Euro tailing a bit. I never envisioned the day I would be trading Greek election polls. Here’s a chart plotting recent Greek polls.

  1. Is there any fair value target with the currencies right now as far as expectations of what is needed to return to the correct purchasing power?

  2. Haiz…greece really sucks!!!

  3. I don’t know the numbers mike but we’re not that far off on any of the majors. But currencies regularly diverge from PPP by 30%.

  4. there is no peace for euro…

  5. Adam, I’m sure you know that all of these polls, last night’s, today’s, are within the margin of error. This is one giant crap shoot, and a big reason EUR/USD can’t get out of its own way. Until we get really *clear* numbers, outside any margin of error, people should discount these polls, because it’s just an invitation to whipsaw.

  6. I agree entirely Lance. I don’t even see anyone publishing the margin of error but obviously it’s pretty damn high with in the span of three days Syriza goes from 20% to 30%. But, to be honest, I don’t care what the market should be doing. It is what it is.

  7. HMR, that’s brilliant.

  8. Adam, the market is what it is for sure. Cheers.

  9. Ricky…
    You know what i want Ricky?
    I want for Greece to be totally isolated ,without the IMF ,World Bank ,WTO sucking her natural resources (as they did in every country they attacked) ,while seeing all of you sadistic petty humanoids get your butts kicked when the global crisis hits ,since the problem is the 1000 Trillion toxic debt the banks hold with only 70 Trillion true world output and not Greece or any other country in the south….
    We are not your money laundering machine….
    We should have gone out 2 years ago ,and leave the banks go down ,or pass their toxic wastes from other countries….
    Parasitic scums….
