    [03] Greek stocks continue falling, ASE finds support at 1,700

    Greek stocks continued their negative record-breaking course for one more session in the Athens Stock Exchange on Wednesday pushing the general index close to the 1,700 support level.

    The index ended 0.57 percent lower at 1,727.09 points, off the day's lows of 1,704.71 points as a wave of buying focusing on Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation's shares partly reversed the trend.

    National Bank's shares suffered heavily, losing 4.70 percent of their value.

    The Holding and Telecommunications sectors were the only ones to score gains (1.07 percent and 1.02 percent, respectively), while the Textile, Publication and Bank sectors suffered the heaviest percentage losses of the day (2.96 percent, 2.47 percent and 2.30 percent).

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks fell 0.93 percent, the FTSE/ASE MID 40 index dropped 1.49 percent and the FTSE/ASE SmallCap 80 index ended 1.53 percent lower.

    Turnover was a low 76.2 million euros. Broadly, decliners led adnvers by 238 to 70 with another 46 issues unchanged.
