David Larry (2003) - Trading Explosion Breakaway Gaps

How to trade Breakaway Gaps?

First of all - identify a Breakaway Gap by looking at price breaking out with a gap wherein no shares exchanged hands. If you look at the attached chart of NELCO, you can see one on 12th August.

Nest step - wait for few sessions to look for "if the gap is filled or not" and simultaneously look for "PIVOT LOW".

What is pivot low? It is a candle that is surrounded by two candles on either side with higher lows. Ideally, this should be your stop-loss point. Candle 2 is PL
What about the entry? Entry is taken when the right side candle's high next to the Pivot point candle is knocked out. (buy when high of candle 3 is crossed with a stop loss below low of candle 2)

So the cryptocurrency industry has basically two products, one which is relatively benign and doesn't have product market fit, and one which is malignant and does. The industry has a weird superposition of understanding this fact and (strategically?) not understanding it.

The benign product is sovereign programmable money, which is historically a niche interest of folks with a relatively clustered set of beliefs about the state, the literary merit of Snow Crash, and the utility of gold to the modern economy.

This product has narrow appeal and, accordingly, is worth about as much as everything else on a 486 sitting in someone's basement is worth.

The other product is investment scams, which have approximately the best product market fit of anything produced by humans. In no age, in no country, in no city, at no level of sophistication do people consistently say "Actually I would prefer not to get money for nothing."

This product needs the exchanges like they need oxygen, because the value of it is directly tied to having payment rails to move real currency into the ecosystem and some jurisdictional and regulatory legerdemain to stay one step ahead of the banhammer.
