Three Pairs Hedging

Hi Guys,
I am a great fan of hedging ;-)

Here I show you how I hedge “circel pairs” = GBPUSD > USDCHF > GBPCHF”
“Circel pairs” means each currency “GBP” “USD” and “CHF” appears twice in these three pairs.
GBPUSD = Buy
USDCHF = Buy
GBPCHF = Sell

GBPUSD = Sell
USDCHF = Sell
GBPCHF = Buy

I used no indicator at all, but it took sometimes a while to get in profit.
I used same lotsize on all three pairs and TP of 100$

One might say, hey, why did you not trade just GBPUSD and GBPCHF?
Because, it causes such a big DD which can blow an account in very short time, so please do not try this at home ;-)

Here some more examples for three pairs hedging:

BUY BUY SELL
or SELL SELL BUY

EUR/CHF CHF/JPY EUR/JPY

GBP/CHF CHF/JPY GBP/JPY

USD/CHF CHF/JPY USD/JPY

EUR/GBP GBP/CHF EUR/CHF

EUR/USD USD/CHF EUR/CHF

EUR/GBP GBP/JPY EUR/JPY

EUR/GBP GBP/USD EUR/USD

EUR/USD USD/JPY EUR/JPY

GBP/USD USD/CHF GBP/CHF

GBP/USD USD/JPY GBP/JPY

There are still some more opportunities, but then the spreads are very high!

I used a simple EA, where I only had to enter the three pairs, whether I want to open a sell or buy order for the single pairs, the lotsize and the TP. It did not use any indicator and opened new trades as soon as the previous ones where closed.
But I do not have this EA and do not know its name anymore. But I had it from this forum. I would have preferred to have automatic Lot size (calculated by percentage of free margin) and automatic TP (calculated by percentage of equity).

Forex Hedging: How to Create a Simple Profitable Hedging Strategy

Ultimately to achieve the above goal it becomes necessary to pay someone else to cover downside risk.

This article looks at several popular hedging strategies. The first section is an introduction to the concept of hedging. The second two sections look at hedging strategies to protect against downside risk. Pair hedging is a strategy which trades correlated instruments in different directions. This is done to even out the return profile. Option hedging limits downside risk by the use of call or put options. This is as near to a perfect hedge as you can get, but it comes at a price as is explained.

What Is Hedging?

Hedging is a way of protecting an investment against losses. Hedging can be used to protect against an adverse price move in an asset that you’re holding. It can also be used to protect against fluctuations in currency exchange rates when an asset is priced in a different currency to your own.

When thinking about a hedging strategy it’s always worth keeping in mind the two golden rules:

  1. Hedging always has a cost
  2. There’s no such thing as a perfect hedge

Hedging might help you sleep at night. But this peace of mind comes at a cost. A hedging strategy will have a direct cost. But it can also have an indirect cost in that the hedge itself can restrict your profits.

The second rule above is also important. The only sure hedge is not to be in the market in the first place. Always worth thinking on beforehand.

Simple currency hedging: The basics

The most basic form of hedging is where an investor wants to mitigate currency risk. Let’s say a US investor buys a foreign asset that’s denominated in British pounds. For simplicity, let’s assume it’s a company share though keep in mind that the principle is the same for any other kind of assets.

The table below shows the investor’s account position.

Position # Symbol Rate Trade Volume Value GBP Val $ PL $
1 RIO.L 1893.00 Long 1.000 1893.00 2,839.50 0.00

Without protection the investor faces two risks. The first risk is that the share price falls. The second risk is that the value of the British pound falls against the US dollar. Given the volatile nature of currencies, the movement of exchange rates could easily eliminate any potential profits on the share. To offset this, the position can be hedged using a GBPUSD currency forward as follows.

Position # Symbol Rate Trade Volume Value GBP Val $ PL $
1 RIO.L 1893.00 Long 1.000 1893.00 2,839.50 0.00
2 GBPUSD 1.5000 Short 0.019 -1893.00 2,839.50 0.00

In the above the investor “shorts” a currency forward in GBPUSD at the current spot rate. The volume is such that the initial nominal value matches that of the share position. This “locks in” the exchange rate therefore giving the investor protection against exchange rate moves.

