Futures Trading during cash session

is index futures (e.g NQ, ES, TF etc) more difficult during the cash session? I find it particularly difficult to navigate around all the chop. premarket and even in after hrs trading is a breeze! Is it just me, or anyone else has had the same experience?

There is no chop. You are just trading too small of a time frame, ie scalping, making it near impossible on yourself to be consistently profitable. This has been discussed before in great length on many threads.

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)

of course there's chop on every time frame. Even on a 10 yearly NQ futures chart, you'd get chopped out

It depends what you're trying to do, and how (like so many similar questions), I think.

I've been watching NQ fairly closely, about four days a week, both in and out of Nasdaq RTH, for the last couple of months, and to me it seems the opposite: mostly inside Nasdaq RTH trading hours will be the times that I'll be trading it, myself.

There are days with less clear/substantial direction than other days, of course - as is true of any market. But "chop" is really very subjective, and timeframe-dependent.

What size of time/tick/volume bars are you looking at?

I have only 2-3 months exerience of watching NQ (particularly) and ES (less so), but my initial impressions are very different from yours ...
