Greece plans to issue bonds next week for the first time in three years, according to news reports. Rumors had circulated that the country would make a return to debt markets early this week.

Since the weekend, the country’s bond prices have risen as investors hope the proceeds will strengthen Greece’s finances.

The European Commission approved a €5.4 billion ($6.1 billion) state bailout of Italy’s Monte dei Paschi bank on Tuesday, allowing the Italian government to recapitalize and restructure the troubled lender.

The European Union’s executive arm said in a statement that it had approved the capital injection into Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA, or MPS, under the bloc’s state aid and bank resolution rules after the lender agreed to undergo a drastic restructuring.
Germany's financial hub, Frankfurt, is trying to attract its share of the Brexit-driven banker exodus from London by appealing to "risk takers" working in the financial sector. The UK is widely expected to lose financial passporting rights after its EU exit, which would represent a huge blow to its financial services industry. The EU's passporting rules allow businesses to sell services across the union from anywhere within it and only require companies to be regulated in one country, rather than everywhere they operate.
China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), is working on a prototype of a cryptocurrency that it could end up in circulation in the near future. Hovewer, there is currently no timetable for this, and the bank seems to be proceeding cautiously. It would be introduced alongside the China’s primary currency the renminbi.
