Greece and international creditors seek to put final touches to a multi-billion euro bailout accord on Monday to keep the country financially stable and meet an important debt repayment to the European Central Bank within days. Germany implements “strict” conditions for future aid and stated it would be sensible to link the size of the first portion to Greece’s progress in executing its reforms, a reflection of worry around the euro zone that Athens might not do as promised. Coming to a agreement would be the end of the grim chapter on bailout talks for Greece, which argued against austerity terms, stated by creditors for much of the year before agreeing to a deal under the threat of being tossed out of the Eurozone. With that being said, this has had a minimal affect on the U.S economy particularly in the small cap sector of the market.
