Subject:  Oz investments to maximise return on US$ Date:  10/20/2000  2:14 PM

Hi folks - I am from Oz but living in the US right now, getting paid in greenbacks. Given that the A$ is so low right now, I am thinking about leveraging into the Oz market (converting my US$ back to A$) and riding the A$ as it comes back up.

I am planning to stay in the US for a while, and I want to maximise the US$ return on my investment.

Some questions:
* got any thoughts on this strategy? It is dependent n A$ rising, and I am happy to wait for 12 months or so, or longer.
* what should I buy for consistent performance, remembering that I will be leveraging the investment.
* should I buy proerty or stocks?

Let me know your thoughts by email or on the boards - thanks!!
