    Inflation fears, the lift of interest rates by the ECB and shaky world markets weighted on all local indexes last week but SOFIX (605.20) slipped the most by losing 1% WoW. Overall liquidity remained far away from the average one YTD and the market was losing buying power under the negative sentiment and panic sell-offs. It is of note that BSE’s index committee announced last week the new rebalancing of the local indexes which also imposed selling pressure on several companies. For a second consecutive week we saw Sirma Group Holding (SGH, BGN 0.845, +5.0%) among the top 3 gainers and after a successful completion of EUR 28m deal in August, it was announced that the company will join SOFIX in the next few weeks.
