CEE Stock Exchange Report for September 19 – October 04

TECHNICAL NOTE: At the request of our readers, we've added the US S&P 500 (dashed line) and UK FTSE (dotted) to compare and contrast CEE stock performances. We added them to the main Index and broke them out separately below. In future versions, we will aim to emphasize the CEE versus non-CEE stock performance better. The idea here is that if a single CEE index performs different than it's peers, it's interesting to see if it moves with the rest of Europe (FTSE) and the world or on its own.

Over the past two weeks, the Slovakian SAX and the Czech PX are the two indices that have most clearly diverged from the remaining indices. The other CEE countries have followed a similar pattern to the US S&P (dashed line) and the UK FTSE (dotted line). The Romanian BET (yellow) did not dip as much as the rest of the indices and finished level for the two week period. The Hungarian BUX, Polish WIG 20, S&P 500, and the FTSE performed nearly identically while the Czech PX followed a loosely similar trend but finished much lower, down about two percent overall.


The Slovakian SAX is the only index to show a clear and persistent upward trend throughout for the second consecutive week. Up about 1.8% for the two weeks, the SAX is the only index to have increased in value over the period.
