Smashing False Breakouts

Smash through frustrating false breakouts, stop taking low quality trades and slash those painful drawdowns

Have you ever entered a trade in a beautifully trending market - just to experience an immediate market reversal, followed by a quick, painful and totally unexpected loss?

Then you were a ‘victim’ of a false breakout.  

In 2015, I experienced a very unexpected trading pain and frustration.  

After making a lot of money in beautifully trending markets in 2014, and taking a 100-day cruise around the World on the 'Costa Deliziosa' cruise ship, I was convinced that my trading luck would last forever, and money would keep piling into my trading account quickly and easily.  

But against all my expectations - something went wrong.  

Painfully wrong.  

All of sudden, a lot of my trading strategies started losing money - and pretty fast.  

Many of my trades at the beginning of 2015 looked like this:  

...A regular market breakout entry into a nicely moving market...  

... then suddenly the market move stopped unexpectedly, reversed and...  

...hit my stop-loss hard.  

But it wasn’t just my stop-losses being hit hard...  

It was also my confidence, and I was really starting to hurt.  

So, I started investigating.  

All my breakout strategies were robust, passing all of my extremely tough robustness testing procedures - so overfitting or over optimization was out of the question.  

The problem had to be somewhere else.  

And in fact, it was a very simple one:  

The markets had stopped moving.  

But my breakout trading strategies kept trading as if nothing had changed.  

As a results - the majority of my breakout entries started turning into false breakout entries.  

My trades had no chance.  

One false breakout after another, as a neverending story of money disappearing from my trading account. 

It was ‘death by a thousand cuts’.  

At that time, I finally started paying more attention to the biggest danger for all breakout traders (no matter what market, timeframe or volatility you trade):  

False breakouts.  

And if you know what I’m talking about, you're not alone.  

Far from it.  

Breakout traders from all around the world confirm: False breakouts are the #1 challenge, pain and frustration for breakout traders

In 2017, BetterTraderAcademy.com conducted a survey of breakout traders and asked them a simple question:  

"When it comes to breakout trading, what is the single biggest challenge, frustration or problem that you’ve been struggling with?”  

398 traders from the US, Europe, Australia and Asia participated in the survey.  

The result?  

False breakouts were the most mentioned obstacle, exceeding any other breakout trading challenge by a long way.

These traders had different levels of trading experience, were trading different markets, different timeframes, different strategies, and using different software - yet, were experiencing the same, universal challenge again and again: 

False breakouts.  

Here are just a few examples from the survey (exactly as written by the participants): 

"My biggest challenge when it comes to breakout strategies are "fakeouts", which means breakouts that seem to occur, trigger my trades, but then come back and hit my stoploss - if you could explain how you avoid "fakeouts" then this would help a lot!"

- Frustrated breakout trader #74, Trading Level: Intermediate


"Differentiating from a false breakout and from a premature breakout which pulls back like a false breakout and then develops into a true breakout."

- Frustrated breakout trader #198, Trading Level: Beginner


"Find the right breakout point to participate from the beginning of the move while not being whipsawed by false breakouts."

- Frustrated breakout trader #246, Trading Level: Advanced


"1) False breakouts 2) trade in profit and then deciding whether to take the profit if price pulls back to test the BO level or to stay in the trade"

- Frustrated breakout trader #273, Trading Level: Intermediate


"false breakouts, would like to be able to trade outside bars at S&R but do not know how to scan them in ThinkOrSwim"

- Frustrated breakout trader #315, Trading Level: Intermediate


(Note: 398 traders from around the world participated in the survey, traders from all levels of experience.)

Quite frankly, reading all of the replies - I’m not surprised.  

False breakouts are one of the hardest challenges to overcome in breakout trading.  

Hi, my name is Tomas Nesnidal, and I’ve literally spent thousands of hours researching false breakouts 

My friends simply call me “Tom”.  

I am a full-time breakout trader, running my own breakout trading hedge fund since 2017.  

