The purpose of this thread hedging is useful or not. In order to me, hedging is an investment to reduce the risk of adverse price movements. Practically hedging brings no profit because of your intention. When I open a trade, I always try to support my trade even the trend is going against me. So better to close the trade and open a new one when it seems to be in right trend.

I seem, hedging is the most complicated trading style; it’s not the style for the mass people! I have never seen any retail good trader with the hedging trading style.

After over many decades of history data back testing with more then 30 forex pairs, my opinion is that hedge is functioning same as stop loss. It freeze the stop loss amount in unfavorable time and waiting until the favorable time returns, then react the trading. Instead of loss money by close the loss trade with stop loss. Also, when hedge trading, while unfavorable direction trading is frozen, the other direction start making money. Anyway, it's not new in trading and there are job title called 'Hedge fund manager'😄

Imagine the situation that your position is becoming loosing.
You can either close it or hedge (or it can hit sl and close)
If you hedge it you got 2 positions and your equity drop is fixed.
So it seems there is no advantage to hedge position, the only exception could be when market moves a lot in both directions like during NFP. And in such situation you are able to close both hedged position without loss.
On the other hand it is risky as hell to close one side of hedged positions during such news :)

I agree. I have tried hedging and it just doesn't seem like it is worth the effort

One more vote for ' I don't think it is worth the effort ' . Maybe hedging is good only for the most experienced professional traders using this style.

Accept the loss as experience

At present I am not willing to hedging at all , because I have bad experience when work using hedging , loss more wider than recover loss, hard part using hedging when should open lock hedging , this is like as dilemma, if good in analysis might possible become profit , but if wrong the way also will making loss more.

You can create a new way to trade in ForEx if you know how to use hedging. If the market reverses and goes against you, you can not only freeze the loss of a bad trade, but you can earn more than you lose, and close the whole sequence of trades with added profit. See an example in my profile, the N&N Financial's manual trading account.
