Order Flow Trading

I've found a few months ago some interesting discussions about a trading method called Order Flow trading and I'm wondering if anyone else on the forum here is applying something similar? I've learnt most about it from Daemon Goldsmith's book Order Flow Trading, research papers about market microstructure and trading forums.

I'm relatively new to this, but from what I've understood, the primary goal is predicting future order flow in the markets by reading sentiment and understanding what other market participants do. I'm now applying the basic concepts I've got from the book, it is about hunting stops of the traders that are on the wrong side of the markets - trading against sentiment. An example would be hunting the sell stops of traders that are long AUD/USD despite negative fundamentals/sentiment.

I've had great results so far, but I haven't spent enough time yet applying the method and I will probably need to test out other strategies too. But it seems much better than technical analysis because we can understand much clearer why certain things occur in the markets. It seems price moves are not that random as I've thought previously.

So if there is anyone a bit more experienced in applying the method - please share your insights! I think we can build a great thread with an interesting discussion.
