But stronger employment, consumer spending and housing data in the U.S. supported markets mid-way through the quarter. However, with Greece defaulting on their €1.5 billion payment to the IMF and the last minute referendum that would impact their membership in the Euro, the last days of June ended a bumpy quarter in a dramatic fashion.
