Price breakouts

The August 2012 edition of the ASX Investor Update newsletter featured an article from Robert Brain with
a discussion on the topic of chart breakouts, and
examples on four stocks: LYC, RSG, MMX, SGP.
Below are all six price charts to supplement the article,
(including two extra charts and larger versions of the charts)
and a special offer for Investor Update readers.
Breakout on Resolute Mining.

Please read on for more details about Breakouts...


At any one point in time it is normal for the stock market participants who have an interest in a stock to have their own opinions about the “fair value” of the stock, and these opinions will fall into a range in share price. The participants rarely agree on just one price. Depending on the particular stock, and on many factors such as the latest news and announcements, this price range could be a small range, or it could be large. At some stage, if all of the interested sellers of the stock have finished selling, and if only buyers are left, then the share price will move higher. And conversely, if all the buyers have finished buying, then the share price will move lower. And it is possible that news or announcements can precipitate a move in share price.
