Price Advantage Model - 

The model is pretty simple and it follows the

70. Enter / Exit Below Your Break-Even Level - Here

This model shows that you can enter and exit trades before your break-even levels and the result is if you bought low and sold higher, you made money even though you we not at your break-even price. 

Example of a trade - 

Enter long 5 ES at 3805.00

Add 5 more at 3800.00 now long 10 at 3802.50

Market drops to 3798.00, You buy 5 at 3798.00

Then here is how it works ->

You sell 5 at 3800.00 - You just made 2 points from 3798.00 to 3800.00

Now the market drops to 3798 again. You buy 5 more and d the same, sell 5 at 3800.00. You just made 2 points again. 

The price advantage is being able to see where you last exited and if the current price is NOW better. 

The execution tab shows you this data and we can see where the price level of our last exit(s) and we can see that the market is at a PRICE ADVANTAGE again to jump back in. 

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.


If we don't see a price advantage, then we wait to see this to re-enter, otherwise the market is going in our direction.
