Eurozone breakup expectations wane further


Investor expectations of a eurozone breakup dropped to their lowest level in nine months in August as fears of a Greek exit from the bloc faded thanks to an agreement on a third bailout, Germany’s Sentix research group said on Tuesday.

The likelihood of the eurozone breaking up fell to 17.2 percent in August from 26.5 percent in July, according to a survey of 981 individual and institutional investors conducted between August 27 and 29.
