The whole purpose of hedging is to protect the investor from risk, as much as possible. The hedge fund manager attempts to use portfolio hedging to decrease the portfolio's exposure to risk in the forex market. At the same time, the goal is to maximize capital growth through going long or short any specific currency. By having the ability to buy or sell profitably, the hedge fund manager maintains the balancing act of effective hedging.

Similarly, forex managed accounts are, relative to self-trading, a reasonably cautious entry into the vigorous world of forex trading. If any market demands sharp and creative hedging, it is the spot forex forum. Volatile and sometimes frenzied, this foreign currency exchange requires a broker who can apply reliable analytical tools to a seemingly wild marketplace.

Protect Portfolios

A good hedge fund manager must comprehend the workings of several markets, including commodities, securities, futures, and forex. Familiarity with the empirical principles of market analysis is a prerequisite for success in these financial forums. Above all, the intelligent money manager must take into account the client's wishes, financial resources, and tolerance for risk and loss.

A money manager's ultimate goal is protection of the client's portfolios from unnecessary exposure to risk. Hedging, along with proper diversification and positioning in the forex market, should lead to the growth of client investments. It is a commonplace warning that only sophisticated investors should participate in the spot forex market. If so, the forex broker and hedger must be a paragon of experience.
