Likelihood of euro zone breakup at nine-month low in August - Germany's Sentix

BERLIN (Reuters) - Investor expectations of a euro zone breakup dropped to their lowest level in nine months in August as fears about a Greek exit from the bloc faded thanks to an agreement on a third bailout, Germany’s Sentix research group said on Tuesday.

The likelihood of the euro zone breaking up fell to 17.2 percent in August from 26.5 percent in July, according to a survey of 981 individual and institutional investors conducted between August 27 and 29.