I live in the south of Spain (Andalucia) and I’ve been very lucky to have traveled to 64 different countries, while making my primary income from fully automated breakout trading (the popular magazine “Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities even published my success story as a 3-page article in the June 2016 issue, called “Around The World In Trading Days”).  

My breakout trading research, techniques, concepts and ideas have been published on many trading-related media, including:

But it wasn't easy.  

During my trading journey I had to deal with a lot of very challenging obstacles, and false breakouts was one of the biggest ones.  

Now, with the help of BetterTraderAcademy.com, for the very first time, I have the opportunity to share my best, cutting-edge techniques to smashing false breakouts.  

To give you the final answers to questions like:

  • How can I stop false and premature breakouts hurting my trading account? 
  • How can I stop false breakouts in high volatility? 
  • How can I minimize false breakouts with more precise and accurate breakout timing? 
  • How can I accurately detect the market mood and environment to completely avoid false breakouts and only trade in the most favorable market conditions?  

What’s the solution to smashing false breakouts quickly and easily?

It’s all about the timing - smarter and dramatically better timing.

The more precise your timing is on entry, the less false breakouts you will experience.  

But market timing can be really tricky.  

It took me many years to formulate, analyze and test hundreds of different techniques for better timing.  

After literally thousands of hours, I was finally able to isolate 12 of the most robust, powerful and universal techniques, and structure them into 4 different levels, creating a pyramid of laser-focused timing I call 'the breakout timing pyramid'.

For each level I designed 3 very powerful strategies to dramatically reduce false breakouts. 

That is 12 ground-breaking techniques that you can implement into your existing trading strategies in minutes - and start seeing a reduction in false breakouts almost instantly.  

Just consider:  

  • More money,
  • Smaller drawdowns,
  • Higher average trade,  
  • Better profit factor,
  • And an improved Net Profit to Maximum Drawdown ratio for more stable trading income.  

Here is just one example of a 5-minute improvement using one of my false breakout smashing techniques:  

This is just ONE technique, that shows an increase in Net Profit, Profit Factor, Average Trade and NetProfit to Drawdown Ratio, while also producing lower Drawdowns.  

Sure, this example is not a killer strategy that'll make you a millionaire overnight, but its a great improvement to the quality of the trades, so imagine what this technique could do for your own strategies!

And this isn't even my best technique.  

Now imagine if you owned all 12 of my techniques.  

How much would your trading, and potentially even your life change?

  • Technique #1 - Twisted DOW. This technique can be implemented in less than 5 minutes, and with most of your strategies you will see immediate results. The technique uses my own, extremely important and powerful twist to a generally well known approach. A twist that makes all the difference and most traders don't even know about it!  
  • Technique #2 - Dynamic Twisted DOW. With this advanced version you will learn a completely new trick that took me a while to figure out. You will move from static trading to dynamic trading and see how much of a difference this shift can make.  
  • Technique #3 - Higher Picture Deployment. General timing is all about the higher picture mainly. Once you discover how to assess and use the higher picture of the market behaviour, the timing of your entries will improve immediately and false breakouts will start diminishing really fast.  
  • Practical walkthrough in TradeStation. Step-by-step walkthrough of the code, workspaces and techniques directly in TradeStation (and to make it even easier to understand the code and logic if you need to code them into any other trading platform quickly and easily).

  • Technique #6: Trade order and entry bar quality filtering. A slightly more advanced approach. This time we deal with better timing directly at the entry level itself (which is still part of system level timing). You will discover how just a simple change of market order can make a big difference.  
  • Practical walkthrough in TradeStation. Step-by-step walkthrough of the code, workspaces and techniques directly in TradeStation (and to make it even easier to understand the code and logic if you need to code them into any other trading platform quickly and easily).

  • Technique #10: Market Quality Switch. A powerful switch that will show you how to detect trending and non-trending market quality and filter false breakouts in each market quality individually. For many traders just the concept of Market Quality itself will be a groundbreaking concept, truly priceless.

This technique will show you an effective way to do this. You’ll learn how to cut your losses way sooner, before your stop-loss is even hit.
