    OT: Question for Angrad about hedging strategies

    Wow, Angrad, thank you for posting such good stuff. I want to spend some time understanding each of the strategies you've laid out, but before I get there I just wanted to let you know I appreciate such effort in explaining all this to us!

    • Hey engie, if I were you I would stick to buying calls and puts. You're not going to make any money with any of these "hedging" strategies. "Nonlinear Regression or just low Volatility" -- that was a good one.

      • Not exactly. Like I said these opportunities are out there you just have to find them. I also believe it's important to know how Hedge Funds operate. So here are a list of terms you can google or watch on Youtube:

        Triangular Arbitrage, Fixed-Income Arbitrage, Currency Arbitrage, Merger Arbitrage, Dual Listed Securities, & Market Neutral.

        Are you going to realistically use all of these strategies? Probably not, but maybe one day you'll be talking to a friend that runs a Hedge Fund and he will say he uses Triangular Arbitrage and how it's so easy, and you can be like "Oh yeah, when you take a currency and exploit the exchange rates so that you always generate return." ;)

        Or on the flip side, maybe knowing these strategies will motivate you to find these opportunities and you'll be the friend talking about Triangular Arbitrage. :)
