Dan or other guys, I'd like to know your opinion regarding hedging described here in chat window. Thanks in advance.

Hi MP,
If I understand you correct, you want the two different trades to stay "open" instead of netting, correct?
My personal view is that I dont care about single trades, but only look at my overall position. So I would not have any benefits from seeing individual trades.
I understand that you can have a long term view and another short term view. If I was bullish long term, but bearish short term, I would do one of the following:
1) Buy a long term Option (call) and adjust the delta to reflect the short term view...
2) buy a forward position with val date far out.. and sell a spot/forward with shorter time to valuedate. then both trades will stay open.
Hope this answer the question, otherwise get back to me.

OK, now it's clearer Dan. What you described is more professional attitude. As I'm small player I'm very much focused to short timeframe and want to success in range trading Market which is obvious in low Vol environment. Only rarely there is break and that's usually limited SL for me. Now Vol seems to be increasing so I'll change approach. It's obvious that MT4 is structured for different traders, of course very "small boys". Thanks, MP.

HI MP,
I hear what you say, but part of the reason we are running the webinars is because FXO etc is no longer only tools for the large hedgefunds... they are avaliable for everyone.. Dont know if you got a Saxo account, but if you do then check out the FXO risk reports... They will help you a lot when trading FX and FXO combined..
FXO isnt always the answer, but checkout strategies like covered calls/puts, as they can be interesting as "take-profit" levels for your spot trading... You can use a mix of limit orders and short option strikes...

I have live account and use Options. In fact it's pretty rare product and only few brokerage offer them. Unfortunately they are quite expensive. Anyway I need to understand them :)
BTW: since 35 till 40 minute in webinar there is lost sound track (during live session yesterday all was correct).

Dan Larsen Dan Larsen
Very true :-) ... will check the sound problem with the relevant team..thx

@MP : You can actually do a hedge via the spot. However, you will need to have a related order hang on either of the positions to preventing netting off of the spot positions. As all opposing positions will be netted off the next day.

Via the Saxo platform, of course
