What is stop hunting

i am have read a few posts that mention “Stop hunting.” I didn’t see anything about this on baby pips again unless i overlooked it…i am just beginning my 2nd go around and have picked up some books but can someone advise in simple terms what this is/means?


Basically hunting for people’s stop loss to knock them out of the market. Not sure if it is true or who does it. I could imagine it would be possible for a big player to try to influence the market to hit people out. Even if they just move it a little, that is all you need sometimes!

check my thread in forexton called “can we really win” (something like that). i left some links that answer the question very well.
