“If I could only trade one strategy, it would be early morning gaps”

Kevin Haggerty – Former Head of Trading Fidelity Capital Markets

For three decades, gap trading has been one of the most popular and successful strategies for traders who have identified when and how to trade stock gaps. The problem is that there are literally thousands of gaps every year. So how does the average trader know which ones to trade, where to enter them and where to properly exit the positions?

Are you currently trading stock gaps on a regular basis? If your answer is no, I highly recommend reading our new Special Gap Trading set of guidebooks from the Connors Research Trading Strategy Series. Click here to learn more.
