Résumé :

Chances are you likely had a successful year in thestock market .

Despite all the gloom and doom ranging from "Fiscal Cliff" fears to the threat of a globalrecession , your portfolio has probably weathered the storm, showing solid profits for 2012. On average, the S&P 500 gained about 15% last year.

However, theeconomy is not out of the danger zone yet. There is still much uncertainty about the rest of the world's economic troubles..

This fact forces the question: Should you take profits now or keep holding withspeculation the upward momentumwill continue?

This is quite a dilemma for investors sitting on a profitable portfolio. You don't want to see your profits wither away, but you also don't want give up on additionalupside by booking profits prematurely.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this quandary. It's calledhedging .

Hedging is the opening of positions in the opposite direction of the portfolio to protect yourinvestments fromdownside risk , while keeping the potential for additional upside.

Hedging was once the province of only institutions and very sophisticated investors who would buy options andfutures tohedge against their current holdings. But trading options and futures requires precise timing, special future and options accounts, and involves its own high-risk factors.

This is where exchange-tradedfunds ( ETFs ) come in. ETFs provide average investors like you and me with the right tools to protect our portfolio from heavy downside risk. It is no longer a must to open a risky futures or options account to hedge your portfolio. ETFs can easily be traded within your regular stock account without the hassle of using differentbrokers and accounts.
