What does fill the gap mean?
Simply so, why do gaps have to be filled?
Exhaustion gaps are typically the most likely to be filled because they signal the end of a price trend, while continuation and breakaway gaps are significantly less likely to be filled since they are used to confirm the direction of the current trend.
Beside above, do all gaps get filled? Common Gaps These gaps are common (get it?) and usually get filled fairly quickly. “Getting filled” means that the price action at a later time (a few days to a few weeks) usually retraces at the least to the last day before the gap. This is also known as closing the gap.
Similarly one may ask, what does a gap up indicate?
A Gap Up is when a stock opens at a higher level than the previous day's high. Gaps are areas on a share price chart where the price of a stock moves sharply up or down, with little or no trading in between.
