Real Breakout Trading

In this strategy (Real Breakout Trading), we will avoid false breakouts and enter on the real ones. We will use a stop loss in order to minimize losses and maximize profits. You can use this strategy in any timeframe and in any currency pair.
Rules Real Breakout Trading:
We will draw 2 lines in the chart, one at the high and one at the low of the period between 7 PM and 11 PM, Eastern Time. After drawing these lines, the currency pair you are looking at must do a breakout or a breakdown from this channel. We are not going to enter here, in this first breakout. We are going to wait until the moment the currency pair reverses and makes the breakout or breakdown on the opposite direction of the first breakout or breakdown. We will use a stop loss of 20 pips. We will use the Awesome indicator to tell us when to exit the trade.
Real Breakout Trading
Entry: Buy GBP/USD at 1.7576
Stop Loss: 1.7556
Exit: 1.7695
Profit: 119 pips
When you are considering to use this strategy, the first thing you need to do is to draw the two lines – the first one at the high of the day (between 7 PM and 11 PM, EST), and the second one at the low of the day (during the same time span). In this example, the lines are at 1.7575 and 1.7523, respectively, for the high and the low. In this particular trade, there has been a false breakdown.
So, we are going to place a buy order at 1.7576, 1 pip above the higher line, because we want to enter on the opposite side of the first break of the channel. We will also place a stop loss order 20 pips below our entry point, at 1.7556. After entering the trade, we need to monitor it very closely.
We will now start to look at the Awesome indicator. As you can easily identify, while prices are going up, the indicator is moving up as well. We need to focus on the Awesome indicator because as soon as it starts to decline (turns red) while it is above its centerline, it is time to exit the trade.
This happened at 1.7695, which left us with a very nice 119 pips profit. This was a great intraday trade.

Profit: 25 pips
In this GBP/USD 15 minutes chart, we have drawn two lines which represent the high and the low for the period of time we are considering in this strategy.

We will also place a stop loss order 20 pips below the entry point, at 1.7347. After entering the trade, we need to look at the Awesome indicator. As we entered in a long position, the indicator should be green and going up. When it turns red (and starts falling), it is time to exit the position. This was what happened at 1.7392. The total profit for this trade was $250 for each currency pair you’re holding.

We will, then, enter the short sell order at 1.7646, 1 pip below the lower line that we have previously drawn. We will also set a stop loss order 20 pips above our entry point, at 1.7666. When the Awesome indicator turns green or starts moving up, it is time to cover our short. This happened at 1.7619, giving us a 27 pips total profit.
