An asymmetric trading system is one that treats the entry and exit differently, so it applies a different method for entry (to buy) than it does for the exit (to sell). For example, it may buy a currency, bond, stock, or commodity above the 200 day moving average, but it sells if the price falls below the 50 day moving average.
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 totally different method than the one it uses to enter. For example, I enter with a directional price indicator and exit with an unrelated risk management system.
