I've seen the webinars done by "Master The Gap"; however, there are details in this method and how other traders trade gaps that are not clear to me. I'm sure that there are many methods to trade gaps.
What is the best instrument to trade gaps - stocks, futures, indicies, ETFs, etc?
How do "Gap Traders" do their pre-market planning in evaluating the probable direction of prices and estimating how far prices will go?
Are high volatility stocks best suited for trading their gap moves?
Are high volatility stocks affected by the market indicators like the S&P 500 or the NASDAQ 500?
If you are a "Gap Trader", please share your method.

I have found it hard to find research on GAP TRADING but I would find it very interesting if some one could develop a code / program and back test a few Gap trading methods for profitability / practical applications.
What I have found:
1. There are 5 pages of explanation of Gaps in Martin Pring"s book.. Introduction to Technical Analysis.
2. Check out...StockCharts.com » ChartSchool » Trading Strategies » Gap Trading Strategies, there is a nice explanation of Gap trading methods.
3. The Encyclopedia of Technical Market Indicators by Robert Colby, CMT only has a one sentence brief expiation of a chart gaps on page 113 that is not of much use.
Summery: In Prings book "I do not mean to imply that all gaps are filled--Indeed, they are not--but most are". from page 128.
That is all got for now.
