    Any idea what is the approx good time range to trade ES during
    7pm-7am EST.
    Does it move much during asian market hours or european
    market hours.

    Thanks for any reply.
  2. It tends to start moving in the 1am to 3am range. When it gets going it seems to trend for a long time. Trend following strategies seem to work better during these light volume hours.

    Thanks for the replies.
  5. 3 am fade is $
  6. If you trade the ES from 3:00 AM to 9:00 AM EST (9:00 AM to 3:00 PM Central European Time) you have to watch the DAX and the FTSE and be aware of the time of scheduled European economic reports.

  9. Liquid enough for the retail trader.
