Deutsche Bank launches its Germany Hedged Equity Fund (DBGR) today, the first U.S. ETF allowing investment in that country's stock market while neutralizing exposure to changes in the euro/dollar exchange rate. The unhedged Germany Index Fund (EWG) is up 35% Y/Y. WisdomTree - whose hedged Japan fund has been a blockbuster success - is working on its own hedged German ETF.

    So this is $EWG divided by $EURUSD, in other words a direct tracking of the $DAX as if it were a dollar-denominated index. eg if you bought at say 8000, and sold at 8800, you would make 10% in $, irrespective of the Euro. Good idea.
