Traders from over 55+ countries are glad they chose Better Trader Academy:
“I’m very happy that I found your website, because when I was a green man in the beginning, I bought a lot of sh*t, bullsh*t… They didn’t improve me, they made me worse than better, they made me a bad trader. That’s why I’m very happy that I met you and I learnt from you and Tomas, because in index trading, especially S&P 500, it was a turning point for me.
First turning point was Larry Williams with his work on grains, with the commitment of traders reports. This was my first turning point to be successful, and second turning point was you and Tomas.
This year I’m much better than I was one year ago before I bought your Trading Market Internals course. This was for me very, very important to improve myself. I’m more confident in trading, especially in trading stock indexes, because of Better Trader Academy.
I’m very, very thankful to you and Tomas, this is very good work.”
“Yesterday, I started the ‘Smashing False Breakouts’ class and immediately began applying just the timing filters, including the Dynamic Twisted DOW with the dynamic position sizing – and achieved an absolutely massive improvement.
The profit factor increased from 1.4 to 2.27 and the average trade went up to close to $210 – huge for an e-mini day trading strategy. In addition, the Return/DD went from 13:1 on the original to 18:1. In fact, the max DD really didn’t increase at all.
So, that’s a huge improvement in no more than 15 minutes of effort only considering a single technique!“
“I think the Dynamic Position Sizing course is great. It is well laid out and very clear. Thanks for another great course.”
“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.”
“It is a great tool. You are taking position sizing to a new level and I can see why it is so crucial for your hedge fund.”
“I really appreciate what you gentlemen have put together here. I consider your courses to be excellent!!!
Specifically, providing a framework that gives someone access to the concept of breakouts is fantastic.
The detailed code then makes it very practical and implementable.
Finally, using the code as a template to create an unlimited variety of strategies creates a methodology for creating an unlimited amount of breakout strategies and other strategies.
For example, I can see myself using this template approach for other types of trading strategies (beyond breakout strategies) to develop a portfolio of different types of strategies.
Thanks once again.“
“I am trading and developing strategies for more than 7 years now, and I have tried a lot. The fully automated trading is and was always my goal, but it is hard to find practical education for automated strategy development out there, meaning stuff that really works.
BetterTraderAcademy finally brings it to the point, providing exactly what I need. This way of thinking has boosted my trading to another level. I really wish I had this already at the very beginning of my trading journey.
I am really happy to have joined BetterTraderAcademy and I am looking forward to the Breakout Strategy MasterClass.
I want to thank you again for the great material and courses you are providing. Is just great and makes a lot of fun!!“
“This course caters for everybody. If you are new to strategy development this will get you out of the blocks in no time. If you already have a development workflow this should slot in with very little change. Whilst watching the last few videos the computer was already getting potential new systems in the background. Thanks Tomas and Andrew.“
“The DPS Course is FABULOUS. I will implement the Dynamic Position Sizing code next week!“
“Thanks everyone for all the tips, and big thanks to Tomas & Andrew for getting this info out. I cannot imagine how much time (and money) these courses have saved me. Up until this point I had assumed a 10-year optimization (with 20% OOS) followed by a SWFA was adequate robustness testing to start trading a strategy live.”
“I have taken it, and finished lesson 1. I think the value is much higher the price. Actually, I use the similar breakout strategies for swing trading. But this course still inspired me new ideas, it could be a part of my personal trading style. Thank you for sharing this good course.“
“All I can really say is that Tomas’s courses are great! All courses are full of excellent information. The courses will cut down your learning curve dramatically. Learning programming trading could have taken years for you on your own. Thanks for an excellent experience, Tomas & Andrew.”
“The course is very impressive…. the improvements in strategy results that you get are pretty amazing!”
“I recently bought the e-mini breakout course. Ton of value there! Just the lesson with the practical walkthrough of the smart code is worth the whole price of the course. Wow!
Also, I work in a large U.S. corporation, and I see a lot of presentations and training materials. The way the course was laid out and formatted is Top Notch and very professional.”
“It has been a great course from which I have extracted much more information than it is actually available.”
“Tomas, Andrew and their team put together a thought through, very well structured program. I can recommend this to anyone who wants to develop very robust strategies in many different markets.”
“As a trading educator with Nordic Autotrading Society and an active trader mainly focused on European markets, I am very impressed by the Emini Breakout course.
As a strategy developer I am always looking for new ideas how to do things. I have tested countless ideas and strategies from the internet. Some works and many don’t. After completing and testing the content of Tomas I was happily surprised that it was working. And amazingly many things by Tomas works the way he describes.
Even though I am using a completely different platform and had to adjust and rewrite the code the simplicity of the ideas this was nothing that reduced the value of the course.
The best thing is the simplicity and the beauty of the breakout framework along with the automated design process. In a few days to a week I had roughly 200 trading strategies that I fit into my own smart code for backtesting and live launch.
This course is definitely worth the money and time.”
