heavy volume on break out is a relaible indicator but never forget to put ur stoploss,this is the most important indicator than anything else.

Checked the close of KEC? Price precedes everything. Price precedes technicals, technicals precedes news :D. Check my post on Radico, very similar breakout it has reached the mentioned targets.

how can i use metastock to detect breakout?
Here is the Metastock formula for breakout detection

Consolidation Breakout Upside
If(Ref(Fml("Congestion Index"),-5),<,10,
{and} If(Fml("Congestion Index"),>=,10,
{and} If(CLOSE,>,Ref(HHV(C,80),-5),
{and} If(Mov(V,5,S),>=,1.5*(Ref(Mov(V,60,S),-5)),+1,0),0),0),0)

Consolidation Breakout Downside
If(Ref(Fml("Congestion Index"),-5),<,10{%},
{and} If(Fml("Congestion Index"),>=,10{%},
{and} If(CLOSE,<,Ref(LLV(C,80),-5),
{and} If(Mov(V,5,S),>=,1.5*(Ref(Mov(V,60,S),-5)),+1,0),0),0),0)

Congestion Index

((HHV(C,80)-LLV(C,80))/LLV(C,80))*100

You can use these formulas in the explorers to screen the stocks
hope this helps

when you use this on KEC is it successful?

The formula I gave was from guppytraders.com. After experimenting with this I found that we have to fine tune this to suit the market condition. The formula assumes that during consolidation the congestion index is less than 10% and the consolidation period is quite long. In a fast market like the one we are seeing the consolidation period is short and the the congestion value is rarely less than 10%. So after some fine tuning I found that 15% congestion value is more appropriate for our present bullish market we are seeing. Also I reduced to period to 40. With this the Indicator does show the breakout for KEC. Also for D-LINK which jumped up by 15 points the Indicator showed the breakout. My tuned formula is given below for your reference. Iam enclosed the charts also.

Consolidation Breakout - Upside
If(Ref(Fml("Congestion Index"),-5),<,15,
{and} If(Fml("Congestion Index"),>=,15,
{and} If(CLOSE,>,Ref(HHV(C,40),-5),
{and} If(Mov(V,5,S),>=,1.5*(Ref(Mov(V,40,S),-5)),+1,0),0),0),0)

Consolidation Index
((HHV(C,40)-LLV(C,40))/LLV(C,40))*100
