Free Trend Following strategy (Breakout)

Free Trend Following Breakout strategy for Tradingview

Here’s another free script for Tradingview, this one is a Trend Following strategy using Breakouts in order to generate Buy and Sell signals.

Since that post, I have released a full Tradingview strategy based on breakout for Bitcoin and other cryptos. You can now get an email alert whenever you need to buy or sell. Make sure to check it out!

Backtest from the breakout strategy

This strategy easily beat buy and hold as you can see in the backtest results below. The strategy has a 2221% profit with a maximum drawdown of 25%. It also has a very high success rate with 58% of profitable trade.

The backtest doesn’t have many trades in it so it might be good for you to try it with different settings than the default one or on different timeframe.

Backtest results for a Breakout Trend Following strategy

This strategy was first tested for Bitcoin USDT pair to scalp on 15 minutes or less chart. The results were not as great as expected, so I am now making it free to everyone to use as I think it can still beat a lot of other crypto strategies out there.

How the breakout strategy works

Our free Breakout strategy uses High and Lows of X candle to determine the entry and exit. When the price break over the recent highest high, a LONG position should be open, we then use the lowest low as a take profit or stop loss.

For a SHORT, we do the opposite, the lowest low becomes the entry signal and the highest high is our take profit or stop loss.

Here is what it looks like on a Bitcoin chart 4H:

Why you should use this free strategy for your BTC trades?

Well, if you don’t have any strategy in place, you will only get rekt by the crypto market. This strategy is a good foundation to start trading crypto.

It is often hard to know when to get in and out of a trade, having a strict strategy in place will remove uncertainty and the mistakes that come with it.

The breakout strategy will give you:

  • Clear Entry and Exit signals
  • A stop-loss

Combined with our position size calculator, you will have a fully functional trading strategy that require almost no effort to trade.

There is no reason to jump in your next trade blindly! Now, the only thing that can hold you back is you.

Position size for Breakout

Position sizing is a significant part of any strategy and you should be using it when trading a breakout strategy. Especially when you trade the volatile markets like crypto.

To make sure your position size is always in line with your personal risk, you can use our position size calculator and determine exactly what amount to buy or sell. It will take you a few seconds and will save you a lot of trouble!
