GEMINI:BATUSD   Basic Attention Token / Dollar
Hey Im new here...

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?


Your looking at 15 min chart on gemini exchange. Theres no liquidity. Zoom out to a higher time frame and u wont have that issue

Hey buddy, I've seen ur question on public chat. hope the explanation would be helpful:
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.

I hope that you get it in a simple way. please support us if you found it useful.
You are using the range try using 1month or lower time frames to really get a better view of price action.. I prefer the day and one hour charts. Check out my charts from today on GBPUSD. The price broke the trend line and became a perfect setup for a buy. Also I highly suggest watching JAY WAYNE ON YOUTUBE.. he is very humble and within two months I have learned so much. I am a newbie as well but Jay has really changed my views on the charts
@HeyWhit, thank you for the advice.
Watch in youtube the basic of candlesticks for you to understand more.
