- Greek stocks and bonds fell on Monday after the government in Athens failed to bridge differences with European creditors over the conditions attached to the country’s latest bailout review and the International Monetary Fund warned that its debt is on an unsustainable path. Almost two-thirds of the actions creditors have demanded for the disbursement of the next tranche of emergency loans have yet to be completed, the government conceded in a memo discussed between Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos and bailout auditors last week in Brussels, a person familiar with the matter said. Greek stocks fell 3.5 percent to their lowest since Dec. 15 at the close in Athens, while yields on 10 year-notes rose 48 basis points to 7.66 percent, amid renewed doubts about the prospects for completing the review before national elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany later this year.

Greek stocks fell the most among western-European markets on concern over the country’s bailout payment.
