IRCTC may become a strong positive breakout candidate in the coming time. The stock price is currently trading at Rs 746 and has witnessed the formation of a rectangle chart pattern. The RSI, ADX and other parameters of technical analysis are in sync with the breakout.
The rectangle chart pattern is a technical analysis tool used by traders to identify potential trading opportunities. It forms when the price of an asset consolidates within a defined range bounded by parallel lines of support and resistance. This consolidation period represents a pause in the prevailing trend, often indicating indecision among buyers and sellers.
Two horizontal lines, one for support and one for resistance, define the rectangle’s upper and lower boundaries. The price oscillates between these lines, creating a sideways trading range. Rectangles can last for weeks or even months, depending on the market and the asset being traded. Volatility within the rectangle tends to be lower than during trending periods.
Traders use rectangle patterns to identify potential breakout opportunities. A breakout occurs when the price breaks decisively above the resistance line in a bullish rectangle or below the support line in a bearish rectangle. This breakout typically signals the resumption of the previous trend, offering opportunities for long or short trades, respectively.
