Greeks have rejected the Troika bailout proposal. The euro is down 1.5 cents in early trading and markets are sure to be roiled for days. BOJ's Kuroda speaks later but all the focus will remain on Greece.
The tally is nearly complete and shows 61.5% of Greeks voting 'No' in a solid rejection of another round of austerity and a massive win for PM Tsipras. Polls were much closer in the days ahead of the vote but fear about a Grexit failed to materialize and voters showed they were fed up with failed austerity programs.
