Why Are Stop Loss Affected More Often Than Take Profit? in Forex Education_xx

This is a market reality that confuses traders, especially those who are just learning, accumulating experience towards professionalism. Yes, from my trading experience, I wonder why SL is always hit more often than TP. Many argue that the problem is in the 3R - Risk to Reward Ratio. Suppose the ratio is 1: 3, SL 20 pips and TP 60 pips. Since the TP is farther away than the SL, it's only natural that the SL is hit more often. It makes sense. But in fact not either. I sometimes have a 1:1 ratio, 50 pips of SL and 50 pips of TP, it's still SL that gets hit first, even though the price finally reverses until it hits the current TP
What's wrong. Does the market have eyes? Does the market hate us? Are most traders doomed to lose? Who knows. What do you guys think?

This is because we do not want to accept losses, and when we profit we want a lot, so this kind of thing will happen
