Greek Bank Run Continues Unabated: €3.8 Billion In June Outflows Bring Total Deposit Base To Mid-2007 Levels

Tyler Durden's picture

Who could have possibly imagined that in the month of June, Greek banks would see yet another major deposit outflow. Alas, according to just released NBG data, June deposit outflows by households and corporates amounted to €3.8 billion, bringing the total down to just €188 billion. This is a whopping 20% decline in total Greek bank deposits since January 2010. It also means that each increasing outflow merely plants the seeds for even more outflows in the next month as less and less confidence (and cash) remains in Greek banks. As a reference, an equivalent outflow in the US, based on the total $8 trillion in total domestic deposits, would imply a $160 billion monthly outflow, enough to put two Bank of Americas out of business. We expect to see comparable data out of the Bank of Italy, and then all other pigs, as billions of euros are being pulled from deposit accounts in insolvent countries and deposits in Switzerland. Naturally, it also means that European efforts to quell the panic are failing abysmally.

The Greeks should outsource this data point to the BLS. Then we will see massive inflows.

Meanwhile a flurry of paper gold is being sold in order to corral the gold market and show all is fine with the fiat money system.  P.S. please drive the price down so I can get more physical at a discount with my bernanke bucks!!!!

Remember what Argentina did? Default, seized pension money, froze bank accounts to raise cash.....Yesterday the Greeks imposed no more short selling in the market. Defaults and freezing assets are a real possibility...In panic Govts will do whatever they want..

If I were a Drachma dude, I would have long ago taken all the cash out of the banks and liquidated assets to cash and gold.

I reality that is what a lot of people are doing all over, including myself..

Why does a bank need deposits or customers when you have a government to bail you out and pay your bonuses????

Iam_Silverman's picture

"Why does a bank need deposits"

To fund their prop trading desks?

Explains where the Euro's are migrating. If I got paid in Euros, and could buy 1 CHF for my 1 Euro, I would take that deal. In a heart beat;)
