Edge is an approach that is designed to give you an edge in your trading operations. Edge does so by highlighting days where you can expect strength or weakness.
Edge is best utilized as a secondary decision tool (primary decision being whether to buy/sell) to choose the best time to enter/exit a trade.
For example: Want to buy XYZ, why not do so on a weak day that is expected to be followed by a strong day.
