Steve Purcell, Real Estate Agent Re/Max Affinity Plus

Situation where the United States dollar rises in value in comparison with other foreign currencies resulting in the decrease in the value of the foreign securities. This is due to the fact that the principal and income payments on the foreign securities are based on that particular foreign currency and thus must be converted into United States dollars. When that particular foreign currency is weak, and the United States dollar is strong, fewer dollars will be received upon conversion.
