Learn to use futures to hedge a stock portfolio at the MoneyShow
The futures markets were created to enable farmers and ranchers to hedge their business activities. Further, stock index futures were created to offer portfolio managers an efficient means of hedging; yet, most market participants are purely speculating. Join us as we go back to the basics by looking at the E-mini and Micro E-mini stock index futures vehicles for hedging rather than speculating. We will also discuss a portfolio hedge that involves very little out of pocket expense using a combination of long put options and short call options.
