Thank you for the explanation. I now realize what you were trying to say.
The broker should not be a problem. You could keep the trades open for some extra minutes. In that way the broker will think it is a "normal" trade.
However I see another problem. The values become erratic during news-times (NFP, CPI, Tradebalance, etc). In that case you could lose a lot of money when automated.
The thread topic is hedging, but .. lets talk about arbitrage .
The main problem that could rise .. in my opinion:
In arbitrage we need to buy/sell 3 currency pairs simultaneously. But it can be difficult. Very often discrepancies between main pair and synthetic pair lasts just for few seconds.
Lets look at example:
EURUSD jumps 4 pips down, and now we want to sell EURCHF and buy EURUSD and USDCHF. We or expert advisor are giving the command. But in that time EURUSD jumps 2 pips down. And the result is: we have 2 open positions short EURCHF, long USDCHF and ONE REQUOTE. And what to do now?
JosTheelen, is this what you mean by lose a lot of money during news time? or something else? However I think that this system are not suitable for news time, so you just need to avoid opening or closing positions during news time.
sorry, made mistake in previous post:
EURUSD jumps 4 pips down, and now we want to sell EURCHF and buy EURUSD and USDCHF. We or expert advisor are giving the command. But in that time EURUSD jumps 2 pips down.

Yes, but it is only one of the problems. Because everything moves so fast, it could be 20 pips difference. Or one of the trades is not filled in by the broker.
And how do you avoid news times? Sometimes unimportant news can cause big spikes, so will you avoid all news? And news can be a press-conference, which takes 15 minutes. How do you know that the news is ended? My problem is that newsevents can be unpredictable, both in time as in effect. And the effect can be a big loss, compared to the small profits you gain normally.
Maybe you are right, however some pairs are more stable than others.
I will now make adjusments to my arbitrage expert. It will log when the difference occurs between pair and synthetic pair and when the difference ends. I will post results here.

Working for/in a hedge-fund as a trader
Hi all, i was thinking, what if i want to work for a hedge-fund and trade others people money, where i can go, which who i have to talk ?
How can i get in touch with a hedge-fund ?
Have you ever thinked about work for a hedge-fund and trade high quantity of money ?
Talk to me. What do you have to offer?
Im trying to understand what hedging is. Is this it:
take for example company A and company B.
These two companies are in negative correlation. so when A goes up B goes down.
So suppose theres a news, share price of company A goes up but the news does not effect company B that much (so it goes down not as much), so then we make money, because gain in long position on company A is greater than the loss in short position in company B.
Similarly, if its a bad news for company A, then company A will go down little but company B will shoot down much more. So gain in company B is greater than loss in Company A.
Do any corrency pairs work in this way?
