Do you want to leave your deposit in that Italian bank and maybe you'll end up with Lira and you don't know what the exchange rate is going to be, or will you want to move it maybe to a German bank in Germany? ... I can imagine a lot of fluctuations in the markets as new particular events hit the front page."
