According to Pierre, they are requesting five days notice to withdraw 2000 euro.” –MarkHi Mark,
This has been going on for some time. I dont think it means there’s an imminent corralito but it is one of those signs that show the possibility of one or at the very least, it’s a sign of fear of bank runs.
Europe in general is in bad shape though some countries areworse than others. The banking sysistem being strongly linked, I still advice caution no matter where you are.
