Canadastock.ca is commited to providing quality stock data and analysis to Canadian investors and those living abroad.

 

Currency ETFs are a way to play the Forex market in ETF format.

Most currency ETFs are a bet that the currency that they are traded in will outperform or underperform a specific currency or basket of currency. For example, a Canadian dollar denominated TSX traded currency ETF that is bullish on the US dollar would see a return - hopefully - relative to the movement of the CAN/USD index.

There are, most likely some ETFs that track one currency versus another regardless of the trade currency. This would work in a similar way to the above scenario, but by coverting currencies in the process.

3As with most other classes of ETFs, there are leveraged 2x and 3x ETFs for trading currencies. As always indicated, Canadastock.ca does not recommend that you explore these dangerous options. Some are listed in this space, but not recommended.
