Thank you for your replies so far!

I understand that FDAX has its RTH trading hours from 07:50am to 10:00pm CET, but is it really during all this RTH that the institutional buyers are buying with the highest volume, or should I look at a different time intervall for a more real RTH trading range?

The volumes of the DAX* during cash hours are mostly strong during opening until 13:30 CET. When US opens at 14:30 CET
some shaky moments with higher volumes are possible but not sure and not often: see known News from the calendar.
In fact - the best market volumes are at Initial Balance (30min) from 9:00 to 9:30 and then maybe a change of
direction around 10:30.
Just some points out of experience.


* means of course the Dax Future(s) as well
