Hi John,

I have been trading this method since the start of February and it has done very well for me. There have been a couple of mess ups (see EUR/JPY on 13th September) but on the whole its been a winner for me.
Its not my strategy as I was shown it by someone on another forum that I am a member of but there is plenty of info on the web and on the Trade2win forums. Trader_Dante has written a few things on it which can be found by the search tab above.

See:

http://www.trade2win.com/boards/trad...s-journal.html
(see post 5)

Also go onto YouTube and search for "Forex Gaps" as there are plenty of videos on there.

I bet that after writing this there isn't gonna be any gaps tonight now

Neil

Look at the IG Index chart for EUR/USD on last Friday Evening / Sunday Evening 8th / 9th October. You will see the 40 pips odd gap between the Close and Open prices with fresh air inbetween! The Gap did close by 50% (20 pips) before retrace and I took 10 of these.

It really is shockingly simple DS ?

Hey Mark,
I'm on Capital Spreads, but I don't see any gap on the EUR/USD pair, closes on Friday at 1.3928 and opened on Sunday at same price!!
Am I missing something here??

Regards
DS

Look at IG Index Charts "bid" price. Eur/USD close 22.00 (10pm) Friday 8th Oct @ 13938.4. Open Sunday 10th Oct 21.00 (9pm) at price 13985.6.

Gap = 47.2 pips.

Hi DS,
I am on IG, and as of 20.40 there is no price for today, do Capital Spreads kick off before the rest?

John

Re: Trading Gaps

Way I see it, markets opened about 8 minutes ago. We have gaps on
GBP/USD
EUR/GBP
EUR/USD
USD/CAD

Not massive gaps though so not much trading room. What you going for Mark or Slopius?

I'm on IG. Hit refresh on the main page and re-open charts and should work.

I'm keeping it to a minimum tonight. Trading short on EUR/GBP and short on USD/CAD.

Already in and only going for 10 pips on each.

Fingers crossed and good luck all who go for it.

Cheers,
Andy

Yes. As far as the charts are concerned the markets haven't re-opened. I've looked at charts at this time on a Sunday night previously and never had a problem.
