Good Friday Trading

Discussion in 'Trading' started by Businessman, Apr 4, 2007.

  1. Apparently the NFP number are coming out on Friday. Which I found a bit surprising..

    The equity markets are closed but
    I think Globex FX will close about 3 hours after NFP comes out.

    Will there be enough liquidity in the FX markets to make it worth trading the numbers?

    Did anyone trade on Good Friday last year?
  2. According to their web site, CME Equity Indexes will be open until 8:15AM Central Time. Can someone confirm that we'll be able to trade ES for around 45 minutes after the NFP numbers are released?

    Didnt think they would release the number like that, especially on a day the markets are closed. Will be tough to hold positions ahead of a 3 day weekend, especially with the job # due out.

    Yes, 45 minutes>>>>>>>>>Why bother?
  5. Because there can be some serious whipsawing after an NFP release. January's saw the ES go up 5 in less than 30 seconds, then back down to unchanged in the next minute.
  6. who's long the indexes here?

    i am holding since ystdy for a .4/.5% gains. [er2]
