Greece’s stock market will remain closed on Tuesday and Wednesday after a bank holiday was extended.

The alternative market of the Athens Exchange will also stay shut, Alexandra Grispou, spokeswoman for the exchange operator, said in e-mailed comments. Equity trading in the debt-ridden country has been suspended since June 29 after the government closed banks and imposed capital controls.
