Slovakia's SAX stock exchange index suffered a significant fall at the beginning of the year, tumbling 37.54 points to 229.43 points, the SITA newswire wrote.

Share prices of VÚB Banka slid 1.25 percent to €63.20. On January 4 and 5, the SAX index stagnated at 266.97, but lost 36.75 points on January 7.
