Czech market finished flat after mixed trading session with volumes boosted by Zentiva as international accounts became active in the afternoon. Internationals were active also in CEZ and TEF O2 CR. Although CEZ ticked slightly lower, foreign accounts expressed interest in the title. CME once again rallied after recent news of Lauder and Apax partnership. Bank titles diverged when Erste jumped on closing arbitrage gap while Komercni banka dropped in sympathy with other regional peers.
