Euro Saved by Greece Bail Package?

EU leaders have reached an agreement to help Greece with a package of €22 billion.  The country, with a vast deficit which is eating on the euro currency has, in the past months, been at the centre of EU debates.

While the currency exchange market was speculating on Greece’s future and that of some other Eurozone countries, the euro took enormous pressure.  Indeed, there were even record amounts of euro -selling from international investors, enough to make a few EU leaders call for an end to over-selling and the damage that speculation can do.

Now, Greece will receive a boost to fix its problems, but is it enough?  Currency investors certainly seemed to be mollified by the news as the euro rose by around half a cent on the news against the US dollar and by nearly half a penny against the pound.
