fading the gap FIO-wiki

Today I posted about the gap trade in futures
https://futures.io/trading-journals/41489-red-rooster-7.html#post627091

After posting there are wiki highlights for fading the gap
https://futures.io/wiki/trading-wiki/Fading-the-Gap

In the fade the gap it speaks about it not being as relevant for futures - which is correct if one talks about a true gap and is not correct if one speaks of the o/n gap. Should one add to the existing wiki (which could be confusing for new traders) or create a separate wiki for fading the o/n gap which is widely used in futures?

gaps


there are mainly 2 kinds a inside range gap and a out side range gap. what ever the closing price or pit settlement is . if the market opens below or above that price is a gaped that much. the inside range gap will fill 80% the same day. the out side will get a 60% part fill the same day. the larger the gap the less chance it will fill . if price trades above or below that gap for 2 or 3 trading days the retest of the gap will hold a high % of the time. how to trade that is were the problem comes. to trade the gap fill you almost need to be able to I.D. a opening drive , opening test drive, open action, and open rejection in real time. that is not so easy. as an example if you have a open action that means the market is grinding very slow filing the gap. you have to I.D. that in real time and not trade it. you also have to I.D. when the tempo changes from slow to fast the other way. that is the trade you want to take. hope it helps

wrong question

Thanks.

However, the question is:

should another page be posted in wiki
or
should the exiting page be added to?

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
