How good is volume, volatility at your trading time.
I trade 9-12 and 2-4 during the daylight hours!
I trade depending on what the market is doing... I follow the market front of the computer all day...
I see that two people said so far that they trade outside of normal hours. How do you guys do this? It would seem difficult to pull off from a technical trading, and liquidity standpoint, are you just trading the news or what, I must be missing something?
I would love to be able to go home at night and trade the e-mini so I'm open to suggestions here.
The poll choices look like the shifts at McDonalds - they're not at all in correlation to actual market volume periods.
I trade 830-1130 and 130-415 on economic data news days and 940-1130 and 130-415pm otherwise
I know that the my poll hours are not the same as stock trading sessions, but these are the hours I am either at home or at work, or asleep, so I was most interested in hours between 6pm-12pm, but also want to know how is trading during other hours.
These are my trades today from 9:45 to 3:00. All makret orders:
(Trade_Date) - (BUY or SELL) - Qty - Product - Price
12/05/02 - BUY - 3 - DECO2 E MINI S&P - 91000
12/05/02 - SELL - 3 - DECO2 E MINI S&P - 91150

I am curious as to where I stand relative to other traders. Please share.
yeah if you can walk away with a full point using mkt orders in aht, you are doing fantastic.
Thanks for the update. So I guess there were 6 bids at 907.50 when you went short? What's the average max number you think you can move at the screen price using mkt orders?
the market was breaking upwards when i placed 6 sells.
estrader - Can you please post some details on your trading methodology? It seems like you do very well, so I'm curious to know about your style and strategy.
