i place trades see it go 2-3 ticks against me instantly...it wasn't like anyone had to think about it what about that?

it was instantly

it was definitely an algo responding to my trade...and it was fading me automatically..or autoaxiomattilay..as you will

it was trying to stop me, moving up one level at a time, testing me

its bs, imo

Bound to happen, surely?

no not bound to happen but happens almost always...place trade and immediately trys to take you out by 2 or 3 ticks...just runs next level then waits. i don't take that bait, takes it up next level trying screw me out of another tick.

i've see it too many times to be a coincidence. or whatever..real phenomenon aqnd its algo's

if it was just random tom, i'd be up 3 ticks and down 3 ticks 50/50...but not like that,

as soon as i place the trade i'm out a tick or 2 immediately, never up a tick or 2 right away..

i have to grind those out

you don't see this too!!??

I'm not saying its random, but at close range to a current price there are only so many levels at which to place a rational stop. Its because traders don't randomly place stops that the market trades to trigger it. After all, even the stop-placer must have thought there was a reasonably foreseeable possibility of that price being hit, or why place it there? You cannot think that one broker, yours, could/would wish to move an entire currency market to hit your unique trade stop?
