  • [01] Athens Stock Exchange opening: stocks moving up

    21/08/2002 12:19:56

    Equities were rising at the opening of trading Wednesday on the Athens Stock Exchange, after an initially hesitant start.

    The general share price index was up 0.36 per cent half an hour into the session, standing at 2,183.13 points, with turnover at 7.08 million euros.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavily traded stocks was up 0.75 percent, the FTSE/ASE MID 40 index was up 0.48 percent, and the FTSE/ASE SmallCap 80 index was up 0.31 percent.

    Of the stocks moved, 134 were up, 45 were down and 64 were unchanged.
