I am currently doing testing of our system for gold futures (GC). I have noticed something strange and want to check if what I am seeing is correct:
The data I am using is the combined session which I assume is open outcry and electronic trading on CME. The trading times listed clearly shows that gold is practically trading almost 24 hours, with a mere 45 minutes break. Why on earth are there at times significant gaps during that period? I understand gaps over weekends, but what could possibly happen in the world that would result in such agressive gaps for only 45 minutes?
I do see and acknowledge that it has been happening less in the last 3 or 4 years, but this was very much the case in 2005 and 2006. Any reason for this?
Thanks for your thoughts!
Lower volume makes TA less helpful/relaible[its called noise];
as the saying goes in premarket/irregular hours ''which way do you want it to go''LOL Perhaps a graph /chart would help
