Currency Futures (Canadian dollar D6) - How do I go about hedging by Exposure to USD
Hi there, My base currency is Canadian and I hold some USD exposure right now due to investments. I am new to using Interactive Brokers and futures trading. To my understanding it is possible to mantain a hedge using the cash-settled large and mini Currency Futures Contract and occasionally adjust depending on your USD exposure. https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/fx/g10/canadian-dollar.html Per https://www.retailinvestor.org/hedge.html#risk "It is too expensive to hedge." The cost to buy a $100,000 futures contract good for a year, is about $5. Pittance. Yes you must provide collateral but that is not a cost. You will also find that buried somewhere in whatever method you chose, is a cost/benefit equal to the difference in interest rates between the countries. Since Canada and US rates are so close you can cancel out any cost by using limit orders that let normal market volatility make up the difference. The fund managers who say hedging is expensive are referring to using options. This method IS expensive. Options are a one-sided bet on the direction of FX, expiring within a specific time span. They are not hedges. The cash funding of open futures contracts come from the daily settlements. If your position gains $1,000 in value one day, there will be $1,000 put into your account. More importantly, if your position loses $1,000, it will be taken from your account. If there is not sufficient cash your broker will consider it borrowed and charge you interest. You must realize that because this is a hedge, you are not 'losing' that cash. For every dollar you might lose in the futures account, the offsetting investment in the foreign security will have gained the same amount. Agreed, you cannot liquidate that cash daily, but the value is there." 1) Anybody have any experience in this in how to consider which month of futures contract to purchase, (near month or 1 year from now if I want one year of) I believe futures contract automatically roll-forward to the next month. The Price Curve seems to curve down, and is in some sort of backwardation? So farther away in time cost more due to priced in uncertainty - and also more thinly traded? 2) Collateral is required so I assume is some sort of Margin that is required to maintain the contract, 3) What are the calculations to determine how much to hedge out. Say I have $100k USD? Is it just Looking at say $100k USD x the Future Price Rate (of CAD/USD) or the current Spot Forex Exchange Rate? I.e. $100k USD / 0.74500s (Aug '20) = $134k CAD ~ So 1 $100k CAD Contract and 3-4 $10k CAD mini contracts? 4) Any resources to learn about this? Thanks in advance
Picking an online broker for investing for a non-US Non-EU investor
I live in Turkey and picked up an interest in investing to be able to feel financially safe and hopefully free in the future, two years ago. I picked a couple of divident paying stocks and bought small amounts. I also picked a couple of funds and invested even smaller amounts to see how they perform. One thing I noticed is that, the market is not likely to beat the inflation (if it can, it will be barely - and statistics are not very reliable at the moment), and nobody in the country remembers a period where USD lost power to Turkish lira in a persistent way, but we are seeing the reverse right now. This is so obvious and certain for most of our people that just buying USD alone is an investment form which will not fail you. Obviously unless I happened to pick up the stocks that will constantly outperform the whole market, it's unlikely that I gain a financial freedom in this way. And I can't do day trading or short term investment because I can't sit in front of a screen and monitor the market. Also, dividends are not reliable as a company might decide to skip a year or stop paying it altogether. And the divident performance of the whole market is around 1%. So, I don't feel like this environment is the right one for long term investment. That's why I am planning to invest in the US and maybe the UK stock markets. There are a couple of banks that let me invest in those markets, but their commission rates are insane. The minimum they will get for one transaction is $25. I was planning to start with something like $250-300 and if I invest with them, there goes one-tenth of my money. However, transferring money to a foreign account costs 40-50 Turkish liras, which roughly translates to $7-8. Considering that I'm planning to put small amount of money and buy stocks with it, transferring money to a broker makes sense. However this arises safety issues as I'm going to invest with an American or British broker. Moreover it will have to be an online broker because others don't accept foreigner investors. Risk increases. While I was doing research, I learnt that Saxobank, Tradestation Global and Interactive Brokers accept Turkish citizens. I can't pick Saxobank as they have a minimum of $10,000 which I won't have for a while. I checked them out to see if they are safe, but apart from obvious advertisement websites, it is very confusing. For instance, https://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex-reviews/165/tradestation-stock-broker and https://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex-reviews/165/tradestation-stock-broker They both are slammed here. But check this out: https://www.tradingview.com/brokeTradeStation/reviews/ Here, where the company can answer, there is a different story: https://www.trustpilot.com/review/interactivebrokers.com This one is another: https://www.trustpilot.com/review/tradestation.com?languages=en So, what are your thoughts about these two brokers? Are there any alternatives I am missing? Or should I just not invest in these markets? EDIT: I'm also worried about inactivity fees as I plan to buy and forget whether stocks or funds.

