Informed vs. Uninformed.

  1. Hi, I was wondering if any of you knew where I can look up any stats on the general composition of trade(r)s in the afterhours market sessions. I would expect the trades to be relatively more informed as the liquidity motivated/naive traders who generally would not have a ready access to such trading and who would shun the higher spreads would self-select not to take part in such sessions. There is some empirical evidence that there's relatively more informed trading outside regular hours (larger trade size etc) there are also theoretical models that seem to indicate it.
    What do you think about it guys? Any place I can look it up?
    Thanks in advance.
  2. How come when I ask anything about afterhours I hardly get any feedback??? :D It's amazing that people keep complaining about how hard it became to daytrade after the decimalization etc etc. Well, the spreads are much wider in afterhours :) and I seem to make most of my money when the official markets are closed. I didn't think I was the only one out of the thousands of members here...
