For some fifteen years I traded both night and days while sleeping during the late afternoon till 23:30, I got so tired of it, I hired people to stay up evenings/nights so I didn't have to. If messes up everything, one's disposition, relationships, outlook on life, but it is generally the best trading around, at least for me. You can't really do volume in currency futures so you have to go to Forex for size, but the German markets can handle just about anything. Crude Oil offers nice trends but you have to be able to accept what you can get but it is not as jagged as it is in Day session. I don't trade the U.S. Indexes at all during the night session, moves are very short for me and risk is often all over the place cause it doesn't take much to hit stops cause of the lite volume.
Just have to be very aware of the reports that come out at night, and be out of the market before they come out, the slippage can be staggering.
