Q: Hello! I have identified a Canadian small cap mining company that would be a good allocation fit for my TFSA. It trades on the TSX and NYSE. As it happens, I don't have enough capital in my CAD TFSA account to make a meaningful purchase. I do have enough in my USD TFSA account, however.

My options would be:
- transfer the cash from the USD to CAD account
- raise the capital by triggering a CAD account sale
- buy the US listed shares

Is there anything to be aware of when buying the US listed shares in this case?

And, more generally, where would one exercise caution? I'm thinking of a situation I've seen where US listed shares trade at significantly lower volumes.

Thanks for your consideration.
