There has been an unusual number of gaps made this week due to the recent surges in FTSE. I have put together a list of the ones I can see as tradeable. Only one I have on the list is a Sept BARC short @471.5
Del - gaps happen all the time but this week was different in that the FTSE was pulled up quickly and quite a few stocks leapt. I dont usually trade gaps I just thought it was interesting that so many and some quite sizeable ones had appeared suddenly. AVZ being a choice pick !
The idea is that you would look to short or long for a recovery around the gap opening price. It doesnt always work that way of course and a gap doesnt need to get filled just because it is there.
