The #1 reason why the winner takes it all

This week I’m in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. The place where I was born and lived for many years. Walking the streets of the Old Town brings back a lot of memories, some of them related to my former Czech students. For a long time, I used to co-own the...

[VIDEO] Breakout strategies from my hedge fund

In the last few weeks, I’ve received requests to share more details about the strategies from our hedge fund. I don’t normally do this, as I’m protective of showing anything directly from our hedge fund 'kitchen', but this time, I decided to make a small exception....

Trading damage control that works

Trading damage control that works

My ‘lucky streak’ of 6 winning months in a row has just been broken. Not a big deal, as this year has been pretty rewarding already, but being spoiled with a lot of great trades and then having to give part of the profits back never pleases anyone, does it? On the...

Recently, we’ve received an interesting question during the 14-Day Breakout Challenge: Tomas, why did you leave other trading styles (commodity spreads, pair trading, options, etc.) and focused on ATS (Automated Trading Strategies) only?  Here’s the...

Four levels to smash false breakouts

Four levels to smash false breakouts

"Tom's approach to ATS design, tests of robustness and portfolio diversification is really unique."

Antonin Breakout Trading Student

"As a programmer who has been fiddling with automated trading via AmiBroker and standalone Interactive Brokers API I kind of thought 'Oh well, another set of rules to program, might be interesting, may as well have a look'.

I was completely blown away by Tomas' automated strategy creation idea - so obvious in retrospect, but so clever.  Effectively optimizing the strategies rather than the parameters. Game-changer."

Dave Emini Breakout Strategies Student

"The DPS techniques are better than a filter since my total trade count doesn’t suffer and yet my average net profit per contract improves."

Shiva Dynamic Position Sizing Student

"The Breakout Strategies Masterclass has without a doubt been a great investment for me already. I took the course in the second half of 2017 and my results have improved substantially... I’ve read literally hundreds of books and took many courses on the markets and most of them failed to teach me a robust way to trade... Thank you Tomas for another great course."

Bruno Breakout Strategies Masterclass Student

"After I analysed the work of so many traders for several years , I can count you as one of the handful of genuine traders and educators whose methods actually work."

Raman Breakout Strategies Masterclass Student

“Immediately after applying just the time filters from the ‘Smashing False Breakouts’ course, I achieved an absolutely massive improvement.”

Shawn Smashing False Breakouts Student

"The way they develop swing strategies is very intuitive and easy to implement. You will find some swing trading ideas that you may not have considered before."

Chang Hui Advanced Swing Strategies Student

"I signed up for the Masterclass 1 week ago and am eagerly devouring the lessons. Tomas is the real McCoy. He is absolutely genuine and sincere."

Jeff Breakout Strategies Masterclass Student

“I started and completed the Swing Add-On course less than 1 month ago, and I have already discovered several viable robust strategies in fixed income markets.”

Brian Advanced Swing Strategies Student

"Overall well-structured course with a lot of right away applicable information. The course fulfilled all my expectations and is worth every cent."
