Since Im now trading of more geologically inclined timframes, yes I do have time to trade :cool:

Got wicked out of my long EN position a couple of hours ago, doesnt look like Im going to get the retracement I want to renter on for some time yet... Love EN the D1(21) range is 215pips, its only 161 on GJ and I'll live with an extra 5 pips pf spread for another 50 of range :)

I wrote that quite a while ago, but I found I suck at gaps :lol:

G. (thanks everybody)

This is 1:30 EDT, 3 1/2 prior to open

I wonder if the data is accurate, or I need to wait until the market opens (suspect the later.

The shot, by the way, is from Bredin's II_DB_WGAP.

If correct, we have another AUD gap

I think we need to add spread, though I am pretty sure that while GA cost both arms and legs, EA only cost one arm.

Cool noushina, can you update the screenshot now? I think starting at 4EST price is more accurate, some brokers even open at that time.

And yes I always trade gaps while watching my spread indicator (attached).

II_DB_WGAP calculates this weeks gaps, but can only use data if your broker has opened for the week, and does require a tick or two to show the current data (and might just need some nudging by tf switching, an increasingly annoying MT4 trait).
