"Doing the opposite" is a difficult concept in trading, because often it is about timing and leverage rather than direction.

There is no opposite of 2PM - just a different time.
There is no opposite of 50% position size - just a different size.

This is a good point. In this context, however, the OP (RIP) said that the market was moving directionally opposite his position, so maybe in his case it would have been more straightforward to do the opposite.

Seems like most every time the price action Log jams up against my position and eventually breaks the opposite way aggressively no matter the market conditions or contract.

What I can personally confirm from my own experience is SOMETIMES when you submit a market order - even 1 contract - on a thin instrument like NQ, it MAY trigger algos to rip the opposite direction.
