Learn Forex –EURUSD Daily Breakout

The Basics of a Forex Breakout

Many traders choose to trade breakouts due to their simplicity and effectiveness. To begin, traders will use entry orders to establish a price where they wish to enter into the market. If the price you select becomes available for trading your order will then be executed. This can be a huge benefit to traders that can’t monitor the market 24Hrs a day. Even if you’re away from the trading screen, if the price you select becomes available, after a breakout in the market, your trade will be executed. Let’s look at an example using the EURUSD.

To take advantage of a breakout on the EURUSD, entry orders should be placed above a point of resistance in its current uptrend. In the chart below, resistance has been identified as the current peak on the daily chart at1.3389. Orders should be set above this point, so in the event that price breaks through orders will already be set and waiting for execution. To limit risk, traders will also include a stop underneath current resistance levels to exit a position in the event that it reverses.
