The analysts interviewed by MTI said share prices could continue rising on the BSE on Wednesday as long as the optimistic mood remains on global share markets as well. Zsolt Balasy of Concorde Securities believes the positive sentiment continues on global markets, thus, the BSE could try breaking through some key price levels such as OTP's HUF 5,400 price level.
Szabolcs Kun of QUAESTOR said he expected the optimism on Asian markets to influence European trading. He said the markets could primarily be moved by global sentiment, particularly corporate flash reports. (MTI-ECONEWS)
