Breakers

Here is a picture, chart of what i think is an ICT breaker block, though they seem very similar to mitigation, is mitigation the same thing as a breaker block, or more over, is mitigating using the breaker block to do just that?

Re: Breaker Blocks

Mitigation Blocks are reversal of Order Blocks.

"Breakers" are specific Mitigation Blocks that were used to run Stops. They're specific, short-term Orders placed specifically for a Judas swing or Stop Run.

See my attachment for what I would normally qualify as the breaker in that situation. However, you do point out a run back to a Mitigation block, that's double stacked. Note how much that big Bullish OB during LO is worked back in before it's reversed. After breaking the Low, it popped back up real fast to the wicks of that bigger +OB within LO to unwind what they could before taking off for +90.

Isn't this just literal support/resistance and support/resistance flipped?
Inversion Levels on higher time frames are a form of the Mitigation moves, correct. But it's not "just" S&R. It's what creates them and why they work.


Cable gave kind of a hilarious set of Breaker/Mitigation play today. The AR High Breaker was setup at the Day Open level. Look how many times it got worked today.

Yes.

Complexity is your enemy.

S&R rules the game. It is that simple. As for the whys and wherefores, who gives a shit?

Like I said to OTL just now - " all this learning to understand why , you end up with order blocks and stop runs.. but really its just support turned resistance like you learned as a baby .. babypips 101" :)

The original post image I created for this breaker was wrong I suspect, this is the image edited to what I think is correct,
with the red circle at the low of the bearish breaker candle

Re: Breaker Blocks

Hi SQA:

So from this, is it fair to say:

all breaker blocks are mitigation blocks but not all mitigation blocks are breaker blocks.

Breaker blocks are those mitigation blocks which run stops.

On the other hand, mitigation blocks do not run stops. A mitigation block is an order block which gets traded thru (stops retial traders out) and then works in the reverse direction as losses are mitigated by the big banks and institutions?

These 2 have been a big sticking point for me. Appreciate your inputs,

Re: Breaker Blocks

Simply put a Breaker is the Surge in price before the stop run
Ie If a stop run is to the down side, a breaker is the "bullish breaker" surge before they run it lower, then the "surge bullish breaker" is your level of support - Example Chart on Fiber this week
