There are some ETFs that might get you in on the action..but outside having a Forex account, you are limited in choices.

Greece... Then Portugal... Then Italy... Then Spain..  Debt fears are contagious.  We'll see where this goes, but  it seem to be pretty well contained in Europe.....   Unlike our credit-fueled ponzi scheme that infected the entire world.

Their currency is the "Zloty" and has the symbol PLN if you wanted to check it out.

Their currency has been in the crapper since Sept 2008, it has gone from near US 2.10 to 2.95 or so recently, so the USD has gone UP in value versus the Zloty over the last two years or so.

in 100 years people will be amazed that 16 countries used a mutual currency, actually the amazing thing its taken this long for there to be a crisis.
