The Lisbon benchmark index, PSI20 ended Wednesday’s trading in the black with gains by banks helping it to climb 0.30% to 4,844.82 points.

The Portuguese Stock Market Regulator (CMVM) suspended trading in Banco BPI as it is waiting for the bank to disclose “relevant information” to the market according to a communiqué released this morning.
