Well thanks for you input!

Maybe this is a hint at me to rethink my use of stop loss orders in the ES

And again my SL is hit at very top of swing. Must be either unlucky today or wrong for using hard stop loss orders - even though this is far outside of RTH. Though one could argue that the lower volume at this time makes manipulation easier...

More than 100 contracts were traded @85.25, so nothing special.

If the stop @85.25 was used for more than a scalp (then it could be ok), it looks like a typical "pure" RM/MM stop.
Why? It was set completely regardless of market conditions: @85.25 is inside the last superior RTH swing (89-77) and inside of yesterday's ETH value area,
i.e. 70%+ of yesterday's prices were in that region. Setting stops that way you can close positions in advance most of the time and will be better off.

P.S.: If you consider 89-77 as a PA inside, your superior swing is 2073-89 which would make the stop @85.25 even worse.
