Areas where stops are placed are Key-Levels.

Often traders use "round numbers" for stops.

The range +/- 15 pips of a 100-level (30-pip-range) is referred to as "trade zone".
Comparable to the 20-yard line in football, there is a high probability that the 100-level is reached, when the price touched the "trade zone".

For the visualization of these price levels, we provide a separate function: PL_RULE100.

In contrast the PL_fxStopHunt price levels are based on the analysis of price movements on the higher timeframe (hourly chart) from the previous week and targeting to the larger price movements based on the same principles.
The PL_fxStopHunt lines are especially helpful at the beginning ot the week. They show, that you should expect counter-movements, so that "weak hands" are shaken off bevor increased price movements.

Stop-Hunting of large market participants is one of the simplest and most effective forex setups that are available for short-term traders !
