The Prague PX-50 index rose 0.84% to 454.80 points on Friday in an otherwise quiet and low-volume session. Total daily volume reached USD 13.59 mil. The market lacked sizable orders and the direction was largely driven by major European indices. Only Ceska sporitelna gained, up 1.75% to 244.80, though there was no information on hand to explain the rise. We believe that today the market will open positively as locals are likely to take positions. However, we do not expect any major news flow this week on domestic or international markets.
