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.
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. They traded different markets and different timeframes. They used different strategies, and different software. Yet, they were all experiencing the same, universal challenge again and again:
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 the replies - I’m not surprised.
False breakouts are one of the hardest challenges to overcome in breakout trading.
I am a full-time breakout trader, running my own breakout trading hedge fund since 2017.
My breakout trading techniques and ideas are published on many popular trading websites and magazines, including:
During my trading journey I had to deal with a lot of very challenging obstacles. False breakouts was one of the biggest ones.
Now, with the help of BetterTraderAcademy.com, I can share my best, cutting-edge techniques to smashing false breakouts.
To give you the final answers to questions like:
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 thousands of hour, I was able to isolate 12 of the most robust, powerful and universal techniques. And I structured them into 4 different levels, creating a pyramid of laser-focused timing.
I call it the 'Breakout Timing Pyramid'.
For each level I designed 3 very powerful strategies to dramatically reduce false breakouts.
That's 12 ground-breaking techniques you can add to your existing trading strategies in minutes. And start seeing a reduction in false breakouts almost instantly.
Here's one example of a 5-minute improvement using one of my false breakout smashing techniques:
This is only ONE technique. When applied, it shows an increase in Net Profit, Profit Factor, Average Trade and NetProfit to Drawdown Ratio. Plus, it does this 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. Now 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 could your trading potentially improve?
These 12 cutting-edge techniques are the very best I’ve implemented into my own trading, including my hedge fund.
All you need to do is to take these 12 techniques, add them into your existing breakout trading strategies - and start smashing false breakouts almost instantly.

"I've learned to test everything. So when the Smashing False Breakouts course came out, I was a bit sceptical and it felt like curve fitting. So, the first thing I did was to take the example that you gave in class and just checked to see if a strategy that was very simple, two lines, a long entry and a short entry, could be improved. And, sure enough, the methodologies that you put forward really work!"
