IS HEDGING ALLOWED?

You are free to hedge your positions on your trading account. Hedging takes place when you open a LONG and a SHORT position on the same instrument simultaneously. When you open a BUY and a SELL position on the same instrument and in the same lot size, the margin is 1 position.

However, when you open a BUY and a SELL position on a CFD of the same type and lot size, the margin is only needed once.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 64.29% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. Read our Risk Disclosure.