Investing in MM/Certificate Deposits as a part of portfolio
I have a chunk of money to invest and I would like to allocate part of it in a low risk asset with max 19m maturity. I don’t live in the US and don’t earn in USD, moreover interest rate in the country of my residence is extremely low. I have brokerage account with Interactive Brokers and have been eyeing USD Certificate Deposits they broker. Since I never bought any MM/bond instruments I wanted to ask if:
Is there any reason why this would be a bad idea , except for currency risk exposure? Is there something I need to look out for ?
I don’t plan to trade but hold the instrument until maturity and cash in coupons - will Interactive Brokers simply handle all the cash flows for me?
If I wanted to hedge currency exposure is entering and inverted currency position via forex/cfd a viable strategy or is it bettecheaper to buy a put option on USD?
Would you recommend a different low risk alternative ?
Help with transaction denominated in foreign currency
I’m hoping this will be a straight-forward answer for some knowledgeable people. I don’t have much forex experience and also don’t have too much experience on interactive brokers. I recently purchased a basket of yen-denominated securities and wanted to hedge my currency exposure (usd is my base currency) since I believe these specific companies are likely to be undervalued but I do not want to opine on exchange rate movements. Since I didn’t convert my usd to yen before making the purchase IB automatically loaned me the yen so I have a negative yen balance that I’m paying interest on. So, what does this mean for my total yen-denominated stock strategy? I am long the stocks but I believe I’m short yen from the loan and need to go long yen to truly offset the currency risk. Every time I think I understand it I can basically convince myself of the opposite (if share prices stay the same couldn't I just satisfy the loan with the yen proceeds? Or is loan denominated in usd). Comments very much appreciated.
[Serious] I'm done with RH tendies boys, I'm ready to upgrade to a real broker...buuuut...
...which one? Now, I've been shopping around a little bit, and understand enough of the markets to have narrowed down my picks to USAA, IB, and Optionhouse, but I'm looking to see if anyone has some experience with the advantages and disadvantages of the platforms, and what I should be considering before I take the plunge off the peir. 1) USAA. Commission is pretty gnarley, but through family assistance, I will be trading at the reduced commission rate of ~$6 pretty consistantly. Gives advance currency exchanges for trading foreign companies, and seems to have a competent, if not exactly sleek UI. Can't figure out how to access options on it though. I'm told they have very good fulfillment and instantanious placement times for orders, but I'm not sure how relevant that is. 2) Interactive Brokers: Lowest comissions of the 3, until I start playing with bigboys numbers, and won't need y'alls advisories, so don't worry about that. From what I can see, they're inconveniant as fuck, but you get what you don't pay for. I am <25, so I only need 3k to open an account with them, and that's not a problem. They don't do forex/futures (don't remember which), but that's fine cause I'm not interested in those yet. 3) Optionshouse: Somewhere between the previous two. Reasonable commission rates, very competative options trading rates, but not much said about them in the fors-or-againsts. Going into this one mostly blind. Can anyone add any significant DDs on these brokers that I should be considering, or even feilding some of their own? I'm done with Robinhood and it's buggy piece of fuckery that not even an autistic faggot like me can abide. (Don't worry about shitflinging, ima take everything in here with a mountain of salt. I just wanna hear peoples experiences/gripes about them)
I have been weighing options for opening a new broker and Interactive Brokers is the one I have most heavily considered. However, it appears that their forex swaps are extremely high. IB Rates If i am calculating this correctly that would mean that just for holding a 100,000 GBP/USD Buy trade that I would be charged $30ish dollars a day. I hate to be misinformed as I'm sure I am, I just can't be sure if i am making a mistake or if these are the actual rates. Thank you for any and all help!
