  2. Enable the checkbox in the Hedge column of an underlying for all subportfolios whose deltas you want to hedge.

    To select all subportfolios, use the checkbox in the All Underlyings top row.

  3. When all contracts are selected, click the Hedge button in top right corner of the report.
  4. Define the hedge order attributes and click OK:
  5. The BasketTrader opens, and the legs of the order reflect the subportfolios you selected in the Risk Navigator.

The Total Quantity for each leg is identical to the delta for the subportfolio, with the Action set to the opposite side; if the delta is positive, the leg becomes a SELL order. If the delta is negative, the leg becomes a BUY order.
