What is Line Break Chart?

Line break charts are sentiment indicators similar to Renko Chart, Point and Figure etc and they show charts with minimised noise as compared to a regular candlestick chart. A clue to understanding these charts is in the name; these are a type of breakout chart. They are distinctive because they only show significant price moves. Significant price moves occur when the closing price is higher or lower than the preceding bars.

Three line break charts are based solely on the closing price and do not display any intraday movements. This is based on the idea that the closing price is the most important price of the day. In this system, each bar is referred to as a line. As with all charting techniques, chartists should employ other technical analysis tools to confirm or refute their findings on Three Line Break charts.
