Welcome to GAP Hounds. This board is all about a specific technical analysis theory, the retracing of GAP formations

This board is for discussing GAP theory and helping our fellow traders with spotting GAPs in the wild.
We trade based on the theory that nature abhors a vacuum and that 90% of all Gaps will be retraced at some point. We use these formations to make predictions about future chart moves.   
Posts of spotted gaps should include a chart link if possible. if not, give price and time data of the Gap in question.
Posts just spamming tickers will be deleted. (we already have plenty of P&D boards)

BIEL: A good example of GAPs. It has Gapped 4 times since April. All but the most recent have retraced predictably.
( I will try and fill the Ibox with info on this theory as I get time)

laughThe best GAPS are found at the opening bell. Sudden jumps at opening show increased volatility which often retraces quickly.
laugh GAPS are found on Candlestick or Bar charts, you won't see them on a line chart.
surpriseGaps appearing on small scales (15 minutes or less) and intra-day (not at 9:30 am) are typically signs of low interest and activity, not an increase.
