But Sony Kapoor, MD of Re-Define, an economic think tank, says the unprecedented level of detail contained in the stress tests will be a "real punch" that'll lead to a roller coaster few days.

"The next few days are likely to deliver a roller coaster ride as the new information contained in the stress tests is digested and everyone waits for EU policy makers to make up their mind on Greece."
"The bank-sovereign links that the stress tests reveal means that the pressure to sort out the Euro crisis and put in place a good bank resolution framework will increase sharply."
