The PX-50 index dropped 4.01% in yesterday's trading. During the day, we saw large amounts of stock from retail accounts as well as domestic institutional investors hitting the market. As a result, there was an intraday weakness exceeding 5% in most of the stocks. Traded volume reached above-average levels. Most of the SPAD stock recorded losses exceeding 10% over the last 3 sessions. We continue to believe that the weakness of the market is neither country- nor stock-specific; rather it seems that the market is falling in sympathy with sentiment on GEMs. As for the outlook, we believe the market has found itself in a trendless territory and it will become a pure traders' market with typical high intraday volatility on lack of news. Many of the locals believe that some of the stocks are already oversold and even though we may see a bounce into positive territory in coming days, we remain careful as markets rather tend to surprise the consensus and when no one expects a further weakness, another major move down may be ahead. Volume in the SPAD system reached EUR 90.8m on Monday.
