How do DLR and DLR-U work? One bets on the US dollar, and the other bets against it. They're currency plays. He prefers betting on it, the DLR, because the USD is on the upside.

ETF for parking US, Canadian and Australian $ to be used at short notice. With interest rates as low as they are you are not going to get a low risk yield and take it in. In the high yield space there are some options but they have equity-like risk. Putting CAD$ in a foreign currency, it is attractive to hold US$. The DLR-T gives you a money market type yield. FXA is the Australian dollar ETF.

(Top Pick May 5/16, Up 4.02%) This is a good way to invest in the US currency. The US dollar tends to do well in the summer months. He has been long the US dollar for a month now.

The Canadian dollar has done well during March and April for the last 9 years in a row. So he is going long on the US dollar now.

Likes this because he can strategically hold his cash in US$s. He is always aware what it costs to do these things. The MER is only a half percent.
