What is hedging?
Hedging is a risk management strategy used to protect against potential price fluctuations in commodities or financial assets. It involves taking offsetting positions in derivative contracts to reduce or eliminate the impact of price volatility on a company's bottom line.
Hedging should be done with a goal in mind; that goal is a combination of hedges that efficiently remove risk and keep your financial goals attainable.
