Don't "Mind the Gap." Capitalize on It.

Some traders know how to exploit price gaps. Join them.

You've seen them... those blank spaces on a chart where the price "jumped" from one point to the next.

Gaps. That's what traders call them. In the right hands, they offer a wealth of information.

In this free 4-minute clip from a recent Trader's Classroom video lesson, editor Jeffrey Kennedy explains that there are three types of gaps to really pay attention to:

  • Breakaway gap.
  • Acceleration gap.
  • Exhaustion gap.

The first one comes at the start of the trend. The second in the middle. Then the "Exhaustion" gap is the trend's last gasp.

Guess which gap you do not want to get caught trading?

Now watch Jeffrey show you how to tell them apart.
