Breakout definition

In trading, a breakout refers to when the price of a currency, stock, commodity suddenly moves outside a previously defined level of support and resistance. In other words, it is when an asset price ‘breaks out’ of bounds after being stuck at a level for a period. Breakouts are often followed by a surge in trading volume, as traders have a newfound interest in the asset at the new price level. This is because for many traders, a breakout is a potential sign of a new trend or market momentum, encouraging many to open trades.

 

An example of a breakout in trading

A stock’s price has been trading within the range of $60 and $70 for a few months, but it suddenly breaks through the upper resistance level of $70 and continues to rise. This could be a sign that there has been a shift in market sentiment and a newfound increased demand for the stock, which can potentially lead to further increase in the price. Traders wishing to capitalise on this will enter a long position with the aim to make a profit from the stock’s appreciation.

 

Limitations of trading breakouts

While breakouts can be useful for traders to identify new trends and potentially make high profits, they can carry risks. Some may lead to false signals or there may be unexpected reversals in the market, leading traders to incur losses if they are not vigilant. Therefore, traders should always have a risk management strategy in place when trading, and they should consider multiple factors such as market conditions, volatility, and investor sentiment before trading.

Investing in CFDs involves a high degree of risk that you will lose your money due to the use of leverage, particularly in fast moving markets, where a relatively small movement in the price can lead to a proportionately larger movement in the value of your investment. This can result in loses that exceed the funds in your account. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and you should seek independent advice if necessary.
