Tacticalspreads – The Kennedy Hedge
ABOUT THE KENNEDY HEDGE
The Kennedy Hedge is designed to be a cost-less way to add crash protection to your portfolio. Note that this trade will not help in mild corrective markets. See our other trades for setups that take advantage of corrections. This trade will kick in hard in a crash and offer profit to offset losses as well as significant margin boost to counteract exploding margin requirements and forced liquidations at inopportune times.

WHY EMPLOY THE KENNEDY HEDGE?
This strategy is designed to protect against black-swan market events (fast, hard, crashes and/or mini-crashes). Specifically, the benefits are:
Profit from a crash
Large margin boost during crash, preventing forced liquidation at market bottoms
Cost-less during almost all market conditions
Tactical Spreads was formed in 2016 as an alternative to the hundreds of websites offering alert services using the same trades (iron condor on index – marketing always suggests making 5-10% every month. They fail to mention losing 80% occasionally) and churning the same audience. Our trades are different – They are adaptable, robust, tested, and they work in most market conditions. For any new trade, we construct an idea, backtest the idea and rules, then vet the trade plan through a small team to tear it apart, then backtest it some more, and then create a course for it while we trade it live, and then we launch. If it doesn’t perform to spec, we scrap it.
