Hedge Position

Allows you to hedge an existing unhedged position. "Hedging" refers to the opening of a new position that offsets an existing position on the same instrument. (For example, to hedge a 5 lot Buy position on EURUSD, you would open a 5 lot Sell position on EURUSD.) Right-click on the position record and select Hedge position. (This option is only available if hedging is allowed on your system.)

The “Hedge Position” dialog box will appear:

Enter the desired number of lots into the “Amount” field.

 

Note: By default, you are offered to fully hedge the position.

 

Note: No additional margin is required to hedge a position.

 

Press OK to confirm the hedge.

 

Note: You can hedge an existing unhedged position on an account with insufficient usable margin. You cannot, however, open a new position on an account with insufficient usable margin.
