Buying and Selling at the Same Time – expert for MetaTrader 4

Let’s say that a trader enters the market with a buy and sell active
when a currency is at a level of, say, 100. The price then moves to 200.
The buy will
then be positive by 100 and the sell will be negative by 100. At this
point we start breaking trading rules. We cash in our positive buy and
the gain of
100 goes to our account. The sell is now carrying a loss of -100.

The grid system requires one to make sure that cash in on any
movement in the market. To do this, one would again enter into a buy and a
sell transaction.
Now, for convenience, let’s assume that the price moves back to level
100.

The second sell has now gone positive by 100 and the second buy
is carrying a loss of -100. According to the rules, one would cash the
sell in and another
100 will be added to your account. That brings the total cashed in at
this point to 200.

Now the first sell that remained active has moved from level 200 where it was -100 to level 100 where it is now breaking even.

The 4 transactions added together now magically show a gain:
1st buy cashed in +100, 2nd sell cashed in +100, 1st sell now breaking
even and the 2nd buy
is -100. This gives an overall a gain of 100 in total. We can liquidate
all the transactions and have some champagne.

There are many, many other market movements that turn this strange “buy and sell at the same time” activity into gains.
