Breakout Trading

How to trade in rising and falling markets

Breakout Trading: Ride the roller coaster

Breakout trading is essentially rally trading following a breakout from a point of agreement. Since breakouts can occur to the upside and the downside it means this strategy makes it possible to profit from opportunities in rising and falling markets.

Trend trading is a powerful way to trade. But sometimes the stock market may not offer many trend trading opportunities. In situations like this, breakout trading is a useful strategy to have at your fingertips.

Breakout Trading: A rally following a point of agreement

The Breakout Trading strategy is outlined below. You will find a full explanation in the Breakout Trading Manual - including formula details.

  • The market is scanned for new breakouts, both LONG and SHORT
  • Current breakout trades in progress are listed (along with their charts)
  • Guidelines are available to assess the quality of a breakout
  • Data tables provide risk and money management figures for position size, entries & exits 

The newsletter will provide you with all the necessary charts and data so you can implement the strategy in less than an hour a week. No charting software is required.

"The main advantage of breakout trading is it can
provide trading opportunities all year round -
regardless of whether markets are going up or down"
Alan Hull, December 2014

As this is a medium risk, short term strategy, it is best used as part of an overall investment plan that incorporates longer term strategies like Active Investing or the Blue Chip Report.
