Are You Ready For The Breakout? (Fake-Out?)

Video Length: 00:46:53

Welcome back – charts are prepped and ready for Thursday…

We’ve been trading inside narrow ranges for most of the week, but I’m seeing lots of “rotational” clues this afternoon that suggest a breakout might be right around the corner…

Breakouts are tricky because most of them fail, no matter how convincing they look at first. The key is waiting for the proper “proof” in momentum…

When you get the proof, you take the breakout. But when you don’t, you look for the ‘fake-out breakout’ instead. 

It’s easier than it sounds, let me show you…
