Like the nature, markets don't like the void, and this is something we can take advantage of by trading gaps on some markets.
This technique is well known, so I wanted to write a tiny script based on this strategy to get a bit more comfortable with it.
IMPORTANT: Default parameters wont give you good trades on every markets, you need to modify these parameters...

A "Gap down Reversal" is when the current days candle, opens, below the prior days close, and "finishes up" on the day with the close greater than the open. This type of price action can provide traders with favorable entry points to trade long, as anyone who was short the prior day, can get squeezed or panic out of the trade as they would see profits erode...
This is a fully customizable gap finder. You can change the color of just about anything, on top of hiding filled/old gaps. This is so you can spot those tiny gaps on something such as futures. Be sure to play around with the settings.

Gaps are market prices structures that appear frequently in the stock market, and can be detected when the opening price is different from the previous closing price, this is why gaps are also called "opening price jumps".

Only for Bitcoin!
This indicator locates weekly gaps created by the CME Futures market for Bitcoin.
As you can see, Bitcoin tends to close the weekly gaps created in the futures market so I thought this could be a very useful tool.
Instead of having to look between multiple charts, this simply overlays the past weeks open and close should a gap appear.
This tool highlights where gaps happens and outlines in the chart where the gap zones are. If there is a gap up there is a green line, a gap down it is red. The gap zone is highlighted in blue. You can choose the size of your gap with the input menu to the desired size. Feel free to ask comment below. Made for the Gold Minds group
