What you have experienced is typical in the market. However, you have to strategically place your stops. Using Cash Stops...just selecting a number of pips from your entry, may not be the best way. You need to hide your stops behind the buyers and sellers in the market. How do you locate them? One way for sure is to observe where support (where there are pending buying orders) and resistance (where there are pending selling orders) areas are. Your stops should be placed on the other side of these areas. The idea is to use these orders as a buffer that would shield you from any market action to take you out. For example, if you were selling with resistance overhead, your stop should go above the resistance level.
Sometimes, if I use a larger stop that is hidden behind a support or resistance area, I place an alarmed line maybe 15 to 20 pips or so from my entry to alert me if the market is moving in the opposite direction. That way I can re-evaluate my setup and entry.
And yes, they do hunt the stops...that is money for them.
Hope that helps.