“This course goes above and beyond in content and presentation. It is everything a systematic trader needs to build and test a robust trading system… This is the most detailed fully comprehensive trading course I think I ever purchased. I am so pleased I have this course in my tool kit now. A big thank you to Bob and Andrew for all their efforts in producing this magnificent course.”
“The course is really awesome already and I find it hard to see how it can be further improved. I’m on a path to continue my breakout strategies education with the Breakout Masterclass.“
“I’ve been testing out the MI codes the last few days and wanted to share a personal success I’ve already had.
I have a 1 min ES algo that I developed that has been running out of sample for 2 yrs now and is a workhorse in my portfolio.
With just adding the mini-smart code and about 20 min of testing, my new results are a 54% reduction in drawdown!
Wonderful code and course. I really hope you guys release more on this particular topic.”
-Alex Bernal, United States
“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…
As always, Tomas did a great job teaching simple and effective techniques that I can understand. 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.
What I love about the methodologies in the course is that they are simple, easy to use and it takes me very little time to apply them to my investment decisions.
Thank you Tomas for another great course.”
-Bruno, United States
“Thank you Tomas and Andrew. I appreciate your honest transparency and commitment to excellence. This speaks volumes to your market and will place you well above the rest!”
“The Dynamic Position Sizing course is wonderful. Focused and original. I’ve started applying the DPS techniques to my incubating strategies and it’s awesome. It’s better than a filter since my total trade count doesn’t suffer and yet my average net profit per contract (in addition to Net profit vs Maximum Drawdown) improves.“
“I can’t thank you enough for this course. Unbelievable!!
I was always hesitant putting my time in learning a new thing and then abandoning it because it didn’t work like I wanted.
You have saved months of my research time and not to mention all the frustration and risk of ending up nowhere.
On top of that, fast tracking my learning process by putting the course together which focuses on the elements from the entire WinAutomation framework that only focuses on strategy development; all the relevant items.
I’m a Ninja Trader 7 user and I couldn’t apply the techniques taught in Breakout MasterClass to the platform without the Automation Course.
Truly thank you for helping me discover WinAutomation and an amazing fast track course on using it.”
-Taha, United States
“I’m a partner in the biggest group of anesthesiologists in my state and as a hobby I have done extensive reading about futures and trading systems over the past 10 years, and your course has helped me more than most any other resource I have used.”
“I really like the Breakout Masterclass and it’s a quite unique way in developing strategies.”
-Patrick Dütsch, Switzerland
“I finished the masterclass in a few days.
It is an excellent course and I wished I had that at the beginning of my trading adventure.
I was impressed with how generous Tomas is with the know-how he passes on. I think anyone who trades mechanically will find lots of gems.
Most of the traders don’t have that level of automation and will be amazed to get a full methodology.”
-Thomas, New Zealand
“The scope and content of the course is impressive. The support is prompt and detailed. All in all, an excellent package!”
-John, Hong Kong
“The content of the e-mini breakout strategies course is outstanding. It’s hard to know who to trust in the trading industry, with so many traders and vendors selling so many different types of trading systems and tools. In my experience I’ve found that most of the money spent on trading systems and tools will end up being a waste of time. Luckily for me I found Tomas Nesnidal and his courses. After going through his course, I can definitely say that he is sincere about providing quality content that can make a big difference for retail traders.”
-Sherif, United States
“I am already amazed about the concept/ideas presented in the introduction. I always filtered the trades completely out instead of simply down or upsizing them based on the probability. Already that one is simply great, especially to prevent curve fitting and still being in the game also on bad days!”
“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.”
“Well, finally got to applying it to my ES strategy, and the results are awesome. Just take a look for yourself. Every single metric has improved, and more importantly, the Max DD which is what we need. Took just over 1h to optimise, but well worth it. No depressing DD with this current high VIX.”
-Christopher, United States
“This really is a game-changing course and one that was worth every penny.”
-Alan, United States
“Everything from the course works exactly as advertised!”
“I’ve not even watched past module 3 and already I’ve found a solid use for Market Internals in my own trading system!
I’m really impressed by what I’ve tested already- I’ve been trading for nearly 11 years and I’ve never thought of using something so conceptually simple but so powerful.”
-Craig, United Kingdom
“It is a very unique approach. I wish I had thought of that a few years ago. As my Irish friends say, it is brilliant!
Even more valuable is the years of insight that Tomas, the inventor of the approach, delivers around applying this system with his tips and strategies.”
-Mike, United States
“You want to be sure your money is well spent and it is usable out of the box…save time and re-use the knowledge of other experienced traders.”
“Just finished the course yesterday, and I really do like all the Dynamic Position Sizing concepts! The simplicity and novelty of the concepts surprise time again and again. And yet they are very powerful. Another valuable tool in your trading toolbox.”
-Patrick Dütsch, Switzerland
“Tom´s systems and trading approach do really work and can bring good, stable and reasonable returns.”
-David, Czech Republic
“Tom’s approach to breakout trading strategies design, tests of robustness and portfolio diversification is really unique.”
-Antonin, Czech Republic
