Trading/Charting ?? /Hal/Trades/All

Hi Hal, Trades, All

Back on 10/20 I posed what I think was a "poorly worded question" on my part.

The question centered on "Bull/Bear Trap and The Triggering of Stops".

Yes, I understand the meaning/definitions, chart patterns of each but the real question is:

Outside of "Normal Market Behavior" what would an "Entity" have to do in order to "Manipulate" a market. ???

Include the "notion of being 'picked off' here as well"

I am interested in just how this might work/be implemented and by whom and at what cost.

I'm assuming some will have some thoughts on this, if not I will speculate on some thoughts as to how this might be brought about.

Thanks, Lee
