find gaps, more than some %.
reduce the gap when price crosses into it.

this will plot 4 gaps at a time.
if a 5th gaps occurs, the 1st gap lines stop and the new gap lines starts.

gaps are determined when a price difference between 2 bars is more than some %.
..choose a minimum gap % , a % of the price.
..default is 1%

determine gap from previous bar price : close or high/low
determine gap from current bar price : high/low

can choose to reduce gaps, when price crosses into a gap.
if gaps are not reduced, lines will extend until another of the same gap seq number occurs (1,2,3,4)

find gaps, more than some %.
reduce the gap when price crosses into it.

this will plot 4 gaps at a time.
if a 5th gaps occurs, the 1st gap lines stop and the new gap lines starts.

gaps are determined when a price difference between 2 bars is more than some %.
..choose a minimum gap % , a % of the price.
..default is 1%

determine gap from previous bar price : close or high/low
determine gap from current bar price : high/low

can choose to reduce gaps, when price crosses into a gap.
if gaps are not reduced, lines will extend until another of the same gap seq number occurs (1,2,3,4)

hal_gaps
This is great!
 
find gaps, more than some %.
reduce the gap when price crosses into it.

this will plot 4 gaps at a time.
if a 5th gaps occurs, the 1st gap lines stop and the new gap lines starts.

gaps are determined when a price difference between 2 bars is more than some %.
..choose a minimum gap % , a % of the price.
..default is 1%

determine gap from previous bar price : close or high/low
determine gap from current bar price : high/low

can choose to reduce gaps, when price crosses into a gap.
if gaps are not reduced, lines will extend until another of the same gap seq number occurs (1,2,3,4)

What is DATABUG?
 
Halcyonguy, this is a great script and one I was looking for. Would you be able to modify by not having shading or bubbles, but rather just a green arrow below the bar that is gapping up? I'm also interested in identifying all the gaps up by X% looking back XX Daily bars whether there are 4 gaps or much more. Also, not interested in gap downs, just gap ups.
 
find gaps, more than some %.
reduce the gap when price crosses into it.

this will plot 4 gaps at a time.
if a 5th gaps occurs, the 1st gap lines stop and the new gap lines starts.

gaps are determined when a price difference between 2 bars is more than some %.
..choose a minimum gap % , a % of the price.
..default is 1%

determine gap from previous bar price : close or high/low
determine gap from current bar price : high/low

can choose to reduce gaps, when price crosses into a gap.
if gaps are not reduced, lines will extend until another of the same gap seq number occurs (1,2,3,4)

Any easy way to make this work on extended hours charts?
 
find gaps, more than some %.
reduce the gap when price crosses into it.

this will plot 4 gaps at a time.
if a 5th gaps occurs, the 1st gap lines stop and the new gap lines starts.

gaps are determined when a price difference between 2 bars is more than some %.
..choose a minimum gap % , a % of the price.
..default is 1%

determine gap from previous bar price : close or high/low
determine gap from current bar price : high/low

can choose to reduce gaps, when price crosses into a gap.
if gaps are not reduced, lines will extend until another of the same gap seq number occurs (1,2,3,4)

hal_gaps
can you make the previous gaps extend across the chart from a previous down trend to where it intersects and up trend then when it encounters the up trend have it fill it?
 
completely remove the lines and shading?
yes , it's possible.
would use something like this.
https://usethinkscript.com/threads/remove-horizontal-line-when-crossed-for-thinkorswim.9089/
Hey halcyonguy I’ve been looking for a gap script just like this where when price enters the gap the cloud closes. I’ve been needing a Slight variation of this script for three types of gaps that I work closely with. If you could make this it would be fantastic! Perhaps it does work like this and I'm doing something wrong. I'm looking at gaps between each bar or three bars. 5 minute time frame, on future RTH no Extended hours on.

1. First gap variation are open-close gaps

On bull bars: if the second bars open is greater than the first bars Close. And vice versa for bear bars which would be the second bars open is less than the first bars close.

2. Tail gaps: when there are three bars the first bars high must be less than the third bar is low and vice versa for bear bars the first bars low must be greater than the third bar is high

These tail gaps take priority if they do get filled I would like it to divert to the most common gap which is the last variation

3. Normal gaps: in between three bars the first bars close is less than the third bars open and vice versa for bear bars the first bars close is greater than the third bars open.

Attached below are pictures of these types of gaps

Just copy paste the logic and add one to the numbered variable. You can get about 30ish days before thinkorswim starts *****ing about being too long and complex.
 
thanks for this. This is META stock.

I have set MIN GAP PERCENT to %0.0 to see all gaps in daily chart. but however it does not extend the gap into the future (today) unless i set the MIN GAP PERCENT to about %5, which will also not show gaps that are less. Is there a way to be able to see all gaps to extend into the future until it gets filled regardless the percent?
@halcyonguy
 
@halcyonguy thank you, it works perfect.... i made a little modification to have 8 gaps instead of 4... but you did the hard work in this script, i just copy&paste some of your logic. would you mind if i share the modified script.

once again thank you
 
Hi @halcyonguy, thank you for this script. Is there anyway I can convert it into a scan. I am looking to search for a stock which is getting closer to the unfilled gap formed in last 6 months or so. Let's say when the stock is 1% above the old gap then the scanner starts showing the stock. For example Costco left a gap between 457 and 453 on 14th October 2022 and currently price is heading towards it ( right now 1.5% away from it). Is it something we can do it ?

Hi, is it possible for you to shares the 8 gaps scripts. Thanks
 
find gaps, more than some %.
reduce the gap when price crosses into it.

this will plot 4 gaps at a time.
if a 5th gaps occurs, the 1st gap lines stop and the new gap lines starts.

gaps are determined when a price difference between 2 bars is more than some %.
..choose a minimum gap % , a % of the price.
..default is 1%

determine gap from previous bar price : close or high/low
determine gap from current bar price : high/low

can choose to reduce gaps, when price crosses into a gap.
if gaps are not reduced, lines will extend until another of the same gap seq number occurs (1,2,3,4)
