When you see in 1st hour trend is not going as expected, you can go for ORB (Opening Range Breakout) strategy.

Thank you for your video. I don't totally agree with you in re: the difficulty in profiting from gaps - though I trade longer time periods, and am patient. With relevant indicators, I can and do profit most of the time with gaps. Of course, one must study the price action/tendencies... Still, I agree with almost everything you noted. (^^)

I know you cant determine 100% but how would you know if it will gap back up/down after consolidating the whole day? I have been watching a stock that has been doing morning gap down every morning for the past few months and is already passed its previous 52 week low. I am looking for a sign of trend change (20 & 50 EMA to start trending up) but every morning it gaps down then consolidates throughout the day. Great video by the way

Basically no strategy. Waiting 3 days for some gap to close. I'm not even come close to this strategy.

Excellent Stuff.

Good stuff once again Doc! I' ve noticed it does indeed take sometimes weeks to completely fill a "gap" whether up or down so thanks for the reminder that it very seldom works the next day overall like it use to. Traders beware!

Would you do a video on reversals?

What time frame is this?


Thanks for the video and information, but I cannot believe you have California time on your charts instead of NY time. I ALWAYS use NY time on my charts.
