Hedging This is an optional feature, and although it may be convenient to enter hedged trades at the same time, we do not recommend the usage of the feature to our clients. You should be aware of the various factors that could affect your account balance as a result of executing such hedged trades, such as:

- Possible negative spread (i.e. rollover charges may be higher than rollover accruals) if hedged positions are held overnight; or
- You will be subject to twice the usual trading cost when closing these hedged trades.

Please note that you will only be required to hold margin for one side of the hedged part of your trades.

It will be your responsibility to continually monitor your positions, and Trade will be not liable for any loss or damage, including without limitation to, any loss of profit, which may arise directly or indirectly from use of this feature.
