Meekal Ahmed | 13 years ago | Reply The market will remain volatile as long as the Greek issue (and the problems in the Euro area generally) is not calmed. No one knows for sure whether the multi-billion dollar rescue package for Greece will hold or not. Maybe Greece should call in its creditors and restructure its debts rather than pretend they can pay them. Why shouldn't the banks take a hair-cut for imprudent lending?
