Thanks: 13 given, 22 received

Routinely, my most profitable trades have been in foreign currency futures from 9 PM to 4 AM EST. The past few weeks I have been quite successful in 6A and 6C. The difference is I am swing trading based on price action, often intraday. It might not be volatile enough to have consistent successful scalp trades, but I know pretty much nothing about it.

All in all, yes you can trade in those hours. Honestly, I'm looking at charts 24/7 and seeing if patterns complete, which they do at all hours of the day. Best of luck!
