Are weekly forex gaps going to be new trend?

Forex gaps used to be rare. Seeing them at the open of a week two weeks in a row is amazing. Last week, GBP crosses gapped down following ‘Yes’ lead in Scots poll.

Are high impact news catching markets unprepared these days or are markets becoming complacent?

    With gaps becoming more common, can we capitalize on future gap close as part of traps and continue to play out WRMB /1234 setups?

      I am going to take a look at last week’s gaps in the GBP crosses as well as the gaps in majors a few weeks back. Will write about what I think once I am done.
