    The Big Cap index eased 0.50 pct, the Mid Cap index ended 0.36 pct lower and the Small Cap index ended 0.45 pct down. PPC (3.89 pct), Viohalco (1.19 pct) and National Bank (1.16 pct) were top gainers among blue chip stocks, while Marfin Popular Bank (6.0 pct), Cyprus (4.94 pct) and Motor Oil (4.39 pct) were top losers.

    The Financial Services (3.5 pct), Industrial Products (0.64 pct) and Technology (0.48 pct) scored gains, while Health (3.77 pct), Chemicals (2.77 pct) and financial Services (2.63 pct) suffered the heaviest percentage losses of the day.

    Broadly, decliners led advancers by 80 to 48 with another 49 issues unchanged. G.E. Demetriou (16.67 pct), MIG Real Estate (10 pct) and Pegasus (9.09 pct) were top gainers, while TBank (20 pct), Unibios (16.67 pct) and Imperio (15.79 pct) were top losers.
