Gap Up

A Gap Up is when a stock opens at a higher level than the previous day's high.

For example, if the previous day's high was 500, and the stock opened at 505, there would have been a 5 point gap up.
This is considered a bullish signal. This is also known as a Full Gap Up (as opposed to a Partial Gap Up which is when the stock just opens above the previous day's close).

Gaps are areas on a share price chart where the price of a stock moves sharply up or down, with little or no trading in between.

Opening gaps can be caused by news releases (for example, if a company's earnings are much higher than expected) or events that happen while the market is closed, or technical factors (e.g. traders placing their orders, before the market opens).
