How to trade Breakaway Gaps?
First of all - identify a Breakaway Gap by looking at price breaking out with a gap wherein no shares exchanged hands. If you look at the attached chart of NELCO, you can see one on 12th August.
Nest step - wait for few sessions to look for "if the gap is filled or not" and simultaneously look for "PIVOT LOW".
What is pivot low? It is a candle that is surrounded by two candles on either side with higher lows. Ideally, this should be your stop-loss point. Candle 2 is PL
What about the entry? Entry is taken when the right side candle's high next to the Pivot point candle is knocked out. (buy when high of candle 3 is crossed with a stop loss below low of candle 2)
although a must-have portfolio stock. Faced resistance right at the upper channel boundary. Volumes high. Any retracement back to the lower boundary will be an opportunity to accumulate. https://t.co/5uDsUXsbPP

It is important to analyse the strength of the breakout. If the price does not continues the move in 1 or 2 sessions and candles show long upper wicks, it is better to bring the SL closer. Distribution sign.
Will be helpful in next breakouts. https://t.co/AtZOj4bKeT
Learning: Strong breakout— The_Chartist \U0001f4c8 (@nison_steve) July 2, 2021
1. Breakout candle will have no upper shadow or extremely less compared to the body
2. Volumes will be high (to avoid retailers to enter & also big hand absorbing all the selling)
3. Pullbacks will be rare/very less
4. Happens after a long consolidation pic.twitter.com/YTHDOnEdxo
Point 1 = Profit booking by many traders and fresh short positions opened taking the stock down till level 2 where there is no more selling
Point 2 - a level wherein the stock becomes attractive again for fresh buyers and short positions will be covered adding strength to the stock.
It moves back till point 3 which is now the psychological resistance level and would again see profit booking by weak hands.
But, this time the stock fell till point 4 wherein the buyers (smart hands) are willing to pay a higher price and further push out the weak hands absorbing all their selling. This is the ideal entry point for a risk-loving trader as this is the closest to the stop-loss point.
Finally, you see - in the whole process - the stock has shifted hands from uninformed retail investors to "smart hands". And finally followed by a cup and handle breakout. The target will be the depth of the cup projected upwards from the breakout level.
When to take entry for a conservative investor? At candle no 5 - the breakout candle and stop-loss a few % below breakout level.
In the next thread - I will explain to you how the same principle works for most of the patterns (No need to mug up the pattern names)
I believe 5-10 stocks are enough for a retail investor to achieve super performance. And with small capital, there is no point in buying 20/30 names which doesn't even get appropriate initial capital.
