Greece Market Opening to Send a Positive Signal

Greece’s main stock market, the Athens Stock Exchange, is expected to open again at some point this week, marking – it’s hoped – a return to relative normality for the troubled Mediterranean country.

“The reopening of the market would no doubt also send a positive signal as regards the slow return to at least some semblance of normality in Greece,” currency analysts at Rabobank wrote in a research note.

Late Tuesday, the Greek securities regulator announced that it would decide early on Wednesday on a date for reopening – which could be as early or Wednesday or Thursday, Reuters reported.
