Quick question with perhaps not a very quick answer; buying physically gold back etf's have their pro's and cons but beyond that and if you have long term bearish view on the USD, would you buy a hedged or unhedged ETF? Do I assume rightly so that buying unhedged means that if the USD goes down, performance would be better than the hedged version? Any light on the hedged versus unhedged question would be appreciated.
