    Greece crisis: Euro markets hit again
    What went wrong in Greece?

    An old drachma note and a euro note
    Greece's economic reforms that led to it abandoning the drachma in favour of the euro in 2002 made it easier for the country to borrow money.

    Greece went on a debt-funded spending spree, including high-profile projects such as the 2004 Athens Olympics, which went well over budget.

    It was hit by the downturn, which meant it had to spend more on benefits and received less in taxes. There were also doubts about the accuracy of its economic statistics.

    Greece's economic problems meant lenders started charging higher interest rates to lend it money and widespread tax evasion also hit the government's coffers.

    There have been demonstrations against the government's austerity measures to deal with its 300bn euro (£267bn) debt, such as cuts to public sector pay.

    European markets have continued to fall heavily amid speculation over the future of the Greek economy.

    Stocks in both Paris and Frankfurt were down by more than 2% on Wednesday morning, following the downgrading of Greece's debt to "junk" status.

    Spain's leading index is down 3.3%, while in Portugal, which has also suffered a downgrade, shares fell 4%.

    Meanwhile the euro fell to a fresh one-year low against the dollar as investors fear a spreading crisis.

    On Greece's stock market regulators have announced a ban on short-selling, following steep falls in bank shares.

    The ban is designed to prevent investors betting on falls in share prices - believed to undermine confidence in the market.

    The move also follows big falls in Asian markets on Wednesday.

    Japan's leading share index, the Nikkei 225, closed down more than 2.5% after steep falls in European stocks on Tuesday.

    Contagion fears

    Global shares have tumbled after the credit rating agency Standard and Poor's downgraded Greek debt to "junk" on Tuesday.

    That means the rating agency views Greece as a much riskier place to invest, and increases the interest rate investors will charge the Greek government for loans.

    On Wednesday, that interest rate hit 11.3% for 10-year Greek bonds - another all-time high for a eurozone country.

    The market is now looking at every country with a lot of curiosity

    Gilles Moec, senior European economist at Deutsche Bank

    There are concerns among some investors that the Greek crisis could spread to other vulnerable eurozone economies.

    "We have the makings of a market crisis here," said Neil Mackinnon, a global macro strategist at VTB Capital.

    On Tuesday, another debt-laden economy, Portugal, saw its credit rating downgraded by Standard & Poor's by two notches to A-.

    "The market is now looking at every country with a lot of curiosity," said Gilles Moec, senior European economist at Deutsche Bank.

    But he said other countries were not in the same dire straits as Greece.

    "Portugal is clearly the most fragile country after Greece, but even so there is quite a lot of distance between [the two countries]," he told the BBC.

    "The level of debt before the recession began was much higher in Greece. The immediate pressure on funding needs in Portugal is [therefore] not as dire."

    He added that investors now needed to see clarity in the plans to bail out the Greek economy.

    Proposed rescue

    Later on Wednesday, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will arrive in Berlin to urge German MPs to agree to a rescue deal, giving Greece billions of euros in loans.

    Dominique Strauss-Kahn will travel to Germany along with the president of the European Central Bank, Jean-Claude Trichet, facing politicians that have so far expressed their doubts over the bail-out.

    As Europe's largest economy, Germany's involvement in any rescue deal is crucial, while the government is wrestling with public and political opposition to a bail-out.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has insisted that Greece needs to show tougher measures to cut spending.

    "You have to economise, you have to become fair, you have to be honest; if not, nobody can help you," she warned on Tuesday.

    In Berlin, the BBC's correspondent Steve Rosenberg said senior politicians were still insisting it was "too early to say" whether a rescue deal would be agreed.

    According to Simon Derrick, from Bank of New York Mellon, time is now running out for Greece to secure a deal.

    "The message that has been emerging from the markets this week is that a resolution to the Greek crisis needs to be found in the next few days," he said, warning that delays risk "sparking contagion through southern Europe".

    On Tuesday, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy announced a meeting of eurozone heads of state and government would be held on 10 May to discuss the Greek crisis.

    He insisted negotiations on the aid were "well on track" and that there was "no question about restructuring" Greek debt.

    Greece also needs to secure at least some funding by mid-May, when it is due to repay investors around 8.5bn euros of debt.

    There is significant opposition to the handling of the crisis in Greece itself, with some demonstrators calling for the country to default on its debts so that foreign banks would pay the price for the crisis.
