Break Out Analysis Tool

Break Out Analysis Tool

This break out analysis tool allows us to set a look back period (p) and then analyses breakouts of that periods highest high and lowest low in the next p bars. It can then return the results in three formats.:

  • The quantity of breakouts and their conclusion.
  • The percentage of breakouts and then the percentage of their conclusions.
  • The Profit/Loss if you had gone long or short at a break out price and then sold at the end of the p long period.

In the percentage return ‘% green datum’ and ‘% red datum’ are the percentage of ups or downs when comparing close to open of the p test period. So for example if p = 7 then how many 7 bar periods end up or end down. This is just to give us a market datum to compare to.

It is possible to add or subtract a percentage to the highest high and lowest low breakout levels by changing the ‘Percent’ variable.

It is also possible to include a fixed spread in the profit and loss calculations by changing the ‘Spread’ variable.

Turn on and off the displayed lines for percentage, profit and loss and quantities using the tick boxes to make the output easier to read.

So for example in the images attached we can see that on the DJI daily if we set our p to 7 days then it checks for breakouts of the highest high and lowest low of every seven day period in the seven days following that period. It then simulates profit/loss if you closed the trade at the end of that seven day period.

10485 sets of data were analysed and there were 5756 breakouts in the test. 3239 breaks of the highest high (31% of the time) and 2517 breaks of the lowest low (24% of the time).

Our green datum is 57% and our red datum is 43% meaning that if at anytime we had just gone long then we would have been right 57% of the time at the end of the 7 days and wrong 43% of the time.

58% of the time a low break resulted in the closing price being higher than the break price at the end of the seven days.

If you had been going short at every 7 day high break price and expecting it to close below the low break price then you would have only been successful 0.03% of the time.

57% of low breaks close somewhere between the low break price and the high break price. Only 1% of the time is a low break price hit and then the close is above the high break price.

If you had been going long at the low break price of every seven day period and sold at the end of the following 7 day period then you would have a profit of £51755 with a 3.8 spread.

If you had been going short at the low break price of every seven day period and sold at the end of the following 7 day period then you would have a loss of £70884.

Obviously there is a lot more information but the above highlights some of the stand out analysis.

Hopefully this break out analysis tool can help us understand each instruments characteristics and increase our probability of trading in the most profitable direction at a break out.

I suggest downloading and importing the ITF file to get full functionality.

    Vonasi, is it possible to have a screenshot of an index chart (eg djia) and below the breakout analysis tool result? Maybe with your comment on statistical metrics? Great job!

  2. Vonasi • 08/28/2019 #

    I can’t add any images here now that the library post has been listed. Perhaps you could start a topic in the forums to start a discussion on the breakout characteristics of various markets.

    Thanks again Vonasi !

    Thank you, this is a great tool @Vonasi, especially for those that used to like shorting Indices!
    Better have great entry timing or else (monthly breakout on DIA)… https://www.dropbox.com/s/x7v41p4cuz4xrq5/mkt%20temperature.png
