So true! I have no idea how retail traders can make money by using hedging strategy.

Hedge in MT4 is Locking Temporary your Equity. You can do other Profit traders and if close that new profit traders - you will receive New + to Balance.

Profit = Equity > Balance.

Usually Martingaile collect new balance but not Equity. Equity go Down when Balance Up
I use Additional balance to kill part of orders from Drawdown - OverLap

In MT5 you cannot Hedge - there if you have 1 sell and you add 1 buy - platform close 1 sell and open Buy at current price
So in Mt4 you have mo possibilities to survive with temporary Hedging.
You can develop a lot of strategies with locked Equity / But for unlock that you need open new orders and use proportion to reduce Locked Lots by new profit.

I like TMA strategy - see my performance and method of trading :)

Hedging is a waste of time and only for people who don't know what direction to trade and those shouldn't be trading in the first place.

I kind of agree but I thought that a lot of pro traders in bank hedge their positions using the options market

It depends on how you define hedging, what you know about hedging, how you use hedging, what type of hedging and what is your basic trading system upon which you are using hedging.

Just hedging doesn't mean anything without a solid base trading system. But hedging can be a very powerful tool to minimise overall risk exposure of your account if you are trading many currency pairs. Also, hedging is useful to make the equity curve smoother for many profitable strategies.

As per my understanding, hedging would make sense more or less for business, which is in general 'long' with their products - for example producers and etc. or long term financial investment in given asset, aiming to benefit with option trades from mid - or short term price decline and keeping on the same time original investment.

Me personally, I do not like hedging (long and short in the same asset) or taking position in the same direction in opposite correlation assets. :)

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 would like to close my trade, then I understand that I opened a trade agilest the trend instead of hedging; hedging is not any solution to me.

Thats right. However, all broker don't allow it. So, traders should choose broker carefully.
