The way I think about International is

1. I want to invest in International when my local currency is strong so I can buy more of the foreign stock.

2. When my currency is weak, I want the additional return (dividends and increase in stock prices) from not having the currency hedged.

Why would I want the currency hedged?
Isn't that just an extra cost on top of those fees already?
