Question for experienced futures traders

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by Optionpro007, Jul 17, 2005.

  1. Hi:

    My question is in regards to the odds when a market gaps at the open, outside of one's profit or loss targets.

    I would imagine that chances of this happening would be 50/50.
    Once against and once in your favor.

    Is this correct ? Or the odds higher on one side ?

    Thanks !
  2. If you are talking about index futures, you have near 24 hour markets to avoid that scenario. Your biggest risk would be accidentally putting on a position ahead of a pre-market report that you had not been aware of. Otherwise, the volatility is seriously muted these days.

    Thank you for your reply. I should have made my inquiry much more detailed.

    I will start a new thread later today since the question I have relates to futures as a whole, not only index futures.

    Thanks anyway !
