EUR/USD is trading well below 1.20 in the wake of the new trading week. The common currency enjoys no mercy from soft German words about Greece, with the former wanting the latter to stay, nor from the narrowing of polls in the debt struck country.

The pair is down to 1.19 with very choppy trading.
