I only know that it shouldn't go much below 1.2000.  Swiss bank intervening.  Not much action, we'll see if the bank keeps their word.

It already has dropped pretty far. My company's budget projections for 2012 had the Euro at $1.45. How significantly are you talking.

I'm having a friend do this trade for me.  Who didn't have the best go at it with forex.  Sports betting would probably be easier.

you run the risk of having your book shut down though.  kind of scary these days.

Gambling seems dead.  Making money in poker is pretty much dead.

Sorry, I was very slow on this one. Forgot about the travel thread and the cc thread. Thought you had some puts or calls riding on a strong $. Instead, you have an expensive or cheap EU trip riding on a strong $. (At least that is what I think you were referring to, correct?)

Have you ever been to Singapore?  I wonder if their lines on american sports just follow vegas lines.

confirmed, though at this point it's just food and drink so it doesn't really matter.  just talking to talk.

Have, but do not know.  Did play some shady poker there.  Games were not dead.

we should set up shop there (you) and vegas (me) and just play line differences if they don't shadow each other.

I am ready for another good week in the market. This week sucked. I think yesterday, aside from Chevron making me $3.00, everything else I owned declined in value. I don't really own that much of anything, but I'd just like to stop seeing so much red ink next to what I do own.

Budget projections were made last July. I think it was worth ~$1.40 at the time. My company may be some kind of Fake Sugar Dick (WARNING, NOT THE REAL SUGAR DICK!), but it is a very large company with all sorts of crap that you probably use every day and don't even realize that the company I work for is involved in any of that. The $ gaining strength makes the piece of business I work in look better, so I am pleased with budget projections at $1.45 and the $ actually looking much stronger than that right now.

how much would your company like to pay me to provide them with much more accurate euro projections?  i can go 12 months out and update monthly.
