I trade CL regular hours so used to it's speed etc.... Question is do you find those large jumps in bid offer to be larger in the 6:00 to 8:30 time frame?
"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
The type of jumps I'm talking about are due to unexpected world events, so they can happen at any time. Sometimes they also can be the result of economic reports that are released at predefined times and days.
I guess a clarification on the magntitude of the jump is in order. I'm talking about things that are >100 ticks ($1/barrel). If you've been trading CL for over a year, then you know what I'm talking about, because there have been two "limit-move" type events that have occured in the past year. In one instance, the price dropped $4 (400 ticks) in a couple minutes, and in the other, there was almost a limit move ($10) in a day.
