  4. Yeah. For 2 hours. 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm local time (true for Hong Kong, not sure if same for Tokyo and Shanghai).

    Flat line for 2 hours. Screw up your 1-minute chart and moving averages huh! "Intraday gap"... LOL.

    For Hong Kong... 4 hour trading each day. Guess pre and post market extended hours are out of the question huh?....

  6. Exactly. And nobody believes PRC econ stats anyway ...

    It's just crazy volatility. Thank God! Hahaha ...
  7. Futures seem to be doing just fine now.
