opening gaps not filled anymore

  1. This would be the third day in a row that the opening gap wouldn't be filled in NQ.
  2. Might have something to do with 24 hr. trading in futures...?
  3. I take the open of NDX as a reference.

    The probabilities certainly aren't what they used to be. Perhaps a result of range contraction.

    today is a very good chance 80%
  7. 80% that it is filled or not filled???ß
  8. OK, market just gave the answer. Do you have a study about this stuff? How do you calculate that 80%?

    I use 70% of yesterday's volume,
    If market opens inside that range GAPs are filled with 80% chance and if market opens outside the range NO edge 50/50 chance.
    I did my own study based on 9 months of data and on low volume days unusual things happen more often (for instance last December) was very difficult to play gaps.
  10. When you say 70% of yesterday's volume, does that mean the price range that encompassed 70% of volume? Is this a Market Profile concept?
