You can open during Globex. You just have to have closed at the electronic close of the instrument, so you can't hold multiple "days," defining days as ending at the electronic close.

When I wrote "day trades only," that's what I meant to convey, not that you had to use pit or "regular trading" hours.

Here's the official statement from the website:

When the new "day" has begun -- that is, when it re-opens -- as defined by the CME, you can trade it again. "Days" aren't really days any more. You can trade it all night if you want to.

Bob.

How about $1000 restriction? Will that be based on trading hours or new day? For example if we loose $500 in regular hours and the lost another $600 after reopen of trading but before 12 midnight are we technically out of 50k combine?
