I trade through Fidelity. I'm paying $50 currency exchange fee with each AMAVF purchase. At least on the 100 shares I've traded. So that's a premium, in effect, of $.50 per share. Is there a way to avoid this charge?
Thanks dou - I have a 7.95 transaction / commission fee at Fidelity. When you trade at Scottrade is there not a currency conversion charge listed anywhere? It's that charge I'm wondering if it can be avoided. This isn't an ADR so maybe the only way is to setup an account with a broker on the foreign exchange and trade in local currency.
