    [03] ASE-close

    29/03/2001 16:24:55

    Equity prices ended lower on Thursday pushing the general index, temporarily, below the 3,000 technical support level, with the vast majority of investors, both private and institutional, remaining on the sidelines awaiting developments in international markets and results in an effort by Greek authorities to boost transparency in the market.

    Traders said prices fell because of lack of buying interest and not because of selling orders.

    The general index ended 1.22 percent lower at 3,013.42 points, off the day's lows of 2,996.97 points. Turnover was a low 279.644 million euros, or 95.288 billion drachmas, of which 96.490 million euros accounted for pre-agreed block trades.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks fell 1.22 percent to 1,734.10 points, and the FTSE/ASE 40 index dropped 1.39 percent to 366.18 points.

    The parallel market index for smaller capitalisation stocks ended at 330.15 points, off 0.74 percent.
