Hedge positions in foreign currencies or not?

Hi all,

 

As an European I have at least 30-40% of my holdings in foreign currencies such as the USD or GBP. Moves from 1,42 to 1,29 and back to 1,46 for the EUR/USD for example make my returns vary widely over the year.

 

With a long term view in mind, should I bother looking for a hedge for these currency moves or should I just ignore them and hope none of them devaluates majorly for extended periods?

 

My portfolio is still small (being a student..) but I would probably dislike these volatile moves if my portfolio was ten times the size it currently is...

 

Thanks!

 

 

Tom
