Which chart is better to day trade e-minis off of: Globex or Open Outcry. I notice that moving averages and indicators give different levels/signals depending on what session time you are charting. Is one better or more accurate than the other?

I personally take my first trades off of the Globex and then after 40 mins or so I switch over to RTH only.

Same here. If I dnt have structure to lean on from the prior days RTH I will use Globex structure. Normaly after the 1st hour or so I'm strictly trading from RTH chart.
