Which type of order is better for a breakout strategy?

Most of the times when i use Limit order it never get executed as the price runs away.

Use SL OR SL-M order for breakout strategy.

For breakout Traders, if you are looking at the order book and then placing the limit orders, by the time you see the price on your order book the price does not exist in the exchange.

This is because most trading platforms displays order book with a 1/2 - 1 sec delay. This does not affect average traders, but for breakout traders it matters.

A breakout is a price movement of a currency pair through any known resistance level and it is follwed by the high volume and volatality. You need to buy the currency pair when the price break above the resistance level. Is it helpful guys?
