  • Upon a breakout a stock can be expected to reach the breakout target price. Also listed is the stop limit and profit/loss ratio for the breakout.
  • Breakouts vary in how quickly they rally and reach the breakout stock target.
    • True Breakouts are the strongest breakouts made from type double or triple stock resistance areas and their rallies typically last a short time of 3 to 5 days.
    • Continuation Breakouts are made from single resistance areas and their rallies typically last longer at 1 to 3 weeks.
  • Breakouts fall into three categories depending on their state:
    • WATCH: A watch breakout is currently at resistance and may breakout above a trigger stock price.
    • CONFIRMED: A confirmed breakout is a stock that has started to breakout and is above it's trigger price and resistance area.
    • POSSIBLE: A possible breakout is a stock which has started to breakout(above it's trigger price and resistance area) but has a mixed possibility of continuing higher (lacking bullish indicators).
