A price gap is generated by an opening that is outside previous day or in the range of other period. The gaps are usually plotted over bar charts are common in futures market. The trading occurs in the futures market throughout a day but the opening occurs in the market only for a third in the whole day. Cash market trades the whole day and gaps arises between the periods of two days. The various types of gaps that arise in the market are common, exhaustion, runaway and breakaway.
Common Gaps for Determining Foreign Exchange Rates
This type of gap has less importance in the determination of foreign exchange rates compared to the other types of gaps in the market. These gaps are not used for the indication of trend start, reversal, continuation or for the direction of currency. Common gaps are most commonly seen in the illiquid markets. When the price gaps arise in the illiquid markets in the case of expiration of distant currency futures, the gaps need to be ignored completely. The distant expiration dates are entered on the basis of closing and they are not used for the indication of trading activity. Trading need not be done in illiquid market as it is very expensive as well as difficult to close the trade in such a market. By the occurrence of gaps in the regular range of trading, filling of gaps need to be done. The common gaps are usually of very short term.
These kinds of gaps occur in the beginning of new trend and at end of a consolidation period which is very long. These gaps can also occur soon after some charts get completes within a consolidation period of short term. These gaps indicate a sudden change in the approach towards trading and it arises in the market where there is a heavy volume of trading. Traders get frustrated due to the consolidation periods that have less chance for producing trade. The traders, who are interested to make high profit, optimise the broken lane which is slow. For the traders to get participated in the currency market consider the variations in foreign exchange rates, take price in the secondary location. Naysayers usually follow breakout that happens initially. The breakaway gaps won’t be filled at the time of breakouts or after this stage. The various signals associated with these gaps are price direction; they do not provide price objective and indication of the future with the increase in the demand for the currency.
Runaway gaps are also called as measurement gaps that arise in the trends which are solid. These gaps got its name because they occur during the middle of a trend’s life. On measuring the range of previous trend and extrapolating with gap of measurement, the end of trend as well as price objective can be identified.
These gaps may arise either at bottom or at top of a pattern at the time of the change in the direction of a trend quickly.
