Whenever you get a breakout with good volume clearly shows lot of people are interested to trade with a stock at this particular level after the breakout. So next time when ever you are entering the trade make sure the volume is at least 30% more than the normal trade volume. This will significantly increase your success rates.

Rule 4: After the breakout enter only when next candle breaks the high of the breakout candle

Always enter into the trade after the breakout candle closes. Lets look at the following chart:
