April is a make or break month for the future of Greece. Will the May 1st bank holiday be the day deposits are raided by the EU?

The big Putin – Tsipras meeting in Moscow kicks off what looks to be a historic April month for Greece.

The May 1 bank holiday may very well be the day Greece announces its exit from the Eurozone, or just as likely its submission to Germany…for which the bank holiday makes for a nice “Cyprus style” depositor haircut, in what would be Brussels’ biggest bank robbery to date.
