Known to forex trading is the big risk associated with the large fluctuation especially when using high leverage with the instrument being traded. But what if there's a way of catching the earliest stage of a reversal and the beginning of a large trend follows. Day, swing, or position traders alike all benefit from patiently waiting for the right time before placing entries, picking the least risky and the most rewarding trade.
Stop losses are pending buy or sell orders conveniently (obviously) placed close to previous swing highs or lows. Big players buy pending sell order of one trader, to sell to pending buys order of another trader, effectively providing liquidity. As a consequence, the clever wins while the unsuspecting retail trader loses. Some small players put the blame on their brokers, accusing them of stops hunting. On the other hand, large players insist on the premiss of doing their job by providing liquidity. But who's ultimately aiming to make big money? Everyone of course, small and large players alike.

Last month month I've been talking about some reasons why Forex Brokers are not hunting your stop and that blog post has become very popular and got a lot of interest among Dukascopy Community members, receiving only good feedback. In the first part of the article I'm going to cover this subject: "Does Your Broker Hunt Your Stop Loss" and in the second part I'm going to talk about what it really means stop

Does Your Broker Hunt Your Stop Loss?

i think most of the charts that you attached were when the market was in range or during low volatility time, well anyways i liked your article...I think most people lose during ranging market times. Best time to enter is when your sure about a high fundamental impact on a particular pair :p....Can generate alot of pips during that time. The challenge for all traders is of keeping the pips, and to make them consistently :)
