Hedging (hedge - insurance, guarantee) - insurance, minimization and neutralization of financial risks from the loss of client funds by us taking one or a combination of opposite positions on a given contract on the exchange.
The main goal of hedging is to protect against potential losses, and not to generate potential profits:
If the price of your product on the market decreases, then the sold contract will compensate for the drop in the price of the physical product.
If the price of your product rises, then the losses from the sold your contract will be compensated by the rise in price of the physical product.
High level of service
Safe and insured account
Transparency of transactions and commissions
Coincidence of interests of the company and the client
The client contacts our company in order to avoid financial losses and reduce financial risks in his business. A specialist of our company makes a hedging model for the client and discusses with him how to achieve the maximum return on capital based on the client's industry and time interval. The client opens a trading account with our broker. After opening an account, our company will perform trading operations according to a model previously agreed with the client with the desired exchange asset. The client will be able to control his account online. When the deal is closed, the client can withdraw all or part of the money from his trading account to his bank account, as a rule, the money is received in 1 day and there are no restrictions on the amounts.
Examples of hedging for business
The company, which imports, expects the delivery of cars from Germany in the amount of 500,000 euros during the quarter. The company only has dollars on its account and it will have to convert them into euros in its bank. Based on the calculation of costs and future profits, the company is satisfied with the current euro exchange rate. But the importer now does not want to buy euros for the entire amount of the contract and thereby conserve his funds, but does not want to lose on a possible change in the exchange rate.
Therefore, with the help of our company, he decides to reduce (hedge) his risks from the rise in the price of the euro. In this case, our company buys EUR.USD (buy euros, sell dollars) in the amount of 500,000 euros.
The company expects several deliveries of raw materials abroad during the quarter with payment of 1,000,000 euros. However, the exporting company prefers to keep its funds in dollars, so it will have to convert the received euros into dollars. If the exporting company is currently satisfied with the exchange rate of the euro against the dollar, and the exporter himself is afraid of a change in the exchange rate in the future, which will lead to losses during the delivery of the goods due to a change in the exchange rate itself, then our company opens sales at EUR.USD (sell euros and buy dollars) at once for the entire amount of the contract, and then close it in parts, depending on the amount of each batch of goods.
Farmers have grown wheat and want stability and confidence in the future. But, all farmers, and their clients, depend on the market price of wheat, which they cannot predict. The inability to predict with any probability the financial future of the economy and business leads you to insurance (hedging).
If the harvest is good, the price of wheat at harvest will fall; and if the harvest is bad, the market price of wheat will rise. The farmer is not satisfied with such ignorance.
So, no matter what the outcome will be in the future, during the wheat harvest, the farmer and the client will complete the transaction at a pre-agreed price.
There are 3 options at harvest time:
The market price is higher than the agreed price: the farmer is not happy, but is obliged to sell his wheat to the client, and the client is glad that he buys rice cheaper than elsewhere
The market price for wheat is lower than the previously agreed price: the farmer is happy that he sells at a higher price, and the client could buy at the market, but gave his word that he would buy from the farmer and pay more.
The market price does not differ from the agreed one: all with their own.
Our company will remove the risks of price changes and keep the manufacturer's products at the price he needs.
