BELGRADE (Serbia), December 2 (SeeNews) – Serbian share indices extended their modest gains on Wednesday in falling turnover, stock exchange data showed.
The Belgrade bourse's blue-chip BELEX15 index ticked up 0.06% to 716.39 points after rising 5.1% on Tuesday.
The broader BELEXline index edged up 0.68% to 1,371.74 points on Wednesday after advancing 3.5% in the previous trading session.
The joint SRX index of the bourses in Belgrade and Vienna slid 0.76% to 316.06 on Wednesday.
The bourse's total turnover fell to 16.5 million dinars ($259,984 /172,724 euro) from 101.7 million dinars on Tuesday and 175.5 million dinars on Monday.
“The large volumes posted over the past few days were mainly the result of pre-agreed trading on behalf of AIK Banka shareholders. The turnover was not an upshot of a large number of companies that were being traded. Today’s volumes are more realistic of the situation,” Zoran Grubacic, head of the Beo Monet brokerage, told SeeNews over the phone.
Blue chip Agrobanka fell 2.57% to 8,849 dinars in the session's highest turnover of 16.1 million dinars.
