What is Hedge?

Hedging is a way for investors to reduce risk exposure by opening positions in two instruments that are inversely correlated or that cancel each other out by some other means. Forwards and futures are popular among hedgers as they allow a price to be agreed with a buyer for an exchange that is deferred to a later date.
