Hedging Trading Strategy

Hello ,
Due to New NFA Hedging Policy, don't be so panic.
As We are not allowed open Hedge Position in our Account, but still another way Protect(BY -Hedge) our open position:
1. Open trade at another Currency , if our first trade in EURUSD second will GBPUSD, or if our - first trade in AUDUSD then the second will Gold vs USD.
2. Open trade at same Currency but at Another Account.
3. Open trade at another Platform, not Singular Trading Platform.
4. Readjusting Our EA if we use Automatic Trading System
There always another ways.

The End of Hedging Trading Strategies History

Offsetting Transactions

New Compliance Rule 2-43(b) requires an FDM to offset positions in a customer account on a first-in, first-out basis, thereby prohibiting a trading practice commonly referred to as "hedging." A customer may, however, direct the FDM to offset same-size transactions even if there are older transactions of a different size. Rule 2-43(b) is effective for any positions established after May 15, 2009. Offsetting positions that were established prior to the effective date do not have to be liquidated, but once either position is closed out after May 15, it may not be reestablished as a hedge.
