Stop Hunts & and Market Manipulation

by Isaac Tekeste

Have you ever been in a trade and price reversed and went against you almost as soon as you entered the trade?  Have you then got stopped out only to watch price go in your intended direction without you? Why does that happen? Well it is easy to think in such situations that the markets are against you or that someone must be watching your every move. And to a degree – you are right, someone is watching over your shoulder and the markets do move against you. The problem is that unless you know what to look for, then this will continue to happen again and again. The question is how can you prevent it from reoccurring? How can you ensure you are on the right side of the market rather than on the wrong side?
