With the European Financial Stability Facility set to increase to $1.4 trillion, it marks a significant move forward to strengthen the safety net in place for Europe's most troubled countries. Private bondholders of Greek debt are settling at a 50% haircut as another $180 billion in fresh aid is set to arrive, enabling banks to recapitalize at a healthy 9% reserve. Overall, these measures will bring Greece's debt burden down to 120% of GDP by 2020. An important consideration is political commitment to this road map. Currently the global community appears to be on point with ECB's initiative, an outlook that should be sufficient to support markets around current levels.
