The quantitative solution to beating the benchmark.

Using market structure for better trading returns with lower risk.

Market Structure EDGE is the first decision-support analytics platform for traders to use market structure — the rules governing how stocks trade – for portfolio shaping. EDGE gives traders simple proprietary metrics to effectively manage short-term risk and identify opportunities to increase the probability of market-beating returns. Developed by the founders of ModernIR, nationally recognized market-structure experts and the market leaders in quantitative behavioral equity analytics for US-listed companies, Market Structure EDGE is the performance advantage for any trader, long or short, quantitative or fundamental.

Decision-support Pillars: Market Structure Sentiment™ and Short Volume

What’s Market Structure Sentiment™?

Market Structure Sentiment™ measures the way the rules governing stock-trades signal opportunity or risk. It’s not headlines, not mass psychology or how research analysts rate stocks. It’s a 10-point scale metering how stocks move from Oversold to Overbought.

What’s Short Volume?

Short volume is the percentage of trading volume driven by borrowed rather than owned shares. All volume is long or short. Generally (central tendency only), short volume over 50% hinders gains, while short volume below 50% is better.

Use fundamentals or technicals, or your quantitative methods. Then use Market Structure EDGE to improve your exits and entries.

 

Beat the market by understanding it.

Q & A

Is Market Structure EDGE Timing the Market?

EDGE challenges the notion that buy-and-hold produces superior returns, but it’s not market-timing. Rather, EDGE helps you reduce exposure to stocks statistically likely to underperform and increase your exposure to ones likely to outperform — which has nothing to do with fundamentals. Stocks rise and fall most often on supply/demand factors. Market Structure Sentiment™ is a 10-point scale tracking the nexus of supply and demand under market rules.

How does EDGE Differ From Technical Analysis?

If you like technical analysis, great! Use Market Structure EDGE to validate entry or exit points. EDGE is behavioral and quantitative. It’s not driven by prices or volume or moving averages. It reflects how machines set prices and when machines change behavior. More than 90% of trades today are algorithmic — machine-driven. EDGE turns that reality to your advantage, letting you see via Market Structure Sentiment™ how machine behavior changes.

Market Structure EDGE has redefined the way I look at the markets. Much the way Copernicus taught us the earth isn’t the center of the universe, Tim Quast has shown us [active] investors don’t set equity prices. Who does? The team at Market Structure EDGE can teach you. I’ve worked with Tim and his team as both a public company CFO (in his Modern IR product) and signed up for EDGE once it was released. If you want to understand market structure, how it affects price, and profit from it, EDGE is a bargain at $99/month.

As a long term investor, I dollar cost average into a few stocks each paycheck. Instead of buying the stocks every second Friday, I use EDGE to time my entries - I've been saving 3-5% each purchase since I started using the platform.

A friend suggested Market Structure EDGE. Based on a variety of mathematical factors with statistical probability it predicts the short-term direction in stock price. Using a set of filters, I can select an equity that is likely to go up in the near term while eating my oatmeal. Then I place a trade with a limit price and check EDGE on subsequent days to determine if it is time to exit. It is that simple. I have been utilizing EDGE for two months now and I reliably achieve returns over a few days of 2-10%. I recently began investing larger portions of assets in index mutual funds based on the overall Market Structure Sentiment in EDGE. When it bottoms, I buy. When it tops, I sell.

I've been using Market Structure EDGE for several months now. The training videos really helped me understand the market principles that EDGE uses to help guide my decisions. I sometimes compare research analyst reports in my E*Trade account to see what they think about a stock. But time and time again, the fundamentals used by EDGE are proving more reliable than most of the analysts' reports. I log in a couple of times a week and see if I should move in or out of a stock. So far all of my returns have been positive, ranging from 3% to 27% on stocks that I typically hold less than 3 weeks. I know that I'm bound to pick a dud now and then, but EDGE has really helped improve my odds of picking winners.

I am intrigued by the EDGE angle, and Tim’s quantitative way of thinking about investing while factoring in stock-consumer Sentiment. It’s like he has created an alternative universe! We needed this. Now that he is sharing this strategy with us, I couldn’t resist the offer of a free trial! After just 5 days, I signed up for his more intelligent way of stock-selection. Finally I am free of picking stocks based on price-valuation. Now I can sit back and let the EDGE deliver the decision-making for me.

My TSLA call options expired Feb 19.  Worked out well for me. Thanks for the assistance in understanding what falling TSLA Sentiment and rising Short Volume indicated – probable pressure on TSLA. Thanks, TQ and team for the great math, data, and insight into what really moves the markets.

99/month is not pricey at all. EDGE is invaluable in my opinion. My profits using EDGE consistently and significantly outweigh the cost of the product. I wish you'd offer a lifetime membership.
