Most traders are familiar with the Breakout Strategy, where you identify an area of support and resistance which price eventually breaks out from. This is a strategy used world wide, however there are a lot of FAKE breakouts. One way to identify a REAL breakout is to look at the order flow. If a breakout is supported by order flow then the chances of a continued move dramatically increases. This is because the order flow is telling us that the breakout was a global move. Example if we look at a bullish Breakout on EUR/USD without order flow, we dont know if EUR is actually strong and USD weak because we are only looking at EUR/USD. If we apply order flow to the equation and positive order flow is present at the breakout then this means that EUR is actually strong on a global scale and USD weak. Meaning on most pairs EUR is increasing in value and USD is declining. This give us a massive advantage when trading Breakout !!!
Rules: Open a buy position when price breaks above resistance. Place the stop loss at the low of the signal-candle. This is where we place our risk because price should not be able to re-visit this level. Take profit when the signals disappear, this indicates that the order flow is no longer present. After a breakout, you can keep adding positions on every green arrow – remember only add positions to winning trades and let them run! If you follow this you will have a massive advantage trading breakouts. Personally I have been trading with 2 strategies in the last 10 years, this is one and the other one is a pullback strategy where I wait for price to pullback to a fib level before entering.

Keep in mind that the order flow indicators was made to serve the Daily Time Frame, but it will work on all time frames, however I recommend not going any lower than the H1.
