This ETF offers investors broad based exposure to the Japanese equity market with a twist; it hedges out the currency fluctuations. As a result, the fund is a 'pure play' on the performance of Japanese stocks, stripping out the impact of the yen and its changes in value. Thanks to this methodology, DXJ could be a great choice for investors who believe that the yen will weaken against the dollar but are still looking to scoop up Japanese equities. However, it would make for a poor choice if you think that the yen will strengthen as it will not partake in the currency appreciation and will probably underpeform other broad based Japan ETFs such as EWJ in this time frame. It should also be noted that the fund costs significantly more than comparable Japanese ETF products so it might not make the best pick for cost-conscious investors. With that being said, DXJ implements this strategy much cheaper than investors would likely be able to do on their own making it a quality pick for investors wary of currency changes but bullish on Japanese stocks.
