    Just for discussion, anyone has any experience trading stocks that has a lot of gaps? Do these stocks behave differently from the normal ones?

    Here is a gappy cup with handle:

  2. GLD is another stock that gaps alot, i never traded it though.

    gld gaps because it is based upon the price of gold which trades 24 hours/day while US exchanges trade limited hrs.
  4. I choose not to short term position trade stocks (trade duration about 3 days to 30 days) showing a history of large opening price gaps. I recall losing money when stopping losses on opening price gaps.
