BB - I know. And I reiterate I know.

I've also seen the article before, seen the film, read the book
:shock:

Tell me where it is in Seiden's philosophy to trade into (i.e. fade) the gap? Does he not say that it is a novice way to trade? Am I saying to fade the gap or do the complete opposite????? These are rhetorical questions

Which way was price moving on that chart prior to the gap? Is it at the start or end of a move? These are rhetorical questions.

Price move up, gap down at start of move = ??? Supply? This is a rhetorical question.

There's also a HUGE difference between a gap that occurs midweek and one when your charting starts on a Sunday.

Board members at Kreslik. Please don't start talking down to me again LOL. Only a few weeks ago half of you were still trying to trade momo bars back to front (as I was) so please...don't.

Sorry, I write a LOT of rhetorical questions and I don't think, a lot of the time, people on here read them as such.

Maybe that's a little harsh.

Sorry.
