  1. I use market profile for some of my trading especially the nq and es and I was wondering what would be the appropriate trading hours to look at for the 10y and 30y?

    as an example I know the es is a 24hr market as well as the 10y and 30y but I only look at the market profile from 930-4pm where the most volume is for the es. I am wondering what hours are the main hours for the 10y and 30y, to me it seems like 8am-230pm but sometimes large volume comes in until 4pm.
  2. Use the hours of the trading pit for consistency. :cool:
  3. 7:20am to 2pm is what I see for the pit for bonds
  4. which time zone?
  5. As far as I know, it's 7:20 AM - 2PM Chicago, or 1:20PM - 8PM GMT, for the pit. Electronic is, basically, 24hrs (5:30PM - 4PM Chicago).
  6. I'm on eastern time and you are right looks like 820-2 for eastern time.
  7. i mean 8:20-3pm
