The General Index in Athens Stock Exchange (ASE) closed at 844.80, posting marginal losses of 0.06%, in a turnover of €36.28mn.

The Eurozone finance ministers agreed on a formula to reduce Greek debt to 124% of GDP by 2020. The agreement means that Greece will receive €34.4bn by the end of the year – €23.8bn is to complete the recapitalization of Greek banks – but the remainder of the bailout loans (€9.3bn) it was expecting next month will be paid in three tranches at the beginning of next year. The ministers agreed to cut the interest rate on official loans, extend their maturity by 15 years to 30 years and grant Athens a 10-year interest repayment deferral. They promised to hand back €11bn in profits accruing to their national central banks from ECB purchases of discounted Greek government bonds in the secondary market. They also agreed to finance Greece to buy back its own bonds from private investors at what officials said was a target cost of around 35 cents in the euro.

The trade deficit for the first nine months fell 21.6% to €10.05bn. The imports fell 8.7% to €22.5bn, while exports rose by 5.3% to €12.45bn.
