Evening trading

  1. Hello

    I'm looking for markets to trade after 7pm EST, and nothing past 12am) It can be stocks, commodity or index futures, I have an IB account and are located in Canada. The only thing is I only trade with a 60K account, so I would prefer something that isn't too large a contract as I'd like to use no more than 2-3X leverage.

    Thanks in advance
  2. Currency futures could be an option as well (not sure of the volumes or which pairs). I'd prefer no spot currencies though. Thank you
  3. Your best bet is KOPSI 200 futures. It is South Korea equivalent of S&P futures. The contract is very liquid, has high tick value and decent moves. It currently opens at 8PM est and can be traded at IB.

    Most currencies tend not to move too much in EST evening hours.

    Other contracts such as Nikkei 225 on SGX, Australia ASX 200 or HK hand seng are either too thin or do not move.

    AUDUSD and NZDUSD and USDJPY - Asian markets open around 8-830 EST and these currency pairs have decent moves.
  5. Thanks guys! I'll watch these tonight.
