If I submit enough orders to take out more then a single level on the book then it is logical to assume it will trigger the stop limits before the HFT can respond. On the other hand, if I clear a level normally then the HFT will probably be able to fill before the stop limits.

Due to e.g. iceberg orders (which also can be cancelled) we can be pretty sure that an HFT will be able to
fill before the stop limits - even if you clear the first (visible) amount. (Keyword: Display quantity)
