The investment purpose is key and I left it out - this is a long-term play as part of a diversified retirment strategy. It's pure currency play but I don't want to have to actively manage it as with futures. I take the point about matching currency exposure to liabilities etc. But there's no short term income need at issue. I was just thinking of putting this years IRA lump (8k) into non-USD bonds (I'd, of course, consider rolling over enough to meet minimums).
