In linguistics, gapping is a type of ellipsis that occurs in the non-initial conjuncts of coordinate structures. Gapping usually elides minimally a finite verb and further any non-finite verbs that are present. This material is “gapped” from the non-initial conjuncts of a coordinate structure. Gapping exists in many languages, but by no means in all of them, and gapping has been studied extensively and is therefore one of the more understood ellipsis mechanisms. Stripping is viewed as a particular manifestation of the gapping mechanism where just one remnant appears in the gapped/stripped conjunct.
What is ‘Gapping’
In general, a trading strategy in which the participant borrows short and lends long. This strategy gives the lender an overall better interest rate as short rates are generally lower than long rates. Also in technical analysis, gapping can refer to the use of a gap strategy which looks at stocks that display price gaps from previous closes.
To employ a gap strategy an investor can scan the morning prices for a gap and watch to see what the stock does in the first couple hours of the trading day. In general, if the price goes up, it signals a buy, and if it goes down, a short. There are several variations of the gap strategy.
