    Question for you austrian economically minded people who are interested in alternative investments…

    I want to diversify my portolio more by buying foreign stocks but I’ve come across an issue. Assuming the dollar is going to lose much, if not all of it’s value once quantitative easing strikes and it’s obvious the government cannot pay back the national debt/unfunded liabilities, foreign stocks with sound fundamentals will soar. However, to realize that income, you have to sell them for USD on the stock market. I’m trying to avoid dollars as much as possible.

    Do you have any exit strategies that do not involve the dollar? Is it possible to realize the gains without getting paid back in USD?

    I don’t know the particulars, but it must be possible to hold a bank account in foreign currency. You could trade in the currency of a foreign stock market and convert your holdings to Swiss Francs.

    Here is how the Swiss Franc has done against the dollar:
