Monday, December 23 12:39:10
The ISEQ headed lower this morning, though trading volumes were very low with the Christmas and New Year period about to start.
By 12:30, the ISEQ was down 14.02 points at 4,478.88.
The end of year trading period will be upon us for the next ten days, with Christmas and then New Years holidays set to disrupt normal trading patterns, as we get a host of market holidays and early closures. Therefore, we can expect reduced trading volumes and with it some possible market volatility, AIB Treasury's Morning Comment noted.
