That's OK if you think it's good to hold Euros right now: I want as few Euros as possible in present circumstances but I'll need some soon for day to day spending and will probably use GBP to get them if the €/GBP rate stays around or better than today's rate. I'd be slightly tempted to acquire a few USD to hold for a year or three. That said I want as little as possible in Greek banks in any currency.
I've found that on most occasions I get the best FX rates from XE.com whom I've used for years. (Don't rush, they've stopped taking new clients bas ed in Greece).
Gold & silver prices has moved up quite sharply in the last couple of days, too: gold about $52 per oz. just now and silver up 7.5% on the week.
