How is this gap up possible?

Okay, so I am a bit of a beginner. This is a chart from this morning of the ES. I don't quite understand how you can have a 2 point gap up in the emini futures market. Can anyone explain this to me. Thank you

There is no such gap. Your time scale is not complete. For whatever reasons, you have skipped part of the overnight session.

You have to subtract 6 hours from the time in my chart to get EST.

You may try right clicking on the chart and reloading historical data. You didn't mention your data feed, but I have CQG and occasionally, for whatever reason, I'll lose some data and get those gaps.

Well that's embarrassing, and a little funny. I am going to go check that my feed is correct.
Thanks for the replies.

Perhaps you should check your session template whether or not it's set to 24/7.

Another thread relative to this subject was also posted this morning. Might be more of a Njatrader problem:

Yes, it refers to CQG datafeed.

I didn't experience any issues with Zen-Fire so far.
