breakout
A situation in which a security or index trades and closes above a resistance level or below a support level. A technician often interprets a breakout as a confirmation of a market trend and will typically expect the volume, volatility, and momentum triggered by the breakout to correlate with the importance of the resistance or support it penetrated.
