common gaps

Hello Friends,

I had earlier asked for some good resources to learn gaps. Many of you were very generous to help me on this. Thank you for it.

I have one more doubt with regard to COMMON GAPS. In your experience, in how many days are these common gaps filled?


For the benefit of many, can you elaborate what is a "common gap" ?
Hi Karnani Sir,

I received your email and thanks for the same.

Investopedia defines a "common gap" as-

A price gap found on a price chart for an asset. These gaps are brought about by normal market forces and, as the name implies, are very common. They are represented graphically by a non-linear jump or drop from one point on the chart to another point.

I was just wondering in how many days do these gaps fill. Thanks!
