trading the gap

Question

Guest sonny5

Hello Trader

Can someone help with this question. I trade the gap specifically on Monday. How do you determine the close end of week trading. For example do you consider the official close for the AUSTRALIAN  200 INDEX AT 400 pm on Friday or the after hour close for the index to make a decision for filling the gap on Monday.

Your based on experience response is much appreciated.

You need to study your specific market closely.  I trade the DAX, where the cash gaps are a daily thing, but the futures gaps tend to be weekly.  Both tend to get filled, but in different 'ways'.  You also need to be cognizant of whether you are trading during open-outcry, in which case cash index is the dominant.

PS> Gaps are not always filled, Check out the gap near Gold's all time high (I've often heard there are a couple of large positions still open 8+ years, still hoping the price comes back).

i always use cash market closes for this

Thanks George  Jut to confirm so you use the close of the normal trading session like from 1000 am to 400pm talking here about share indexe like DAX,aus 200 and wall st. You dont use the after market trading closes.

It's a difficult question to answer @sonny5, but I suspect it's best to use the price (gaps) on the IG chart if trading on the IG platform. IG get their prices from sources other than just the main exchange which has the Dow listed at the Friday 9pm (UK time) close price of 25983.94. Might be worth getting some stats to see if the exchange closing price is filled after Sunday and Monday London trading sessions but I would be be surprised if that was the case.

    • In the chart, you can see the percentage changes of ETF purchases and Bitcoin prices over the last 7 months. Since I could not find such a chart on the market, I created the visual from my own data and will update it weekly. Now let's move on to the chart. There are two main lines on the chart: Blue Line (Change in ETF Calls): This line shows how much ETF purchases increased or decreased as a percentage. For example, if ETF purchases increased by 10% in a week, the blue line moves upward. If it decreased by 5%, the blue line moves downwards. Red Line ($BTC Price Change): This line shows how much Bitcoin prices increased or decreased in percentage. For example, if the $BTC price increased by 15% in a week, the red line moves upward. If it decreased by 8%, the red line moves downwards. The purpose of the chart is to show how ETF purchases and percentage changes in BTC prices are related over time. This 100% helps us understand how Bitcoin prices react when ETF purchases increase or decrease. I observe that in the weeks when ETF purchases increase, Bitcoin prices also increase at the same rate or very close to it. There is certainly a positive relationship between these two variables, but it is striking that they are so similar in percentage terms. In this way, we will be able to predict not how much Bitcoin will fall, but how much it will increase that week, at least as a percentage as ETF purchases. Accordingly, $BTC long position can be taken.   PS: (I may have had a problem uploading the graphic I prepared. I can send it to anyone who wants.)

This analysis focuses on identifying and interpreting market movements within a counter trend. The mode of the analysis is corrective, indicating that the current wave pattern represents a correction within the larger trend. The specific wave structure under observation is Orange Wave 2, signifying that the market is in the second wave of an overall corrective pattern. Within this structure, the position is Navy Blue Wave 3, indicating that the currency pair is in the third wave of a smaller degree within the Orange Wave 2. The analysis anticipates the next higher degree direction to be Orange Wave 3. After the completion of Orange Wave 2, a new impulsive phase, Orange Wave 3, is expected to commence, likely leading to a resumption of the broader trend. Details provided in the analysis highlight that Orange Wave 1 appears to be completed, and the market is currently progressing through Orange Wave 2. This suggests that the market is undergoing a corrective phase after the completion of the first wave. The current focus is on the development and completion of Orange Wave 2 before transitioning into Orange Wave 3. A critical aspect of this analysis is the wave cancellation invalid level, set at 1.26113. This level serves as a threshold to validate or invalidate the current wave analysis. If the market price surpasses this level, it would invalidate the current wave analysis, requiring a reassessment of the wave structure. This invalidation level is essential for maintaining the accuracy of the wave analysis and ensuring effective risk management. In summary, the GBPUSD daily chart analysis identifies the market within a corrective counter trend, focusing on the development of Orange Wave 2 within Navy Blue Wave 3. The analysis suggests that Orange Wave 1 is completed, and the market is now in Orange Wave 2. The next anticipated phase is Orange Wave 3. The wave cancellation invalid level at 1.26113 is crucial for validating the current wave count and maintaining risk management.   GBPUSD Elliott Wave Analysis: 4-Hour Chart British Pound/U.S. Dollar (GBPUSD) 4-Hour Chart Analysis GBPUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function: Counter Trend Mode: Corrective Structure: Orange Wave 2 Position: Navy Blue Wave 3 Direction Next Higher Degrees: Orange Wave 3 Details: Orange Wave 1 completed, Orange Wave 2 in play Wave Cancel Invalid Level: 1.26113 The GBPUSD Elliott Wave Analysis on the 4-hour chart examines the British Pound to U.S. Dollar currency pair using Elliott Wave Theory.
