ETF in IRA question

    Are there any long dollar ETFs that are country-specific rather than versus a basket of other currencies. I know there are several Rydex ETFs (FXA, FXE) but theya re long the non-US currency. Yes, you could short -- but not in an IRA. And the puts are too short-dated (no Leaps) to buy and you can't sell naked calls on an ETF in and IRA -- just to head off suggestions.

    Are these not baskets of currency vs. the dollar, which I specifically said I was not looking for? I am looking for currency-specific, as in the dollar-sterling; dollar-euro. But the ability to be long dollar without shorting the instrument. Not a complicated question.
