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.

To be honest I never understood the concept of hedging and how it works well for any trader. As per the concept, you place buy and sell order simultaneously on the same instrument with same lot size. You earn when one of your trades start going into profit. But the other one is surely going in losses. Yes, you surely earn from the difference from the magnitude of either direction, but their are spreads as well. So how does it actually work for a retail trader? I never understood this.

Its such a vague strategy for me as per my past experience.
The more your practice, the more you learn.

For anyone who knows the concept of hedging, it works and for those who don't have an idea about it, you need to learn hedging.

if anyone ever remember the Swiss bank did in history and wiped out so many accounts in the world and bankrupted many trading Companies over night, then only hedge will keep one live if it happens again.

Hedging is a very complicated thing. I mean that you can learn trading from that kind of resources where everything is explained to the non-professionals, but hedging requires some serious background and knowledge. You cannot get the information about how to hedge your deals in a step-by-step instruction. You should also be able to make some sort of research and analyze the charts in a professional way. You should also work with statistics and learn the correlations between various instruments. However, you should know that the game is worth the candle. Hedging is a very efficient tool which helps the traders make their results more consistent and forseeable which is of utmost importance when it comes to determining a successful or unsuccessful traders.
