Positive day in European stock markets, after a week of complications. In Lisbon it was also like this: the PSI-20 closes in high, with CTT firing 5% and BCP catching its breath.

The Lisbon Stock Exchange closed this Friday’s session on positive ground, with a lift from CTT, Pharol and BCP, three of the securities that were under the greatest pressure during the week.

The PSI-20, the main Portuguese index, added 0.57% to 4,934.28 points, with nine quoted to close above the water line. The best performance belonged to the shares of CTT, which shot 5.54% to 2.056 euros. Also Pharol registered significant gains of 3.81% to close at 0.109 euros. And the BCP, after rising 5% yesterday, has regained ground in this session, closing up from 2.22% to 0.1884 euros.

These three titles were among the most penalized during the week, and now end up catching some breath.
