Hi everyone quick question.
Would it be a bad idea to convert Rand to dollar to invest in the US markets now considering its around R18.20 to the dollar.
assuming it goes back down to around R14/15 would it be a big loss on say R10 000?
My reason to do it now is because of the price of some great blue chip stocks at the moment.

Ignoring additional costs of transferring money, if the Rand drops from R18.40 to R15.40 it is a loss of -16.67%.


If your blue chips are going to grow by more than that in the short term it may be worth it. If it is long term and regular monthly/quarterly investments I personally wouldn't worry about it.
