Don’t Get Trapped In False Breakouts

A few weeks ago I did some analysis in the Emini, saying last week would be critical and it was.

So lets take a look at the chart.

ES Chart

Where I have drawn the yellow dotted line showed a double top, the bar prior to the magenta arrow broke though but straddled the price.

So, if you were a rookie trader you could be forgiven for thinking it was a breakout to the upside. WRONG! Resistance areas are not rods of steel but rubber bands, so that bar in fact just stretched the resistance area and then came back.

Look at the bar where the magenta arrow is; no part of the bar is touching the blue support up line, hence that is a break of support/resistance.
Hawkeye Perspective
So, you can see the importance of the Hawkeye rule to wait until no part of the bar is touching support or resistance and the Hawkeye Volume is colored in the direction of the breakout.

Now, all of this (and much more) is demonstrated in our FREE training room every Wednesday at 9am Eastern, by my colleague Randy Lindsey.

So, I cannot encourage you enough to come along to the Wednesday room.
