Hi everyone,

Its been 7 months I am investing in stocks. Basically, I am in the Euro Zone and investing in Turkish stocks. My main problem is the exchange rate, EUR/TRY. How can I avoid this?

I have searched the internet a bit and found about ETF and currency futures however reading doesn't ring the bell that much as putting into practice.

Any recommendations, pieces of advice?

You would short or long the relevant FX pair, however be aware that futures and options have expiry dates so you would need to be sure you sold or exercised them before expiry and bought new ones if you're still holding your stock investment.

If these stocks are optionable, try to sell covered call or buy put.
