Thanks @redratsal, the video was helpful.

But from what I understand the collat. loan basically remove the currency risk, for a cost of 1.61%/year for USD (which seems fine to me). So if you don't want to manage your account like a pro and like @Fadi , and assuming you have an account in Euros and no other loan in USD, just buy the USD instrument you want and that's it!
