September 24 (SeeNews) - The Bulgarian Stock Exchange blue-chip SOFIX index closed 0.12% lower at 572.20 points on Tuesday, largely due to a decrease in the share price of tourist resort operator Albena [BUL:6AB] and car battery maker Monbat [BUL:5MB].
Albena erased 3.70% to a closing price of 41.6 levs on Tuesday. The trading session saw a single deal in Albena shares, worth just 374 levs.

Albena shares could have potentially been hurt by British travel company Thomas Cook's collapse announced over the weekend. The British giant carries some 350,000-450,000 tourists to the Bulgarian seaside annually, according to tourism ministry data.
The other major decliner on Tuesday was battery maker Monbat, which saw a 3.08% decrease in its share price, to 6.30 levs.
The wider BGBX40 index, which tracks the 40 most traded shares on the Sofia bourse, rose 0.11% to 112.75 points, while the BGTR30 index, in which companies with a free float of at least 10% have equal weight, dipped 0.06% to 503.55 points.
Zarneni Hrani Bulgaria [BUL:T43] supported the rise of the BGBX40, while Albena and Monbat led decliners among members of the BGTR30.
The BGREIT index, which tracks the performance of real estate investment trusts, closed 0.10% higher at 126.74 points, backed by a 0.52% rise in the share price of Advance Terrafund REIT [BUL:6A6].
Total regulated market trading turnover amounted to some 224,000 levs on Tuesday, sharply down from 2.6 million levs in the preceding trading session.
