Account Types

Hedged

Hedged accounts allow traders to:

Have both BUY and SELL positions open, for the same symbol, at the same time. Have multiple BUY, or SELL positions open, for the same symbol, at the same time

Netted

Netted accounts allow traders to:

Only have one position open, for the same symbol, at the same time. In this account type positions of a BUY or SELL direction will be closed by orders of the opposite direction

Examples:

Let’s assume a trader sends 3 orders in the following sequence:

  1. 100k BUY EURSUD
  2. 50K SELL EURUSD
  3. 50K SELL EURUSD

On a Hedged account after his orders are filled, he will have 3 positions.

  1. 100k BUY EURSUD
  2. 50K SELL EURUSD
  3. 50K SELL EURUSD

On a Netted Account he will have No positions, because:

  1. The first order will open a 100k EURUSD position
  2. The second order will close 50k out of his 100K EURUSD BUY position
  3. The third order will close the remaining 50k out of his 50k EURUSD BUY position.
