Hello. Please excuse me for my newbie question. I want to hedge my forex positions (i.e buy or sell ) with other financial instruments with no loss to my capital. Is it possible anyway ? How i can do this if this possible ? Thanks.

It is possible but it cant be profitable
e.g. you buy EURUSD
so you would need to sell e.g. EURJPY
and buy USDJPY

And if the day afer... both USD & JPY get weak... You have 3 loser trades.

Try it demo... you will see that you won't close any loser trade manually... but it will be automatic at some point (margin call)

Nope you dont get it .
If you do such triangle it is like hedge on the same pair.
Equity wont move anywhere (just swaps)

Lol

Do you know something about trading after al this years?

Have you ever noticed than Market in pratice has nothing to do with such theory?
Market is real, wild, nasty and unpredictable.

Open straight away a demo account!
Open long EurUsd... as soon as 10 pips down, Open long UsdJpy & Short EurJpy.
Then screenshot 3 days in row at interval time.

Trust me you will be surprised!
I really wonder your knowledge about fx market? only theory like this?

CrazyTrader.....IMHO vontogr is correct. As long as you do the correct lot sizing, you can hedge using the method he mentioned.

I used an ea that used to trade EURGBP synthetically using EURUSD & GBPUSD because the spreads would be lower using the more liquid currencies. The lot sizing is key.....the EURJPY lot needs to be slightly bigger since you get more yen for a EUR than for a USD.

@ilqarsadiqov200, I also believe that there is no point in hedging. You can make opposite trades as much as you like but you will end up with the same constant loss. As a matter of interest, any hedge position can be broken down into a single position, without the consequent build up in negative swaps and commission costs(brokers love hedge traders for a reason........)
