it has broad implications for the world financial markets and for investors. live for us now, ashley webster from athens at the very latest. what is the latest there. reporter: good morning to you, sandra. just after made day in athens and for all intents and purposes it's a normal workday. let's be honest, it is anything but normal. all banks across greece are closed and the most anyone can take at a 60 euros. a daily limit of 60 euros is about 66 u.s. dollars a day. i would point out tourists are growing on foreign banks said they can take out as much money as they want. things will be closed at least the next six days. the athens stock exchange closed today and for the rest of the week. by the way, we assume online from atms but not today. anyone who needed to get cash
knew what was coming and hats. i was told that maybe 40% of atms right now actually have any cash anyway. i tried to get cash out of a couple atms and never shut down not working anyway. the big question is what happens next. the next big event due to the international monetary fund tomorrow ride about $1.8 billion increase this of the money to make the payment. technically default. there is going to be some last-minute scrambling here. we understand the european commission may have another offer for the greek leaders to consider. we will keep an eye not that the meantime meantime the clock is ticking and the prime minister tsipras is calling for composure and patients, both of which is asked in a tall order. they are running out, sandra. sandra: what does the future look like for alexis tsipras at
this point? we are waiting for a news conference later today. what is the feeling on the ground about his future in the country? reporter: well, he's taken a huge gamble. he's been a strange thing by asking the great people to say yes or no to wallop the antiauthority measures demanded by the european creditors. he asked for the referendum and has been campaigning against the same great people should vote no. the latest polls suggest the great people will say gas, which brings about the question of his political future. if greece says we will take the assertive measures multiparty and tsipras has been campaigning against measures, will put his political future in jeopardy, do it then face the prospect of great collections. it's a huge gamble, neither side blinking. he still has other people who say he represents the pride of
race, but others who say we want to stay in the eurozone and this is plain that their future. we don't want to imagine what it would be like outside the eurozone. sandra: ashley, nicole petallides here. 40% of the banks of that cash when he tried again a 60 euro. medicine running outcome of food on the shelves. are you seeing that kind of worry building at? reporter: now, it sounds like panic on the streets. not at all. the areas that we've been just full of tourists. the day don't have -- there's not a sense of panic that goal. almost a sense of resignation after he concerned about the future and their money of course. they have to pay bills. they have to buy gas. they have to buy food. there is certainly that concern but they are waiting to see what happens in a bonus that confers
the referendum next sunday which they believe is whether to stay in the eurozone are not. the greek leaders say that is not the referendum. the great people as a whole say we can't live under these measures you are demanding. sandra: thanks. ashley webster will be live all i were in athens and all day on the fox news network. thank you so much. see you in a few minutes. financial turmoil increased battle in global markets. first look at shanghai. this has been a rapid decline. it has fallen more than 3% in the latest trading session. this comes after beijing cut interest rates. the shanghai is officially in bear market territory, meaning it sold 20% from its recent highs. the rest of asia also started up the week lower with declines across the board. drops in the nikkei, hang seng and singapore index.

a lot of positioning time ahead of this event at the weekend and it seems the liquidity is perhaps too early to say that the market is panicking. it is quite possible to europe has moved the backend for riskier assets into core european assets. even so, the bungee is against the market that is not panicking yet. this is a very fluid situation and certainly boost the markets in europe today certainly have been chunky. laura: this is transfixed in new york. we had some issue at the start of trading this morning. have you seen any of that?
