Hello people. Great charts.

Got some dumb questions about the above that i hope someone can help before i jump in and short any foreign stocks.

I'm from the U.K with my base currency of GBP. If i were to buy a U.S stock and it appreciated 5%, but the GBP also rose 5% on the USD , disregarding commissions etc, i'd have made zero profit right ?? If on the other hand the USD rose 5% with the stock i'd have made a 10% return ?

If this is correct, when say buying a foreign stock whats the best strategy with regards to handling the currency movements? Is it best to buy or short when the GBP is technically overbought and looks like a good chance it will weaken? Or better to simply buy a batch of USD when the gbp is high and trade with that in your account ?

Or do you think its best avoiding trading foreign stocks altogether over the short to medium term due to currency issues ?

I'm looking at this from mostly a shorting U.S stocks point of you.

Thanks for any help.
