How to Trade Gaps

On this week’s edition of Stock Talk with Joe Rabil, Joe shows the key criteria to determine if a gap is a buyable or sellable event. The concepts of contraction and expansion are important to recognize when a gap occurs. Joe discusses the location and the trend in the relation to the gap to determine whether to take action. He also explains how to use the higher time frame support to aid in these decisions. Joe then goes through the stock requests for the week, including HON, ABNB and more.
