Greece’s stock market fell sharply on Monday after being shut down for five weeks under capital controls imposed by the government in Athens to stop a flight of euros from the country.

The main index was down nearly 23 percent in early trading. National Bank of Greece, the country’s largest commercial bank, was down 30 percent, the daily limit.

Trading could be suspended once again today if the initial losses continue.
