Looking for Stock Trader pal

I do some active stock/options trading and I used to have a good friend we would discuss via Skype all day about investment, cry over our positions talk about earnings futures.

He unfortunately busted his account and I am left without a trading pal

Anyone here day trade that would like to hook-up via skype maybe a trader's group?

Only people without actual positions would be interesting.

Hi Profetas,


I day trade futures (ES), so you and I are not a good mix. But I wish you good luck in finding someone.


It is really nice to be able to share the ups and downs with a trading pal.


Happy hunting!

Re: Looking for Stock Trader pal

Hi there!


Do any of you use hedges or partially correlated hedges?


I was reading another forum where some people were raving about it, but to me the logic seems at least partially flawed.


Does anyone have any experience in this area?

Have done some hedging in this volatile market and it has been successful. Timing is everything!

Re: Looking for Stock Trader pal

Hi Agent 86,

Thanks for getting back so quickly!

Perhaps you would be so kind as to improve my understanding?!

When I think of hedging, I think of an asset, that I want to protect the value of. So, for example, I expect to receive some GBP in 3 months time when a debt is repaid, but my general expenses are in CHF. If I am worried about the volatility, I would enter into a forward contract to fix the GBPCHF rate so I know how much CHF I will receive.

This is my basic understanding of the aim of hedging and is like an insurance policy. If you used an option instead of a forward contract you would also have the possibility of making a profit.

Is there anything else? I have the feeling that I am missing something? How do you use hedging in your work?

Regards

PilotP
