Indicator settings for Day trading 24 hour markets

    Here is the topic.

    I trade Futures and Futures Options. Since the Futures are basically 24 hours traded with more trading done during normal trading hours, I ended up filtering data for normal trading hours (as a day trading choice).

    However, I quickly did not see the correct momentum using my indicators in the morning when trading hours started.

    I went back to not filtering out normal trading hours and my indicators give me a more accurate reading for the morning hours.

    What is your opinion?
  2. Put your money on #5 at the track. You'll have better odds.

    I normally do trades that last from 1 to several months.

    Recently, I have been testing a short term strategy.

    I realize the odds are better with longer term systems, however, I wanted feedback on the topic that I mentioned.

    Thank you for your feedback.
