I have received email in this regard with this question , is it mathematically controlled by the market makers is the question,
'For whatever reason, many traders believe the market is controlled to ensure that they lose. These traders believe that the market makers are specifically looking at their account and driving the market in the opposite direction. Have you ever thought that? Did you watch yourself place a SELL trade, and then the market completely does the opposite and knocks you out of the trade? '
I don't believe that it is, but some times in low volumes it could be possible ?? I am sure that we all experience this as stated here in the email and good topic for discussion, I have my thoughts about it and will share it in this discussion on how to beat it and be profitable , like everything you need a starting point and that starting point seems to be a problem for lot of traders ,
I will share some of my strategies which are simple but effective , but first lets get this question in the open , I would like to hear from you traders on your thoughts on this subject 😐
This is a complex question.
Market makers do not hunt for single traders, but often times the trader is part of the herd.
Actions of single trader cannot be predicted but herd behaviour remains the same and is predictable.
They see both side of the markets and specific algorithms are able to mark the price up/down if the movement pays of.
Its not betting for them. Its simple math.
retail traders are insignificant part of the herd, biggest part of the herd are actually fund managers / bank traders that are paid no matter what and its only a job for them.
In any occasion, market makers do not fight the crowd, they just take advantage of it.
And they have many tricks in the book.
Idea that someone is hunting for your silly stop loss is just ridiculous if you do not trade with some bucket shop broker.
