Last week Greece got a four-month reprieve on its bailout plan, but the risks that nation presents to the Eurozone and global markets remain.

So it's a good time to review how investors should play the Greek debt crisis.

"From chaos comes opportunity," Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald said in a Tuesday appearance on CNBC Asia's "Street Signs.

What the Greek Debt Crisis Means for Markets and Your Money

Greek debt crisis

All eyes are on Greek debt crisis this week, and rightfully so.

The country lied to get into the European Union, managed its finances terribly during its membership, and now wants to renege on its obligations. I'm not surprised and chances are you aren't either. We've been talking about the fallacy of central banking and the dangers associated with derivatives trading for years.

Now we need to talk about what happens next and, of course, what the Greek debt crisis means for your money...

Yet another Greek tragedy is playing out in economically distressed southern Europe.

Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras failed to win support for his presidential candidate.

As the European Central Bank (ECB) top brass battle it out on quantitative easing, the stakes couldn't be higher.

Europe's at the precipice of deflation, despite European Central Bank President Mario Draghi attempting to do "whatever it takes" to avoid that fate.

But dissent at the highest levels could quickly change the winds of investment in Europe.

The problems are getting deeper as three of the European Central Bank's board members are throwing a wrench into his plans.

In addition, the interest rate on its marginal lending facility was reduced by 10 basis points to 0.30% and the interest rate on its deposit facility was reduced by 10 basis points as well to -0.20%.
