An asymmetric trading system is one that applies a different method for entry (to buy) than it does for the exit (to sell).
We apply a different system for entry and exit is because prices trend up differently than they trend down.
Asymmetric trading systems may have an entry signal that is different from the exit signal. In fact, an asymmetric trading system may exit a position applying a different method than the one it uses to enter. For example, I may enter with a directional price indicator and exit with an unrelated risk management system.
