Combination Hedging

A risk management strategy that uses a combination of hedges using different derivative instruments. For example straight run fueloil may be hedged by a certain combination of Brent futures and gasoil paper (futures or swaps).


Contracts for differences, basically a crude paper swap based on short time periods, a week. Price is crude dated related. Tool to hedge crude and lock in a small timing difference. CFD timings are available as from 1 week after dated crude up to 6 weeks after dated crude. After those six weeks the market uses Brent futures for hedging purposes. With a CFD as hedging tool one can also hedge a couple of cents result when you buy on 5 days pricing window and sell on a 3 day pricing window in a backwardated market. So every cent counts in trading crude and again ‘time is money'.

Rolling Position

When a physical position is hedged with futures and that position will stay for a longer time then obviously the futures being used to hedge might expire in the futures market. As the meaning of the futures position was to hedge the physical position, one needs to liquidate the prompt futures position and take a new futures position based on the forward months contract. By this the physical position is still hedged but now with another futures month contract. The futures hedge has been rolling from one to the other month. Traders like to role from one month to the other at highest spread in contango markets and at minimum spreads in backwardated markets.
