  2. Few people should hedge 'because they expect the currency they hold to drop in value' as this video presents. FX predictions are worthless. This video is an example. When the Loonie was at 96 cents EVERYONE was predicting a fall to 90. This always happens. The currency goes the opposite way. It is now 98 cents.

    You hedge all the time because you DON'T know where the FX is going. And because the timing of your buy/sell for a specific security will be determined by its own performance, not its FX performance.

    The warning about high costs is ridiculous. An increase of 15% of a 0.05% ETF fee is only 0.0075%. DIY hedging using futures contracts cost $5 per $100,000. Read http://www.retailinvestor.org/hedge.html
