@Grantx, thanks for sharing this! This is a fascinating topic to me, I'm trying to learn more about identifying institutional behavior and all their different gambits. All I really know at this point is identifying the more obvious stuff like tails and range-extension, but I hope there's a lot more for me to learn here. Roughly-speaking, how far away do you tend to place your stops to avoid this?

I realized after posting this that this is a very open question since market-structure is ever-changing and evolving, thus the question of stop-placement is highly-dependent on that particular moment.

I also attempted to research more about identifying institutional or "other/higher-timeframe" activity and didn't get as far as I'd like. I will keep pressing on...
