Mixing Method Recommendation

Hello CP2k Group,

Should first state that I am new the DFT field.

Had a query on which mixing procedure to selected to be applied to the 
density matrix.  I have selected the BROYDEN_MIXING_NEW method in my system 
but without much basis for this other than I observed the first version of 
the method being selected in the cp2k tutorial.

Could someone please advise me on the suitability of this mixing method for 
my system or suggest possible reading material on this topic.

The system I am modelling is the geometry optimization of the MOF HKUST-1, 
my cell is 156 atoms made up of copper, carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. I will 
be using the m06-l functional.
Currently my single energy point calculations are converging. 

Any information would be greatly appreciated,

Also, apologies if this amount of information is insufficient for my query 
and will happily add additional if needed.
