 3,150 support level.

    Traders said a decline in foreing capital inflows paved the way to domestic investors to take early profits.

    Analysts said the market would find support at the 3,110-3,120 levels in the short term.

    The general index ended at 3,147.35 points, off 0.99 percent, with turnover a low 154.31 million euros, or 52.58 billion drachmas.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks ended 1.06 percent lower at 1,853.02 points, and the FTSE/ASE 40 index dropped 1.28 percent to 356.28 points.
