Markets jittery as leftist election victory stokes concerns of instability throughout Europec

The euro skidded to an 11-year low and stock prices fell on Monday as Greece's leftist Syriza party promised to roll back austerity measures after sweeping to victory in a snap election, putting Athens on a collision course with international lenders.

The euro fell to an 11-year low of $1.1098 on the vote outcome before recovering to $1.1186, still down 0.2 percent from last week.
