I have a system that uses some home made indicators combined with support and and resistance levels. It provides a few great entry points every day and very few signals should turn into losses. My problem is that the market is looking over my shoulder. It knows when I take a trade and knows where my stop is placed. I'd swear the emini trades thousands of contracts just to go right to my stops then snaps right back and continues to make the move I expected without me. If I put in a tighter entry limit price to enter then the market teases me by trading at my price without a fill before it takes off without me. If I chase the market at all, it invariably just sucks me in just to turn and go hunting for my stop. If I widen my stop out the market will break any and all support levels to reach my stop. Regardless of where I put my stop, tight, loose or in between, the market can almost always find it. It wouldn't be so bad if after hitting my stop the market the market would keep on going, but NO. It likes to hit my stop by a tick or two then scream back in my direction. So, why don't I just put my entry order where I would place my stop, you ask? Tried that. The market knows its an entry order and not a stop and never trades there. Once in a while the market does what I expect for a while. Then it wants to make sure I didn't move my stop to break-even and will run back to my entry price just to get me out. If it fails to trick me with that maneuver, it will screw around after moving just a little making what appears to be topping action forcing me to grab a quick small profit. Within moments of getting me out, the market continues its move without me. If I fail to grab the small profit offered to me the market will turn against me and turn that small profit into a loss or break even if I'm lucky. Am I the only one here that the market is gunning for? Do others find the market knows when you have a position and knows where your stops are? Or are you the one who is looking over my shoulder and using me for your personal ATM?
