Greece will cut debt burdens down further to 110% by 2022, while EU and IMF policymakers agreed to trim interest rates on Greek loans, extend their maturity by 15-30 years, and grant the country a 10-year interest repayment deferral. Greece is set to avoid default.

  The dollar gains against the major global currencies on Monday as investors parked in the safe-haven greenback waiting to see if Eurozone and IMF will work out a deal to help Greece. The IMF, EU finance ministers and officials from the European Central Bank are due to meet on Monday to discuss freeing up pending aid for Greece. European governments support giving Greece a two-year extension to cut the country's debt to 120% of GDP by 2022, a proposal at which the IMF has balked. Investors hope that all sides strike a deal and free up aid earmarked for Athens, though until such an announcement becomes public, the dollar will be the safe-heaven.
