GAP is the price of vacancies at the beginning of the week / at the time of market opening because brokers do not record price movements on holidays.

in fact, if the market never goes off forever there won't be any, it's just that the broker is on a Saturday Sunday holiday and sometimes on that holiday there are still transactions so that prices change and traders don't know.

other than because of the closing of the market on weekends, do not forget the gap could arise because of a strong push from market sentiment or due to the results of fundamental data that is far from forecast.

Because the gap is a sharp price difference between the opening price of a bar candle and the closing price of the previous candle, it can occur at all time frames including H4.

Gap that often occurs at the beginning of this week makes many traders avoid holding positions, or leave trades open during the weekend when the market closes
