Why am I seeing such tiny slivers of candles? Why would their be such a difference in price in candles that come one after the other?
what you see is named GAPs. Gaps occur because of underlying fundamental or technical factors. For example, if a company's earnings are much higher than expected, the company's stock may gap up the next day. This means the stock price opened higher than it closed the day before, thereby leaving a gap. In the forex market, it is not uncommon for a report to generate so much buzz that it widens the bid and ask spread to a point where a significant gap can be seen. Similarly, a stock breaking a new high in the current session may open higher in the next session, thus gapping up for technical reasons.
Gaps are spaces on a chart that emerge when the price of the financial instrument significantly changes with little or no trading in-between.
Gaps occur unexpectedly as the perceived value of the investment changes, due to underlying fundamental or technical factors.
Gaps are classified as breakaway, exhaustion, common, or continuation, based on when they occur in a price pattern and what they signal.
