Enduring Edge

Anyone can win a few trades randomly. Tipsters can always show you some big winners and conveniently hide their losers. Luck is not an edge in the market. Edge is all about finding trades after trades that are profitable and pulling out money from the Market day after day.

The first step to trading consistency is to find an edge in the Market. If you want to be a successful trader, you need to build an "Enduring edge". An enduring edge is something permanent and will not change over time. In other words, it is structural and is based on some fundamental understanding of how Market works. It is rooted in the behavior of the Market.

The easier way is to build your trading method around some proven behavior of the Market. There are so many Market Anomalies on which you can work. These are thoroughly researched and statistically proven concepts. All the profitable methods are developed around these proven anomalies. Focus on something that is applicable to your time frame and work on it.

My trading method is built around Price Flips which is a very basic character of all the Auction Markets. An understanding of price flips will enable an enterprising person to formulate any number of satisfactory trading tactics on this.

Do not make the mistake of ignoring this topic and running behind the new indicator . Take a New Years resolution NOW to work on a proven market anomaly and to find an Enduring Edge.


  1. Very well said. thanks for your valuable posting's...

  2. Speaking about "market anomalies"

    One of the simplest market anomaly is demand/supply mismatch. That is where trends originate. I am surprised why majority miss this important point. I think many are busy in watching indicators, patterns etc. and that is why they miss it

  3. Dear Sir,
    Can you elaborate how to use price flips while trading your method, viz., during entries/exits, trade management?

    All support/Resistance zones are probable flips. DPs are major zones.
    For example consider a BPB of PDH. Once price breaks the level, we anticipate the level to act as support on the way down and try to buy the pullback to this zone.
    While we are in a trade we trail our stop behind minor flips to protect our profit
