There is a very real possibility that Greece may leave both the Euro and the EU before the end of 2011. Moreover, if Greece does retreat from the EU and Euro the ramifications will be felt throughout the world for some time to come.

The ups and downs of the currency markets have been quite difficult to keep track of in recent months. The global turmoil seems to be reaching fever pitch at times, and at the end of September the pound was worth 1.5580 against the US dollar.
