Canadians talk about the value of the $CD versus $US frequently. Since the US is Canada's major trading parter, it affects much about the Canadian economy, the price of buying goods from the states as well as the price of travelling south. So the answer is definitely yes.

Re: International Allocation

21% of total and 42% of equities. That's my happy spot. My international funds are the only stock funds I'm in that are not indexs. I'm in Vanguard international growth and international value. So far so good 2.5 yr........shredder
