This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Not to sound coy but it really shouldn't make a difference...

I'm really not even sure what you are worried about right now. A Limit gap on ES would be a once, or maybe twice, in a lifetime move. If you don't know how to react to that scenario than you shouldn't be trading ES. For the most part the ES only has gaps on the weekend. Yes it gapped on Friday because a piece of news came out in between the close and the open @4:15. Even then, going from memory, there was only like a ~8pt gap. Whats the issue here? If you can't handle risk or uncertainty than you should not trade.
