Banks dropped 1.01 percent, with Alpha losing 1.72 percent and National 1.18 percent, while Eurobank grabbed 0.51 percent.

Jumbo lost 2.48 percent and Viohalco decreased 2.17 percent while GEK Terna grew 1.11 percent.

In total 26 stocks enjoyed gains, 61 suffered losses and 24 stayed put.

Turnover amounted to just 22 million euros, down from last Thursday’s 28.4 million.

The Cyprus Stock Exchange remained closed on Tuesday and reopens on Wednesday after the Easter holidays.
