This morning I wrote that Cyprus's banks would remain closed until Thursday.
It seems that I was wrong.
The New York Times reports that the banks will now in fact remain closed until Friday, or maybe even beyond Friday!
Proof positive that there is a run on the banks in Cyprus.
Vladimir Putin is not best pleased with this and has described the state sponsored theft as "unfair, unprofessional and dangerous".
Russia has $60 billion exposure to Cyprus, which will be withdrawn once the levy is imposed. Thus, in one fell swoop this "plan" will destroy the Cypriot banking system
Meanwhile the ECB and Germany are falling over each other to wash their hands of having played any part in this clusterfuck even though the Cypriots claim that the "plan" was imposed on them.
This will not end well
