When the price of an asset crosses above a resistance region or below a support area, this is referred to as a breakout. Breakouts suggest that the price may begin to trend in the breakout direction. A breakout to the upside from a chart pattern, for instance, can signal that the price will begin to trend higher. High volume breakouts (compared to typical volume) demonstrate more conviction, which increases the likelihood that the price will trend in that direction. A breakout happens when the price is released from a range that has been below a resistance level or above a support level, maybe for a while. A lot of traders utilize the resistance or support level as a boundary to determine entry and exit locations.

Traders waiting for the breakout enter the market when the price crosses through the support or resistance level, and those who didn’t want the price to breakout close out their positions to limit their losses. Volume will frequently increase as a result of this flurry of activity, indicating that many traders were interested in the breakout level. The breakthrough is strengthened by the larger than usual volume. If there is little volume on the breakout, it’s possible that few traders considered the level to be important or that not enough traders were yet convinced to place a trade close to the level. These smaller volume breakouts have a higher failure rate. In the event of an upward breakout, the price will drop back below resistance if it fails.
