3070 support and 3120 resistance, db?
Yes there are times during the day I can observe and I have Wednesdays off every week to observe also.
And what are those times?
8:30-9am cst and 11:30 till 12m. plus I can replay the markets on my platform if I need to.
This won't work. The market can be unbelievably accommodating, but it's not likely to be accommodating enough to provide you with excellent trading opportunities in such tiny windows.
Therefore, all your research and testing will have to be done in replay. This should be done in 1x at the beginning so that you don't obtain an unrealistic view of time. This doesn't mean you have to go through an entire day in 1x, but you should at least replay two to three hours.
Yes, this will take time. But the point of it is to prepare you for real-time observation and, eventually, trading. If you breeze through it, there will be no benefit.
Anything to be gained by watching the over night action?
Better use of time would be to do playbacks of reg. hours.
If you are going to trade overnight then watch overnight.
If you are going to trade reg. hours then watch reg. hours.
Doesn't look like DB wants to respond.
Sorry for butting in Slugar !. Good Luck to you
