Understanding the 10 Minute Consolidation Breakout Alert

This alert describes a consolidation breakout pattern and describes the same general pattern as the channel breakout alert. However, this alert uses more traditional methods of analysis, and may be easier to see on a stock chart. For one thing, this alert works on one specific time frame, where the channel breakout alert automatically looks at a wide range of timeframes. Also, this alert pays more attention to time, and very little attention to volume. Finally, this alert does not require any confirmation; a single print can create an alert.

To see this alert clearly, configure your stock chart to show candlesticks. And show exactly 41 periods in the chart. This pattern will be visible on other charts, but it will be easiest to spot on a chart configured in this way.

Our definition of a consolidation removes any stock with empty candles. If a stock hasn’t traded at all in some time, that does not count as a consolidation pattern. Each candle in the consolidation must contain at least one print

Default Settings

By default, the 10 Minute Consolidation Breakout alert will appear when the stock price moves upward outside of the range of the consolidation pattern. If the price continues to move in the same direction, and it moves quickly enough and far enough, we will report additional alerts.
