Markets resilient despite Greek vote

Global stock markets proved resilient on Tuesday, despite Greece’s shock rejection of the terms of an international bailout.

Japan’s Nikkei index opened up 1.25%.

US, European and other Asian stock markets mainly fell on Monday, but the market reaction was much more muted than analysts had expected.

In the US, the main indexes all closed down about 0.3%, while London’s FTSE 100 slipped 0.76%.

The euro rebounded from Monday’s one week low, to $1.1045 against the dollar, but slipped 0.7% against the pound to 70.8 pence.