At the outset, the value of the forward is zero. If GBPUSD falls the value of the forward will rise. Likewise if GBPUSD rises, the value of the forward will fall.

Scenario# GBP/USD Share value GBP USD Share PL FX PL Total ($)
GBP/USD falls 1.3000 1893.00 2,460.90 -378.60 378.60 0.00
GBP/USD rises 1.7500 1893.00 3,312.75 473.25 -473.25 0.00

The table above shows two scenarios. In both the share price in the domestic currency remains the same. In the first scenario, GBP falls against the dollar. The lower exchange rate means the share is now only worth $2460.90. But the fall in GBPUSD means that the currency forward is now worth $378.60. This exactly offsets the loss in the exchange rate.

Note also that if GBPUSD rises, the opposite happens. The share is worth more in USD terms, but this gain is offset by an equivalent loss on the currency forward.

In the above examples, the share value in GBP remained the same. The investor needed to know the size of the forward contract in advance. To keep the currency hedge effective, the investor would need to increase or decrease the size of the forward to match the value of the share.

As this example shows, currency hedging can be an active as well as an expensive process.

Hedging Strategy to Reduce Volatility

Because hedging has cost and can cap profits, it’s always important to ask: “why hedge”? For FX traders, the decision on whether to hedge is seldom clear cut. In most cases FX traders are not holding assets, but trading differentials in currency.

Protect yourself against a big loss

Hedging means coming up with a way to protect yourself against a big loss. When you buy car insurance, you’re protecting, or hedging, against the chance of having an expensive accident.

In forex, think of a hedge as getting insurance on your trade. Hedging is a way to reduce or cover the amount of loss you would incur if something unexpected happened.

Simple Forex Hedging

Some brokers allow you to place trades that are direct hedges. A direct hedge is when you are allowed to place a trade that buys one currency pair, such as USD/GBP. At the same time, you can also place a trade to sell the same pair.

While the net profit of your two trades is zero while you have both trades open, you can make more money without incurring additional risk if you time the market just right.

The Protection of a Hedge

A simple forex hedge protects you because it allows you to trade the opposite direction of your initial trade without having to close your initial trade. One can argue that it makes more sense to close the initial trade at a loss, and then place a new trade in a better spot. This example is one of the types of decisions you’ll make as a trader.

You could certainly close your initial trade, and then re-enter the market at a better price later. The advantage of using the hedge is that you can keep your first trade on the market and make money with a second trade that makes a profit as the market moves against your first position.

Undoing a Hedge

If you suspect that the market is going to reverse and go back in your initial trade’s favor, you can always place a stop-loss on the hedging trade, or just close it.

There are many methods for hedging forex trades, and they can get fairly complex. Many brokers do not allow traders to take directly hedged positions in the same account, so other approaches are necessary.

Multiple Currency Pairs

A forex trader can make a hedge against a particular currency by using two different currency pairs. For example, you could buy a long position in EUR/USD and a short position in USD/CHF. In this case, it wouldn’t be exact, but you would be hedging your USD exposure. The only issue with hedging this way is you are exposed to fluctuations in the Euro (EUR) and the Swiss (CHF).

This approach means if the Euro becomes a strong currency against all other currencies, there could be a fluctuation in EUR/USD that is not counteracted by your USD/CHF trade. Also, this method is generally not a reliable way to hedge unless you are building a complicated hedge that takes many currency pairs into account.

Forex Options

A forex option is an agreement to conduct an exchange at a specified price in the future. For example, say you buy a long trade position on EUR/USD at 1.30. To protect that position, you would place a forex strike option at 1.29.

This approach means that if the EUR/USD falls to 1.29 within the time specified for your option, you get paid out on that option. How much you get paid depends on market conditions when you buy the option and the size of the option. If the EUR/USD does not reach that price at the specified time, you lose only the purchase price of the option. The further from the market price, your option is at the time of purchase, the bigger the payout will be—if the price is hit within the specified timeframe.

Reasons to Hedge

The main reason that you want to use hedging on your trades is to limit risk. Hedging can be a bigger part of your trading plan if done carefully. It should only be used by experienced traders that understand market swings and timing. Playing with hedging without adequate trading experience could reduce your account balance to zero in no time at all.
