Live Greek Election Poll Tracker

Tyler Durden's picture

With the only real catalyst on the horizon not due for nearly one month - that would be the Greek elections of June 17 which while presented as the make or break event for the Eurozone, we believe will be once again inconclusive, resulting in no actual government, but merely more elections down the road - here is the daily sequence of events of what we can expect: i) Europe releases definitive rumor that everyone is preparing for a Greek exit full of bombastic jargon and details of how Greece will be annihilated if it does exit the EMU; ii) immediate election polls are taken; iii) if "anti-memorandum" Syriza support is not materially lower, rumor is promptly withdrawn for the day, only to be unleashed the next day with even more bombastic end of world adjectives describing the 9th circle of hell Greece will enter unless the Greek people vote "for" the pro-bailout parties, "for" the Euro, and "for" a perpetuation of the status quo; iv) Rinse; v) repeat. Which means one thing: just as the most actively watched live update on June 17 will be the Greek parliament seat map as voting is tallied, so each and every day from now until then, everyone's attention will be glued to daily update from Greek election polls.

Now courtesy of Reuters, we now have a handy, bookmarkable interactive chart for everyone's convenience to keep track of this data. And while we still believe the actual result will be meaningless, as a coalition government, either pro or against bailout, will be unformable, we are certain that the second we read that Syriza support is waning (one day, only to surge the next), the EUR, courtesy of its record short interest, and all related risk assets will soar. Keep a close eye on this chart.

Are you sure that is the chart for greek elections?  It looks an awful lot like the polyacrylamide electrophoresis gel for the human MPDZ gene associated with the propensity to borrow money to pay for booze.  Coincidence?

And I thought that was the dogshit synthesis gene. I got to brush up on my biology..

“If there is ever another war in Europe, it will come out of some damned silly thing in the Balkans.” Otto von Bismarck
caconhma's picture

Otto von Bismarck was a very smart man surrounded by the arrogant and stupid German aristocracy. It was then.

Now, once again Germany is looking for its own destruction by protecting and enforcing interests of the World Zionist Banking Mafia.

Germany prosperous future is not with its natural enemies the USA, England, and France but rather with Russia, China, and Japan.

Germany was always caught between France and Russia. Schlieffen Plan explains it best ( France and Russia, this is what Germans want to control, directly or indirectly.


That's also why Greece is so important for Germans. Russia's historical interests in Balkans are simple, Moscow claims to be the Third Rome (, Russians and Greeks share the same religion (


Watch Russia. If Russia involves in Greece, Germany goes panic button.

Chart looks like the ol' Frogger arcade game, particularly with the red near the other side.

Just wait until after the election it's going to look like Froggers Revenge

That was both oddly comforting and disconcerting at the same time.  Perhaps it is because I tend to like frogs and fire.

It would seem all that talk about Golden Dawn is just a scare tactic.

greyghost's picture

How biased if them to have picked black for Golden Dawn. Watch THAT bouncing ball.

A potential reversal is ahead for the EURUSD as price action flirts with the 10 year trend line.

... not to mention that the trade is just a wee bit one sided ...

ZH is turning into a distraction machine. 

Every other article is about Greece, which doesn't matter anywhere near the volume of coverage it's receiving.

I'm beginning to sense that Fraud Inc uses ZH.

A world where oil scarcity dictates the rate of civilization decline is not about trading.  It's about dying.

SYRIZA does not want to get out of the EU. It's only the Troika who say that Greece will leave if SYRIZA wins, and do we believe  the Troika? It is possible that the Troika are prepared for a Greek exit and will force one if SYRIZA wins, but I have doubts.

The differences between SYRIZA and the other two formerly majr parties is that the latter did not look out for Greece's interests, probably because they were susceptible to black mail. The old parties fudged statistics, and their hands were not clean. They just went along with what the Troika told them, preferring that the Greek people pay for their (the political leaders') mistakes. SYRIZA is a new party and will put Greece's interests first before that of the EU, which is what you would expect from a government. It will act as an advocate, but will not unilaterally decide to exit the euro.

MS7 you hit the nail on the head. The Europeans know all the dirty washing (financial, legal and personal) of the PASOK and New Democracy Party and it was the threat of releasing such information that made these parties sign anything put in front of them.

Have you ever imagine country with population no more than half Tokyo would hold hostage the 7 bilion World population. The Greeks have proff them self as liers, cheater and game players. Kik them out of not only EU but UN, OECD and every other organization. Those " living for free" parasite deserve stone age to reform their DNA.

What about Goldman Sachs who helped them fraudently enter the European Union? Can we give the squid some credit please?

WTF Gold Silver shooting down right now???

Anyone know why?

Kina's picture

China sent a request to Ben for more cheap gold.


These guys don't even bother to hide their corruption anymore, since it is an open secret the CFTC are simply bankster hookers.

JustObserving's picture

Preemptive action to prevent gold and silver from rising due to European crisis.  The dollar and US treasuries must remain the only choices for safety for the sheeple.  And, of course, the German 2 year note yielding all of 0%.

CrashisOptimistic's picture

Look, buddy, I know ZH is peopled with gold pumpers.  But for God's sake, at least be rational about it.

No one in governments care about gold going up or down.  There is widespread rampant deflation underway.  Have a look at house prices in your neighborhood.  That defines the matter and that's just the way it is and the way it always will be, given that oil won't allow any more growth.

The 10 year is at 1.73% because of deflation.  How could it be 1.73% if there were no deflation?  Ditto the German note at 0%.  Those are deflationary numbers in a profoundly clear way.

When you don't like data, you can't just throw it out.  Deflation reigns because oil forces it to reign.  If this is bad for gold, then gold is not the place to be.

Goldust's picture

Since when is the legitimate bursting of a bubble (housing) a "rational" example of deflation reigning?  Housing prices were pumped by easy credit, bankster greed, and idiot sheeple, and now they fall because the curtain was thrown back and the rot exposed.  Pick a different and more "rational" example next time...

Dr. Engali's picture

Good housing numbers = no qe to the robots.

Maybe JPM thinks that doing $7bn on one gamble wasn't enough and plan to lose another $7bn on metals when somebody calls their bluff and demands delivery of 25% of global annual supply.

frenchie's picture

why Golden Dawn is represented with black dots ?

Lebensphilosoph's picture

Why, because they are a black mark upon Greece due to their sentimental associations with murderous blackshirts who tried to hold back the champions of progress from bringing to Europe the glorious revolution of the proletariat, and most unlike the peaceful Maoists and Trotskyists who are represented by a bright red.

Lebensphilosoph's picture

This is what happens when one has universal suffrage and fails to teach an unbiased history of the 20th century in schools. The radical left weren't all that bad compared to these capitalist dogs, I mean evil fascists, I mean imperialist pigs, I mean dead white men, right? The people have voted have red, and red is what they will have.
