European stock indexes went down sharply during Monday sessions for a response to a resounding "No" from Greek voters in a referendum on austerity which could send the country crashing out of the Eurozone.
Euro STOXX index 600 fell around 1.05 percent, recording its lowest level since February.
Also, German DAX 30, French CAC 40 and Spanish IBEX 35 went down by 1.55 pct, 1.88 pct and 2.29 percent respectively.

The chances are that Greece will say goodbye to the single currency. They lack the means to stay. If they are forced out, the Athenians will go neither quietly nor with good grace. They will threaten to bring the edifice crashing down around them.
