The PX index stepped into 2009 in a positive mood, catching up with a good US performance. (204 CZK, 15,79%) shined with its 17% gain as bargain hunters tried to pick up oversold stocks. Volumes remained thin though. CEZ broke CZK 830 level right after the open but gave up some CZK as international accounts reduced its position. 55% of the total turnover went through CEZ, (77 CZK, 4,13%) saw also some buying interest, the rest was rather quiet.
