Mid-Long term US dollar diversification

Discussion in 'Forex' started by minitrade, Jul 9, 2007.

  1. I'd like to start a thread for suggestions of methods and accounts to park liquid cash in non-USD holdings. I'm talking more about capital preservation, diversification of assets rather than short term trading. For example, a 3-24 month timeframe.

    I'm particularly interested in the objectives of hedging against US dollar weakness and inflation. Anyone is welcome to post but I'm most interested in methods US citizens can use.

    In case it isn't clear, I'm not asking for strategies or opinions on where to place money, but if you want to share your views you're welcome to do so here. I'm looking for help on the mechanics (where/who) of allocating funds in non-USD since not all banks will accept US customers. I have used everbank in the past and wasn't too happy with them.

    Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated, funds, banks, bonds, CDs, commodities, etc.

    Please post your suggestions.
