Stocks in Asia sold off sharply today, as Greece's inability to reach an agreement with its international creditors -- just ahead of the country's Tuesday deadline to repay an International Monetary Fund (IMF) loan -- overshadowed a bigger-than-expected interest rate cut from the People's Bank of China. Specifically, the Shanghai Composite fell 3.3%, putting it in bear-market territory. Meanwhile, Japan's Nikkei plunged 2.9% on a round of mixed data -- including a wider-than-anticipated fall in industrial production  -- and a stronger yen. Meanwhile, Hong Kong's Hang Seng and South Korea's Kospi gave back 2.6% and 1.4%, respectively.

European equities are getting hit by the aforementioned Greek crisis, amid news that the country's banks will not open this week -- which is weighing on financial stocks throughout the eurozone. Meanwhile, trading in Athens will remain shuttered until July 6, one day after a scheduled referendum on Greece's bailout deal. At last check, London's FTSE 100 is off 1.8%, France's CAC 40 is down 3.6%, and the German DAX has given back 3.1%.
