Product description

From the Back Cover

“Finally! We now have a book that deals exclusively with price gaps. Read how to identify them, trade them, and measure their returns. The authors challenge conventional wisdom regarding the usefulness of gaps on heavy or light volume. Find out if days that contain a high number of gapping stocks will offer clues to the market’s overall direction. I thank Julie and Richard for addressing my forty-five-year-old curiosity: What does it mean when prices gap above or below moving averages?”

Ralph J. Acampora, CMT, Director, Technical Analysis, Altaira Limited

 

“Technical and quantitative market analysts who use or are considering using price gaps either in discretionary or systematic trading strategies will want to study, not just read, Technical Analysis of Gaps: Identifying Profitable Gaps for Tradingby professors Julie Dahlquist and Richard Bauer. It adds momentum to the trend of rigorous evidence-based literature. Traders will learn which gaps contain the best profit potential and which contain none. It made me realize how little I knew about this important area of technical analysis.”

David Aronson, CMT, President, Hood River Research, and author of Evidence-Based Technical Analysis

 

Technical Analysis of Gapssummarizes the authors’ comprehensive research on stock price gaps. In it, they describe surprising results in gap behavior that dispel many Wall Street myths. They show practical methods for taking advantage of gaps and profiting from their appearance. This book is a classic. In my opinion, it is the final, complete treatise on the subject of stock market gaps.”

Charles D. Kirkpatrick II, CMT, Kirkpatrick & Company, Inc., and coauthor of Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians

 

The First Complete, Research-Based Guide to Profitable Gap Trading

 

Gaps represent price jumps that could signal profitable technical trading opportunities. Until now, however, “folklore” about gap trading has been common, but tested research-based knowledge has been virtually nonexistent. In Technical Analysis of Gaps, renowned technical analysis researchers Julie Dahlquist and Richard Bauer change all that. Drawing on 17 years of comprehensive data, they show how to identify “strategic” gaps with high profit potential to trade more successfully.

 

Building on work that recently earned them the prestigious Charles H. Dow Award for creativity and innovation in technical analysis, Dahlquist and Bauer present specific techniques for analyzing gaps. They address issues such as gap size, volume, and previous price movement; illuminate key findings with easy-to-understand diagrams; and integrate their insights into practical, actionable trading strategies.

 

•  Visualize gaps with candlestick charts

   Uncover surprising gap patterns and trading Opportunities

 

•  Measure the profitability of gap-based trades

•  Understand subtle relationships between gaps and price movements

   Use both short-term information and longer-term moving averages

 

•  Put it all together in profitable trades

   Translate gap research into successful strategies
