    [03] ASE opening: Decline

    Equity prices were declining at the opening of trade on Wednesday on the Athens Stock Exchange (ASE), with the basic share price index down 1.05 percent, standing at 1,563.22 points at 11:30 am, and turnover at 34.068 million euros.

    Individual sector indices were moving downward nearly across the board, with the only gains in Insurance, up 1.61 percent; Public Utilities, up 0.28 percent; and Financial Services, up 0.23 percent.

    The biggest losses were in Personal Products, down 3.10 percent; and Mass Media, down 2.09 percent.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavily traded stocks was down 1.00 percent, the FTSE/ASE MID 40 index was down 1.00 percent, and the FTSE/ASE-80 small cap index was down 1.27 percent.

    Of the stocks traded, 12 were up, 67 were down, and 9 were unchanged.
