Two position accounting models

Netting and hedging accounts for effective investment.

  • Netting

    In the netting model, you can open only one position in an investment instrument. If you attempt to open one more order in the same instrument, either both transactions will be closed, or the volume of the existing position will be changed, or the existing position will reverse in the opposite direction.

  • Hedging

    Using the hedging model, you can open several positions in the same instrument in different directions, in case there is enough margin for opening and maintaining them.

When opening a new R Trader account, you can choose one of these position accounting models.

  • How to invest in Stocks on R Trader?

    Example of Buying Facebook Stock:

    1. Choose a particular asset.

    For example, you're interested in investing in Facebook stocks. The price is currently 116.88/117.03 USD.

    2. Sell or buy.

    You choose to buy 50 stocks at the offer price 117.03, because you believe the market will rise (otherwise you could sell at the bid price 116.88 if you believe the market will fall).

    3. Commission and margin

    In this example, your total exposure is 50 stocks x 117.03 (buy price) = 5,851.5 USD.

    There is a commission: 0.015 USD per stock, minimum = 1.5 USD. Therefore, the commission for opening a position = 1.5 USD.

    The margin required on Facebook stocks is 5%, so to open this transaction you would need to have 5,851.5 USD x 5% = 292.57 USD in your account (or the equivalent in other currency).

    4. Closing your trade.

    Over the course of the day, the market rises, and Facebook stock price is 132.52/132.67 USD. You choose to close your trade at the price 132.52. The commission for closing position = 1.5 USD.

    5. Calculating Profit/Loss

    Profit / loss is calculated based on the difference between your opening and closing prices, in points.

    In this case: 132.52 – 117.03 = 15.49 USD.

    You bought 50 stocks, and the market moved in your favor.

    Therefore, your gross profit is 50 * 15.49 = 774.5 USD.

  • How does the netting position accounting model differ from the hedging one?

    Netting

    The netting position accounting model allows you to have only one open position in an investment instrument. Conditions for any investment instrument using the netting model:

    • You can’t open two positions in different directions (short and long) of the same volume – they will close each other.
    • If the volume of your new long position is bigger than your existing short position (or vice versa), the existing position will reverse in the opposite direction.
    • If the volume of your new long position is smaller than your existing short position (or vice versa), the existing position volume will reduce by the opposite position volume.
    • Open orders in the same direction are summarized.

    In any case, there will always be only one position in an investment instrument.

    Hedging

    The hedging account allows you to open as many positions in the same instrument in different directions as you want, in case there is enough margin for opening and maintaining them.

    If you work with the hedging accounting model and already have an open position in some instrument and want to open a new one, you will just get another open position. Unlike the netting model, in the hedging model opening a new position has no influence on existing ones.
