    This is an assignment question and I need help.

    I have a company with a portfolio that mimics the ASX Small Ordinaries Index with value of $750 000 000 and I want to make sure that the value is the same after 6 months.

    What is the recommended hedging strategy for my company in the global financial crisis?

    I need an informed recommendation so any good websites?
  2. Assuming you are very new to trading, the answer is screamingly obvious. Short that amount of that index. That is the whole point of hedging and a large reason that futures exist (for hedging).
