    In order to get information from others you should be willing to share information. What bull and bear traps are institutions using?

    Here's another one;
    get you a battle tested plan, that way its profit or loss, not trap or traps.
    WHILE we can still see some old time bear traps, for sale, not really relevant application in trading.
    I see your point, + makes for fun drama, but most institutions are much more concerned with profit + loss............................................................................IF some could get your mind off a plan of profit + loss/that 's a trap for sure.

    Doesn't speak to your exact question but you should be careful shorting small cap names. If the company you're holding short gets bought out by a larger entity the stock price could double(or triple)overnight. And depending on your position size that could be an account ending event. I do a lot of shorting and personally live in mortal fear of that very thing happening.

    WHALE trap is a good one to avoid;
    anytime you see a pattern like a killer whale, example stock BB, best not to get on that/LOL. Even the so called pros have gotten killed on that pattern.

    @murray_t_turtle I’ve never heard of whale traps. Is it also applicable for the forex market because bear and bull traps are there and I know pretty much about that but the Whale trap is something new for me.
