    is there such a thing as a continuation doji? or a measured move doji?

  4. IMV, the only candlestick patters of worth are those at the end of big/range moves, indicating "reversal possible".... Morning Star, Evening Star, Shooting Star, Hanging Man, Hammer, Engulfing, Dark Cloud Cover.... and maybe Harami.

    There are 4 kinds of gaps...


    Initially you have to guess as to which one it is... but at least it's limited to these alternatives.

    i used to trade gap ups all the time on earnings.
    however, i would find myself chasing at the open and would sometime get destroyed on the pull back. what i do now is wait about 10-20 minutes, sometimes a little longer before i jump in on a pull back. playing gaps are tough but can be quite rewarding. it takes discipline and caution.
