conditions. it is still a very difficult situation for greece. this is an economy in dire straits. they just released the latest manufacturing numbers than a shrink i the steepest amount in two years. they also have a $3.5 billion bond payment to the ecb to july 20th. that is why they asked for the $29 billion bailout late last night and this letter basically a confession makes the greek government realize there's no way out unless the country and its financial system just collapses. we've also had questions about the referendum on july 5th. the athens bar association released a statement saying it just not constitutional. the question is not clear. it's not been handled properly. what happens to the july 5th referendum and if the creditors suppose it didn't make a moot point anyway. all the great people are able to

>> they are giving it the fact on the 13th hour. of course with some changes of course i doubt at this stage the year is on the imf will be prepared to make those changes. why should they. the pressure is now on greece to fall into line even more so than over the past two weeks. the words of course if you get the reaction rapidly move in the other direction. sandra: chris, we're looking at the markets in europe. the stock market is surging to the outside. also looking at the currency markets globally. the euro currency has strengthened quite considerably on this news. what market reaction are you watching? reporter: would send the euro moving up against the pound.
people still can't work out whether the greek accent is about the work at him. that's been the problem the last few days in this case is to be made on either side. mostly unchanged in fx has been the dog that hasn't barked over the two weeks or so. i think it's one worth watching over the next week or so if we really get to negotiate if indeed that takes place. sandra: what does that tell you come in the factory should the euro currency, much higher immediately on the report that alexis tsipras is caving in on bailout terms. it is now down the u.s. dollar up against the pound as you noted. the currency markets interpreting the same way the stock market is because we still look at pretty significant gains for the stock market this morning in europe and the united states. reporter: exactly. the currency markets react quickly.

is actually open today to allow people to get them to get ahold of their cash but the senior citizen to to get access to pensions. i should point out that about 45% of greece's 2.6 million retirees are existing on about $738 a month or less. by the standards set by the ecb, they are living below the poverty line. any more reforms to pensions that would require further cuts is seen as undoable by a large percentage of those people trying to access. i think that could be a sticking point for the negotiation although it appears mr. tsipras is giving up almost everything. pension reform has been in that letter obtained by the "financial times" there is not
one reference to the july 5th referendum. maybe that is starting to go away. sandra: quick recap. markets surge in europe and in the united states ahead of the opening bell. the "financial times" reported that this letter the prime minister to the creditors since late tuesday night and show won't they a handful of minor changes. according to this report. initially markets surging to hide on the fact greece is conceding. but then they go into the second spot about what the actual changes, despite changes may be limiting the optimism as we continue to follow this story. he'll stay with us. more on this greece story as it unfolds. stay right there.
