Hi Mary,

A Forex breakout occurs when the price of a particular currency moves away from a specified set average. It can also happen when the price level is contravened. The support level may be such as the resistance and the support levels. The breakout strategy aims at entering the Forex market when the price breaks out and hold that position until this volatility declines.
Forex breakouts are of two types, the continuation breakout, and reversal breakout. The kind of breakout you use will help you identify the trends in the individual market. Breakouts indicate the variations in the supply and demand in the currency pair you trade. These variations grant you an excellent opportunity to make a good profit.
When the market moves considerably in one direction, the market will most probably take a break. This will most often occur when the traders In the market take a breather to see what decision they will take up next. The results of this will be a range-bound movement known as consolidation. If traders see that the first trend is the best option and pursue the price in the initial direction, a continuation breakout will develop. It is merely a continuation of the original pattern.
Reversal breakout invokes similarly as the continuation breakout. When the trend is long, there will be a pause. However, in reverse breakout after the pause moment, the Forex trader will decide that this trend is exhaustive and impel the price contrariwise. 
However, there are at times where you may have false breakouts. They occur when the price moves beyond a certain level, such as the support and the resistance level, and doesn't proceed further. This breakout is usually risky and can result in losses.
