Trading from early AM 4am to 7am cst?

Does anyone Trading from early AM 4am to 7am cst

I have trouble finding time during US mkt open and couldnt wake up for London open at 2am cst either, but I am early guy so waking up 4am-5am cst is not problem.

so have been trying this. It is slower than mkt open but still 6E, CL, GC gives good opportunities. ES/TF quite slow at this time, so wont be good
thks

I think you will find that there is quite a few of us that do, as we are not all living in the USA and therefore we don't necessarily have the luxury of trading the US RTH.

I trade from 3am US ET to about 5.30am US ET. Some days are better than others in terms of amount of activity.

Just keep in mind that they eat lunch in Europe too

Best regards from Germany , most of the time in the year 6 hours "ahead" vs NYSE and 1 hour vs UK

We (DAX) "eat lunch" at 12PM local until 1PM . We usually (!) provide some patterns ( and I do NOT RECOMMEND trade anything at all , much much too dangerous that is !) at 09:30 AM local until 11:30 AM . Open is at 9 AM . Before 9 AM is noise but I like to see how our day starts at starting 6 AM´ish till 7:15 ... this is when we stand up and have a look at closing AP . So do I . One can sometimes see some trends .

After lunch , your early morning, 1:30 PM local , we tend to look too much how you guys on the other side of the Atlantic might feel today and this is when the bars again start to have some noise . As of 02:30 PM Germany, do not trade DAX , it is a CC of you .

Summary : DAX-Family and European currency " 09:30 till 11:30 local best"

Hope helps a bit .

Lobo

PS.: I do trade in my evenings at US Exchange , also some AP FX pairs during night in a 2 and 4 hours TF . I not trade my Friday evening after 5 PM because the majority of the ladies and gentlemen at the US StockEX´s appear to have very important meetings and no time to trade

Tks LoboTrader

appreciate the detail. I do DAX's movement in London/DAX session, but the per tick value - think $25/tick kind of scared me so i think DAX is not for beginners.
thks anyway

Totally agree ... me the same I you are into the futures . I never trade future , hobby trader only , and little money involved at all times . There is CFD though which one could trade with much (!) less risk @ 1 EUR/1 Point with "Brokername" Interbankenaccount . MT4 . There is even less risk available if you select "AnotherBrokername" which is whitelable of "Brokername" but allows you 25 Cent/Point . Spreads are not (!) competitive for frequent trade/scalping as they not charge commissions but include in spread . When I used them, I had 1 K€ at the account and traded in 5 Min TF upwards , smallest TF is 1 Min .

But again , I trade little money there, it is "fun money" , no trade4living (not even close to that) .

I can send you both names via PN but wish not generate any conflict with any-country-in-the-world-legislation and as this forum is global :-) I do not post the names straight . But no personal interest involved at all .

It is fun if you like to train/sharpen/test your skills and mindset and Demo Account´s are as useless to you as they are for me .

All the best, sleep well and than enjoy your weekend :-)

Lobo (just had lunch )

Oh , when I had chance to visit my parents in El Paso, TX , way back in 1984 that was , I enjoyed Coors ( brewed with pure Rocky mountain spring waters .... that´s at least , what was written on the can ) , with Salt and Lime .

THAT was tasting great as well ...

Best regards

Lobo

PS.: And hope nobody will be upset with me, having mentioned the brand . But you (Admin) will understand that C. is culture no brand . Agreed ?
