SIF: Example of how hedge-funds operate

The strategy described on the chart is simple. First i'll take a long position to target the last high. From that point i'll take a short position which is exactly the same size as my long position. This means that from that point it doesn't matter what the market will do next, because I have my profit locked between these 2 points. I would preferably see price to then break the last high, so i could add another buy above it. If price gets back to the entry point of my short position, I simply close the extra long, and will not have any negative effect on my profit.

The advantage of hedging your position is that: 1. You'll have no risk from that point, if done correctly. 2. You could add positions if the market continues to surge and make extra profit. 3. No one knows what the market is going to do, it's always a process of probability. So if the price does go up to the last high, and then crashes down, I'm still risk free and could even add more short positions to it.

You could also hedge by going long in one stock, and short another stock which is correlated to the one you went long. You then expect one stock to do better than the other.
