Overview
Fair Value Gaps are price jumps caused by the imbalance buying and selling pressures in trading and are most commonly used amongst price action traders.

Fair Value Gaps are formed via a three-candle sequence in which a large candle’s neighbouring candles’ upper and lower wicks do not fully overlap the large candle.

The Fair Value Gaps Indicator also supports Multi Time Frame Plotting, allowing you to plot the Fair Value Gaps from higher time frames onto lower time frame charts.

The Fair Value Gaps Indicator is a powerful trading toolkit that provides users with more information than they would typically have available to them by allowing them to configure several charts worth of information onto one single chart.


USAGE

The script automatically identifies imbalances between buying and selling pressure in the market in real time, offering traders valuable insight into current market sentiment. These gaps are considered to be levels where the supply and demand of a commodity are imbalanced, and the price tends to return to fill these gaps (But are not guaranteed to).

The Fair Value Gaps Indicator also allows gaps from higher time frames to be drawn on lower time frame charts, providing traders with more information than they would typically have access to to further simplify the decision making process.
