New emini trading hours

  1. I am starting a thread on this since there was little reaction to my last post on the subject . I cannot believe I would be the only one bothered with those new hours. I am talking about the daily shut down between 5:30-6:00pm. This new schedule is absurd or else they (the CME) had a good reason to choose to move the maintenance shutdown from midnight to 5:30pm.

    How can we complain to these CME aholes?!@!:mad:

    I'm guessing but it could be related to most major world markets are closed during that time frame.

  5. Most futures markets may be closed but the market for the underlying US stocks is not closed. As a matter of fact this is around the time conference calls start. The Q's trade but not the emini Nasdaq 100!
