Bullish Fair Value Gap EXPLAINED – Smart Money Concepts
A Bullish Fair Value Gap is a 3 candle structure with an up impulse candle (2nd) that indicates and creates an
imbalance or an inefficiency in the market.
WHAT DO THE IMBALANCES TELL US?
These imbalances tell us that the buying and selling is not equal. Now the market needs to rebalance (move at least to 50% of the fair value gap to fill) to make up for the imbalance and rebalance. For this to happen we need to see orders filled in the prices of the candle with the FVG.
HOW A BULLISH FAIR VALUE GAP IS CONSTRUCTED:
Draw a horizontal line from the top of the wick.
Draw a horizontal line from the bottom of the wick
Draw a BOX between the above and below and pull it over to see the FVG range.
BETWEEN CANDLE 1 and CANDLE 3:
Do NOT show common prices. They do NOT touch where the upper & the lower wicks do NOT overlap.
With a Bullish FVG we can expect the market price to move DOWN.
I believe a Bullish FVG needs to close at least 50%.
So you can drag a Gann Box or a Fib retracement (take out all the other levels except 50%).
Wait for the price to close and fill the prices and boom – Your Bullish Fair Value Gap has been filled.
