The Euro Currency Trust ETF (FXE) is one of the easiest ways for investors to protect against the declining dollar. Interest rates continue to rise in the U.S. while they have remained flat in Europe. Stock valuations in Europe have been more attractive and this has helped European markets advance so far in 2006.

The Euro Currency Trust is up 8% so far this year. That’s even better than the S&P 500’s 6% gain. Murray Coleman from Investor’s Business Daily profiled this fund in an article this week.
