Week 9-15/2/2020: Τhe ten years bond and the celebrations’ logo


On Wednesday 12/2 the Greek 10 years bond yield fell below 1% for the first time. Despite the fact that this reflects wider trends in the money markets this period, the reach of this milestone is particularly important and shows that markets now have a more positive attitude towards Greek economy. At the same time, the public mostly discussed the new logo of the “Greece 2021” committee-the body that is tasked with organizing the celebration of the bicentennial of the Greek war of independence. From the critics’ point of view, the logo failed to incorporate symbols that traditionally refer to the war of independence and the greek state.
