how to deal with gap

Discussion in 'Technical Analysis' started by robinxing, May 16, 2007.

  1. I think gap has great impact on the system

    wether overnight system or intraday system

    for example the original trend is down

    but next day it gaps up

    the price movement deviates from original trend

    but after the gap up , the price drops down to a specific price

    then the system short 1 contract

    but at that moment,the price stops dropping

    it moves up........................

    the market sideways

    under such situation,it is hard for trend following system

    I wanna find some ways to deduce the impact of gap on the system

    Is there any articles about the topic?

    thank you
