Hedge The Market With HDGE ETF

  • Apart from having a substantial amount of cash in a portfolio, hedging isn’t easy as these instruments lose value in a positive market.

  • However, we consider here a useful hedging instrument that shorts shares of companies with suspect earnings quality and/or aggressive accounting.
