Letters: The dollar, super megaphone, technical nickel

Readers inquire about ways to play the dollar, support more responsibility in super, and find buy signals for nickel.

Regarding Ian Verrender's piece on the likely decline in the Australian dollar exchange rate, a number of Australian stocks were mentioned. Are there other alternatives for taking advantage of a fall in the Australian dollar, for example buying US currency or buying US stocks (either directly or through a fund)?


I write regarding Alan Kohler’s November 1 article, in The Australian, on the failure of superannuation.
