Who trades futures in the "wee" hours?

Because of my semi nocturnal work schedule, I am learning to trade (sim) on a session from 2:30am to 5am. I trade CL, GC, and 6J using auction theory hypotheses (similar to FT71) and price action set ups. I have heard that the overnight session is very much like the regular hours except that it moves slower. In my experience so far, this seems to be true for the most part. However, I get the feeling there are some tricks to the trade for this time of the morning.

Is there anyone on this forum (who maybe keeps a journal) who specializes in the overnight session?
Who has experience with this session and can tell me what they have learned?
