Orbex allows clients to open positions in the opposite direction of previously opened positions in the trading account, to reduce loss and to decide later when to enter the market.
Hedging an instrument by its corresponding Future OTC contract is forbidden (for swap-free accounts), because this represents an attempt to take advantage of the swap free facility and gain profits from swaps, one direction of this kind of hedge must be closed immediately. If the client fails to take action to avoid such practices, Orbex will, unfortunately, be required to close or take other action (by deducting the swaps retroactively or any other means) on these accounts without further notice.
Hedged positions will be held in the trading account without affecting the required margin value, since the required margin is calculated for each instrument according to the net positions opened at a specific moment.
The Company reserves the rights and at its sole discretion to close or partialy close any hedged position kept by the clients for a long period without priot notice to the clients
