How do you see the overnight performance?

Apparently I'm having a "blond" day since I'm stuck at this idiotic question.

When looking at the overnight session, are you measuring the performance between today's last price against yesterday's 24h close or against the RTH close?

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

I generally look at the overnight low/high vs prior lows/highs (whenever they may have been created), and then look at the cash open vs cash close of prior session.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

"Change" is always measured from the previous day's settlement (ala midpoint of SP rounded to ES tick from 4:14:30 to 4:15:00 ET). But practically speaking, use whatever measurement you think will provide you with the most insight. There is no right or wrong here.

As Mike mentioned, the cash (4pm ET) close is an important number, as often the cash close and settlement differ substantially. If I had to pick one to watch, it would be the cash close.
