The TF

I am moving away from my comfort zone of the YM to the brave new world of the TF. I must admit the only
reason I was in the YM was the $5 tck size, which allowed me to achieve larger stop targets that I
could be comfortable with. It's unpredictability is beginning to drive me nuts, however.

Now that I am getting quite used to losing money (you know what I mean). I feel I can now
trade a full tick size contract and risk the $100-$200 to have a proper stop placement, if needed.

Things I have noted so far...

1. Once a trend begins, it tends to hang on to it with minimum pullbacks.
2. It seems to fit my MA - S/R type of trading well.
3. Things seem to settle down pretty well after the first 15 minutes and trading can typically be
wrapped up withing the first 2 hours or so.


If I were to know just a few key elements of this market what would they be?

The best moving times of day, week and month... Things to look for / look out for, etc.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

A few observations of the TF that may or may not help.
Look at various hours of the day, pay particular attention to the top of the hour.
For example, what happens everyday at (pacific time) 7am, 10am, and 11am.
Look at a few minutes before and after these hours.
What do you notice?
Also what do you notice in the last 15 minutes before the close?
Hope this helps.

Exactly the stuff I was looking for...

I had noticed patterns with the earlier times you mentioned. I haven't been looking at the Afternoons.
I'm going to try and wind it up between 9and noon CDT. But I may wait until 1pm now.

I do notice a large run at the end of most days. As I mark my S/R for the mornings trades.

Thanks!

Yes, 11 EST seems to be a bit pivot area, either 10 minutes prior or after and again 1pm and 2pm.

I have discovered through if you hit the pivot/trend then most of them tend to trend well enough to make a good profit. A few of the guys in our trading group do quite well on pretty much everything. ES is a bit of a challenge though.

EMD and TF almost move identically.
