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

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)
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

Syngene - Same concept. Price contraction. Shift from weak to strong hands through repeated volatility contractions. I can well write one whole page explanation on it. Look at the volume pump today. A big hand will never let you ride with him. Make sure you are there at the party https://t.co/RN8sQYzdBg pic.twitter.com/AShKWnQeJt— Steve Nison (@nison_steve) July 15, 2021
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.
