  1. Hi all,

    Question for you, when do stocks trend at their most powerful
    during the day - at the open? - from 10:30 to 12? or near the close?

    or does it depend ?


    Thanks in advance

    They trend most of the times from 9:40 to 11:00
     
  3. The first AND last hour of the session. That's when the most money tends to come in the market.

    one thing i've noticed is that block-trades will typically get executed intraday, between 11 and 2:30 est. watch the 1-minute chart of the large-cap that you're interested in and watch for significant minute-over-minute moves.

    i saw kerkorian buying back his shares 2 days before the press release - he screwed my 3-day gm short. (paybacks a bitch, eh kirk?? :))

    another thing i've learned - most stocks always retrench, if you have the paitence.....

    First AND last hour are keys, as are open & close price.

    Watching, investing/trading a few stocks can help;
    your written records can help with trends anytime also.
    :cool:
     
  7. Generally speaking of course, but I think the smart traders and the professional traders do their business later in the day towards closing. I believe that knee jerk traders and amatuers are in or out at the opening.
