Does anyone trade weekend gaps? They fill over and over again, just wondering if any traders take advantage of this. If so, how?

See attached screenshots...

This seems very interesting. How do you determine stop loss?

as usual - the quantity of funds that I am ok to lose in that trade. 1%, 2% 10%....it depends on many factors. Trend. Sentiment. Market conditions. And also the size of the gap....very important factor....

There is nothing like weekend gap.
Forex is being traded even during weekends.
It it just not allowed nor visible for you.
So you can see the same gap if you for example hide Wednesday and Tuesday on your platform.

Can you please explain? I have never seen Forex price at the weekend. If it does take place the trading volumes must be tiny and therefore it is as good as market being closed. I still think there is importance between the close on Friday and the open on Monday

So called gap is result of trading DURING WEEKEND. You are as retail trader not part of that.
So you see friday close and monday open as a gap, while there are big players trading during weekend.
