Plotting High Low Close for Previous day, which close to use?

When dealing with ES. What do I consider as the close value for the day? Is it price at 3:15 cst? or at 3:00 cst since thats when the US stock markets actually close?

CME settlement procedures emini

The official closing price is determined by the CME at 3:15 CST (except for the last trading day of the month when they use 3:00 CST). I have never known anyone to use anything but 3:15, but if you are using data that is based on settlement prices, you will notice some differences on the last trading day of the month. CME settlement procedures are listed here End of Month Settlement Procedures.

FWIW, I use 3:00. That's when the US stock market closes. It's a significant level in my backtesting.

Maybe 3:15 is also significant?
