So, in most cases does it happen with a gap after the previous day close or during a session? How often does a limit move happen

It happens as well during a session as with a gap. Some reports are published during a session, some after the close.

To find out how often limit moves happen please have a look at the chart.

Best regards, Myrrdin

I am looking into scalping the corn futures (ZC on CBOT).
What are the most important reports affecting ZC and when are they released?

Also, I am planning to be watching the nearest two months of ZC as there are periods where both are liquid enough to trade and a lot of spreading is going on which might be helpful to decide which month to go long/short.

What other markets do you recommend I should watch?

-The calendar spreading is very competitive across the ag complex, especially in corn. I don't know how worthwhile it would be to watch the spreads relative to scalping outrights. I would highly recommend against trying to leg corn calendar spreads manually.

-Google is your friend when trying to find when USDA reports are released...

-If you're going to use limit orders I would advise reading up on the matching algorithm for the various ag products because you'll find the size you're trading affects your queue priority.

wow, I would like to thank everyone for their contribution. This forum rocks compared to some other ones
Considering all the information you provided I changed my mind and will not pursue my strategy in ZC. It was more dictated by looking for a market uncorrelated to anything financial but the cons outweigh the pros
