How to handle upward or downward “explosions” in market prices--and how to keep yourself from being fooled by them.

The extreme example is a market crash, but we can see this rapid shift after takeover announcements or surprising earnings news. This is sometimes exaggerated by news emerging between trading sessions. Technicians call these situations “gaps” because they leave a void on the charts.
