Dear member, 

The Euro summit has ended with signing a a comprehensive package, already third this year. The main points: 1. Haircuts for Greece have been agreed, 2. Recapitalisation of the bank to 9% of Core Tier 1 Capital, 3. Firepower of EFSF (European Financial Stability Fund ) has been increased, 4 Some of the core Governance principles for the Euro have been introduced. 
The near term main consequences of the package will probably be that the banks will have to further deleverage which will lead to more weak growth figures. The Euro zone is already nearing another recession and the balancing act is becoming more difficult especially when much bigger problems such as in Italy are on the horizon.

Earlier this week we've asked you to answer our 1 minute poll and the response was really great and revealing. If you did not take the poll please go ahead and do it right now by clicking on the following link: This is an anonymous survey - your contact information will not be revealed to us.

By the way if you got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
