How To Create Profitable Breakout Strategies In 14 Days Or Less, In Under 35 Minutes A Day... following the simple 5-step program that's helped hundreds of breakout traders in 34 countries!


Imagine in 14 days from now, you have the ability to build breakout strategies fast… 

Every single day...

In less than 35 minutes per day... (but closer to 20 minutes some days).

Well, you'd probably think that was bogus, wouldn't you?

I'm Tomas Nesnidal, and I'm going to be your breakout trading mentor for the next 14 days

My name is Tomas Nesnidal. I'm a Hedge Fund manager and recognized breakout trading specialist. I've taught hundreds of students in the Czech Republic to build profitable and robust breakout strategies. In fact, some of my students have even taken these techniques to launch their own hedge funds.  

I've appeared as a trading expert on National Television several times. Plus, I co-wrote several best-selling trading books in Czech. My work is even published on major trading websites and magazines, including: 

But of course, my trading story was not always a success like this. 

I still remember my first years in algorithmic trading. Long nights in front of a computer screen. Searching desperately for at least ONE robust, high-quality trading strategy. The days (and nights) were painful, frustrating, and I even had doubts if trading would ever work for me.  

Fortunately, it was the lucky combination of two trading friends that changed my trading forever: 

My 1st friend introduced me to one of the most lucrative trading approaches ever - breakout trading.

And my 2nd friend revealed a powerful technique used by billion-dollar pharmaceutical companies. It's called "Combination Screening”.

When I combined these two revelations to create the “M.A.C. formula with Combination Screening”, EVERYTHING changed. First for me, and now for the hundreds of students I shared this powerful formula with. 

And the reason why IT WORKS is very simple:

  • The approach to strategy creation is based on a proven MODEL. Not some “hit-or-miss” strategy creation most traders use.  
  • The process leverages the extremely powerful “Combination Screening” technique. The same approach used by billion-dollar pharmaceutical companies to prototype drug combinations fast.  
  • The approach uses only VERIFIED breakout strategy components. No stacking random nonsense logic and filters on top of each other to create a weird hybrid that other traders call a “strategy”. Instead, it uses only the best components that fit together like sprockets of the finest Swiss watches.  

Then when it's all combined with savvy automation, you start getting results really fast.

Here's what your life could look like:

You wake up, you haven’t quit your job yet but you have hope, REAL hope that finally you are going to get to leave. You’ve seen some of your first successful breakout trades get executed. You have the feeling that "this is actually going to work"!

Hundreds of traders have already experienced these results and you can too with this special package we prepared for you.

"Working the way he describes."

“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

I have tested countless ideas and strategies from the internet - some work but many don't. After completing and testing the concept of Tomas I was happily surprised that it was working the way he describes

In a few days to a week I had roughly 200 trading strategies... This course is definitely worth the money and time." 

-Henrik, Sweden Founder of Nordic Autotrading Society

"The content is outstanding."

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

Here's what more students are saying:

"Methods actually work."

“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, India

"It was a turning point for me."

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."  

-Maxim Schulz, 3rd place in World Cup Trading Championship 2017


"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, South Africa

"Honest transparency and commitment to excellence."

"Thank you Tomas and Andrew. I appreciate your honest transparency and commitment to excellence." -Phil, Australia

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." -Martin, Sweden

“Tom´s systems and trading approach do really work and can bring good, stable and reasonable returns." - David, Czech Republic
