    Greece's big, fat dive may spell trouble
    Its a sleepy summer market and for want of any bigger impetus prices are to-ing and fro-ing in response to the Greek bourse's reopening plunge and Canada's snap election. These are hardly top-line events but the combination of low liquidity and holidaying traders means they could incite volatility in the week ahead.

Market participants hope that heavy rainfall will boost the economy and stocks.
