Going short to Hedge?


MTG

Question

Hi,

If you have gone short to Hedge (Dj Wall st @ 23800) against your free falling Long position (Dj Wall st @29350) and you now have a substantial profit on your short position, is it wise to cash in your profit to act as a cash buffer against a margin call, before the market reaches  your short position at 23800, or is it better to keep the security of the Hedge and by doing so, let the profit erode? 

Probably a judgement call I know, but just looking for opinions and ideas?

Cheers!

Today could be the decider for US indices, if there is to be a retest of the lows it could likely start with a failure at the current Thursday's high retest for leaders Nasdaq and S&P.

If Thursday's highs is taken out today then would expect another push higher.

    • Hi @beck_l24 Thanks for reaching out,  When trading on a limited risk account you are required to place guaranteed stops on all of your trades. Using a guaranteed stop guarantees your stop level regardless of whether market gapping occurs. In the event of market gapping IG takes on the risk and will fund the slippage to guarantee your level. With this in mind when we perceive the market to be volatile we will increase min stop distances to reflect the level of risk that we are willing to take on in that period. Unfortunately you will not be able to avoid this on your account as it is expected behaviour when there is some volatility.  However you can reach out to helpdesk@ig.com.sg should you wish to enquire about upgrading your account from limited risk to standard. Standard account does not require guaranteed stops.  All the best,  Anda
