Gap watching by Joe Van Nice
There's nothing on a chart that isn't laden with significance for a technical trader. Price ticks and
volume bars jump off the chart at your eye, but they're just the beginning. Even gaps, the blank spaces left
when prices leapfrog to a higher level, can be important technical indicators of the future.
Gaps are a chart's way of showing you the trading ranges in which no actual trading took place. Most are
easy to identify and to interpret since the price action immediately following a gap will identify the
upcoming price movement.
