Brexit impact on Greece seen limited – Bank of Greece sources
Britain’s vote to exit the European Union will have a limited impact on the Greek economy, central bank officials said on Friday.

Greek stocks nosedived on Friday, losing more than 12 percent, with bank shares underperforming with a plunge of 28 percent. Greek two-year bond yields jumped more than 240 basis points to 10.3 percent.
