Trading the 6E

Hi everyone, this is my first post.
I have been trading the ES and NQ live for about 8 months, and SIM trading the 6E/6J for 3 months. I would love to trade full-time, but at this point I'm not profitable consistantly and now need to work full-time, so I would like to find out from fellow traders what is the best time to trade the 6E/6J?
I live in Toronto Canada and work from 9am-5pm, and want to ask, outside of my work hours what is the best times to trade the 6E/6J?

6E Trading


Yes if you cannot trade during US open. London is the best. Some days you can try Asia hours but should be ready for the chop.

Asia does have a lot of chop, but I've found it to be pretty predicatble and there is usually at least one good move at the beginning. If you don't want to get up at 2:00, I would sim it from 7:00 - 8:30 and see how you do. Just try to get 10 pips, which is really all you need, and quit.

6E is my main trading instrument, I trade it mainly during London and first hours of NY session. On the Asian Session is not simple know when it wants move and you mostly can incur in a long trade before getting some ticks.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

Ja, but anyway there some days it moves good during Asian session, especially on some particular news, and also u could try to develop some way to trade during Asian time, I never explored it much.

P.s. I would take a look at 6J, that maybe is better for Asian time.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

It pays to know a bit about the underlying currency . The yen euro and usd all are impacted by news events and move when 2 markets overlap . Check this and the news calendar to save some grief and be around when liquidity is present .

Forex Market Hours | OANDA fxTrade

For example today EURUSD played dead most of the day and its a light news week with a US bank holiday coming thursday so volatility was light .

Last week was a news tsunami all week and made for great volatility .

6E / TOCOM Gold

Asian hours are a dead spot for 6E. I've been mucking around with spreading 6E vs. TOCOM gold lately. I've been losing at it but am going into that spread again tonight.

volume trading the 6E


A side note to my previous question.
When I take a look at the 6E volume its no where near the ES or even the NQ. I know for liquidity getting in and out of trades you want more volume. I've been stopped out of trades to the pip, to just to see it turn around and go in my direction, and I know a lot of others have seen the exact same senario more than once.

What I'm wondering, are the market makers (who know where the majority of our stops are waiting) manipulate the market to where that big pile of stops are waiting, to cash in off us.
Having a smaller account size we(beginners) try to keep tighter stops and get stopped out more frequently, where traders with bigger accounts and bigger stops stay in those trades and profit where we get stopped out.
