or Brent.

Looking at ICE Europe ~ Three Month Euribor Futures & Three Month Sterling Futures both have decent volume but I know very little about them. (They are the original LIFFE contracts).

Well - looks like retail traders are about to get access to the Mini Nikkei 225 on Osaka (not CME) - which has lots of liquidity and volume and opens at 9am Osaka - which is about 8pm Eastern 5pm Pacific if I'm right.

Current contract is MJNKM16 on CQG.

I've just started watching it myself as it opens 7am my time (Bangkok).

It'll be interesting as it seems ideal for after work US and morning Aussie/Asia.

If you have any questions about the products or services provided, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

Not for me.

or 6am to 8am cst?

Anything European (though that 2-hour slot partly overlaps with lunchtime in Frankfurt and London), but certainly Euro futures and plenty of other things, too.

Light crude oil futures. Or centiliters, of course. Or centiliters (rather than barrels) of oil, maybe.

You could trade ES during Asia Open or Europe Open also

outside of hours


have no problem getting filled in the ES and YM and NQ

Use the Pace of Tape on say a 89 tick on es and 22 tick on NQ and Ym and you will see some trading opportunities.
