Price taking a small break near 50%, the usual small rebound, then probably another big red candle.

EDIT: Exactly what happened (in M5). But then price failed to continue down so I closed half positions. I hope my runners up will still be in profit for the AUD news.

There are no gaps on AUDUSD.

When will you guys understand that there are pre-market hours which many MT4 and retail brokers don't publish.

If you guys used a broker that showed you what price AUDUSD was at 14:00 EST, you would see that there is no gaps.

Gaps today.

Is this Gap indi available? I don't see it in the 2010 Donationals nor do I see it in the Motherlodes that I have downloaded.

Im just trying to help you out.

If you don't believe me find an MT4 indicator to plots out gaps and you will find that there were tons of gaps that were never filled.

eg, one was for AU on 13th of sept. It never filled and hasn't filled till this day.

If this gap fills, its out of pure coincidence. Most likely what caused the gap was to set off stops.

The only gap that I saw today was a small one on USDJPY.
