The general index of the Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB) yesterday took the steepest dive in the past nine months, i.e. 5.05 per cent, amid a record trading in excess of RON 100 M this year, Mediafax reports.

Brokers explained the loss by the evolution of the Bourse being correlated with the sharp downtrend on international capital markets, those in Asia and the United States, especially.

“On the stock exchanges in Asia and the United States, the slumps had some macroeconomic implications as well, yet, the relevant connection between our market and those markets is rather weak. In Bucharest, correlation with international bourses refers more to capital flows, and presently, the panic among investors takes on global proportions,” Iulin Panait, an analyst with KTD Invest, said, quoted by Mediafax.

The stock of 55 of the 60 companies listed on the BVB went down and five stagnated at the level of the previous trading session.
