What do you consider to be the true daily opening of the ES as opposed to the offically designated one as shown on CME Website. Is it more like the FOREX is where there really is'nt a opening/closing per say, but in periods through the day where where the market becomes significantly more active because of the actions of the international market. It seems to me that it seem to just follow the general time frame of the NY firms, 8 to 4. Sorry to ask such a newb questions, but I am trying to make my move into the ES and I still need dome more data. The only thing that was cool about Forex (and it sucks in general) was that there seemed to be activity at all hours. You just had to wait for whatever market to wake up.
