Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis gives a press conference during a Eurogroup meeting at the EU headquarters in Brussels, on June 27, 2015Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Monday sacrificed his finance minister in a gesture aimed at placating eurozone creditors, which must now decide whether to loan more money to the debt-wracked country or prepare for a "Grexit". A day after the Greeks said a resounding "No" to further austerity measures in return for bailout funds in a crunch referendum, finance minister Yanis Varoufakis said he was stepping down immediately and at Tsipras's request. The euro had tumbled as much as 1.6 percent in electronic trading immediately on the 61-percent 'No' result from the referendum, but recovered after Varoufakis's shock resignation to $1.1086, just 0.25 percent lower.
