What are the things you look for when trading breakouts?

Leave a comment below and let me know.


  • Thanks Rayner! Understand in some situation, like in US market, many investments are marginal 1 : 10 with 10% stop-loss or release of stocks. Most influential big players if they want to enter, they usually drive down 10% more first before the turning point of up-trend.

    Do you have any advice on how to trade such scenarios?

    E.g. SIG in NYSE

  • Rayner once a breakout occur should I wait for second candle before entering let say on tf5min because I often hit my stop loss if I enter upon breakout and it retract and becomes a pin bar and if I wait for second candle the price have move to far from my resistant or support and my stop loss going to be to big. This has always been my problem. Waiting for your good advice. Thanks. Nazda.

    • Hi Nazda,

      There’s really no right or wrong way to this.

      False breakouts are part and parcel of trading and you have to accept it.

      If you find it easier to trade by waiting for a “confirmation” then go for it.


    • Enter instead at the Bottom support level of the Breakout pattern, Then it won’t matter if it retracts!

  • Thank you Rayner. You amazed me one more time. Heard about this before, but some how i get deeper understanding. Salute to you sir. And you sounds like a wyckoff-ian 🙂

  • Thank you Rayner,
    When trading, people often tends to chase after a break out and very often the price is already a distance from the structure and built-up. Especially when the price keeps on moving up, nobody wants to be left out. Once you are in, often gets trap and the price starts moving down.
    This video is excellent reminder to me.

  • Nice video with clear example. I like to know how to trade breakout failure. When to take entry, what should be S/L and what should be RR if ine trade BO failure .

    Thanks again for good lesson.

  • Hi Rayner,
    Great learning. One suggestion , if you can show some more examples of such breakouts, it will be of more helpful to grasp and apply the concept. Kudos to you for your self-less sharing..
    If i am to send some dollars to you as a token of Love, please share the details for the same. (I am from India)

  • Hey Rayner…..very nice pointers regarding breakout trading and also which ones to avoid.

    Your videos are so easy to understand and have really valuable content.

    God bless you!

  • Thanks Rayner….makes so much more sense….however a doubt, when you do these charts to see all these areas, what do you use as timeframe, daily or 4H? Which one do you recommend? Thanks again

  • Hi Rayner,

    Thanks for the great lesson.

    However I doubts is on the part “trade breakouts with build up”

    You stated that when price action moved to a resistance zone n consolidate, it were most possible due to two reasons, 1. There isn’t any seller n 2. There are buyers willing to buy this price level, so there is better possibility that the price will go upwards after the consolidation. But why can’t be the possibility to be on vice versa. I.e, 1. There isn’t any buyer to push the price up, n 2. There are more seller coming in to put the price down, after all the price was at the resistance zone.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Robert

      That’s possible as well. But based on my experience the more times SR is tested, the more likely it is to breakout as stops are accumulated beyond the levels.

      • Do you mean most trader will execute short trade with stop loss above the resistance level, money market will breakout n eat those stoploss ?

        • Hi Robert,

          It’s likely traders will have their stops above resistance as that’s what they are taught to do. And if there’s enough incentive by the “big players”, they could run the market higher and trigger those stops.

  • Thanks very much for this presentation, I am particularly grateful that you took the time to define area of buildup.
    It was an excellent useful presentation. I cannot believe I am getting all this info FREE.
    May you be abundantly rewarded.

  • I am on my way to becoming a profitable trader thanks to you and your videos Rayner.
    Many thanks Rayner, I am looking forward to your webinar next week too 🙂

  • Hi Rayner,
    Thank you for you advice. I can see where I have been going wrong, and nowhere I can improve.

    Thank you

  • Thanks for this video Rayner. It made it clear for me what are the more favourable set ups and avoid being caught up in false ones. Very often I just look at the “close range” angle of the chart (3 months) so I get excited immediately to jump in without much consideration to look at the general trend. SOmetimes…I win in this but often I get caught in false break outs. This is very helpful and so are the other stuff you wrote. I hope there are lot more coming 🙂
    More power to you Man!

  • You’ve probably heard this a 100 times before.. but still… nice video and examples, along with a great explanation.
    Keep them coming please, I like your style of explanation.
    Thanks mate 🙂

  • Wow, thanks Rayner! Awesome video, man 🙂

    This answered a LOT of questions going through my head regarding breakouts. I’ve read and been taught to look for breakouts before but this video amplified previous learnings. I can now look at charts from a different vantage point. Hopefully i will start seeing what I need to see more clearly and act faster.

    Cheers and more power to you!

  • Will my chances of trading breakouts be more successful during bull markets than in bear markets or major corrections?

    Thank you so much Rayner for your tireless and selfless acts of mentoring. May God shower you with many blessings so you could continue to help more traders like me.

  • The information you provide and the way you teach is beyond helpful i want to say thank you for helping me through my trading journey.

  • Thank you so much for this eye opening theory, I look forward to seeing if I can implement what you have taught me. Keep up the good work, you’re special.

  • Thanks for this great video Rayner. I’ve been following your blogs through twitter for 2 weeks now and it had been a blast learning a lot. I do have a question though. Is volume necessary part of a breakout (i.e. volume should be higher than the average)?

    Thanks in advance!

  • I must know when to trade and know when not to them. Must ensure that that I trade break-outs near the build-up not far from it for stop loss purposes. Damn sir you are so good and very clear on your teachings , thank you

  • Hi Rayner,I read your main two guides Price Action & Trend following.Those are real eye openers & very helpful.I’m eagerly looking for more material to read form you as e books but couldn’t find.Are those two are the only materials available as e books?

  • Hi Rayner
    I know it’s best to trade direction of trend. But during a bull market of say the spy, qqq ect. , some stocks are bull market and some are bear market. Is it best to buy a bullish stock while it’s rising and at the same time the overall market is rising that particular day. Or do you feel it isn’t necessary for the overall market to be rising that day as long as the individual stock your buying is rising???

  • meeting you Raynar has really given me new idea and improved my trading skills. I really enjoyed reading and applying what I learnt from your ultimate guide t trend following. as u discliamed u are not accountable for loss or profit so I just want to thank God for letting me meet u

  • Hi Potential!! Rayner a very big thank you from me here in Nigeria for ur works, though am new in trading still trading with demo but believe me with you as my mentor the sky is just my begging not limit Kudos hope to pay u a visit from Nigeria just to seat on your lecture class.

  • Very well explained in detail….thanks bro. I m from India and want to learn option chain and Greek in detail…please share a blog and some videos on that which helps to trade in Indian market.

  • Look at for the type of trend be it up or down trend. Also look at for market structure and ensure my SL is close to it. Will try this as I keep learning. Thanks Rayner

  • You might be wondering, why Rayner keeps posting the same old videos.

    I’ll break it down for you my friiiineds.

    When ever you see a post here, or on telegram, you open the post only to find a link to an old video, don’t go ahhhg, I’ve seen this. NO’ it’s a reference to what the markets are doing at that particular time and for the week ahead.
    e.g, this breakout post is from way back but go see what OIL is doing, nzdusd is doing, Btc is doing, the list is just long, hence he always says DYOR. My point here is, this is him mentoring you for free once again.

    Powerful stuff right?‍♂️

    Thank you Rayner (breakout week) Teo.
