What is Hedging ?
A hedge is an investment that is made for the reason of reducing the risk of adverse price movements in an asset. Normally, Hedging consists of taking an offsetting or opposite position in a related security.
For most investors, Hedging will never come into play in their financial activities. Many investors are not really likely to trade a derivative contract at any point. Part of the reason for this is that investors with a long-term strategy, such as those individuals saving for retirement, tend to ignore the day-to-day fluctuations of a given security. In these cases, little(short-term) fluctuations are not critical because an investment will likely grow with the total market.
