2. Invest in U.S. dollar exchange-traded funds

Exchange-traded funds or ETFs, are types of investment funds that are traded on an exchange, and have their own ticker to buy directly into it. There are ETFs designed for currency fluctuations, whether you’re betting on a rise or fall, you can find ETFs that will fit your strategy accordingly. In the case of the strong U.S. dollar, you can buy into bullish dollar ETFs that establish positions in derivative contracts to track the change of the dollar over time. In more simpler terms, its a fairly easy way to profit if the dollar keeps rising without actually having to trade currencies yourself. It’s worth noting that you can also buy dollar ETFs that are leveraged. This type of strategy is for the more aggressive type of investor, with a longer time horizon.
