A brief refresher on fair value gaps

  • Fair Value Gaps (FVG) are the places where you observe price imbalances in one part of the market.
  • Fair Value Gaps are called “price imbalance” or “market inefficiency’
  • Price moves only to search for liquidity. The market is constantly looking to match orders (buys and sells) in a balanced manner to ensure market efficiency (and because’smart money’ have so much money to invest, they must place orders at every pip.)


Market Efficiency – A fair proportion of sellers and buyers in both markets

Forex FVG Indicator

If you observe a lot of sellers and buyers there will be a lot of overlap between candles (bodies or wicks) as shown in the picture above. This is called’market efficiency’.

Fair Value Gaps (FVG) occur when price is able to move rapidly from an order block.

  • They are a sign that’smart money’ is present in the market


What is the term “fair value gap”? Fair Value Gap?

If you have an inefficiency of the market (a green candle without an red candle in opposition or the reverse) as well as the candles that are on either side (including their wicks) don’t close all the gaps:

Eventually, the market makers will eventually want for them to return to the market spaces and fill these gaps.

Note: This doesn’t always happen instantly. On the longer time frames (Daily+) this could take weeks, days or even years! (but in the scalping and intraday timeframes, it’s typically done much faster).


Similar rules are applicable to FVG’s they do with order block (they should be held at the 50 percent level). Price should react from open until the 50 percent FVG level:

If price fills the whole fair value gap that usually means it was aiming for the order block above/below the FVG:
