The dollar is sharply higher across the board, as the Greek drama has reached levels where more waiting is unsustainable: the Greek banks are really running out of cash, despite the capital controls imposed last week. Last night, in an emergency meeting between German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, and French President, François Hollande, Athens was given 24 hours to offer a new plan to get its economy in order and avoid full collapse. In the meantime, Alexis Tsipras has made public his contact with Russian President, Vladimir Putin, and their discussion on how the relationship between both countries will develop from here, in an attempt to put further pressure over the institutions to lower their demands. Despite the resignation of former FM Yanis Varoufakis, and his replacement with a more conservative politician, Euclid Tsakalotos, the European authorities are pretty disappointed with the developments of the negotiations until now, and the call for the referendum, and most are ready to call "game over" on Greece.
