I'm not sure if I want to use 24hr data or regular trading hours (9:00 - 2:30 EST) data for my swing trading. I've tried both and I see advantages and disadvantages of using both. Depending on which I use the candlesticks are different and also divergences are different, often a sine in one chart won't appear in the other and vice versa. For the most part I've used RTH data but it seems that oil is traded internationally and does move outside of RTH. I'm curious what the majority of traders use.
