Does anyone trade the ZN?

  1. During my search it said the word was too little so there were no results.

    Seems like it has different movement compared to the others.

    Why does volume pick up at 2am CST?

    Is anyone trading these short term?

    I checked my esignal chart. There was no volume spike at 2am cst.

    ZN not suitable for directional day trading.
    but I believe it is very popular with inter / intra market & calender spreaders

    The volume rises sharply at 2am CST with the open of the LSE (London Stock Exchange).

    I've only seen the oddball system for futures. Can you link to the debt system or is it the same momentum system?

    2am CST is when europe wakes up and starts trading, and then 8 hours later the US volume comes though. The 8 hours prior to that is the Asian session, where only small players exist with the occasional big player every couple of hours or so (which lasts less then a minute)
