very good observation...you have learned something very important

this is a habit of the market...because of this, many people can take advatage of this movement

Consider this...news that comes out while the market is not open...because of this and other factors gaps in stocks may occur...many newbies get burned because of this

in fact I think one of SandyMack's personal rules is not to trade before that time during the day...let the dumb and institutional money and MM rip offs occur then *Choose* your entry...don't be forced into it (herd mentality)

I've used this in DT to short and buy gaps that occur - yes this is risky but sometimes the hyper dumb money will be very kind in premarket and early hours trading
