People celebrate in Athens on July 5, 2015 after the exit-polls of the Greek referendum showed over 60% of Greeks rejected further austerity dictated by the country's EU-IMF creditors in a referendumAthens (AFP) - 09:23 GMT - Eurosceptics rejoice - The resounding "No" from Greece on Sunday in a vote ostensibily about more austerity, but seen by many as a vote on Greek sovereignty over European Union diktat, has been seized upon by eurosceptic politicians. It's fantastic to see the courage of the Greek people in the face of political and economic bullying from Brussels," tweeted Nigel Farage, the head of Britain's UK Independence Party, which wants Britain out of the EU. 09:19 GMT - The pension question - Greece's generous state pension system was at the heart of fraught talks between Athens and its creditors, who argued that the public pension system is simply too expensive and unsustainable.

In an extraordinary weekend of policy moves, brokerages and fund managers vowed to buy massive amounts of stocks, helped by China's state-backed margin finance company, which in turn would be aided by a direct line of liquidity from the central bank.
