2. Essence of hedging

Hedging mainly consists of two parts of profit.

1) Fund arbitrage

Take the BTCUSD trading pair as an example, invest in 1000USDT.

Step 1: 1000USDT, buy 0.02BTC spot (if the current BTC price is 50,000USDT);

Step 2: transfer 0.02BTC from currency account to contract account;

Step 3: choose BTCUSD currency standard contract and issue 0.02BTC blank order.

After completing the above three steps, the fund fee can be charged three times at 8:00, 16:00 and 24:00 respectively every day.


2) Arbitrage of price difference

Take the BTCUSD trading pair as an example, purchase] 1000USDT.

If the current spot price is 50000 USDT and the contract price has premiered to 51000 USDT, and the futures and spot prices are consistent at the end of the closing arbitrage, there will be an extra arbitrage of price difference when closing the position, arbitrage = (51000-50000) * 0.02=20USDT (service fee excluded).

It is recommended to open hedging when the market fluctuation is small.

3) The loss caused by the negative premium of the contract, for example, the spot purchase price is 50000 USDT and the current contract price is 49,000USDT, then hedging will be opened at this time, and the 1BTC position will result in a price premium loss of 1000U. It is recommended to open hedging when the contract is at a positive premium and avoid hedging at a negative premium.

4) Losses caused by currency trading, contract suspension or quantitative procedures caused by other reasons or force majeure, resulting in outstanding positions or inability to sell.
