The Breakout Monster Trading System

The Breakout Monster Trading System is a unique breakout system coming off the
 spgm-systemfamily; it is designed to catch mainly the trending part of the day’s
 market direction.
In other words, it keeps you out of the market during periods of low volatility which
you all know could be very boring and does well to keep you at alert prior to trigger
of high market volatility.
THE BREAKOUT MONSTER
SETUP:
Pairs: All pairs
Timeframe: daily, 15mins and 5mins charts
Indicators: sma5 and sma20 (close)
Setup your chart with the indicators above and your chart shouldn’t look different
from the one below Chart-1
You may however set indicator colour of your choice but make sure the parameters
given are same.
BUY TRIGGER:
For a buy trigger, first of all go to daily chart of your pair and make sure sma5 is in
clear buy mode as shown in the chart below; Chart-2

Then switch to 5mins chart and be on the look out for a group of up to 15-36 candles
on the 5mins chart trending within a tight range then set horizontal line to mark upper
boundary of the range as well as lower boundary. Alternatively, you can do this on
15mins chart by looking out for up to 5-10 candles trending in a very tight range and
set horizontal lines to mark upper and lower boundaries of the tight range then switch
back to 5mins charts. Make sure the upper boundary should be at the high of the
candle with the highest high within the range and the lower boundary is at the low of
the candle with the lowest low within the range. Chart-3

Next after marking upper and lower boundaries with horizontal lines, you now wait
patiently for the trigger and what is this trigger? It is simply a clear divergence of
sma5 away from sma20 to the upside and this divergence is deemed valid and good to
trade only when sma5 crosses or breaks the upper boundary line of the range by at
least 5pips on the 5mins chart. You can always know the price of sma5 by simply
placing your mouse cursor at the tip of sma5 and the price will display (possible on
mt4). When this is confirmed, there must have been at least a candle close above the
upper boundary line so your entry for long will be at a retrace of price to touch sma5.

Next after marking upper and lower boundaries with horizontal lines, you should wait
patiently for the trigger and what is this trigger? It is simply a clear divergence of
sma5 away from sma20 to the downside and this divergence is deemed valid and good
to trade only when sma5 crosses or breaks the lower boundary line of the range by at
least 5pips on the 5mins chart. You can always know the price of sma5 by simply
placing your mouse cursor at the tip of sma5 and the price will display (possible on
mt4). When this is confirmed, there must have been at least a candle close below the
lower boundary line so your entry for short will be at a retrace of price to touch sma5.

SUMMARY
The idea behind these setups is basically catching breakouts in the direction of the
day’s trend and that is why you have to see daily chart for trend confirmation. If
however, you get a breakout in the opposite direction of the day’s trend then I will
advice you ignore such breaks because it may most likely be false.
Just like every other system, spgm-4 is not guaranteed to giving you 100% results,
there’s bound to be false breaks once in a while however, this incidents of false breaks
could be greatly minimized by picking setups coming off mainly between Asian
market open and London market close…01:30hrs – 17:30hrs GMT. Best results were
achieved within this period while spgm-4 was still in test mode.
Another interesting observation made on spgm-4 during test running is that after the
trigger for buy/sell and entry is made, if sma20 now in turn breaks or crosses the
barrier in same direction as sma5, this means that price will most likely trend below
sma20 for a fairly long while and a first retrace of price to touch sma20 after crossing
the boundary line usually result to a strong bounce of price off sma20 to hit a new
high/low and most times it results to a 1-2-3 formation setup which means more drop
or rise of price in the direction of breakout and additional entries won’t be a greedy
idea at all. Chart-8
