Trading Strategy

Avoiding False Breakouts

Breakouts of support and resistance levels in the market occur when buying and selling activity builds up at very specific price points and subsequently breaks above or below that level.

In this webinar we discuss how you can spot these potential breakout levels and develop a strategy for trading them.

Topics covered

• Understand the meaning of support and resistance levels
• Discover why sloping trend lines are subjective and largely unreliable
• Develop your own criteria for potential entry and stop placement when solid breakout levels appear in a trend
• Enhance your knowledge in identifying additional technical elements that indicate trend strength
