Gap trading strategy for regular income from stock market. This video is dedicated to Scott Andrews, “The Gap Guy”.

Scott has made a lot of research on trading gaps in the US markets and he traded the S&P 500 index successfully there. I have also done some research in gap trading in India and found that gap trading strategy can be equally profitable in the Indian markets and you can successfully trade the Nifty, Bank Nifty as well as the liquid stocks of Indian exchanges. You can even trade liquid commodities with the same logic.

The preferred way of analyzing gap size is to use the 5 Day Average True Range (ATR). Gap sizes equals to or below 20% of 5 Day ATR is filled very fast and the win rate drops off significantly when the opening gap size is beyond 40% of 5 Day ATR.

How To Trade Gaps?
The most simple gap trading strategy is find a stock or index that opened significantly gap up or gap down than the last close. In case of a gap up simply open a short order with a target of last day’s close. Similarly in case of a gap down simply open a buy order with a target of last day’s close. Use a stop loss of 20% – 50% of 5 Day ATR depending on your risk appetite. You can find stocks with more than 1% gap up or gap down in our NSE Stock Screener page in my site

Gap trades can be improved for a regular income from stock market if we understand the concent of gap zone. I have coded a special formula in Amibroker using the Gap Zone technique. I have named the trading system as GAPTS (Gap Accelerated Profit Trading System).

I will start distributing GAPTS on Amibroker shortly to my trading clients who are trading actively in my team. Remember to receive a copy you must have a trading account in my team.

Thanks a lot for watching my webinar on Gap Trading. I will come with more results on GAPTS on Amibroker.

Today’s gap up near resistance was beautiful. The reversal after the 10:00am #’s were even more predictable! I recorded and upload a great trade during the double bottom major trend reversal formation knowing we had just FILLED the GAP! All in on the Gap Indrajit!
