    Hi!

    I have read that big FX players utilize stop-hunting egies. Can anyone explain how they do it?

    Traders from large banks can see the customer's orders and their SL levels so they move the market to close them. See for example brief spikes following NY session near. The same is in the first hour of Frankfurt session, and throughout the first half an hour of London and NY session.

    Occasionally at periods of temporary low volatility they do the same throughout the day.

    Kolejna sprawa to gra przeciw popularnym systemom.

    Hope that this helps...

    Occasionally at periods of temporary low volatility they perform exactly the same throughout the day.

    I don't know how accurate that is for retail traders since it takes a lot of cash to move the market. They wouldn't do it for just a few lots. Maybe they hunt the stops of institutional players or large boys but then again they should know better not to use SLs but plogical stops.

    Any thoughts on this?

    thats not a classical stop hunting but an illuion of a brokers fraud.

    Read what broker.s state here:

    quit hunting is a legitimate type of trading. It is nothing more than the craft of flushing the shedding players from this market. A quote from here

    simple. . .just place buy stop or sell stop instead of buy limit or sell limit for entering the order, and it must go in your favor ofcourse...

    There is nothing like quit hunting. Price is moving towards your stop due to lack of bandwidth in the prices going to your stoploss price
