    [03] Stocks end sharply lower

    Greek stocks came under strong pressure during the first trading session of the week at the Athens Stock Exchange on Monday, hit by a negative climate in other European markets. The composite index of the market dropped 2.58 pct to end at 1,218.88 points, with turnover soaring to 473.913 million euros, boosted by the transfer of a 10 pct equity stake of OTE to Deutsche Telekom.

    The Big Cap index dropped 3.48 pct, the Mid Cap index fell 2.62 pct and the Small Cap index ended 3.77 pct lower.
