Now if you’ve been reading my public analysis you know about my Sell Zone, you also know about the weakness in charts beneath.
I’ll share another oldie, but goodie. Gaps.

My apparently variant perspective: Many of these gaps, if not all, will eventually fill. And, as we saw in February 2018, gap fills can occur with a vengeance with little warning. Hence my view: This rally is fragile, handle with care.
