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.


If you want to hedge your position in currencies. One way to hedge is Triangular arbitrage in currencies only. But that would be like sailing in the same boat. So it would be better if you hedge your position by investing in Stocks and Indices to protect yourself.

hello,
it is not advisable in forex because you will not be safe in hedge positions during news time.you can do in stock with options hedge/future .in Indian market it is possible,but investment /return ratio is very bad,so i think you can find out some other stratagy.

You will be a lot safer in a hedge formation than in a normal 1 pair trade of the same pair that has a huge spread in Forex...

With hedging, it is true that you make small profits, but the upside is lower risk in the market.

@exnessdubai
Hedge is great tool to protect your account. Especially during news when you can close both sides of position with profit

I like what I trade, I trade what I like

True that it cost you different amounts of USD for each of the 3 pairs, but it is all relative. Hard to convince someone until they try it out... If you don't trade equal lots, you will see that the pair that you have the biggest trade in will Overwhelm the other pairs.

You also need to take in account that all 3 pairs will not move the same number of pips over the same period. In the case of AUDUSD, EURUSD, and EURAUD, you will find that EURAUD generally will move MANY more pips than the other pairs.


It's called Relative Force.
A goes into 1 direction of 10 pips
B goes into the opposite direction of 10 pips
=> so AB distance is twice.
EurAud is so twice volatile.

Triangle hegde works only for
EurUsd - GbpUSd - EurGbp
AudUsd - NzdUsd - AudNzd

Eur Usd Jpy... doesn't work as sometimes both safe even currency Usd & Jpy can be totaly uncorrelated

About EurUsd & GbpUsd & EurGbp... Edge story. Pro hedger of Real accounts. At least try to provide an exemple that works !!
If Buy EurUsd and Sell GbpUsd SO YOU BUY EurGbp! fool

@togr
'Ps: I was wondering how come Fx could move 1 single pips since when you buy you have imediate counterpart that sell. So it's equal'
HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHHAH
So funny!
I will explain you 1 day.


@CrazyTrader
Dear ...,

I have an idea for you. As you did wipe all your real accounts you can do 2 things.
1. Give your advice as much as you can. It will be very valuable - just put the note to do exactly the opposite
2. Trade as usually but REVERSE all your trades, it does mean buy instead of sell and vice versa.

I believe with such approach you become a very successful trader worth to follow.

You are welcome. And no, I am not kidding you, I am serious, trying to help you recover the loss of all your accounts.

Completely agree! Invest in different markets to mitigate the risks. I like this approach.

@togr And everyone else (But mainly you since you said 'try it out')

If 3 pair triangular trading doesn't work, then explain this account -->

You guys are only ever thinking Instantaneous trading (Looking at a snapshot of the market at a specific point in time). What you fail to realize is that you need to look at a longer time period and realize that all pairs don't move equally and cancel each other out.

For example, take whatever the current price of 3 pairs such as AUDUSD, EURUSD, and EURAUD and notice how at the specific instance you look at, there is a relative bias towards one pair. Then think if all pairs were priced at parity 1:1:1, there would be no bias. Or look at a different point in time, I recommend pick a long time period to compare such as 1 year apart. Notice that there is a difference in the relative value and bias of the pairs. That difference in value/bias is how you can make money along with market inefficiencies. The pairs tend to gravitate towards each other so that if you were to trade a full circle, you would end up with what you started (minus fees of course). But if you trade when the market gets off a little, you can safely make profit like I show in the account I posted above.

There is the proof, just look at the history of the trades done.

Regardless of the reasoning it is a delusional strategy if the aim is to trade with no risk. There is always risk - just that you don't know what the outliers are given that the strategy is so convoluted. You are attempting to triangulate the inefficiency of volatility spread between supposedly correlated pairs. Just note the conditional 'if' in your statement.

Conceptually isn't it easier to trade just one pair (any pair) and trade the trend? If you can't make money trading one pair what is the logic that you can make money trying to trade multiple basket pairs in some form of convoluted way? If the whole strategy is dependent on market inefficiency, how do you determine when the market is in that state and able to trade it?

If your proof of concept is a trade account (which is a demo by the way), I can also show you martingale accounts that can perform for a period before it gets blown. You have to first get past the logic.

This is actually running on multiple accounts, but I do not have permission to share the real accounts even though one of them has over 250,000 in it running this EA.

Also, regarding your other concern this strategy has been backtested using a custom made program to test the 3 pairs with both Bid and Ask tick data for all 3 pairs. So it is not proof of concept, I just have the demo account to share with others.

I would also like to point out that I did not state 'no risk', but rather less risk especially when a pair decides to spike or dip wildly.

I agree that conceptually it is easier to trade 1 pair, but this strategy limits the risk by protecting against big moves.

Thanks for your clarification.

I understand conceptually the nature of such a trade model where the risk modelling is using offsetting inverse relationship to limit the risk band. In risk modelling there are two primary risk i.e. risk (which is quantifiable) and uncertainty (not quantifiable). Whilst such a model might limit direct risk it invariably in my view increases uncertainty (thru more moving parts) and may by design potentially increases overall risk. The logic is that such a model assumes risk is limited to certain elastic band because of an established correlated relationship between the pairs. The problem comes in when there is a market event that dislocates the historical relationship such as what happened with LTCM. I assume the model does not use protective stop because that would be self defeating due to design requirements.

In the historical backtest, did it include any significant market event that may have temporarily dislocate such relationships e.g. when SNB removed its cap? We know that outcome caused some brokers to go broke due to inadequate risk control.
