That's really good thinking. I trade ES and I do only trade 1 lot, thats why i found it really strange. Just reading from your answer, that many occurrences might be pure coincidence where i'm in at the same time with the bigger lot trader/s. Thanks!

One lot is like a shrimp in the ocean, nobody will care about what you are doing...
it's an advantage at the same time....

Once you are trading bigger quantities , algos will hunt your stop for liquidity
if it is significant enough
