Asian Session Futures Trading

Hi,

Is there anybody successfully trading futures during the Asian session (between 5PM and 10PM EST Mon-Fri)? if so, what futures contracts are best traded during that time and what strategies and/or timeframes?

Thank you.

I would look at Asian currencies 6A, 6J, etc. I would also look to trade Asian news release events.

I also noticed that 6E has some small, consistent trends during this time. For example, I noticed that there were some news that came out at 19:30 in Australia and 6A went down 30 ticks within 1 minute of the news.

Realistically, how would I have been able to capture any of this move? Would a bracket order above (stop buy order 1 tick above) and below (stop sell order 1 tick below) the recent trading range prior to the news have worked? Wouldn't the order fill incur a very significant slippage? I attached a file of the 1 min 6A chart around today's news.

Thank you.

Do you like fast thin markets or slow lethargic thick markets?

I guess I like the slower, gradual moves but not super fast like crude oil during the European session. The reason I'm asking about the Asian session is that 5-10 pm EST would be the only time I'd have access to trade and I know that's the absolute slowest time to trade. Usually during this time there are a lot of pullbacks after moves that occurred earlier in the day and the market has more of a tendency to rest during this time. What I'm looking for is something that will have some consistent, small trends during this time of the day.

I trade HSI, taking 2 to 5 trades a day. HHI is similar and both have minis.

KOSPI, STW, Nikkei are also available depending on you preferences re movement and liquidity. Also Nifty and some others.

Fx is reactive in many pairs so you might want to use longer time frames. Everything can be traded through IB.

Well said! I didn't know the HHI had a mini, lol!
