Given what you wrote here, how can you say the US open is trivial for trading the 6E and measuring the effect of it by way of the initial balance ?

don't get me wrong. the us open is very important, but so is the european. the problem is, when the us session opens, have of the action is already over.

I like the initial balance for indexes, but for currencies I prefer fibs and fib confluences.

I have always wondered why we have a RTH open (8:20 EST) for the 6E ? there must be a reason behind this design, don't you think ?

symmetrical trade setup on the ES

One trade setup on the ES which has been around for a long time is the symmetrical trade setup when range extention above the IB = range extention below the IB or vice versa.

Does not happen every day but when all the stars are aligned as they were today can gives an opportunity.

I would assume you see this more on days when open around pivot and pa is range bound, I'll watch for it, I actually traded it today just bc it was right

I was more agressive today on the buy side due to what i saw (expectation) on higher time frames. I was looking for a good level to get long. The symmetrical trade setup offered the opportunity. I did not consider the daily pivot in this scenario.
