Thanks. I live in London and work a 9-5 job. Therefore, my window of trading "opportunity" is 8pm - 11pm London time. Given this what approach would you recommend if you were in my position? Thanks.

I see a pickup at 2am and then a larger pickup at 3am on the NQ so that would make sense, Frankfurt at 2am and London at 3am...

EUREX-futures (FDAX, BUND, eurostoxx50....) start at 2am EST, but the EUREX plans to start sooner some of their contracts, not sure if it will effect all their futures-contracts (because there is interest in Asia to trade this products).

Frankfurt and London start their Cash-session at 3am EST.
