  1. does anyone only trade the YM,ES in the afternoon? From 3-4:00Pm New York time...or most of the time during this time frame?..seems there are some real moves in this time period...comments?
  2. occasionally, like going into yesterdays close 4pm....i will play the market to gap the the following day.........not sure if that is what you meant...
  3. I trade YM all the time, including that period. Comments ... hmmm ... it often seems like you see the high or low of the day, on a non-trending day, around 1-2 PM EST. So, if it's a non-trending day, there's money to be made on the reversal. The probabilities then are at their highest in the day, IMO. And depending on what kind of day it is, you can get some rapid movement into the close.
