3. You may find that if you stick with USD and are expecting to retire to USD the gains you could make on USD investments will be just fine.

That is questionable given most US asset classes are at or near historic highs.

You do not need the currency exposure to get much of the diversification that comes from holding non-US assets. ADRs is one example or a fund that invests in mostly non-US shares is another example.

While they're quoted in US$, ADRs in fact have the currency exposure built in. Same goes for funds investing abroad.
