Bought Australian Dollars

Friday, May 10, 2013 - 9:55 AM
Dear Readers,

We've heard the crowing about the "destruction of US dollar" quite often around here.  But the US dollar has risen lately against the other currencies.

Bought a little of Australian Dollars, using exchange traded fund FXA today at 99.80 and will sell (if possible) at 102.79.  FXA currently gives 2.22% interest.

Dear Readers,

As I posted a little while ago US Dollar has continued its rise, which means the other currencies have declined.  I bought more FXA today at 96.81.  Will sell at 3% profit if possible.

On June 1, 2013, FXA is expected to do dividend distribution, so my "sell" orders will be adjusted accordingly.  The FXA's dividend distrubution history is available for free at link below:
