Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

There are two sessions that run concurrent. The Globex session runs "overnight" but continues throughout the day as well. Thus, there is no such thing as "an overnight session".

Also, I've read that the exchange has announced that they will be closing most of the trading pits by mid-year. Thus, the open-outcry session will cease to exist, leaving only a single trading session.

This is the thread that has been singled out as 'THE Crude analysis thread'

If everyone uses this one it keeps things organized and active.

Hi all, I don't seem to find any resource that states the official time for CL overnight/evening session? Here are the times I got from CME site:

Globex: 5:00PM - 4:15PM CT (ETH)
Open outcry: 8:00AM - 1:30PM CT (RTH)

My assumption is, evening session is taken with the context of RTH. So my assumption for the evening session would be:

1:31PM - 4:15PM CT
1:31PM - 7:59AM CT

I'm not sure if I am getting this correctly but please let me know what you guys use for overnight session times.


I dont think there are any official overnight hours. But I do divide my sessions into 2 and analyze them separately. My overnight session spans from 5 PM to 7:30 AM CT. The rest is RTH in my books.

How have you Oil traders got on with the last few days of CL?

Ive found it a bit choppy and light on the "real" volume side.
