    Dear sonali

    "Hedge" means to manage risk. Any given money manager may make an allocation/investment that could be described as speculative; if this same manager simultaneously makes an allocation to an allocation/investment specifically designed to balance or counter-act any negative performance from his speculative position then this would be his hedging position.

    There are many types of perceivable risk - Market, Interest rate, Inflation, Sectoral, Regional, Currency, etc. Hedge fund managers utilise the complete arsenal of financial weapons (holding cash, short selling, buying selling or swapping options, futures, commodity and/or currency futures, etc.) and are expert in concocting hedging positions for most conceivable risks.

      Hello LakshmiPathy

      First of all I would like to thank you for responding to Question.

      I have understood the situation on Day1 , Day2 & Day3. But I just wondered how the trader has made a profit of 25$ in his investment. What exactly is that Hedging?

      Please put it simpler to clarify it.

      Tons of Thanks
