But the market will go out of it's way to make sure it runs as many stops as possible, even when these stops are placed outside of noise. I for my part don't care being stopped out. What really makes me angry is to be wiggled out of a position if the market actually goes the way I had expected. Either way it is tough. If one initiates a position as it breaks support one has to place a stop above previous resistance. If one initiates the same trade at resistance all the buy stops above resistance can run you over too... It's not so easy, unless you have a lot of experience, patience and funds to hold everything over.
