Breakout - futures trading

Go Back

> Trading Wiki > Terms (Glossary)


A breakout is when prices pass through and stay through an area of support or resistance. On the technical analysis chart a break out occurs when price of a stock or commodity exits an area pattern. Oftentimes, a stock or commodity will bounce between the areas of support and resistance and when it breaks through either one of these barriers you can consider the direction that it's heading in a trend. This can be a "Buy" or "Sell" signal depending on which barrier it broke through.
