# How to Trade Breakouts in Stock Indices

With **consolidation stock indices trading patterns** the stock indices trading market can move in any direction after a indices price breakout. Consolidation stock indices chart patterns are used to identify breakout patterns in indices charts. There are two types of consolidation stock indices chart patterns that form on stock indices charts:

- Symmetric Triangles - Consolidation Chart Patterns
- Rectangles - Range Indices Chart Patterns

## How to Trade Breakouts in Indices

**Symmetrical triangles** are stock indices chart patterns with converging trend lines that form a indices price consolidation period that signals there is going to be a indices price breakout in one direction after this stock indices chart pattern breaks out in one direction. The buy stock indices signal from a symmetrical triangle is the upside stock indices price break, while a downside stock indices price break is a sell signal. Ideally, a the stock indices price breaks out from a consolidation stock indices chart pattern prior to reaching the apex of the triangle.

**Indices Trend lines** indices trend lines can be drawn connecting the lows and highs of the consolidation pattern for the indices price, the trend lines formed are symmetric and converge to form an apex - symmetric triangle pattern. A stock indices price breakout should occur somewhere between 60% - 80% into the triangle consolidation stock indices chart pattern. An early or late indices breakout is more prone to indices whipsaws, and therefore less reliable. After a indices price breakout to one side the apex of the symmetric triangle forms the support and resistance levels for the indices price. Indices price that has broken out of the consolidation stock indices chart pattern should not retrace past the apex. The apex is used as a stop loss setting level for the open stock indices trades placed after a indices price break out.

When indices consolidation patterns form we say that the indices market is taking a break before deciding the next direction to take - this also signals an impending stock indices price breakout - How to Trade Breakouts in Stock Indices - How Do I Identify Breakout Pattern? - Breakout Strategy Indices.

A rectangle consolidation stock indices chart pattern is a trading range with narrow stock indices price action that forms a consolidation period in stock index market. The indices trading range is defined by two parallel indices trend lines which are horizontal and these indicate the presence of support and resistance levels at this particular area. Rectangle consolidation stock indices chart pattern is drawn on a index chart trading using a rectangle, therefore thus its name **indices rectangle stock indices trading chart pattern**.

For this indices consolidation stock indices chart pattern, stock indices price forms a series of highs and lows that can be connected with horizontal indices trend lines that are parallel to each other. Rectangle consolidation stock indices chart pattern forms over an extended period of time giving this indices pattern its rectangle shape.

A indices breakout of stock indices price action from this rectangle consolidation stock indices chart pattern occurs when either of the horizontal line is penetrated and the indices trading range of this rectangle indices pattern is broken. An upside stock indices price breakout is a buy signal. A downside stock indices price breakout is a sell signal.
