Double barrier options provide risk managers with good-deal flexibility in tailoring portfolio returns.Their hedges offer full protection only if unwound along the barriers.This work provides non-dynamic hedges that project the risk of double barriers on to single barriers.Non-dynamic hedges overcome bulky transaction costs due to dynamic hedging trades.That projection implies that two single barriers written on the double barrier corridor extrema are often a comfortable, even if imperfect, hedge.Such a hedge is simple and gives automatic protection along the barriers.Automatic protection overcomes trading issues along the barriers.
