Continuation Gaps

Once a rally or a decline is underway, there may be a pullback, or a retracement while investors "reposition" themselves before continuing on with the previously established trend. If there is very strong investor opinion there may not be a period where the market or stock takes the time to gradually reclaim its trend, but rather makes a jump, or gaps to the position where investors feel the stock or market should be trading.
