Gap Up

gapup.gifGap Up occurs when the value increases sharply and the lowest value for a days trading is higher than the high for the previous day.

i.e. The Low of today is $5.22 and the high for the previous day is $5.20 indicating a sharp rise.

It can indicate a sharp increase in the value of a security, functionally it is the exact opposite to Gap Down.
