I have never placed a real FX trade, so bear with me here. I have seen quite a few people on the net claim that the dealing desk will trade against you, or look at your stops and stop you out just to take your pips. What I'm a little unclear on is why, out of ALL the trades being placed through their desk, with different stops, trades placed in opposite directions (buy or sell), etc. would they pick on ONE guy to trade against or stop out. And even if they did, would that not benefit a lot of other people who were trading in the opposite direction?
