How to Use Rectangle Chart Patterns to Trade Breakouts

Bullish and Bearish Rectangle Forex Chart Pattern

A rectangle is a chart pattern formed when price is bounded by parallel support and resistance levels.

A rectangle exhibits a period of consolidation or indecision between buyers and sellers as they take turns throwing punches but neither has taken over.

The price will “test” the support and resistance levels several times before eventually breaking out. From there, the price could trend in the direction of the breakout, whether it is to the upside or downside.

In the example above, we can clearly see that the pair was bounded by two key price levels which are parallel to one another. We just have to wait until one of these levels breaks and go along for the ride!

 

Remember, when you spot a rectangle: THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!

Bearish Rectangle

A bearish rectangle is formed when the price consolidates for a while during a downtrend. This happens because sellers probably need to pause and catch their breath before taking the pair any lower.

In this example, price broke the bottom of the rectangle chart pattern and continued to shoot down. If we had a short order just below the support level, we would have made a nice profit on this trade.

Here’s a tip: Once the pair falls below the support, it tends to make a move that is about the size of the rectangle pattern. In the example above, the pair moved beyond the target so there would have been a chance to catch more pips!

 

Bullish Rectangle

Here’s another example of a rectangle, this time, a bullish rectangle chart pattern. After an uptrend, the price paused to consolidate for a bit. Can you guess where the price is headed next?

If you answered up, then you’re right! Check out that nice upside breakout right there!

Notice how the price moved all the way up after breaking above the top of the rectangle pattern. If we had a long order on top of the resistance level, we would’ve caught some pips on the trade!

 

Just like in the bearish rectangle pattern example, once the pair breaks, it will usually make a move that’s AT LEAST the size of its previous range.

矩形(箱形)形态组合

       当价格受平行的支持和阻力位限制时,就形成了矩形形态。

       矩形形态代表着一段时间,买家和卖家的整顿和犹豫不决,这期间买卖双方彼此轮流出拳,但都赢不了对方。

       价格将会在数次“测试”支持和阻力位后,突破而出。那时候,价格可能会往突破的方向走一段的距离,无论是向上或向下突破时。

       从上面的例子中,我们可以清楚地看到,货币对受两个平行的关键价位所限制的。我们只需要休息一下子,等到某一方突破价位时才去加入趋势!记住,一旦你发现一个矩形形态: 跳出盒子外去思考!

熊市矩形

       一个熊市的矩形,通常在一段下跌的趋势后出现价格整理而形成。这是因为卖方可能需要停下来喘口气,然后才把货币对带到更低的价格。

       在这个例子中,价格打破了矩形的底部,并继续暴跌。如果我们在支撑位的下面,有设置空单的话,我们将会在这交易中获得不错的利润。

       这里有一个技巧:当货币对跌破支撑位时,它一般移动的趋势长度,大约是形态的尺寸大小。上面的例子中,货币对移动的距离超越了目标,所以这将会是个得到更多点数的机会!

牛市矩形

       这是另外一个矩形的例子,这次是牛市矩形。经过一段上升趋势后,价格会停下来整顿一下。你能猜出价格下一步会怎么走吗?

       如果您的回答是上升趋势,那么你对了咯!看看在这儿发生的这些漂亮的向上突破!

       注意价格在超过矩形顶部之后,是如何扶摇直上的。如果我们在阻力位上方已经下了多单,那么我们会在这交易获得一些点数!

       就像在熊市矩形的例子中一样,一旦货币对突破后,它通常的移动距离,最少会是之前形态的大小。
