In layman’s words, having an edge means having a strategy or an approach or resources that differentiate you from your competition. But if you do not have the edge, the business may not survive. Trading edge is an approach that creates cash advantage for a trader over other market players. While there are many ways to build a trading edge, some traders have not even heard of this approach. Some traders even spend years to find a trading edge in trading strategies and discretionary methods. Perhaps, the best way for a trader to find an edge is by capitalising his existing technical skills. A trader may make profits in the short-term without a trading edge, but without an edge it is not possible in the long term. A set of conditions that is likely to result in a net gain when used over a large number of trades, can be perhaps defined as trading edge. A single trade cannot be reflective of a trading edge, however a series of trades can help traders identify it. More
