You might want to check what Fat Tails suggests for the opening range using the ACD method. It's interesting but i don't really understand why the length of the opening range is different for each instrument maybe some ACD expert can shed some light on this:

Different markets have different trading hours and different "activity periods" (i.e., what hours on Globex they are most active). For instance I trade mainly soybeans (ZS) and I use an IB of 15 minutes. This seems to work best although it may be changing because the CBOT changed the pit hours of of the grain complex a couple months ago. I'm going to start trading the euro so wanted to get some opinions.

For me it comes down to what period of time works best to give one an understanding of what's going on as the market opens up and settles the initial orders that have come into the market.
