thank you for that!
I think I did.not explain myself fully: I would never want to buy and sell AT THE SAME PRICE... The idea is that I can buy or sell something long-term but, in case of a temporary retracement later, I can add a short-term test position in the opposite direction and if the initial trend resumes I can lock in some profit, or if it reverses then I can close the original.trade.
This would help in choppy markets... I do not operate signals nor do I day-trade, so the only way for me to "monitor" an instrument is to be involved in trading it.
So, in answer to my original question: where can I alter the hedging functionality on My FXCM?
